Romantic Seaside Bridal + Boudoir Inspiration

Koby & Terilyn Brown of Archetype have this way of capturing scenes that completely transcend beauty. It’s elegance drenched in seaside details that’ll have you perusing The Vault for more. With styling and blooms by the talented Roxanne Hallstrom of the Foraged Fern, it’s a gallery of goodness and it’s all waiting for you to dive in, here!

From Koby & Terilyn Brown of ArchetypeWe are excited to share this bridal inspiration with an unexpected mix of sheer romance. I love the rugged coastline in Oregon, and the early morning mist added a beautiful sense of mystery to our setting. The gorgeous beaded lace Joanne Fleming bridal gown was a beautiful contrast to the rocks worn smooth by the high tides. We took the bridal romance further by mixing boudoir into the shoot. It was important to keep the same feel of the bridal so the collection would stay cohesive. Shell Belle’s luxurious lingerie perfectly portrayed the bridal romance we were looking for… beautiful, light, airy pieces that almost make us look twice to see where the bridal stops and the boudoir starts. I hope brides will be inspired to add a little sheer romance to their own shoot, it’s such a fun way to mix sweet and sexy!

Romantic Rose Garden Engagement Session in Oregon

There are exactly a trillion reasons why I love Oregon and this e-sesh accurately depicts every. single. one. A city of roses that is blooming with beauty, this duo captured by the talented Maria Lamb shares an organic connection that is truly magnetic. Snapping humble moments of happiness, every moment is a paramount of pretty and you can see it all take shape in The Vault!

From Maria LambI have special connections with all of my clients, but these two really left an impression on me. Because they each have extremely busy schedules, they rarely get to see each other. Capturing their affection for one another came naturally during our time and I couldn’t get over how sweet and gentle they were!

The delicate florals and natural greenery of the surroundings of the arboretum, rose garden and park were the perfect backdrop to their tender love for each other. Their countenance was reserved and quiet, but they weren’t afraid to goof off and laugh together.I felt honored to capture this elegant couple as they prepare to enter in to a lifetime together!

From The Styling Team…Linda and Sean celebrated their love for each other and the PNW outdoors in a romantic wedding near Mt Hood. They exchanged vows surrounded by gorgeous mountains and lush greenery at The Resort at the Mountain. As many of the guests were traveling from out-of-state, The couple planned a full weekend of activities and fun for their semi-destination wedding. They set the tone for their soiree with custom spinner save-the-dates from Tie That Binds and welcome totes, full of local goodies, maps, and activity itineraries for their guests upon arrival.

Vintage maps, compasses, and wooden trunks carried the destination/travel theme through to the wedding and reception. Blum Floral perfectly captured Linda’s vision of lush, garden, romantic floral that complimented the natural mountain surroundings and local produce. The stylish couples love for adventure and outdoors shone through with a custom monogram cake topper and topography detail on the menus. In lieu of numbers, the couple named each table after one of their favorite hikes and displayed the luggage tag escort cards on “Linda & Sean’s Adventure Map”. Homemade jam favors, vintage globes, and natural wood touches filled this wedding with steal-worthy PNW beauty!

From Christa-TaylorWhat makes a wedding stand out is the emotions that I see and capture throughout the day. This wedding had all that and more. Linda and Sean are very different, but simultaneously a beautiful compliment to each other. Isn’t that what makes a good marriage? Two different people that help each other grow and become better together.

Their love story began online in a tiny town off the California coast and culminated in the verdant hills at the base of Mt Hood. To everyone watching, their love was tangible, happiness so deep it overflowed in tears throughout the day. For me, it was watching Sean hold his wife, breathing her in, while the golden light reflected off her dark hair…it was magic! Captured on fine art film, it was an evening to remember.

Rustic + Romantic Oregon Engagement Session

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!

Forever Fields Lavender Engagement Session

Building a beautiful beginning is easy when your e-sesh just so happens to look like this. I’m talking endless miles of lavender coupled with sweethearts sharing kisses. If you were to ask me, it just doesn’t get any better, but Anna Marie Film PhotoArt proves that it does in fact get better. And it’s all in a gallery filled with goodness! Revel in their beautiful beginning right over here!

From Anna Marie Film PhotoArt… When Corinna and Timmer asked me to take their engagement photos I was thrilled. I was even more ecstatic when they told me they had a vision of taking their pictures in a lavender field (Dreamy!). We headed on over to Lavender Fields Forever, which is a beautiful farm nestled in our Southern Oregon Applegate valley.

This venue perfectly accented their upcoming wedding palette of mint and lavender. I adore how well Fuji film brings out the pastel tones in this gorgeous setting. We combined some DIY calligraphy as well as florals.

It was such a pleasure being able to capture their love on film! Thank you guys for giving me the honor and congratulations on your wedding this upcoming year.
