To Michael; From Tara: Pre-Wedding Engagement Photography; Five Pines Lodge Sisters, OR


Dear Michael,

You are the man of my dreams and my “real life” prince charming. This has been an amazing fairly-tale love story of how two people fell in love. I would have never known love like this existed if I wouldn’t have found you. I was drawn to you the moment I met you. I will never forget all those nights on the phone that we talked until the sun came up.

In you Michael, I have found the love of my life and my closet, truest friend. I love everything about you~ your smile, your cute dimples, the sound of your voice, the sparkle in your eyes. I love the warmth that I feel when I am at your side. Every time I see you I fall in love all over again. I love how you make me feel relaxed and bring a smile to my face even when I am stressed or upset. I love every once-in-a-lifetime moment I share with you….. Today, tomorrow, forever!

I can’t wait to walk down the aisle and become your wife, your life long partner. This will complete our commitment to one another and start the next chapter of our lives together. I love you sparky!!!!



Tara + Michael,

Okay, we had to go with a country tune here in the slideshow because we LOVE the fact you laughed and said that he’s takin’ a little of the ‘city girl’ out of you and brought on the country 🙂  We’re so stoked to have had the kind of initial meeting we had with you…so serendipitous to the point of being freaky!  We look forward to meeting your brother and his girlfriend (evidently our twins in a lost life) and seeing you two get hitched at your Five Pines Lodge wedding in Sisters, Oregon next year!  As a prelude (and because we wouldn’t have flowers in February), the engagement session was there among the yellow flowers and some close fun spots nearby 🙂  Thanks again you two and enjoy!

Classic symmetry, beautiful lines..and a little playful!



The sun peaked out in Sisters when it was gray and gloomy in Bend.  Perrrrrfect light.

This is dreamy…Tara, you’re gorgeous!


Life wouldn’t be complete without some fisheye love…

Always pushing the envelope, we’ll put this one in our creative folder 🙂
