I love how creative people get with the details of their wedding, and I know how much time and effort is put into each one.  So I always want to make sure I capture as many details as I can, whether candidly or set up.  One tip about reception details…if the reception area/room is not at the same location, or not ready before the ceremony, have the guests enjoy a cocktail hour while we finish up the formals and I take pictures of the reception room.  Or, if that’s not possible, try and at least reserve one table so I can capture the table shots undisturbed, because nothing says beautiful wedding details like bread crumbs and wine stains! 😉

My favorite detail is usually the bouquet, and I loved this random orange chair that was at Brittni & Morgan’s wedding at Mt. Hood Organic Farms (love that place!  Actually, I love pretty much any location in/near the Gorge).

Gotta love a Darth Vader cuff link!

Cute little kid shoes…

Lucy’s bouquet from on a chair at the Nines Hotel in Portland!

Three from one wedding…my blog, my rules! 😉

    I like the tennis shoes with the date on it. That’s cool.

The portraits and candid moments from a wedding day are definitely my favorites to capture (which is why I posted them first and second!).  Here are seven of my favorite story-telling moments from 2009…
