Casey and Josh | Bend Wedding Photography

There is something so refreshing being around people who can only be described as pure of heart. Casey and Josh are like this. Both of them are kind, understanding, forgiving, loving people. They are polite and friendly and happy. They both have a lot of personality, but they are completely unselfish and treat each other with the utmost respect. Being around these two actually made me envious of their kindness but at the same time want to strive to be a better person myself. Casey and Josh, who both go to OSU with me, celebrated their wedding in their hometown of Bend, Oregon at one of their church’s properties, Rockin’ B Ranch. I love central Oregon so I was super excited for the opportunity to take some portraits in a slightly different landscape. Luckily for me, these two were super cooperative and creative and let me take a MILLION portraits of them throughout the day

Casey started off getting ready with her friends and family

Josh wrote her a poem, it was SO CUTE. She was totally cracking up

They had their first look right away.

And we started wandering around the ranch to take more pictures of the two of them

Loved this old fashioned truck

When I had arrived it was raining, but it stopped pretty quickly and the sun came out while the sky was still full of clouds and I was left with some of the most phenomenal natural lighting I could have ever asked for

These two can definitely be a little goofy at times, haha

The lighting was still perfect in time for their incredible outdoor ceremony

They did a little science experiment instead of using sand

And a beautiful backlit foot-washing ceremony

Bubbles are the best! And can you see that sky? It was made for them

After a receiving line, I took even MORE pictures of the two of them! And took advantage of the sunset of course

Found an old buggy

And some hay

And a swing underneath a Juniper tree! But I decided I just liked the tree itself minus the swing, haha

Love how peaceful and happy they looked

And then it was on to the reception


Cutting the cake…

First dance…

Garter toss…

Bouquet Toss…

And dancing

And ended the night with a sparkling send off! Congrats Casey and Josh! It was a pleasure working with you both
