Maria & Jesus
Mary's Peak in Philomath, Oregon
Photography: Salem, Oregon wedding photographer Serendipity Photography, LLC
Maria and Jesus were such a joy to work with and I cannot wait for their wedding in May. They'll be getting married in a traditional Catholic ceremony and then having a reception at Postelwaits. I met this couple back in July when Maria contacted me through Yelp asking me for wedding photography services. I met them both at a local coffee shop- Governor's Cup (which I absolutely love) off Court St in Salem.
I was able to show them gorgeous albums from previous weddings, talk about their upcoming wedding and what they envisioned, and the love they have for one another. I was truly taken with these two!
We started their session off with some of the gorgeous trees and greenery in the background. We all love how beautiful our gorgeous state of Oregon is and the trees that cover this area are so majestic. That coupled with Jesus and Maria's love for one another and their natural abilities in front of my camera made for such beautiful portraits.
After a few with the trees we decided to turn our attention to the mountains behind us and the dried grasses. I wanted to capture them in the environment naturally and showcase the deep connection that they have with one another. They may be small in this big world but their love for one another certainly is big.
If you've never been to Mary's Peak, I suggest you go visit. It's definitely surreal. To be up on the very top of this mountain overlooking the valley and realizing how amazing the sights around you are is humbling. The fact that it isn't too far from Salem is nice as well- only about 1 hr 15 min. It would be a perfect place to take your significant other for a picnic or day date!
I hope you enjoyed viewing Jesus & Maria's engagement portraits. These were just a few of my favorites from their gallery and I'm sure that there will be so many more from their wedding coming up.
