Mt Hood Engagement: Shawn + Wendi

Wendi was plowing through nursing school and found herself face-to-face with Anatomy and Physiology. The dread of many a student, you have to achieve a perfect A to get a coveted spot in the nursing program. The first time round Wendi was dissapointed with her B+ and determined to Ace the class a second time. Looking back, if it hadn’t been for that fateful B+, chances are, she would never have crossed paths with the dashing Shawn seated in the front row.
As it was, their stories were fated to cross. Shawn was training to be a firefighter and conveniently ended up in the same class. (Come on people, what’s not more iconically romantic than a nurse and a firefighter falling in love??) Unfortunately for him, he chose to sit in the front row while Wendi sat in the back. And everyone knows, once you choose your seat- there’s no going back. All the same, Shawn managed to find any number of excuses to make eyes at the gorgeous babe in the back of the room. “I used to pretend I was stretching my neck, or checking the time” Shawn laughed when telling the story. Wendi rolls her eyes and sends a playful jab in response.

For Shawn those rows of seats seemed a impossible barrier between them. There was little hope until the last day of class. Whether it was the convincing of a friend or their impending separation is uncertain. Whatever it was, they FINALLY made plans to connect and their first phone call stretched 2 hours into the evening.

They knew they had found their match.

Wendi and Shawn are not just beautiful to look at, they are truly beautiful people to live life with. Both of their professions indicate the level of personal passion, commitment and sacrifice they live out on a daily basis. They bring out the best in people, something we could all have a little more of 😉

For their engagement session we drove up to Mt Hood (Gorgeous!) and hit the snow. Of course we had to highlight that magnificent truck which makes their photos look like a cross between a Dodge ad and a Ralph Lauren fashion spread. To kill some sun-time we had a drink in Timberline Lodge and finished up around 7pm.

Leave them a comment with some love!

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. 

WE ARE SOULMATES

WHY we're the perfect match

"Christa, you are such a delight to work with. You bring so much energy and direction to a photo shoot. The photographs you take, are truly a reflection of your talent and passion in photography."

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
