Last month we got to head back to Heiser Farms in Dayton Oregon to film Chris & Kelsey’s wedding. This was the second time we we’ve shot there and we just love the wide open feeling of the place. There were no clouds in the sky and it was hot, and while it’s really nice to have a little clouds for the day, we were looking forward to our ten minutes of sunset portraits with Kelsey and Chris.
We met these two at the Portland Bridal Show and again at a Portland coffee shop in Ladd’s Addition a month before the wedding. We were told their day would be one big party and it certainly was. I think my favorite part of the film was when everyone got on the tables and danced during the Jason Durelo “Trumpets” song. It was right as we were packed up to leave, but I had to get the camera out to capture that moment. There was barely any light and the footage is a bit grainy, but this seemed somewhat like a tribal ritual and I had to get it on camera haha. They also told us a little bit of their story of how they came to be together, and I feel like we got an amazing glimpse into their lives together during their vows and when their siblings spoke during the toasts. Other moments and shots we loved were when Chris’s brother danced with Kelsey, the drone shot when the couple entered the reception(Tiff waited forever for this shot:) and the sunset photos where Chris is holding Kelsey.
We had so much fun with these two, and the vendor team was lovely as well. It was one of those days that just rushes by in a blissful blur and where we feel so blessed to have this as our job. Hope y’all have a wonderful week!
