Yearly Archives: 2008

We just added a new page to our website called “Raves” where we snagged bits and pieces from our amazing clients thank-you cards and emails. Not sure why we didn’t post this stuff earlier!? 

Check it out on our website!

PS- The image was taken at Michael and Shelly’s wedding reception at the beautiful Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood. It started snowing… in AUGUST!! Luckily the reception was inside the nice & warm lodge.  🙂 

For most all wedding photographers in America, this is by far the busiest time of the year. Bethany and I have shot 7 weddings in the past month and have another this weekend in Michigan and then another the next weekend in San Francisco. So, it’s been a bit crazy to say the least! Emails need responding, calls need returning, and we’re up to our eyeballs with photos to edit and albums to design! 

We’re not complaining in the least bit because we absolutely LOVE our career as photographers but at times you get a little weighed down and tired. But then…. then…. I arrive at the office this morning @ 10 (after editing photos till 4:30AM last night) and I click on the email from Megan & Kelly, who’s wedding we had the honor of photographing on Saturday. Their words from the email after viewing their slideshow:

OH MY GOSH!!!!!!!!!  we have just been oohing and aahing and laughing all morning!!  those pictures are all just phenomenal – not that i am at all surprised, just thrilled above and beyond any possible expectation.  you both are just insanely talented, creative, present, magical!  kelly and i can’t believe we get to enjoy these the rest of our lives – can’t believe there are more where that came from!!  
thank you, thank you, thank you, blaine & bethany.  we don’t even know how to begin to thank you.  

much love – m&k 


All I can say is wow, that feels sooo sooo amazing to provide our clients with a product they are beyond in love with. That is what gives us so much satisfaction and it really makes us realize how fortunate and blessed we are to provide couples and families with great photos they’ll forever cherish. Can’t wait to photograph our next wedding now!  🙂 

Here are a couple photos of Megan and Kelly from Saturday, and you can view their entire slideshow here!

Wow, we’ve gotten soo behind on blogging the weddings we shoot… we’ve been shooting too much and not blogging!
We always get the slideshow up within a day or two of the wedding, and then get the rest of the photos up within 2-4 weeks, so even though all that stuff is already up, we still like to blog about them too. 🙂

So here are some of our favorites from Jake and Ashley’s wedding at the Mt. Hood Bed & Breakfast. Their wedding day had some crazy weather which you’ll see in the photos! The day started off being totally clear, hot, and muggy, and then it quickly clouded over and rain was threatening the ceremony. Luckily, the ceremony went off without a drop of rain (beautiful clouds for our photos) but literally 15 minutes after the ceremony, it started DUMPING rain like crazy. The reception was all set up to be outside, and had to be quickly moved inside. All the guests helped out and everyone did it with a huge smile on their face and had lots of fun. Including Jake and Ashley! 🙂 Luckily the Mt. Hood Bed & Breakfast has an inside backup location for when the rain comes like that. The reception was quickly moved inside and looked just as great inside as it did outside.
