When I first began my photography business I only dreamed of a day when I would be able to shoot a wedding like Ryan + Jenn’s. The type of day that took place at as stunning a venue as Bend’s own Brasada Ranch, with a gorgeous setting and no detail overlooked. So when this beautiful couple from California (but native Oregonians at heart!), somehow found their way in front of my camera, I truly could not stop pinching myself. Couples like this are what make the joy of being a wedding photographer too wonderful to believe. And considering that not even the littlest of details was left untouched, Ryan and Jenn still somehow wanted nothing more than for their guests to genuinely enjoy themselves at the celebration. I think it’s a testament to how wonderful and kindhearted and wildly fun they both are. This is the type of couple I cannot believe I’m fortunate enough to get to work with.
Ryan and Jenn, while I’m so happy you two are now Mr. + Mrs., selfishly I’m sad that I no longer can look forward to the incredible day that was your wedding. You’ve been nothing but a joy, truly, and I cannot thank you enough for inviting me into your lives and letting me document your story. Your day was flawless and my only regret is in not finding a way to relive it day after day after day. I hope every time you see your pictures you’re able to experience even one ounce of the happiness that was your wedding. Thank you to the moon in back. I’m so, so grateful to know you both!
P.S. I HOPE BALI IS UH-MAZING!!!
