Love For the Ages

Love rules at any age. All the sweeter to find it later in your life… all the more wonderful to find it in a best friend. These two, their friendship goes way back… you could tell by listening to the toasts from people they have known since school. I got a real sense of their younger selves that night. I believe that the inner person ages much differently than the outer parts and I think it takes a long time for some younger people to “get” that. What I see in most older couples is a much clearer sense of self and a true trust in each other.

Kat and Roger called me about two weeks before they were to be married… since they live in the Virgin Islands, there was a shifting set of plans and it finally settled in at the Lan Su Chinese Garden. Instead of using the bridge, where countless ceremonies take place, they chose the beautiful Scholar’s Courtyard for their intimate crowd. It was just right!

Love is sweet in front of my camera… come see me, ok?

Splendid Light

Last Saturday brought us to a bright, breezy wedding at a sunny farm in Newberg… high in the hills on our first truly hot summer day this year. We had to do some dancing around our original schedule to accommodate the flavor of the light. There was no place to go until after dinner… that’s when the sun had gotten low enough to give us this lovely light for the softer portraits. What I like is that Betsy and Rob trusted me to make it work. We slipped out between dinner and the toasts… we only needed these 10 minutes but we couldn’t have had them at any other point in the day.

Keep your plans flexible if you can, you won’t regret it!
