OK OK OK let’s be honest, every single one of you guys know I have a major @taylorswift addiction. (but like, for real tho).
It’s true, if it wasn’t for 15 year old Saraya listening to “Love Story” and “ You Belong With Me” on repeat I probably wouldn’t be as obsessed with love as I am now, hence why I’m a wedding photographer duhhhhh!!!
BUTTTT can we please talk about her new album that JUST DROPPED last night?! I’m not gunna lie - I had no idea what to expect for this album. I mean can you blame me? She went from a young love writing song about the boy next door, to freakin’ SAVAGE in a hot minute so when I hit play on the first song on the album at 12am I was prepared for ANYTHING.
And well, all I can say is YO GURL IS STILL A TS FAN - like I seriously thought her album was KILLER and probably one of her best thought out ones (also applause to her that it’s her first album she’s actually owned HERSELF and not by Big Machine Records).
SO LET’S GET STRAIGHT TO IT. Some of my favourite songs on this album are “Lover” DUHHH cause its a total wedding song and well that’s my shit so. I also love “Paper Rings”, “I Think He Knows”, “London Boy” AND WELL BASICALLY EVERY SINGLE ONE LOL
BUT, I also FREAKIN’ LOVE “The Man”, like HOLY HELL what a power feminism move. As a female owner of 2 businesses, I absolutely think she SLAYED this song. LIKE YAS. GO GIRLS. WE ROCK! And plus, I’m not gunna lie I thought the line where she states that we live in a world where guys can flash their money around and get “bitches + models” and it’s okay, but if females did that “I’d be a bitch, not a baller” and we get painted out to be bad. LIKE EXCUSE ME? DID TS JUST SAY THAT? But for real though, absolute POWER song.
I’m also a HUGE fan of “Afterglow”, like what a damn MOOD. I think I love this song so much because it reminds me of her very early work, like it’s just the most lyrical song. And plus I love the line “meet me in the afterglow” - like let me tell you I dunno what the hell the afterglow is but it sounds like somewhere I WANNA BE LOL. DAMN WHIMSICAL LYRICAL GENIUS.
SO TELL ME - what’s your FAV song from the album and why?!?!? I NEED TO KNOW!!!!!!!✨🦋💘
I’m loving these alternating rainy and sunny days in then PNW lately. I love rain so much and it is one of the things that I missed when I lived in Hawaii and LA! People would joke about getting depressed when there was lack of sun and I would laugh and say, “I get depressed when there’s a lack of rain!” Rain revives my soul so much! Do you like rain, or prefer sun?

Last weekend we arrived at a wedding that I knew was going to be a beautiful one. Not because the are was beautiful (although, it was), but because I knew this couple was special and their families meant the world to them. In Brianna’s first email to me, she told me that her parents are still very much in love and that her dad has brain cancer. My heart immediately went out to her. It had been just a few weeks since we lost Peter and my heart was still so raw.
As she told me more about how special it is for her to be married at her grandparents property in Alsea and how close she is with her family, I knew this was going to be a moving wedding. ..
When we arrived, everyone was so welcoming and made us feel like we were part of their family. Telling us stories about one another and making sure we had everything we needed. .. So when I shot this photo during the ceremony, after the groom had kissed his mom, I knew I had an image that speaks many things for them. ..
I want our work to always say something. And not just today, but tomorrow and the next day. ..
This is why we choose a more documentary approach to our weddings. Moments aren’t going to go out of style. Moments tell a story that can be shared throughout time. .. #annenunnphotographers#eugeneweddingphotographer#weddingphotography#oregonweddingphotographer#oregonweddingphotography#oregonwedding#documentarywedding#documentaryphotographer#documentaryweddingphotography

C + D’s wedding is now on the blog. Head to the bio and follow that link to see more of this stunning wedding as shot by CHP associate photographer Danielle. .
And to all my clients, thank you for your patience and grace as my life is currently shifting seasons. Yes this summer my Instagram was full of travel, family and photos but my real 9-5 and real passion is teaching. Connecting with students, hopefully being a real life influencer, a cheerleader, mentor, and everything in between. So that means more coffee, more stress, and more time delivering galleries. It doesn’t mean less passion, because trust me the passion is there. This candle burns at both ends and some days are hard, but who doesn’t have hard days? This year I am focusing on the positive and trying to constantly be positive and surround my self with positivity. For my kids at school and also my kids at home. To stop answering “how was your day today?” With “ughhh long”. To strive for my best, give my best so I can share my best. .
Can I get a ✋🏻 in the comments if you want to come along on this positivity journey with me and try your best everyday too? C’mon you know you want to!

I’m in a real good mood today. Probably just about as good as this guys! PS I’m photographing his wedding next weekend and I love so much that I’ll see familiar faces 🥰
One of the things that has been the most as I’m reminiscing over here is watching my growth. The changes I’ve made in how I edit as well as my interactions with my clients during sessions.
One of the best things about photography is that is constantly changing. There is always room to grow and figuring out who you are as a photography. To connect with your style, but to not be stuck. You can always change.
This is something I think that’s we can take into life. Change is good. Growth is good. If nothing is happening, you should probably figure out what can help you move forward.
And spring evenings on the @welkerfarmsinc will never disappoint. Got to love the Montana prairies.

The Sparkler exit...Love everything about it+definitely one of the most fun ways to end the night!!💥
We didn’t get any mountain views yesterday, but we saw more marmots than I have ever seen in my life. One even jumped on Alex’s leg. You can definitely tell they are very much used to people feeding them here which is actually pretty sad. I think they were so intrigued by us because we were probably one of the few people that refused to feed them. On a more positive note though, look at the babies!! 💕
What a gorgeous wedding to be a part of. We love the perfection of this boho chic hair and makeup look with that beautiful venue, and bouquet captured by the amazing @gabriellevonheyking ✨ Hair by Kerstin ✨ Makeup by Erika
Groom details becoming a favorite thing of mine to photograph. All of my grooms this year have had the best style!
Enjoying a bit of a lazy morning in Portland before I head to the beautiful Columbia Gorge this evening for Jenna and Ethan's bridal portraits! So excited to spend the evening in such a beautiful place. Get ready for alllllll the film!
Just finished shooting a wedding and off to go grab some yummy food with @donnailinphoto 🙌🏼 Who said you can’t have a wedding on a Thursday?

A few months back while planning the workshop, I asked Steph and Dex if they would be down to model at it!...they agreed and I was so excited! Then a few weeks ago Dex texted me asking if he could propose during the session. I said HECK TO THE YES and got even more excited!!! I am so happy for these two and I’m so happy we were all able to witness such a perfect moment in their lives! Congratulations @dexyb12 and @stepheniejeanneee
