Central Oregon Rustic Ranch Wedding

Thank goodness it’s Friday, and to make it that much sweeter, we’re sharing this happy-hued Oregon ranch wedding. Captured by Marina Koslow Photography, this big is exactly what the ceremony programs promised: “It’s going to be a bright, bright, sunshiney day.” Head to THE VAULT to see all the summery shades of orange and yellow, the Bride’s on-trend removable skirt and even more pretty.


From Marina Koslow PhotographyKate and Brian married on a clear summer day at Brasada Ranch Oregon. When choosing the venue for their event bride and groom wanted a true getaway wedding, where family and guests could relax and spend time with each other without the city rush. Kate and Madison of A Native Bloom chose a lovely color palette of flowers that truly captured Kate’s vision for the day: simple yet sophisticated with warm bright tones of summer. Their ceremony took place outside overlooking the ranch and mountains with a cocktail hour and reception following. It was a beautiful day filled with hugs and laughter and a it was a true privilege to witness it.

Intimate + Organic Sauvie Island Engagement Session in Oregon

Love is a remarkable thing, for even in the event of natural disaster it remains un-shook and stronger than ever. Take this pair whose friendship evolved into undeniable love and after an international reunion, a proposal. It’s a story that proves there is always a silver lining when it comes to the power of love. See their beautiful beginning captured by Jamie Rae Photo in THE VAULT!

From The Bride…Sometimes things in life are meant to be. In Late April of this year, I had said goodbye to Andrew for 4 weeks as he traveled to Nepal for a world conference about public health. It is always hard knowing you won’t see someone for a little while, but this was a great opportunity for him. Two days after that, a massive, deadly earthquake shook Nepal. I hadn’t heard from Andrew for days, I wasn’t sure if he was able to make it to safety and I was trying to keep my mind from going to the worst case scenario. Would I ever be able to see him again?

I finally heard that he was safe but forced to stay in the streets as almost every building had collapsed, no running water, no food. I immediately booked Andrew a flight out of Kathmandu to Thailand (one of the only airlines flying out). The flight was delayed for days but he finally made it and I heard that he was safe. We were able to actually talk. Because he still had nearly 3 weeks left in his travel plan, he wanted to make the most of it and explore Thailand. He asked me the next day if I would be able to join him overseas to travel with him. Thanks to my wonderful manager and coworkers, I was able to get last minute time off work. I joined him in Thailand.

After experiencing a natural disaster and tragedy, suddenly you gain clarity in life. You can easily discern what you can and can’t live without. For Andrew and I, we knew we couldn’t be without each other. One week into our international reunion Andrew proposed to me, on a picturesque white sandy beach surrounded by turquoise waters and stunning cliffs in the middle of the Andaman Sea. He fashioned me a ring out of a vine, plucked from the island that I still have. It reminds us of the special memories we made in spite of a terrible situation and the promise we will keep to stand by one another through all of life’s wonderful and challenging times.

From Jamie Rae PhotoBy nature, Lauren and Andrew are helpers. Lauren spends her day as a nurse assisting and caring for women with cancer, and Andrew is a medical professor who studies epidemiology- specifically, how to care for and prevent childhood obesity. These two first met in an anatomy and physiology class that Andrew taught, and a professional level friendship was formed. Years later they reconnected with a group of colleagues, and it was then that these two realized they had more in common then medical study. In addition to their compassionate nature, this warm couple is funny, approachable, and intelligent- and full of romance and affection for each other.

I photographed Lauren and Andrew on a warm September evening on Sauvie Island. Our time was filled with laughter, interesting conversation, and a romance that is evidence in the photos.

Pastel-Filled Oregon Engagement Session

After seeing the lush, wild and romantic bouquet from this Oregon engagement session, I’m convinced every e-sesh needs one. That, and beautiful pastel dresses, a gorgeous garden setting and, most importantly, a crazy-in-love couple like this sweet Bride- and Groom-to-be. Savor each and every special moment captured by Katlyn Marie PhotoArt in THE VAULT!

From the Bride-To-Be…The first day I officially met Alex was December 31st, 2013. He was a nice, down to earth guy and we had easy conversation. With conversation we both found out that we have Greek blood on our dads’ side of the family, and we both have Greek last names! That was pretty exciting for me to find someone who enjoys the Greek culture as I do. Our relationship has been very fun, easy, and natural! He’s very sarcastic and has just brought a lot of fun to my life this last year and a half that we’ve been together.

From Katlyn Marie PhotoArtUpon meeting this couple I could immediately see their love for each other and their very colorful personalities! When thinking about how to style this engagement session, I was certain I wanted to make it colorful but sweet! This pastel inspired engagement session was a dream, and showed Alex and Jessi’s fun love in every frame!
