The fabulous Jamie Jones Photography captured this adventurous couple perfectly. I’m loving all the gorgeous shots, these awesome outfits and this totally awesome couple.
What an adventure this shoot was! I made my way down from Portland Oregon to Bend Oregon where I met this amazing couple at their home to go over clothing ideas and then we drove to rock climbers heave Smith Rock. Chris and Julia share a deep passion for rock climbing and really wanted to incorporate it into their engagement shoot. Eastern Oregon has such an amazing climate and landscape for shooting, which made this shoot so awesome. in every shot you can just see how these two adore each other and truely love spend their time together. I loved being able to photograph them not only a portrait type way but also in a very journalistic way too:)

My close friends know that I’m a wee bit obsessed with nails (I’m guilty of having a nail polish drawer…which houses approximately 75 nail polishes). I probably own every color in the rainbow (in matte and glossy, natch!), and I’ve been known to paint my nails upwards of three times a week.
That being said, my wedding day nails have been on my mind big-time, and I’m not about to go “classic red” or an Essie pale pink. Throughout this process, I’ve been trying to focus on what feels like me rather than obsessing over the entire wedding looking “timeless”–heads up, no wedding is timeless because it’s one day long. Here are a few nail looks that I’d totally rock on my wedding day. Which is your favorite?

This week marks our two-month countdown! It’s getting very close and there is still a lot to do, but according to the checklist in my handy Brides magazine, it looks like we are right on track.
Here are the things on my to-do list:
- Dress alterations – I went in this week for the first fitting and go back about a month before the big day for the final one
- Plan the ceremony vows and any readings
- Collect and record the response cards
- Finalize my accessories – jewelry and heels
- Figure out if I’ll be printing menus and/or programs
- Collect songs for our DJ
Also, coming up in the next two weeks are the bridal showers and our florist preview while I’m up in Oregon. Time is flying!
