Casey and Josh | Bend Wedding Photography

There is something so refreshing being around people who can only be described as pure of heart. Casey and Josh are like this. Both of them are kind, understanding, forgiving, loving people. They are polite and friendly and happy. They both have a lot of personality, but they are completely unselfish and treat each other with the utmost respect. Being around these two actually made me envious of their kindness but at the same time want to strive to be a better person myself.

Casey and Josh, who both go to OSU with me, celebrated their wedding in their hometown of Bend, Oregon at one of their church’s properties, Rockin’ B Ranch. I love central Oregon so I was super excited for the opportunity to take some portraits in a slightly different landscape. Luckily for me, these two were super cooperative and creative and let me take a MILLION portraits of them throughout the day 🙂

Casey started off getting ready with her friends and family.


Josh wrote her a poem, it was SO CUTE. She was totally cracking up.

They had their first look right away..

And we started wandering around the ranch to take more pictures of the two of them.

Loved this old fashioned truck!

When I had arrived it was raining, but it stopped pretty quickly and the sun came out while the sky was still full of clouds and I was left with some of the most phenomenal natural lighting I could have ever asked for.

These two can definitely be a little goofy at times, haha.

The lighting was still perfect in time for their incredible outdoor ceremony.

They did a little science experiment instead of using sand!

And a beautiful backlit foot-washing ceremony.

Bubbles are the best! And can you see that sky? It was made for them!

After a receiving line, I took even MORE pictures of the two of them! And took advantage of the sunset of course.

Found an old buggy!

And some hay!

And a swing underneath a Juniper tree! But I decided I just liked the tree itself minus the swing, haha.

Love how peaceful and happy they looked.

And then it was on to the reception!

Toasts…

Cutting the cake…

First dance…

Garter toss…

Bouquet Toss…

And dancing!

And ended the night with a sparkling send off! Congrats Casey and Josh! It was a pleasure working with you both!
