When Sarah messaged me and asked if I would be her wedding photographer, I was thrilled. I had taken Sarah's Sister, Annie's, Wedding photos three years ago, and I find it absolutely flattering to receive a request for a second wedding from a family. Especially this one :) The Scroggins family has four daughters and one son. All four girls are adorable and have great style. I knew Sarah's wedding would be full of fun stylish surprises...and I was right!
The wedding was held in Walterville Oregon, just outside of Springfield. My family is from the area and I was excited to head down for the weekend from Seattle, for this beautiful country wedding. The old building where the wedding was held, holds the most amazing hidden room behind the stage. The room had beautiful window light with whimsical lace curtains, and worn wood panels. I was able to get some gorgeous shots of her putting on her dress here.I absolutely adore the above photograph of Sarah! She looks so glamorous with her birdcage veil and pearls. Notice her pink lipstick! Oh how I love this small but sweet detail. All of her bridesmaids wore the fun lipstick as well.
Within a mile of the wedding location were three great locations for photographs. Having different locations, or looks for the photo sessions makes the day more fun and the pictures abundant with variety. For the bride and grooms first meeting, we headed to the orchard across the street. The sunlight falling through the spring leaves made for a wonderful setting. The color these fresh bloomed leaves gives is more of a vibrant lime green, and I do love lime green :)
After the first look we headed to Hendricks Bridge Park to take the wedding party's photos. If you don't know this about me, you should... I love TREES. I love them for their color, texture, shade, shape, sheer magnitude, and most of all the beauty they bring to any picture :)
Location number three for photographs was taken after the ceremony... and it is my favorite. We will get to it soon. Here are some detail shots from the wedding. Sarah has created a feel for the wedding that fits with the location and style. It is always beautiful to see a couple come together in marriage. The ceremony often gets overlooked in the pictures department, but it is one of my favorite portions. Capturing the life, love and emotion is always exciting. I always feel honored to play a roll.Look at this great old Walterville Grange Hall, coupled with the perfect spring Oregon day, Anthony and Sarah's wedding day was a beautiful celebration!And this sweet little one is Jackson Bradley, Anthony and Sarah's son. He has such a big smile, it makes me happy.Next to the grange hall was a beautiful field, which was calling my name all day. As the sun was going down we snuck away for the romance of the soft light. I love the rolling hills of the Willamette Valley and those trees in the distance. Congratulations Anthony and Sarah!
