I love how Micheal & Danielle included their dog during their engagement session!  I think she should be the flower girl on their wedding day!  Don’t you agree? 🧡🐾

He knows. 
Every fear, every heartache, every tear. 
He holds them, and you, in His hands. 
He’s got this.
Whatever your “this” is, He’s got it. 
Trust Him.

Yesterday I made my parents get all cute and snuggly in front of my camera, and I’ve never felt more awkward slash happy in my life. 😂🤦🏻‍♀️ My parents aren’t exactly the openly lovey-dovey type, but the deep rooted love that they have for each other definitely came shining though yesterday. ❤️✨ They’re celebrating 34 years married next Saturday, and I gotta say, it looks good on them. 🤵🏻👰🏻 Keep an eye out for their blog post full of cuteness to come next weekend! 🌹🌿

Happy birthday, big brother. 
Love you forever and so glad that I got to grow up being your little tag-along sissy.

Fun fact: I’ve been a horse crazy farm girl ever since I can remember. 
I got my first horse when she was 21 and I was 11, and in the few years we had together, we went on countless adventures and she taught me sooo much.
I miss her all the time, and dream constantly of the day when I can own a horse again. 
Anybody else a bit horse crazy? 🙋🏻‍♀️

Happy Halloween, my friends! 
Do you celebrate the day, or not?

I definitely fall in the category of not, but I still appreciate all the adorable kids in costumes that are filling my feed today!

If you’re dressing up this year, I’d love to hear what you’re going to be!

Yesterday, my tiny PNW town had a tornado warning, and today we’re socked in with fog. 😳🤦🏻‍♀️ Go home, Oregon. You’re drunk. 
But really, I do love this time of the year and all the crazy weather (even if tornadoes are definitely out of the ordinary for us). I love the crisp mornings + cozy blankets + beautiful colors + warm drinks + the smell of rain after a long summer + all the anticipation of the upcoming holiday season. 
Tell me, what’s something you love about this season? .

I’m back, y’all!
The past four days were incredible and it was soooo good to just disconnect with social media and reconnect with real life. 
I’m thinking I might need to incorporate social media detoxing on a regular basis...has anybody done this, and do you find it beneficial? 
Lemme know!

This is me -> makeup free + with slightly crazy hair, hanging out in the mountains + loving life.
-
Tomorrow I turn 24, and since I am taking the next few days off from all work (!!!) and social media, I thought I would do my #fridayintroductions today.
-
I am the youngest of four children, and my rockstar mama homeschooled all of us clear through high school. We lived on a little farm and had chickens + ducks + cats + cows + a horse + a Collie named Lady who was born just a few weeks before I was. -
Growing up, I wanted to be a Veterinarian. Then I found out how much schooling it takes to be a Vet and decided hmmm maybe not. But the deep-rooted love I have for animals (along with a healthy dose of reality because hashtag farm life) is still there, and to this day I can’t help but want to make every sick animal better + give every lonely animal a home. (Which is evident if you’ve been following along with little Katniss’s journey.)
-
I have many goals + hopes + dreams for my 25th year, and while I’m not going to share them aaaallll with you right now, one of the big ones is to put away my phone more and really take advantage of this life that I’m building. So with that said, adios my friends, and I’ll see y’all next week!

I loved playing with Barbies when I was a little girl!  Once I was not so little anymore and too embarrassed to let anybody know I still played with them, I figured it was time to pack them up.  But you know what I did first?  I got some scarves for backdrops, dressed up my favorite Barbies in their best outfits, and TOOK PICTURES OF THEM to keep forever!  Well guess what I just realized!  I’M STILL PLAYING BARBIES!  Best Job Ever! ❤️📸

Taking chances is scary, but ya know what’s even more scary?
Never changing. 
And to change, you have to take a chance. 
Risk and reward go together, without taking chances and risking things, you’ll never change things or reap rewards. 
So stop dreaming, and start planning. Make goals and break them down into attainable steps, and then crush those goals. 
Go get ‘em, tiger. #wednesdaymotivation

Soooo, about yesterday...holy. freaking. cow. 
I got to go adventuring with one of my past Bride + Grooms (plus two assistants!) and we pretty much took the whole afternoon to mosey up the trail + explore before they finally changed into their wedding clothes and we started shooting. 
Because we had allowed so much time, I was able to relax and really let my creative juices flow, and ohmygosh I’m so thankful for that. 
I left on a photographer’s high...amazed at the progress I’ve made in the past months since I shot this incredible couple’s wedding, and blown away by the fact that I get to call this (one of) my job(s). thank you, Jesus. thank you for yesterday, thank you for the perfect weather, and thank you for this love of cameras + mountains that you have instilled in me. 
to God be the glory.

Woooooow it’s been a hot minute since I’ve shown my face over here, so I guess it’s about time that I did! 
My name is Rebekah, and I’m a watermelon eating, old hymn loving, farm girl from the good ole Pacific Northwest. 
Some random facts about me:

I’ve had 3 concussions, but never broken a bone. 
My first official job was working at a show horse barn, but before that I did odd jobs/chores for neighbors for years. I worked on a grass seed farm 4 summers in a row during high school, and then worked at Starbucks during college. Currently, I work at a real estate appraisal office by day and hustle hard at building my photography business by night and weekend. (But that might be changing soon. Hint, hint!) I love deep forests, but there is NOTHING better than standing on top of a mountain.

Alright, enough about me, tell me something about YOU! What was your first job? Have you ever had a concussion or broken bone? I want to hear all about it!

I enjoyed this sweet boy so much during his session! It was just the two of us and I asked him if he had anything particular in mind for his session.  His reply, “Whatever you think my Mom wants!” ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Dancing cause we’re halfway through the week, and my nail polish is STILL on my nails!!!! (If you haven’t been following my stories, then this won’t make any sense, but the long and short of it is that normally polish chips off my fingernails within a few hours, but I painted my nails with #essiepolish last Friday and it’s STILL going strong. Literally my face every time I see my perfectly painted nails -> 😱)

Yesterday was rainy + stormy and today is sunny + chilly. 
Seriously loving this fall weather, but also kinda missing all the golden mountain sunsets of the summer.

How freaking perfect is this sign from Jakob + Hailey’s wedding? 
They had soooo many beautiful vintage details, and I seriously could have photographed their wedding day over and over! 
If you’re engaged and looking for a photographer for your 2019 wedding (or even a last minute 2018 wedding!) then shoot me a message and let’s get to talking and see if we’re a good fit for each other! ✨

This weekend my boyfriend and I are celebrating 2 years of dating, and we’re thinking of making a day trip down to Florence, Oregon. 
I’ve never been there, but keep hearing how amazing it is! 
If you’ve been there, do you have any recommendations for places to see or eat? Help a girl out!

This shot will always slay me. 
I mean come on, how freaking stunning is my friend?? The woman has been through a lot more than anyone should ever have to, but somehow she is still sweet and kind and hasn’t become hard to the world. 
Love her, and love seeing her so happy in love. 💙

I am completely consumed
My feeling's so absolute
There's no doubt
Sealing our love with a kiss
Waited my whole life for this
Watching all my dreams come true
Lost in this moment with you .

Dear best friends husband: 
Kinda hating you today for marrying her and taking her so far away from me cause all I wanna do is have a girls night with her but she kinda lives 2,000ish miles away which makes girls nights kinda hard. 
But also kinda love you cause you love her so well. 
See my problem?

It would make it a whole lot easier if you moved back to the PNW. Just sayin’. Sincerely,
Your wife’s friendless friend.

Crappy iPhone shot of a superb quality man + dog (oh yeah and I’m in there too). Today is @natedawginit’s birthday, which means it’s my most favorite day of the entire year!

Getting to celebrate him and all that he is and all that he means to me is the absolute best. 
Nathan, you are so patient with me, so kind, so gentle, so understanding. You aren’t what I always imagined I wanted, but you’re everything I never knew I needed so desperately. The way you care for me + others is so inspiring, and the laughter you bring to my life is unmeasurable.

I love you more than you could ever imagine, and plan to spend the rest of my life showing you that. 
Happy birthday, handsome! ❤️

Today’s the start of my three day weekend to celebrate my most favorite human on earth’s day of birth, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Been thinking on this a whole bunch recently. -

Crappy attitudes don’t help ANYTHING, and they’re really honestly toxic to you and the people around you. -

What if, instead of getting frustrated and wanting to throw my computer at a coworkers head, I took a deep breath, said hey it’s not going to matter in five hours, and just let it go? Wouldn’t that be so much better than hanging onto every little thing that makes me feel slightly annoyed? -

What is something that you’ve been mulling over recently? Let’s start a conversation!

I’m pretty sure that she blinked in this picture, but it’s probably my favorite😂😍 woman crush Wednesday goes out to this stunning bride 😱💖 • • Venue // @dreampalacela Second photographer// @vinlephotography Wedding coordinator// @oh_deers Florist // @johnnykoi Dj // @voxdjs Kelli Boyt Videography// @allbecauseheasked Bridal Hair // @dannynewsham Bridal makeup // the bride herself! @vvddream Catering // @pandainn Bridal gown // @weddingtime_la Bridesmaids dresses // @davidsbridal Groom attire// Hugo Boss Groomsman attire // @kennethcole Invitations // @minted
Once upon a time, back when we were like ten and I was a tomboy who wanted to arm wrestle and she was a refined little lady who did NOT arm wrestle thankyouverymuch, we kinda hated each other. But then we grew up and she married my favorite person and now I don't know what I would do without her. She stepped into the role of Marine Corps wife and then mommy with the kind of grace that only comes from a steadfast faith in Jesus. She is full of wisdom and is always encouraging (but will definitely tell you when you're being stupid). Basically, she's beyond amazing and I'm really really thankful for her. 
Today is the day we celebrate her birth, and I thought it was appropriate to share this photo I took in May right before their daughter joined the family. She is seriously SUCH a wonderful mama, and I am constantly inspired by her! 
Happy Birthday, Em. Love you forever! 💕

Give me all the couples that steal kisses under big ole trees right before they marry the love of their life. 💋

I just booked another 2018 wedding, which means that if you’re getting married before the end of the year, there’s still time to secure me as your photographer! Shoot me a message, and let’s get this party stttaaarrrtteedd!! 🎉

And 2019 brides, dates are starting to look full, so if there’s a venue/florist/photographer that you’ve been dreaming of, reach out to them NOW! 🤵🏼👰🏻

You guys. I don’t have anything to edit right now. Wuuuuut!!!!! It’s been MONTHS since I’ve been completely caught up!! I’m taking full advantage of this time and hitting some background projects HARD. 
What’s something you feel like always seems to fall to the wayside when you get busy?

Oh hey, Oregon, I see you. -

This right here is when I feel the most alive: miles from civilization + sweaty + no makeup + limited/no cell service + standing on top of a ridge looking out on God’s incredible creation, with hardly anyone else around. -

The other day, as I stood on at this incredible spot, all I could think of was “oh my goooosh I just want my DSLR and a cute couple here right now!!” But then I had a little bit of a come to Jesus moment when I actually heard what I was saying. There I was, having a wonderful adventure with the man I love, actually having a Saturday off (for the first time since June), and recharging my batteries in the best way possible, but all I could think of was that I wanted to be working? -

Now, one way to look at this is yay! I love what I do! But another way to look at it is wow, I need to find a balance between work and everything else. I need to learn that it is more than okay to put down my camera and close my laptop and just BE PRESENT. The people + relationships in my life need that, and *I* need that. It’s okay to experience things in life without being tied to a camera, and there will always be other adventures + other mountains + other couples to photograph. -

So, this is me, a photographer, telling you to put down the frickin’ camera and enjoy life sometimes. I promise you won’t regret it. -

Thanks to my awesome boyfriend for taking this iPhone shot.

Is anybody else mesmerized with the way rain beads on flowers? 
No? Just me? Okay. 😂

But really, it rained last night and just reminded me, sometimes rain is good. And I’m not just talking about legitimate rain falling from the sky, I’m talking about the tough times in life. They can be good because without them, the (metaphoric) flowers just wouldn’t be nearly as magnificent or maybe they would be non-existent altogether. 
Let’s stop and smell the flowers and dance in the rain today, friends! 🌸💦

September 7th is my favorite day, because 62 years ago today, my grandparents vowed to love each other for their whole lives.

Getting to grow up so close by to them and have a front row seat to watch their real life love story was incredible and something I’ll forever be thankful for. 
It’s been almost 4 years now since Grandpa went home to be with Jesus (four days after they celebrated their 58th anniversary) and while I still miss him like crazy, I’m so grateful for the years I got to witness their love and for even these years since that I’ve gotten to watch the strength + faith that my Grandma possesses. 
Tonight, my man and I are going to go on a date night down to the “gravel bar” (a spot in Grandpa + Grandma’s woods that my family affectionately named). I’ve packed a picnic dinner, and we’re going to fish and talk and enjoy the evening together celebrating this day and all that it means to my family and us. 💚💛
