I was fortunate enough to spend the afternoon and evening photographing Melissa and Rob’s wedding on 10-11-12. There is nothing I can say about how great they are together that would say as much as the tears of joy in their kids eyes throughout the day. Congrats you to you guys!
The nurse. The fireman. Probably sounds a bit cliche, but before they were the nurse and the fireman my cousin Rachel was a nursing student, and Chris was going to paramedic school. Wrapped in the romantic ambiance of an Anatomy and Physiology class she caught his eye, and as the physical therapist father-of-the bride said “Rachel found a guy with his head on straight”.
Although I was not the photographer for this wedding (I completely “uncle Bob’ed” this one), I had my camera at the ready with the permission of my cousin to snap a few shots since they only had 2 photographers for part of the day. Pinterest did its job on this day, and my cousin worked hard with the help of family and friends to detail out her wedding beautifully.
The apple licorice things were amazing.

I may have been just a little bias, and overwhelmingly honored that my little girl was the flower girl. Instead of the traditional throwing of flowers, the bride chose a bucket full of goldfish crackers, which she could conveniently snack on during the ceremony. Great idea!

I was so thrilled to get to spend time with family I haven’t seen in so many years. For many more photos from this muggy Southern Oregon wedding visit my Facebook page!
Springtime in Oregon is full of love, flowering trees, and sun… well, maybe not so much sun. To schedule anything outdoors beyond the 10 day forecast takes a crystal ball and the psychic hotline. But after several rescheduling attempts we made it out to shoot some pre-wedding/engagement photos for Brandi and Mike. I wanted to share some of my favorites and wish these two luck on their upcoming wedding in June!
They’ve known each other since before high school, and with an upcoming casual backyard wedding I thought a nice evening shoot out in the hills East of Newport would be perfect for these two.
I was excited to get out there and see cherry blossoms, a light breeze, and the typical cool spring evening.
There is nothing easier than photographing a couple that really love each other. Something that was apparent through any awkwardness they felt in front of the camera, or uncertainty about this person (me) they had just met.
As the evening wore on we decided to head on down to an old cattle pasture. No pies left, but plenty of room to roam.
Newport is a small town, and after I posted these photos on my Facebook photography page (www.Facebook.com/KrisMillerPhotography), I had several different people approach me to let me know how happy they are these two are together. Best of luck to you both!
