Alissa, Vitas and I met at one of my favorite places in Oregon to shoot: the stunning Cathedral Park in Saint John’s. Something about this park makes you feel wrapped up in its beauty and aware of how wonderful life can be. It was the perfect place to get to know Alissa and Vitas, who seem so confident that they have found their forever person. I love photographing couples for whom smiling comes so naturally, I found myself subconsciously smiling just looking at their images! Photographing such a kind couple’s late December wedding at Cooper’s Hall will be the perfect way to end the year!
