why central oregon weddings?

Central Oregon weddings are absolutely captivating. It’s perfect destination for family and friends to enjoy.  There are legendary mountain peaks, crystal clear waters,  endless rock formations,  and more.  You are surrounded by the Cascade Mountain Range, Deschutes River, Ponderosa pine forest and the high desert.  Central Oregon has endless outdoor sports, including mountain biking, hiking,  fishing, rock climbing, camping, paragliding, white-water rafting, skiing, and golf.  In many of the towns such as Bend and Sisters you have access to the city with the rough terrain and adventures only minutes away.

Find a wedding venue that has flexibility, allowing for larger groups with relative ease and outdoor options. Sunriver Resort, House on Metolius, Black Butte Ranch, FivePine Lodge, and Pronghorn Resort are some of our favorite.

Below are some tips for capturing exceptional photos for your central Oregon wedding.

welcome
gatherings

We believe in helping brainstorm epic experiences for our couples. We know from all the weddings we’ve photographed that a “wedding weekend” spread across multiple days provides wonderful opportunities for loved ones to connect. Spontaneous and unpredictable “in-between” moments bonds everyone together. Welcome gatherings give people a chance to speak longer than intruding on a wedding day, everyone gets to feast together, play games, and time for great conversations.  What better way to set the mood and feeling for your wedding day. Welcome gatherings also mean we get to capture that much better of a story! So awesome!

getting 

ready

We love telling the full story. That’s why we begin early.  We like to settle in, connect with the mood and scene, and become one with everyone. We want to capture all the unusual and surprising emotions, dramatic light, and have time to discover storytelling compositions. We divide and conquer to equally capture the bride AND the groom. Whatever you let us do, we will do it. 

landscape
photos

Capturing the “entire setting” with you in it is always one of our top priorities. We believe in shooting high, low, far, close, and will roll in the dirt for anything to tell a story. Cinematic photography with multiple dimensions is what tells a great story. Landscape photography (with you in it) is one of our favorite. These images make for great Wall Art because they tell a story and happen to have you in it. Awesome!

epic 

party photos

The dance floor is one of our all time favorite places to photograph. While we use our off-camera flash all day long for specific moments, there’s nothing like lighting up great expressions on the dance floor. We work in teams to cast the most dramatic light on your friends and family having the time of their lives. We’ve mastered off-camera flash and shoot thousands upon thousands of photos on the dance floor capturing the best of the best.
