{Erin + Dan} Aspen Hall Wedding; Bend, Oregon – A Second Shooting Adventure!

By: Wendy Roe

One of our dear friends and fellow photographer Marisa, who owns Marisa Chappell Photography, had to shoot a wedding….just a FEW weeks after delivering her beautiful baby boy.  She was a little worried, so about a month before, we talked and I jumped on board to give her a helping hand being a 2nd shooter.  I second shoot all the time for our company but it was my first experience 2nd shooting for someone other than Byron, so I was excited and nervous to work with Marisa.  It was a great fit and we both clicked on what was needed without much ado 🙂

Erin + Dan were fabulous (especially because I personally hadn’t met them before the wedding!) and easy to work with.  They seemed totally in the moment of the day, reveling in friends and family and their wasn’t an ounce of rushing.  We even had almost an hour to work with the couple for bride/groom portraits and Marisa and I got our creative juices flowing during that time too 🙂

Thank you Marisa for the invitation to work together, I had such a great time and was glad to make it just a little easier on you!

All the best,

Picture perfect clouds for a picture perfect bride and groom 🙂

Love the texture of the covered bridge here and a secret kiss…


The dress had the most beautiful diagonal ruffles!




I love it when kids get bored during the ceremonies and play in the aisle…couldn’t resist this one.








Colorful, fun bouquet’s from Blue Daffodil Flowers


I love champagne with berries, raspberries, blueberries…any berries.  Twist Cocktail & Catering did a wonderful job!
