Visually narrating emotional connections


15-minute Bridal Portraits // The Dalles, Oregon.

How you must have suffered getting accustomed to me, my savage, solitary soul, my name that sends them all running. So many times we have seen the morning star burn, kissing our eyes, and over our heads the grey light unwinds in turning fans. - Pablo Neruda

Love is not easy. As wedding photographers, we're privileged to capture the highest of the highs and none of the struggles that were fought and prevailed to get to the altar. There are disagreements, uncertainties, letdowns, and anger -none of which is rarely expressed when it comes the celebration and union of love.

With only 15 minutes to shoot with a dumeril ground boa, I scrambled out to The Dalles, Oregon with a wedding gown from designer Holly Stadler and met Hayley at her place to shoot some magical images. 

Be afraid, but confront your fears. Love hurts for a good reason.
