I love when couples get married at a place that is special to them. Kristina and Josh got married at their church in University Place, WA in front of their children, family, and close friends. Leaving the Vancouver, WA area at about 6:30 am, I only made one coffee stop on my way up to be at their location at 8:30. As usual, I … Read More University Place, WA Wedding with Kristina and Josh | Missy Fant Photography

Dani and Dan had a sweet country wedding on their property out in North Plains, OR. It was mid-July, so of course, the sun was bright, but the skies were gorgeous. When we arrived, I headed down the road to a family members house to meet her and her bridesmaids while Bill met up with the boys at their home. Their little boy … Read More A Country Wedding in North Plains, OR | Dan and Dani
I may be a little biased as Makaila is family, but I LOVED her and Miles’ wedding at Deep Woods Events in Elmira, OR. Being a geek fits into our family. Technically she’s my husband’s cousin, but I have known her since she was in the single digits. A while back, she brought Miles to one of our family holidays, and we instantly felt … Read More A Very Nerdy Wedding at Deep Woods Events | Makaila and Miles
Gherid and Rikki met through their work and then fell in love while playing board games. A match made in nerd paradise.
Portland in January is exactly what you think it is, dark and rainy. But that doesn’t deter me from capturing amazing people getting married, especially when Bridgeport brewery is involved! Ashley and Kevin were getting ready at the Heathman Hotel and then having their ceremony and reception at Bridgeport Brewing, which I got super excited for as its a mix of two things I … Read More A Portland Bridgeport Brewing Wedding with Ashley and Kevin
“For Every Blue Moon and Berry Burst Moment, there’s been you.” That was on a placard at the head table, and Sarra had made sure to pull me aside and let me know what it means. They just happened to be drinking BJ’s Berry Burst during some high points in their relationship. For bad days, they always seemed to be reaching for a Blue … Read More Summit Grove Lodge – Sarra and Chris
Last week, I did an update to a previous post that I made four years ago right after my first year as a wedding photographer. As I was writing that article, a new list of things popped up in my head about what other advice I could pass along to someone else falling in love with wedding photography like I did.
It’s been four years now since I wrote my original post “10 Things I Learned In My First Season as a Wedding Photographer”, so I thought now would be a perfect time for an update.
There are some major additions to this list, but I thought that I would start out with an update on the first 10 topics that I started within my first year. I’ll be adding to the list next week, so stay tuned!
I spoiled myself earlier this year and bought a drone. After researching for weeks, studying the FAA rules, and read review after review, the DJI Phantom 3 was purchased.
I am hoping with some practice and studying, that I will pick up my commercial drone license and be able to incorporate aerial shots in with my portrait and wedding packages.
Until then, i’ll be taking it around on hikes and shooting my beloved landscape with it.
So, I’ve been a little quiet on my blog lately, but there is a good reason and I can know officially announce it. I have launched a boudoir side business! I still love capturing weddings and families, I just decided that boudoir would work better if I seperated it from my main brand. Self esteem issues are huge with us females. However, I ‘ve … Read More I’ve been a little quiet lately
