It’s been killing me not being able to share photos from our awesome wedding in Toronto’s Steam Whistle Brewery! Were finally able to share that Jen and Jesse’s wedding has been published on Style Me Pretty Canada. Thank you so much Jen for letting us be a part of it all, and special thanks to the amazing husband/wife coordinating team, Lustre Events. I’m so happy we met but so heartbroken we live in different countries! If anyone’s getting married in Toronto, do yourself a favor and contact Melissa and Morgan. Can’t say enough wonderful things about those two! :)

So click here to go to the post! :)

On September 3rd, 2012 (Labor Day, appropriately), Quinn was born.

We had to wait four long months to meet our first nephew. My sister-in-law Kristin is amazing, though, and nearly every day included a photo of Quinn, video clip, or Skype chat. Even though Oregon felt so far away, we were in constant contact as I counted down to our January trip. Soon enough, Nate and I were en route to Portland on the longest flight ever, and after a four hour car ride to their home, I was so excited I nearly kicked down their door to get to Quinn as fast as I could! You may remember from my “Quinn 2.0″ post earlier this year, but the second I was finally snuggling my four month old nephew, Kristin casually blurted out, “So, we’re pregnant again.” :)

So I’m excited to finally share some photos of our whirlwind visit to Oregon this past January where we met baby Quinn for the very first time. Seeing as we just got back from visiting them (and meeting our first niece, Kinley!), I thought now’s a good time to gaze at these photos as I begin my countdown for our next visit which, as always, can’t come soon enough. :)

This photo started my favorite series of photos ever- Quinn and Nate’s “bff photos” as I like to call them. Quinn was going to town eating his fist so Nate automatically started doing the same thing. We have such a fun set already- Eating their fists, crying, napping during lunch, and chewing a cardboard box. I really hope we continue the tradition throughout Quinn’s life, so we can someday have a coffee table book made. :)

Love my Aunt Jensey wine glass. :)

I kid you not- Of any place in the world I could travel to, I only want to be in this living room with this family.

I’d like to say we were showing a clip of a really cute children’s show. Or a documentary. But no… We were introducing them to my favorite guilty pleasure clip on You Tube: Beauty and the Beat.

Quinn totally loved it. :)

Have I mentioned yet how much I love being an aunt? ;)

We drove to Mt. Bachelor for lunch, when we were met with this sign. (Oregon has very strict laws keeping minors out of places that serve liquor.)

… But my brother got creative and we found a way around it. :)

I never ever wanted to leave Quinn’s side. :)

Incase we’ve never met, I’m Jensey. And the only thing I love as much as Nate, Huck, and Christmas is snow.

The photo above is me shooting this! As soon as Kristin told me she was pregnant, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for their “announcement” photo. :)

Continued from Krystal and Ben’s Disney Cruise Line Castaway Cay Wedding Part I. :)

I just realized that just like our last cruise bride, Kimberly, Krystal is also a fellow wedding photographer. I love that almost every wedding vendor we’ve photographed has either eloped or had a destination wedding like this! :)

Captain Jack seemed a bit concerned when he saw we were shooting with Cannons. :)

After a little bit of bride and groom portrait time on Castaway Cay, it was off to their private reception for cake, toasts, and dances!

Champagne Toast

I love so much that Ben asked his little sister to be his “Best Woman,” and her speech had everyone (including us) wiping tears.

We were originally going to spend an hour or so after their reception for photos around the boat, but no words could describe how incredibly hot it was! Krystal and Ben made the smart decision to postpone photos until after dinner so they could enjoy the island a bit.
