{Carrie + Richard} Broken Top Club Wedding Photography; Bend, Oregon

I have to admit that this wedding was definitely a highlight of our 2012 weddings!  {Carrie + Richard} are fun, adventurous (Carrie said yes to all Byron’s ideas without a hitch!), crazy in love and two of the sweetest people we’ve ever met.  It was one of those days where everything came together beautifully: the decor details elegant, the bridal party a delight, families with 100% love and of course the light and venue – magnificent!  It just happened to be during the Pole Creek Fire in Sisters nearby but the haze in the sky only added to the magic light and warm tones of the images captures.

I don’t know if you two have ever thought about a modeling career but seriously, you both can work the camera and have smiles that melt images!  Okay, I’m just saying that if both being lawyers doesn’t work out, it’s plan B 🙂  On a serious note though, we had such a blast photographing you both in this journey from your San Francisco engagement, to your wedding and the awe-inspiring trash the dress session at Smith Rock State Park.  Thanks again for trusting us completely and choosing us to capture this experience for you.  I just can’t wait to deliver your album!

All the best,

B + W

Moments before the first look….Carrie is 1/2 Hawaiian and all the family had orchid leis.

Byron captured this fabulously…seeing both Carrie and Richard’s expression in one frame (see reflection!)


Yowzers, that’s a hot bridal party!







The crazy candy table…I snagged some Fun Dips.  I haven’t had one of those since I was 12.

Yes, this ex-gymnast was not afraid of hanging 4′ in the AIR in her dress.  Oh my.  Wendy was having a mini heart attack in the background 🙂
