Getting Ready Brasada Ranch

Outdoor wedding Brasda Ranch

Just a sneak peek of Ali and Dave’s wedding day images from their wedding at Brasada Ranch in Bend, Oregon.  This was a beautiful wedding with views looking towards the mountains. There were so many wonderful details that their wedding stylist and planner Kayla from Brilliant Wedding Co incorporated. The reception was lined up with farm tables that were built just for their wedding by at Heirlooms & Co along with the other wonderful outdoor furniture you see.

Ali and Dave chose not to have a cake and therefore had a Maracron cake instead by Foxtail Bake Shop and therefore had a Maracron toss in each other’s mouths.  It was pretty fun.

Other Rentals were O’Brien Events, West Coast Event Productions, La Tavola Linen, The Swig Rig, Calligraphy from Sophia Love Letters, Silks by Tono & Co, Favors by Love Travels Favors.

Entertainment by Blue Wave Band and Flip Flop Sounds.


As the sun was setting we took a Brasada Ranch wedding shuttle and went down to see the horses. Just as we were leaving they started running circles around the bride and groom, Ali and Dave. It was magical.

Check back soon to see more images of this amazing wedding at Brasda Ranch.

Wooden USBs for Wedding Photography

Last wedding season I was having a tough time finding reliable wooden USBs to use for my wedding clients. The hardware posts were bending when I put it in or out of the USB drive or they were corrupt. It was very frustrating so I was eager to find a new company this year to use. So glad of my partnership with USB Memory Direct.

Their wooden USBs are available in a array of different shades: Pine, Maple, Mahogany, Walnut, Bamboo, Maple Bamboo and Fiber Wood. I chose the Tower wooden USBS, a classic rectangular design and smooth wood finish add a little style and sophistication. The caps have a magnet to make getting the on and off a cinch.

I also went a step further this year and customized my USBs from USB Memory Direct by having them print my logo on each one. It just a more personal touch when you deliver your clients images on the USB.
