Meg & Matt :: Married! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

This wedding was a little extra special – it was the wedding of my beautiful sister-in-law! I was slightly nervous going into the day… something about photographing your own family. But the wedding was a blast, and really to no surprise Meg and Matt were excited, laid back and ready to get married! It was awesome! Matt – welcome to the family! It was hard to limit the number of photos to share – so I apologize in advance for the long list of photos 🙂

This was a beautiful backyard wedding! Liz and John went to huge efforts to get everything looking nice and perfect for the big day. The Jenga game set was made by them, with their names and wedding date engraved. The day was perfect and everyone had a great time. Congrats to you both!

Andrea & Andy :: Married! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

I have known Andrea and her family for probably 15 years – so I was really excited when I found out she was engaged and they asked me to photograph the wedding! I got to know Andy during the engagement photo shoot we did and have enjoyed getting to know him a little better since. These two are great to be around – fun and laid back. It was a pleasure hanging with you two throughout the big day – congratulations!

Belen & Tony :: Married! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

Here are some favorites from another July wedding (two more to come after this!). This wedding continued a pretty amazing streak of receptions with great dancing – the bridal party and guests were ready to celebrate and the dance floor was never dull! Belen and Tony were down to earth, relaxed and just happy to be getting married. And I was happy to be a part of it! Thank you guys, and congrats to you both!

Kristin & Daniel :: Married! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

I must say, this was my type of wedding – hints of the University of Oregon logos in the details; GO DUCKS! This was the first wedding I have photographed where I had not met the bride and groom in person (we discussed details on the phone and swapped emails back and fourth) – and it wasn’t a problem at all! Kristin and Daniel were so friendly and laid back that it took mere seconds to get comfortable and have fun!

We had a great time with you guys – congratulations, and GO DUCKS!!!

Jessica & Bradley :: Married! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

It didn’t seem like that long ago we were meeting Jessica and Bradley on the beach for their engagement photos, and next you thing you know it’s wedding time! The day started off a tad stressful with the Keizer Iris Parade blocking off any possible access to the wedding location, but once we all got on site everything went just fine – even the rain held off!

This turned out to be a great backyard wedding, with some wonderful family and friends and delicious bbq! Congrats to you both – hope your time in Hawaii was wonderful!

Andrew & Angie :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

Not only were these guys fun to work with, but the weather was absolutely stunning! The day was just perfect… in the middle of February near the Oregon Coast. I could feel the excitement that these two had all day, so excited to marry one another! It also showed in the happy tears during the ceremony. It’s weddings like this that make me love doing what I do.

Congrats, Andrew and Angie! We loved being part of your big day!

Non-Visual Essentials

How do you pick a wedding photographer? It’s not easy, and in my opinion it isn’t as simple as price and appealing sample photos. There are plenty of blogs that go in depth with this question, so I will only highlight a few things I find essential. Most people shop by the visual samples on a photographer’s website, Facebook page, or portfolio. But, I warn shoppers to look for some non-visual elements to the photography package…

1. Backup Gear: I am shocked at how many people I know that are photographing weddings with one camera and a few lenses. This is very common with low-budget photographers. The reality is that cameras can, and eventually will, malfunction and fail. What happens if this occurs in the middle of your wedding? What if the photographer accidentally drops their one lens? When hiring a wedding photographer, always make sure they have backup equipment – or risk the potential of not getting any photos.

2. Insurance: If the photographer doesn’t have backup equipment, it is unlikely they have insurance. If the worst happens, who’s going to pay for it? Accidents happen, and unfortunately accidents can be very expensive. If the photographer is liable, how will you recoup the loss or expenses? You can try litigation, but most likely a budget photographer won’t have many assets to pay for damages.

3. Off-Camera Flash: This may not always apply, and there are many photographers that specialize in beautiful natural light photography. However, I have been to a few weddings with very dark receptions, and been surprised when I have seen a photographer trying to get photos without a flash. For receptions with a lot of light, this may not apply. But if you think your reception or ceremony might be on the dark side, it’s worth asking the potential photographer how they can deal with that.

These are just a few things to consider when shopping for a wedding photographer. In general, be cautious with low-budget photographers – you tend to get what you pay for.

John & Aubri :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

My wife and I left town for the weekend to hang out with some friends in Idaho. The day before leaving town I had the privilege of shooting John and Aubri’s wedding in Corvallis. I think Aubri may have been the giddiest bride I’ve worked with yet – all day long she was smiling, laughing and so excited to be marrying her best friend. The wedding was wonderful and everyone I met throughout the day was so kind.

I haven’t had a chance to go through all the pictures yet, but did find one I wanted to post as a teaser. There are a few more on the Facebook page, and I’ll eventually post a few more when I get a chance to sit down and go through the photos.
