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. McMenamins Edgefield has a vineyard. A perfect setting for photographing the rings. Great image and I got to eat grapes right off the vine!!The 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. The water tower and this garden shed was another great backdrop for the Bride’s dress.Suitcase belongs to the Bride’s Aunt. Of course I had to use it!!! Love vintage!!My sister-in-law looked GORGEOUS on her wedding day. This image is so dreamy of Kirsten. IOne of my favorite images of Kirsten. 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. Here is my handsome brother! The very happy Bride and Groom!These photos are my wedding gift to my brother and my beautiful new sister-in-law, Kirsten of their special day.
