The Back Story The Cottage at Riverbend Shoot. So I feel like I should be up front with the story behind this shoot. As a photographer I am all about getting creative. I think it helps me grow as a photographer and fills my cup. Sometimes I get caught up on the the social media […]
This Oregon Coast Inspired Bridal Session was all about bringing Idaho talent to Oregon beaches. I had the opportunity to shoot an amazing Coastal wedding in Oregon last month and I was so lucky to have this shoot come together. This shoot was beach inspired right down to the florals that were created. I mean air plants in a bouquet that’s just genius. With a fun color palette and florals at a whole new level. I like to think we brought Idaho to the Oregon Coast
First and foremost this shoot could not have happened without amazingly talented vendors. Gerald from Gerald’s Floral in Nampa was the mastermind behind all of it. I had mentioned to him that I had a wedding in Lincoln City and he was all about putting a shoot together. He not only drove from Nampa Idaho, he brought all the amazing florals from Idaho and his daughter came along to do hair and makeup and the Model was a long time friend of his. Literally this shoot would not have been possible without him and I am so thankful for his friendship and his amazing talent at creating stunning works of art.
The dress was given to me by an amazing bridal shop here in the Treasure Valley, B.B. Bridal has a gown for everyone. They carry an amazing selection of all shapes and sizes. This gown was made by Allure. It was gorgeous and the model rocked it. Thank you B.B. Bridal for this amazing gown.
The weather was hit and miss as it often is in the spring time at the Oregon Coast. I do not think the weather people know what is going on most of the time. Literally my husband and I were having breakfast at this little hole in the wall café and it is raining so hard literally coming down sideways. Thankfully it cleared up just enough to create some magic but it could have been warmer. I loved doing this sort of shoot, and it really allows me to really explore my creative mind. I am thankful for all the wonderful vendors involved that made this dream come true. This Oregon Coast Inspired Bridal Session was absolutely gorgeous.

River Bottoms Ranch located in Midway, Utah. It was one of the most incredible places I have had the opportunity to shoot at. This is a brand new venue located in Wasatch County. The nearest neighboring city is Heber City. It is just a short drive from Park City Utah. The owners Jared and Janica are a breath of fresh air. They are kind, down to earth people who have created a beautiful venue through and through. Brides to be this is the place!! When this venue is complete it will not only be a beautiful building it also offers many more amenities then the typical venue these days. From a suite upstairs that will offer overnight lodging to an amazing bridal suite that is breathtakingly gorgeous! The grounds outside are beautiful not to mention the view of the mountains from the venue.
Jared and Janica left no detail unattended. Not to mention it is honestly a photographers dream! The amount of natural light that shines through the windows is just incredible. There is a balcony that overlooks the main area and a beautifully designed bar area. Everything is so bright and well thought out. I am just in awe of all the details and thought that went
into creating this amazing space. Way to go guys!
I attended shoot that was put on by the incredibly talented Heather Benge. This was my first time attending an event that she planned. So worth it! The amount of talent and creativity is just simply remarkable. Everything from the florals to the table setup and small details were so beautifully planned. The color palette was not your typical color set up but somehow it all came together amazingly and each color complimented each other in ways I would have never imagined.
This experience was remarkable all around I am so grateful that I am able to explore my creativity and grow alongside of other talented creatives. This is what makes my soul shine bright! Capturing these moments have made me so excited to see what is in store! I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this amazing venue and all the brides that get to create their forever here.
River Bottoms Ranch, Midway Utah is an amazing venue for all brides and grooms.
