If you haven’t had the chance to visit Black Butte Ranch, make it a must-do. Central Oregon has so much to offer and this destination is one of the best. With its stunning views of the Three Sisters Mountains, tall aspen trees, and a pristine lake this makes for a spectacular backdrop for an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception for the lucky couple to exchange their vows and celebrate with their family and friends.
It was a few weeks ago when I was the wedding photographer for Erin and Scott. The venue they were married in was Black Butte Ranch in the city of Sisters, Oregon. I got delighted with shooting at Black Butte Ranch as it’s a very well known spot for weddings, Photographing there was very special, can’t wait to come back.
I started capturing at brides suite where Erin and her bridesmaids got ready for the day. As the makeup was applied and everyone’s hair was finished off I shot the small details and the developing story. The groom’s suite was a perfect place for Scott to prepare for his big day.
Whilst Scott was hidden away inside the venue Erin had finished getting ready and was en route to the venue in a stunning. The Aspen Tree Grove was a perfect location for Erin and Scott to exchange marriage vows. It’s moments like this that make my job as a USA wedding photographer so rewarding.
The reception was a success and everyone had a smile on their face. The reception was full of awe-inspiring energy and joyful laughter. Photographing the reception was interesting and heartwarming. So many moments were caught.
The more Summer weddings we photograph, the more we enjoy them. We had a really sunny day, which can make a big difference on the day, and made the photographs really sing.
Once the wedding reception was over it was time to listen to the speeches. Guests reacting as the speeches are delivered makes for exceptional storytelling photographs. The only left to do was to get everyone on the dance floor and rock out to the tunes coming from the DJ. A wonderful day.
Weddings like Erin and Scott’s make my job as a wedding photographer a pleasure and I’m sure they will be really happy together.
When we talked with Erin and Scott about what they envisioned when thinking about their wedding photos, they wanted their personalities to be captured. They told us that their friends and family describe them as silly, sweet and shy so it is those funny yet tender moments they want to remember from their day. Black Butte is a very special place to Erin and wanted photographers that could capture the beauty of the surroundings and the sweet moments in between.
