The Blog is a place we like to share some of our recent photo sessions, talk about the amazing people we get to work with, and let you in on a little bit of our crazy lives. We are a wife and husband team, who love our job and love working together. That's a photo of us on the right we took during a snow storm in Central Park. Leave it to us to visit New York during one of the worst snow storms in 60 years! Of course it did make for a great photo. We hope you stick around to enjoy some of our work and get to know us. We promise to share some of our crazy adventures. If you feel like it be sure to show us some love by leaving us Blog comments, they always make us feel good.

Sean and Lindsey's Wedding at Reser Stadium, Oregon State University ~ McCloud Photography

Wow, what a great wedding and a wonderful couple. This is a couple who is really perfect together. Of course, how could Sean not adore Lindsey? She is a woman who loves football and will happily go duck hunting with Sean! A perfect match.

As for their wedding, it was a wedding photographers dream. O.K. at least Justin and mine! Their wedding was at Reser Stadium on the Club Level. So many fun places to photograph. Even the dressing rooms were wonderful. As you may be able to tell from the dress photo, they got ready in the suites overlooking the stadium.

The details were amazing and the ceremony was so sweet. Lindsey’s Aunt jumped up and down as she pronounced them Husband and Wife. Everyone was having a great time at the reception. Their dance floor was packed and went all night long. All and all it was a perfect day.

Sean and Lindsey, Justin and I had an amazing time at your wedding. You guys were so wonderful to work with and your families were great to us. I hope the day was even more then you dreamed because it really did turn out perfect. We took a record number of photos from the day. We can’t wait to show you the rest of the photos from your wedding.

Skyler's Senior Photos

Justin and I had the chance to photograph Skyler around the streets of Salem. We had a great time with him finding just the perfect spots to represent Skyler. Salem has some of the greatest alleys with all sorts of unique doors and signs. We got lots of unique images that show how fun Skyler is to hang out with. We see Skyler again in the spring to shoot some more senior photos. The next session will be a Mom’s choice session. She will pick the cloths and location. Doing two sessions is a great idea that allows us to capture a senior the way they are when hanging out with friends as well as the more traditional photos that will be framed and hung in the home for years to come.

I have to say, as I was photographing Skyler I was reminded about how much I love my job! It’s something I think about often but this time I thought I would share. It is so much fun photographing people just the way they are and creating images that truly show who that person is during that point in their life. It may be a child seeing new things for the first time, a new family with the laughter of new little ones, a teenager growing into an adult, a newly married couple glowing
with love, or an older couple celebrating 50 years glowing with pride and admiration for one another and I get to capture it all. Wow, it is truly an honor and I thank everyone who lets me capture these moments in their lives. I truly do have a good reason to love my job.

O.K. back to Skyler. I hope you enjoy the photos. We will be seeing you soon to go over your proofs. And thank you for reminding me of why I love what I do.
