This Mt. Hood wedding is just so close to my heart I can’t even describe it fully. I have to say that Mt. Hood Skibowl is now one of my favorite wedding venues because wow, I mean, the images speak for themselves. Amanda and Trevor couldn’t have found a more picturesque venue that is the embodiment of all of the beauty Oregon has to offer.
Amanda and Trevor’s day was so emotional and joyful and magical. Everyone there was so full of love and ready to celebrate this 7 ½ year love story. I cried multiple times this day, though sometimes of laughter. Cried along with Amanda and her sisters as she walked down aisle, cried with laughter when her dad forgot to give Trevor a hug at the altar, cried during the incredibly heartfelt speeches from their very dear friends and family, and danced and sang with all of their best friends to close out the night.
I always have moments in this job where I’m reminded of why I love it so much. Yes of course it’s fun going to beautiful places and photographing beautiful people and getting to be creative. But, the real reason I love my job is all of the meaning behind everything I create and who I get to create it for. That’s the part that makes my heart flutter. That’s the part that keeps pushing me forward. Amanda and Trevor invited me into such an intimate day and were completely open with me so I could capture it exactly how it was. I am so beyond grateful for that. It’s couples like this that allow me to create my best work and to make art out of their love stories.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart A + T, I love you guys.
