Kennedy and Max’s wedding was at a private wedding in Canby, it was close to their home and the perfect location for a summer wedding! There was enough space for tables, a dance floor and a ceremony site. There was also a sweet little cabin for getting ready on the top of the hill that had a great view of the field!
I know Kennedy and Max because Kennedy and my husband, Avery, are actually cousins! And so it was so much fun being able to capture a family wedding. It’s truly such an honor any time I take photos for our family because I know how cherished the photos will be and how they’ll be passed down to our relatives.
There were so many special details throughout their wedding day, like their first look moment, spending time reading their private vows, participating in communion during the ceremony and so many joyful emotions that took place!
We started off their wedding day with some getting ready and detail shoots. Kennedy also did a first look with her bridesmaids, dad and her brothers. And then Kennedy and Max had their first look before taking couple, family and wedding party portraits. And then after the ceremony, they did their first dance and there were toasts and lots of dancing! It was such a special day!
The photos from their wedding day were so romantic, joyful and excited with a bit of a western to fit the theme of the wedding. Kennedy and Max were very easy to pose and prompt and we got some really beautiful photos to best capture their wedding.
I loved shooting this wedding so much because, not only are they family, but their officiant, Zack, also married and my husband! There were so many close friends and family members that got to share and enjoy the day with us. And although I was working on their wedding day, it was still so rewarding to be behind the scenes with them and photograph all of their little moments!
