{Joelle + Jared} Downtown Bend Oregon Wedding Photography, Zydeco and Crosswater

We are so excited to share the beautiful smiles of {Joelle + Jared} in their wedding weekend adventure recently in downtown Bend, Oregon and Crosswater Golf Club in Sunriver.  Such a beautiful, relaxed two days brought out the real stuff and what makes a wedding so powerful: the teary toasts of family and friends, the surprise and overwhelming smiles of a first look, the joy of melting two families together and the skipping of kids in the sunset playing games outside.  This wedding had it all and to top it off, Joelle + Jared are beautiful both inside and out!

Their chemistry easy and love obvious, thank you both so much for letting us share and capture this for you!  It was a joy to participate in your wedding day, even to be seated as a surprise at a fun-loving table with your family!  We look forward to staying connected and seeing what the bountiful future brings you both.  Life sure is good.

All the best,

B + W

One of our all-time favorites, Joelle you are so fabulous!




We love this image because of the symbolism of the parent rings on top and the necklace gift to Jared’s daughter presented during the ceremony.

The most fabulous smile!

We had two ‘First Looks’…here’s the first with Joelle’s dad.

The second ‘First Look’ and smiles all-around.






All eyes on Joelle!
