Lexa & Eric: Oak Grove Church

Lexa & Eric said their vows earlier this month at the cutest little white country church that Lexa found in Rickreall, Oregon. Oak Grove Church was established in 1882 and is surrounded by vineyards, hayfields and orchards for miles. The church and gorgeous backdrop made for the perfect place to have a wedding!

These two met while traveling together on a ministry team in college Lexa & Eric became friends and soon that friendship turned into a more serious relationship. Eric proposed to Lexa this last December at Canon Beach and she said YES!

Oregon is where I grew up I was over the moon to be able to go back home to photograph Lexa & Eric’s wedding surrounded by the green trees and beautiful countryside that I will always love. I am so so happy for you two! It was an honor to be part of and document your day and I wish you both the very best as you serve the Lord together in ministry! -Megan

Bianca + Joel: Wedding in Victorville, California

Bianca and Joel are two very sweet people and it was a joy to be part of their wedding day in Victorville, CA. They met in college while they were attending Pensacola Christian College. One of my favorite things about their wedding day was that you could sense just how much they loved their family and friends. Although it was Bianca’s big day she didn’t hesitate to congratulate her good friends on their pregnancy during her wedding reception. Her friends had been trying for a long time to have a baby and they told Bianca at her wedding that they were expecting. Joel and Bianca are a lovely couple and I am so excited for them as they begin their journey together as a married couple. Below are some images from their wedding. Enjoy!

Lancaster California Wedding: Kayla & Jonathan

Kayla and Jonathan were married on November 20, 2009 at Lancaster Baptist Church in Lancaster, CA. They met as teenagers and absolutely adore one another. Their wedding was absolutely beautiful and they both looked amazing. One of my favorite parts of shooting a wedding is the time in the ready room with the bridesmaids and the bride. Excitement is bubbling over, girls are rushing to get all spiffed up and the Bride is the center of attention. As the photographer I feel lucky to be able to stand in the background getting shots of the little moments between the girls and the stunning details during this “ready” time. It’s such a fun and exciting time just before all the action begins. What a joy it was be a part in their day and I wish them all the best in years to come.

A few of my favorite wedding photos!

Just got off the phone with a friend after discussing wedding photography and all the details of starting a business. I was reminded of how awesome it is to capture a couple’s wedding day and how much I love it! While there is stress and pressure on the big day it so pays off when I get home and download the images! So here I am thinking about how much I love it as I am browsing through some wedding photos and thought I’d post some of my favs!

Such a pretty flower girl!

Dave & Britt were such a sweet couple to shoot. They were absolutely head over heals for one another! Brittany’s Dad went home to be with the Lord in 2006. Her Dad was an organ donor and she was able to receive part of his knee latter that year when she had to have knee surgery. In a very special way Brittany still got to have her daddy walk her down the isle!

Sparklers are one of my favorite endings to a wedding. They are so pretty and the Bride and Groom look awesome running through them.
