Sunset Couple Session in Sparks Lake, Bend Oregon
I had the chance to photograph Kelly and Tony for an epic Couple Session in Sparks Lake, Bend Oregon early this summer. After chatting with Kelly about the location and time of their Sparks Lake couple session I realized Tony is also an amazing wedding photographer. I’m always so excited when I get a chance to meet other creatives but photographing them is even better! These two babes moved out to Bend, Oregon a few years ago from New Mexico with their little family. They have the cutest little girl that I had a chance to meet when we were photographing them. Kelly is also a business owner and owns an amazing Brow Bar and Skincare studio in Bend. A few days after our session I had to go check it out. And let me tell you I never had my eyebrows look this good haha!!! If anyone is looking for a skincare studio in Bend I highly recommend checking Kelly’s website out. Click here!
