The Gambler & the Thief

Have you heard the sweet melodies of The Gambler and the Thief? Because you should. They. Are. Awesome.

I first met Tim and Vanessa while collaborating on a benefit concert in Bend, Oregon for Otino Waa Children’s Village. After getting coffee with Vanessa and hearing their music, I was so pumped to have them as part of the music line up along with Precious Byrd.

After the show, they asked if I’d be up for doing some photography for their band, The Gambler and the Thief. They’re relatively new to Central Oregon, having lived all over the US, and Vanessa really loves the high desert, so we headed out to one of my favorite locations.

They are too cute.

The Twins

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may remember Steve and Geena’s gorgeous Tulum, Mexico beach wedding from a few years ago. Or you may have seen their adorable family session with their little guy Haulton from about a year ago. But today I get to share a little peak into their most recent family shoot, welcoming their TWINS!

Meet Reed and Davis, the newest addition to their family. These little guys are so sweet and I just love their little chubby cheeks. Steve and Geena make the chaos of twins and a 2 year old look like a walk in the park. I really admire their relaxed, fun parenting approach. Thanks for letting me get to capture these precious moments on film!

Bille Jo + Seth Wedding

Living in Central Oregon really makes you appreciate the little things in life…like green grass, deciduous trees, and tiny daisies sprinkled all over a park. That was the backdrop of Billie Jo and Seth’s adorable park wedding in Philomath, OR. They are such a sweet couple! Here are a few favs from their wedding.

Armature Wedding {Bend Oregon Photographer}

Hey friends!

Today on the blog I have this incredible wedding that was located in Shevlin Park and at this super cool location called the Armature in Bend Oregon. Armature is this super cool venue tucked away among artist studio space and shops, right near the Workshop and the original Sparrow Bakery.If you haven’t spent time on Scott Street, you should put it on your list!

So, I hate to play favorites, but Travis and Valerie are a super cool couple. They epitomize so much of what a Bendite is: active, adventurous, kind, beer-lovers and they care about their community. And they are SO. IN. LOVE. I had a blast photographing their special wedding day. I actually met them through some past wedding clients of mine (Steve and Geena) who were married in Tulum, Mexico. I got to say a hello to Ryan and Alyssa who now have 2 beautiful kiddos, to view their wedding click here.

All that to say, although Bend growing rapidly, it still has that great small town feel and it’s filled with awesome people. I love running into past clients and seeing the seven degrees of separation.

Enjoy this lovely Central Oregon wedding. Life is good friends.
