I started listening to Johnny Cash after I saw a biographical movie about his life. I was moved to say the least. Despite the hardships he faced, right or wrong, or the problems that he dealt with, he had a love so deep which never died. The object of his affection; the beautiful June Carter.

From the get go, this was going to be a difficult task and I wondered how they would ever wind up together. You don’t choose love, it chooses you. And there you have it. The epitome of their story.

He worked so hard to win her over. My gosh, it was spectacular. It was truly inspiring to see and it deeply touched me.

So a few years ago, I decided that I wanted to photograph a session as a tribute to their love story. This shoot has a more modern feel to it, but nonetheless, I was more interested in capturing the essence of the pair including the sadness, the happiness, and the coyness.

I am so happy to finally share this session. It truly has never left my mind and I am glad that I was able to bring it to fruition.

Thank you to the wonderful pair, Augusto and Kelly, which helped me make it happen. They were amazing to work with. And of course to the fabulous hair and make-up artistry of Amanda Enos. Once again you show us your versatility!

I am so privileged to have photographed this stunning Oregon botanical wedding shoot at the Joel Palmer House in Dayton, Oregon. So much to share from this, but I’m posting a little teaser today.

I worked with an amazing group of vendors and am positively thrilled at what we accomplished. From concept to execution, my colleagues at A Vintage Soiree styled this stunning session. So much more beauty coming your way!

Summer is almost officially here, so why not kick it off with a Wine Country Summer wedding inspiration shoot. In the hills of the Willamette Valley, this bridal session offers up a combination of pastel pinks, luscious greenery and a mix of vintage rustic details.

For those who love the outdoors, there is no denying the absolute dreaminess of a reception among the earth and the stars. This beautifully appointed rustic reception table is adorned with a lush floral runner, vintage china and gold cutlery. The unique brown medicine bottles offer a vintage and elegant way to showcase the florals.

The stunning bride to be dawns a soft, blush strapless chiffon gown. The invitations conjure up a romantic side with greens and pinks, so softly complementing the organic tones of the details.

We hope to have inspired brides and create a color palette that will woo our summer brides!

One of my first sessions using 35mm film! So excited about that. Leave a comment to let me know what you think!

I have been inspired, by a love story, for many many years.  It’s about a love that changes lives. It always stayed with me and I vowed to portray it on camera. Here is an image from a little project that has been near and dear to my heart.

It makes me so happy to be able to finally share it, well only one image for now. But I hope you’ll come back soon to see more of a musically inspired love story!
