Rebecca and Jimi | Milo McIver State Park | Oregon City

Air Force wedding at Milo McIver State Park and at a family home in Oregon City.

These two. I can’t say enough good things about these two. From the very first interaction, I knew I wanted THEM as one of my couples. Yep – vendors just get a sense about their couples as well. The initial connection was to the military – Jimi is in the Air Force and my husband was in the Navy. But beyond that, they are just kind and awesome people.

When reviewing my contract – which contains a clause about proper guest conduct towards the photographer (me) – Jimi reached out to me personally to assure me that NONE of his crowd would act inappropriately toward me, and told me that if anyone DID act out of line that he would knock them right back into it. I mean come on… if he treats his photographer that way, just imagine how he’ll treat his wife?!

Flash forward to the wedding day and the whole family was simply the most gracious and thoughtful bunch. Jimi and Rebecca checked in on me several times throughout the day. Their family brought me water and snacks, and urged me to eat, or try the wine, or eat (another) piece of cake. The groom’s mother even offered for me to spend the night there since I had driven two hours to get to them, and they had a spare room. But I turned that generous offer down to get home to the family, and instead they sent me home with 6 beers, 4 cupcakes for the kids (shhh, don’t tell the kids…), and some turkey wraps. I have read other photographers and vendors saying this kind of thing about their couples, which makes me feel as though – just like how two people find each other to love – people and their vendors can totally be “made for each other”.

I have so excited about these photos and about sharing them that I decided to blog them first, so that they can have a preview of their big day before I finish the full set. Maybe I’ll make that common practice as a way of getting my couples their sneak peeks. What do you think of THAT idea?!

Congrats to you both again, Jimi and Rebecca. I wish you all the best. Military life is hard, but as long as you keep your focus on each other, it’s so do-able, and so worth it.
