After meeting in a bar room blunder, these two cuties started traveling the world together but their greatest adventure just might be what's right ahead of them as they get ready to say their "I do's." But before that big leap later this summer, they headed to Oregon to explore Wahclella Falls, while Maria Lamb snapped away, capturing plenty of postcard-worthy pics to reflect on for years to come.

From the Bride-to-be... 11 years ago I took a waitressing job at the local college bar to help pay my way through school. A few weeks in I turned the corner too quickly and ran into the bar-back who was carrying several cases of beer. Behind those cases of beer was the cutest guy with bright blue eyes and a smile that suddenly made me feel a little bit better about the mess I’d just made. I was mortified to say the least, but took the opportunity to introduce myself. Brad and I became fast friends and eventually started dating.

We jointly discovered a passion for travel and set out on numerous trips around the world. In September 2014 we planned a trip to Turkey and Greece. We had a list of sights to see, places to eat and little to my knowledge, a place for Brad to propose. A private evening cruise on the Bosphorus in Strait Istanbul, Turkey will hands down always be my favorite adventure. It is where Brad asked me to marry him and I joyfully accepted.

We both love the outdoors, so we wanted everything about our wedding to reflect that. We found an incredible wedding venue just outside of Lake Tahoe, California and set the date for a late August wedding.

Photography was a top priority, so I started researching shortly after we booked our venue. Maria’s images spoke to me the moment I saw them and I knew I had to talk to her. It was love at first chat and Maria was quickly booked to capture our wedding day. We opted to take advantage of Maria’s portrait session and booked a weekend adventure to Oregon. It was magical to say the least and I am so thankful we did it. Maria and her husband Jordan are two of the most genuine, fun-loving individuals to spend a day with. We immediately felt like old friends, which made the entire experience so special. As you can see from our photos, Maria has an amazing talent for capturing the moments in between and the raw beauty of Mother Nature. I can’t wait to look back at these photos over the years and remember just how young and carefree we were.

We simply can’t wait to see what she will capture at our upcoming wedding!
