Mandalynn | Bridal Session! | Sneak Peek

I recently received a sweet email from a bride who will be married in just a few short weeks in Texas. She already had her wedding photographer chosen, but she was looking for someone who would be able to photograph another very important part of her life.

You see, her grandfather’s health isn’t the best now and he won’t be able to attend her wedding. Mandalynn hoped to have some photographs with him and the rest of her family, as well as some bridal portraits, at one of her favorite places on earth: her grandfather’s property in Washington state.

After I visited the home to scout locations, I could see why. It’s hard to describe how beautiful the property is, and much of its beauty is due to the care her grandfather and father took to create what it is today. The long driveway is lined with Vine Maple trees, huge Fir trees divide the property, a three-story barn sits along the northwestern edge of the expanse of land. I can imagine Mandalynn as a little girl spending hours riding and tending to her horses in the pasture and having tea with her grandmother, Bobby, as they watch the clouds clear to reveal the beauty of Mount Hood in the distance. It’s truly a magical place and I feel so, so blessed to have been able to document the place and its people, all with their favorite daughter, Mandalynn, before she heads home to Texas to marry her sweetheart.

Here is just a peek at the breathtaking images we made…

On Monday I will share more of the images from my time with Mandalynn and her family.
