Welcome to Our Blog.

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. Thank you for visiting! ~Brandy & Justin

Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my (Justin) Mom’s birthday and I wanted to let her know that I was thinking of her.

As I have grown, I have realized all the many things that you have done. Tucking me in, tieing my shoes, wiping my nose, cleaning up boo boos...all in a days work for a great Mom. Thank you for not only cheering me on from the football stadium stands, but for continuing to cheer me on in life now!
Thank you Mom for all the things you’ve done that seemed so small that really meant the world.

Have a wonderful day & we wish you many birthday wishes.

Love ~ Justin & Brandy

A poem that we thought was fitting:

This wish for you Mom
is straight from the heart.
With more special meaning
than words can impart...
May your day hold pleasures
that your fondest of...
And remember each day
you're thought of with Love.

Holstein House ~ Tom & Sara's Upcoming Wedding ~ McCloud Photography

Yesterday we did a site visit with Sara for her upcoming wedding at the Holstein House. We are really looking forward to her and Tom's wedding later this summer.

Bonny, who owns the Holstein House, gave us a tour around the beautiful grounds. This is a great location for a wedding. They have truly put a lot of thought into the small details throughout the site. Now, the only hard part will be finding the time to photograph in all the wonderful locations throughout.

If you are interested in checking them out for your wedding, visit their website at www.holsteinhouse.com

Reser Stadium at Oregon State University ~ Upcoming Wedding ~ McCloud Photography

These photos are from during our site visit with Ryan & Susan who's reception will be at Reser Stadium. We are super excited to be shooting another wedding at the stadium on Oregon State University campus. This time, the event will be in the Founders Loge. It's a great room with lots of ambiance. As far as we know, this will be the first wedding in this room. The other wedding we photographed at OSU was Sean & Lindsey in the Club Level. They were also the first couple to have there wedding in that room. The stadium is a great place for some fun photos and we are honored to get this opportunity again.

Eugene Oregon Family Photographer ~ David, Julie, their little one & of course, Jasmine~ McCloud Photography

Several posts back, I asked if you could guess which past couple the photo was? Well, it was David and Julie who's wedding I photographed in 2006. One of my favorite images of their wedding is the one in my blog header featuring Jasmine. Jasmine now has a new friend in the family, David and Julie's little girl.
Just as I knew she would be, she is an absolute doll. We captured some posed images of the family and of course some of spontanious moments. With a little one on the go, you have to go with the flow sometimes. She shared flowers with the camera, well I think they were meant for me, explored the items around her, and did the cutiest little dance number!

It is such an honor when we get to photograph families from years past. We also love to see the families grow and change. Thank you so much David and Julie for letting us capture these images.
