Allison + Ryan | A Behind-the-Scenes Teaser

My good friend and photojournalist, Susanica Tam, sent me the following picture of yours truly photographing a lovely couple in the forest. The bride and groom are my peeps Allison and Ryan. Allison, who is a fellow Wedding Bee blogger, alias “Bear Cub,” invited Justin and I down to their Oregon Coast nuptials. It was a weekend wedding bonanza at the secluded Camp Westwind that included a bonfire, hiking, cabin camping, a cliffside ceremony and even MORE cliffside handfasting. Uhmm, can we say HECK YEAH?!

So, anyway, Susanica, her pal Jonathan Moore, Justin, and I photographed the hell out of this wedding. And, pardon my French, but it was that awesome.We left that wedding a lot richer in friendship and camaraderie. Allison and Ryan were so creative, authentic and hilarious. Their friends were just great. And we hit it off instantly with Jonathan and Susanica, with whom we shared a cabin. We ended the weekend with all four of us, newly acquainted but feeling like old friends, driving up Coastal Highway 101 from Lincoln City to Seattle, stopping along the way to eat seafood, sample Tillamook cheese, and kick off our shoes in the Cannon Beach sand. (Not to mention the late-night eats at Kushi Bar in Belltown. OM NOM NOM.)

It was probably the best weekend of my summer.

Here’s the aforementioned photograph, and the shot I believe I was lining up at the time. Consider it a teaser of sorts. Much, much more good stuff is soon to follow.

I’m so excited. You have no idea. 😀
