While unique wedding experiences are a hot commodity right now, Oregon camping weddings are entirely underrated. Imagine gathering with your closest loved ones to spend a weekend under the stars celebrating LOVE.  I saw a quote once by Gretel Ehrlich that read, “Everything in nature invites us constantly to be what we are”.  True love, like nature, invites us to be who we are. It’s no wonder that in the last decade, casual outdoor weddings have been on the rise.  As an Oregon wedding photographer, I’m a sucker for rich forests with dappled lighting.  Jen + Tony’s camping wedding certainly delivered. 


Oregon is known for its lush forests, moody coastlines, charming vineyards, and rugged high desert peaks. With a wealth of options to choose from, it’s no surprise that Oregon is a popular destination for weddings.  Life in Tents shares a list of Oregon Camping Wedding Venues. Featured on this list, you’ll find Jen + Tony’s wedding venue, Clark Creek.


Though I did not get to capture the entire weekend with J+ T, I was able to capture a small piece of their day. Every detail of this rustic yet elegant wedding was thoughtfully and uniquely designed by a circle of friends. From artisanal food to handmade linens, to the florals and handcrafted ceramics strategically arranged along every table… each element was an act of love.


My intention with this wedding was to create a dreamy folkloric vibe while staying true to J+T’s story.
