My Brother, Tobin, Gets Married!!

I had the pleasure of photographing my Brother’s wedding to his lovely bride Kirsten in Portland, Oregon at McMenamins Edgefield, a gorgeous setting. The wedding was very much a family affair. My sister, Lara, got ordained to marry Tobin & Kirsten. Kirsten’s cousin, Rickey designed the flowers and Kirsten’s niece, Ashleigh did the hair and make-up. 001 LogoMcMenamins Edgefield has a vineyard. A perfect setting for photographing the rings. Great image and I got to eat grapes right off the vine!!DSC_8187 logoThe day before the wedding, I walked the grounds of McMenamins Edgefield and was enchanted by these birdhouses and knew that would be a perfect setting for the Bride’s Dress. I got up at sunrise and had my sister hold an off camera flash to illuminate the dress. I just love this image. DSC_8240 B&W LogoThe water tower and this garden shed was another great backdrop for the Bride’s dress.DSC_8216 LogoSuitcase belongs to the Bride’s Aunt.

I put this look together the night before the wedding as I was inspired to use another light source besides natural light or a flash. We were staying in a house on the grounds of McMenamins Edgefield. I saw these velvet drapes that looked so dramatic, I dragged the chair and lamp from other rooms. Next day got this great image of the bride. 076 Photographer's Favorite080 Blog Photographer's FavoriteHere is my handsome brother! 003 LogoDSC_8290 Logo171 Blog Photographer's FavoriteThe very happy Bride and Groom!004 Logo156 Photographer's FavoriteDSC_8506 Logo cropped and Photoshop333 Photographer's FavoriteThese photos are my wedding gift to my brother and my beautiful new sister-in-law, Kirsten of their special day.
