Wes & Shaylee Sandy River Session | Hearts on Fire by Kari Rae, Oregon Love Photographer

Kari Lewis

She was the maid of honor, and he was the life of the dance party.

After I was admiring their flirty love all day, it finally came time to toss the bouquet & garter. You'll never guess who caught them. ;) Dreams come true, my friends!

A couple months later, I decided to give away a session to an amazing couple. People wrote in to nominate their friends & family...but this one stood out to me. 

Wes & Shaylee agreed to have this experience with me, and I am so crazy thankful they did.

Their love is raw, joyful, deep, passionate, and nearly tangible. It was (and still is) an absolute honor to have photographed them at this time in their lives... just before getting engaged. 

In honor of their wedding last weekend, I am excited to finally share these images! Congratulations, Mr. & Mrs. Hughes! You two are amazing. 

NOW the moment I've been waiting for... the video! Notice the chorus lyrics ;) This was part of my inspiration! (down where it says 360p, switch it to 720 for better quality. And make it full screen too, while you're at it)

Incredible. They blow me away.

I tend to get on what I call a "love high" after sessions... this one lasted for weeks. Don't you just feel blessed to see their relationship?
