Orchard wedding in Eastern Oregon // Tara + Vinnie

I had the honor of shooting my childhood friend's wedding in Milton Freewater....I know, I hadn't heard of this place either until she told me where she was getting married. Although it's a small town outside of Tri-Cities in Washington and about 45 mins outside Pendleton, OR, it was absolutely gorgeous. Talk about the amount of land to roam through. After living in the Portland Metro area for so long, it was amazing for a change of scenery.

Anyway, it was so hard to keep it together at their wedding last Saturday. With T+V, it was an endless flow of waterworks. I have known Tara since the first day of kindergarten! That's a long time. I have cried with her, played dolls with her, celebrated birthdays, and figured out how awkward bras were at age 12 together. I listened to this love letter that the man of her dreams, and the father of their babygirl, wrote for her. I listened to her mother-in-law snob at the sight of her son with an amazing women. What could be more heart string pulling than that? I am so proud that they chose me to be there wedding photographer and now their lifelong friend. Congratulations T+V!
