Megan and Ryan

When my friend, award winning photographer Ean Perkins of Studio190 called one Saturday morning with "What are you doing today?" I almost immediately said, "Yes!"

I met Ean one year at the PPO Summer School. When he found out I was going to shoot my first wedding later that year, he graciously invited me to photograph/assist at weddings he was photographing so I could get some practice. How cool is that?

I quickly got ready and headed down to Kaizer, just north of Salem to the afternoon wedding. It was cloudy and a bit breezy too. Fortunately the rain did not come down, and the wedding and reception went smoothly. The wind only blew over two pillars.

Weddings can be stressful for all involved, but it is also one happy occasion where family and friends come to celebrate and give their best wishes to the newlyweds. It doesn't take long to be drawn into the celebration. And having the privilege to document the joyous occassion? Awesome.

Congratulations Megan and Ryan!!

These are a few of my favorite things

I love photography. I love food. I love to photograph the food I eat. I love to eat the food I photograph, when I'm allowed. I love to photograph the food I make, on rare occasions when I'm so inspired. Only at the difficulty level of say, waffles, however...

We bought a waffle iron earlier this year, so on Saturdays when we're not traveling, I'd make waffles for the family. With blueberries on top. And whip cream too. The reserve of frozen blueberries was running low, so we went out to Majestic Farms and picked some more...

"This is your face, Daddy." said the little girl.

I kinda prefer this one myself...
