Karisa & Jason || Columbia River Gorge Wedding

I have been pouring love into their day starting way back with save the date and invite designs, helping dream up centerpieces and decor, chalkboards and florals.  I got to help so much in the process, I really couldn't imagine not being able to photograph it.  But knowing that it would be a busy day as sister of the bride, I knew I couldn't do it on my own.  I am so thankful for Gabe Photography for also making the trip out west so that he could collaborate along with me.  This really was a team effort.  While he captured all the quick moving, big pieces of the day (the putting on of the dress, all the formals, and the incredibly breathtaking ceremony images) he generously gave me space to capture the quieter moments.  Their first look and a mountain view sneak away after they said I do.  For that, and his friendship, I am so filled with gratitude. 

Karisa and Jason's day was perfect.  A chance for two families from different states to cozy in and get to know each other in a little mountain lodge. It showcased the adventurous spirit both of them share as well as the love they pour into their community.  From the intimate ceremony in the woods, to dancing the night away with people who traveled from all over,  I struggle to come up with the words so I will let these photos tell the story.
