I’ve been wanting to blog this wedding for months! I’m so excited now for everyone to see these two people so in love. <3 I photographed Amanda + Josh’s engagement portraits, in a family style including three year old Makenzi, earlier this summer on Miranda + Andy’s farm in Peedee. Originally they were planning on an intimate ceremony at the farm in early September, but changed their minds in favor of a courthouse wedding plus a private vow service and honeymoon in Sunriver. …I was going to blog all the wedding and Sunriver photos together, but with a busy summer A+J decided to postpone their vow service/honeymoon and save it for a vow renewal. Yep, it’s been a wacky-busy summer!

Amanda + Josh were married at the Benton County Courthouse in early AugustĀ surrounded by their loving parents and with Makenzi at their side. Bright colors expressed the joy and happiness of their love and union in flowers and Amanda’s dress. I am so blessed to be part of this family’s many celebrations!
