I am always excited when I get to travel for my work and when Kasey + Ryan reached out to invite me to photograph their Mount Hood Wedding, I was ecstatic!
They met, actually, on Mount Hood, which was just a beautifully romantic setting for the celebration of their love.
Our day started at their beautiful cabin near the mountain, surrounded by friends and family that have witnessed their story unfolding over state lines between Oregon and Minnesota.
I whisked Kasey away to Mount Hood where we met Ryan to have their first look. On our way up the mountain, Kasey told me of how they met working on Mount Hood during the ski seasons. They instantly hit it off and were fast friends and before they knew it, they were in love.
We had a beautiful portrait session before heading over to a family's Italian-like house that made us feel like we were in an Italian vineyard!
During their vows, Ryan said that the first time he ever saw Kasey smile, he fell in love with her. And seeing how she smiles at him, I can certainly see why.
Not one eye was dry by the time the ceremony was over and Kasey + Ryan couldn't hold in their joy. They were simply glowing.
We ended their day with her dad's smoked fish/chicken tacos, playing lawn games, and blowing bubbles.
What a beautiful day it was.
