Intimate Wedding Photography - Mieke + Tymon in Bend

Maybe the best part of being a wedding photographer is when I get to be there for weddings of friends who are otherwise not really inviting friends. Mieke and Tymon eloped in Bend a few weekends ago with just family and their officiant present, and I was so happy to be a part of it! I’ve known Mieke since her twins were just babies and we were working at a restaurant - along with her now-new-husband Tymon and his brother Aaron. (There’s actually an astonishingly long list of happy couples who got their start at that restaurant, and I’ve now photographed at least five of the weddings myself.) It was a lovely day in Bend where we got to experience sun, rain, snow, and a beautiful sunset all within the span of a few hours. And the high desert landscape around their AirBnB was the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony and a few portraits with the happy couple.

Thanks for having me, you two - I’m excited to see what this next chapter of your life holds!
