Here are a few o
Callie and Jacob were married last summer and were my first "official" clients when I jumped into the craziness of wedding photography. They took a leap of faith allowing me the opportunity to document their day (having only worked as a second-shooter previously!) They were married at Oakview Acres in Canby, OR and their wedding was right up my alley...country-rustic with a pop of glamour! Callie made the most beautiful bride and Jacob the best love-struck groom. Throughou
