So I am starting a campaign here at emily g photography, it is called the “Get Crystal & Troy to move to Oregon” campaign. Why you ask? Well when you travel all the way to Chicago for an engagement session, then spend an entire day at a stunning Oregon winery with people you kind of bond with them. And these two are wonderful people. Sweet, kind, funny, and oh so stylish. Well I have decided that they are so wonderful they should move to Oregon and be my friends, so there you have it.;)I kid, but really I adore these two. Their wedding was so beautiful and full of love. It was an intimate affair being a “destination” wedding. Friends and family flew in from all over the US to share in their special day. I love it when a couple really has a chance to spend time with each person in attendance.

some times I take photos of my friends.

sometimes those friends are incredibly talented photographers.

sometimes they are also beautifully giving people too.

sometimes we hang out in the golden sunlight and take photos of eachother’s families, and I am grateful for that.

take a look…

Some of you might remember little Welly from his birth & newborn photos. I can not believe it has been a year!

Bryan & Leah thank you so much for trusting me to document these parts of his life. It has been so fun to see your little guy grow, and to see our families’s friendship grow too. I just adore you guys.:)

I love all kinds of weddings, big ones, small ones, glitzy and handmade. I admit it, i am a wedding junkie. But every so often one comes along that tugs at my heart strings. Heather & Kenneth put together an extremely beautiful, personal, and touching wedding. Every detail was special to the couple from the custom green silk gown, to  food & table names, to the set up of the ceremony. The event was held at Heather’s parents stunning home in the hills above Newberg & Hillsboro. The views were amazing! The whole day was a pleasure to capture. It was also great to work with a new friend. Andie was my second shooter for the day and captured some of the images you will see below.

On to the images!

Heather & Kenneth, thank you again for having me out to capture your day. I had a great time with you guys, and your amazing Friends & Family. I hope you have enjoyed your sneak peek! I will have the whole gallery for you very soon. Friends and family if you would like to see the gallery please leave a comment below.

Readers of my blog should find this next family very, very familiar. First we celebrated their love with an engagement session with fun socks and book, then we captured a stunning winter wedding, then just a few months ago I was capturing a growing belly. Well Charlotte & Katie are back and now there are three! Miss Molly was born this August to two beautiful Mamas that love her ever so much. Molly was so good for me, and so beautiful. I love that she got Katie’s mouth too! She is sweet, gentle and just a little spunky, she will fit right in with her house hold I am sure.

Dear Molly my name is emily, and I will be pointing this big black clicking thing at you your entire life, it’s nice to meet you.:)

Here are a few of my many favorites from our session together.

Katie & Charlotte, thanks again for meeting up with me and introducing Miss Molly. She is just divine, I am over joyed for you both! I can not wait to see her and your family grow in the next few years.   It really is my honor to capture this special time in your lives.:)I will have the whole set for you guys very soon. And you know what is next right? Blog comment challenge time! If you can get 30 people to make a comment on this little post I will throw in a set of brag books for you on the house. So leave some love people!
