Chic Country Wedding

Chic Country Wedding

Jennifer & David Harrison

Jennifer and David are awesome, and their wedding was too. They got married at Paradise Springs, which is outside of Monroe, Oregon. The venue was breathtaking, and the party was a blast. We're always happy to work with Joshua Rainey and if you watch close, you might see a shot of him working his magic with some medium format film. Blue Bus Creatives brought their awesome photo swagon. If you haven't seen their custom VW Bus photo booth, you need to check out their website. 

Star Wars Baby Announcement

I'm really excited to share with you that my family of 2 is growing to 3. I have always known that I wanted to be a father, and now I'm stoked to start that journey. My wife Bailey is amazing and has endured that I am a nerd at heart. When we found out that we were pregnant she decided that she wanted me to make an announcement video. Of course I took this to mean produce a short film and make something ridiculous. (I'm still unsure if she expected this)

While we were on vacation in Bend, Oregon, we were lucky to catch a beautiful sunset on a snowy golf course. This was all shot in about 45 minutes to an hour. (Which probably explains the lack of character development and plot) Everything was shot on the Sony FS5 with the Atomos Shogun in RAW DCI 4K with various Canon Lenses. I spent most of the time using the Freefly Movi M5 to create cinematic motion to the shots with a few Tripod shots thrown in. 

The film was edited in Adobe Premiere and After Effect with a bit of help from Andrew Kramer and Video Co-Pilot's Saber Plugin. If you want to start working in after effects, spend a dark year in front of your computer watching his tutorials. They are awesome and eventually worth your time.

I have to thank my awesome wife for enduring my silliness and allowing me to do this.

Oregon Coast Fireworks

Oregon Coast Fireworks

July 4th, 2016

It's been quite some time since I've gone to see a fireworks show on the 4th of July. This year we decided to head out to the Port of Siuslaw in Florence, Oregon for their annual show. It was a blast! There was a small farmers market, a few street performers, and a lot of locals enjoying the show. People of all ages joined us out on the docks. The Coast Guard even came out. We shot a mix of UHD (consumer 4k), high speed 1080p, and stills.  I hope you enjoy our view of the festivities. 
 

List of equipment used:

-Stills: Canon 5d Mark III with Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L

Sweet Cheeks Winery Wedding

Sweet Cheeks Winery Wedding

Kerry + Nathan

Today I am revisiting one of my all-time favorite weddings. This wedding was beautiful from start to finish and we were really happy to help the Thompsons share their big day.

Sweet Cheeks Winery is easily one of my favorite wedding venues near Eugene. It is intimate yet it feels big. The rolling hills of the Willamette Valley highlight their beautifully green vineyards. They make some great wine too.

Make sure you pay attention to the awesome parasols that Kerri picked out for her bridesmaids. Definitely a unique and beautiful accessory. I also very much appreciate the trend of having dessert tables with lots of great treats. 

The header photo was taken by the one and only Joshua Rainey. We love his work and we love working with him. You can check his work out at www.joshuaraineyphotography.com

St Mary's Catholic Wedding

St Mary's Catholic Wedding

Claudio & Kaylee Cruz

Kaylee and Claudio had such a culturally rich wedding. We had a blast capturing the joy of their big day. St. Mary's Catholic Church is a really beautiful and also challenging space to work in. Check out the beautiful stain glass windows and brick bell tower. It was so much fun to capture the history of that space.

The reception was held at Emerald Valley Golf & Resort. It was highlighted by not one, but TWO live bands. This group danced till the wee hours of the night and nobody could stop them. We had a blast and we hope you do too when you watch their wedding film!

Oregon Coast Engagement Shoot

Oregon Coast Engagement Shoot

Easily the best weather I have ever seen on the Oregon Coast in fall was today during the engagement shoot of Paul and Katrina. We couldn't have asked for a better day, no wind, rain, or freezing temperatures is a sight to be seen in Florence, Oregon this time of year. This couple made it easy to take some stunning photos. And to cap off an awesome day we were blessed with a gorgeous sunset. We're so happy with this set. Take a look and tell us what you think!

The President Comes to Eugene

The President Comes to Eugene

It isn't every day that you get to see a 747 land in Eugene, Oregon, let alone Airforce One. Unfortunately this visit comes in the wake of the UCC shooting in Roseburg, Oregon. Our prayers go out to the families who received a visit from President Obama on Friday. No matter our political views in this matter we have to stand with these grieving families. Here are a few photos and a 4k video of the planes and helicopters landing and taking off at Maholn Sweet Field (Eugene Airport).

Check out the 4k footage of the takeoffs and landings in this quick video! This was definitely the most unique collection of planes I have ever witnessed at the Eugene Airport.


Oregon Vineyard Wedding Film

Matthew & Janelle Coury

We had so much fun making Matt and Janelle's wedding film! They are genuine and truly amazing people. Janelle is a great photographer which means we knew we had to be at the top of our game. This wedding ceremony was held at the Eugene Faith Center and reception at Noble Knob Vineyards. Their photo spots were really awesome. They made us feel like we were standing in an old forest. Take a look at their wedding film and let us know what you think!

Ogren Gardens Wedding

Ogren Gardens Wedding

Derrick & Kaylynne Fain

Recently I got the opportunity to be a second shooter with Joshua Rainey at Ogren Gardens in Eugene, Oregon. (Check out Josh's images here. His work is great!) The landscape at Ogren Gardens is breathtaking, and the flowers were in full bloom. 

Kaylynne should probably quit her day job and start modeling. She is definitely comfortable in front of a camera. The whole party looked great. The navy suits and dresses contrasted the bride's dress beautifully. This wedding was awesome to be a part of.

Mt Pisgah Wedding

Mt Pisgah Wedding

Ami & Joshua Orr

Ami and Josh are awesome people. The Arboretum just outside Eugene, Oregon was a perfect scene for their wedding. It was highlighted with golden fields and giant oak trees. It made for some very pretty images.

Ami's ring is one of the coolest I have seen. It is a combination of her own engagement ring and both of their grandmother's diamonds. Check out their photos.
