Justin & Kim - Salem Vineyard Wedding by Emily Cook

Justin & Kim! We are so excited to share the Coleman wedding with you all! This day was held at the Chemeketa Cellars in Salem, & it was such a perfect location & beautiful day! Justin & Kim were coolest & most down to earth coupler ever. We had such a great time getting to know them & being able to witness & capture their love. Heath Florist did an incredible job on all the floral arrangements for the day, & we were swooning over Kim’s stunning Watters gown from Bridal Exclusives! Congratulations to these two!

Kailia & James - Elegant Oregon Garden Wedding by Emily Cook

After doing a downtown Portland & Latourell Falls engagement with these two, we were thrilled to join them on their stunning wedding day! James & Kailia were married at the Oregon Gardens in Silverton, Oregon. Their adventurous & loving personalities shone through every detail of this wedding, from Kailia’s gorgeous BHLDN wedding dress, to the stunning mountain-themed cake from Roth’s Fresh Markets. Best of all, we got to witness the joyful love of two people who’re obviously perfect for one another. Here are some of our favorite moments from the day! Congratulations to Kailia & James!

Cory + Bekah. {illinois wedding photographer} by Emily Cook

Cory & Bekah. This wedding was a reminder once again as to why we love photography for work and for play. It is self-expression, communication, and celebration of others. There is something so incredible about being able to freeze a moment in time, knowing that one day you can look back at that time, and feel whatever emotion you were feeling in that moment. 

So many people truly value photographs, yet don't hire a photographer because they don't want to be in a situation that feels totally uncomfortable or unnatural. Yet being able to bring out the best in others, and capture them in a way that is true to who they are is one of the great privileges of what we do! Not only do we hope to provide our clients and new found friends photographs that they can treasure over a lifetime, but we get to connect with each other, and create a space for creativity and beauty! 

Thank you, thank you to Bekah & Cory for allowing us to be a part of your most beautiful day! Your love for each other was astounding to witness! & here is to happily ever after!
