portland destination wedding photographer

 

A year ago, we had the privilege of photographing Arvind and Hana’s proposal and engagement here in Portland.  They were on vacation in Portland when he proposed, and she said yes.  We love proposal photography!

So we were super excited when they asked us to come and photograph their wedding in St. Cloud, Minnesota!  When we first met Hana and Arvind after stalking them through Hoyt Arboretum to catch Arvind popping the question, we all became fast friends.

Arvind is a smart guy with a sweet disposition and his love for Hana is apparent the moment you see him looking at her. Hana on the other hand is a strong boisterous gal with lots of love and attitude to spare, but in front of Arvind she melts away into nothing but smiles and laugher.

These two planned the entire wedding themselves, and what a wedding it was! It was held at the beautiful 912 Plaza in downtown St. Cloud, on the luckiest of late January days. Normally temperatures at this time can be as low as 20 degrees and we lucked out with it being in the high 30’s.  We were so happy as this venue has a beautiful raised outdoor deck, and the downtown area was a great backdrop for some of our images.

Everything for this wedding went beautifully! Arvind and Hana said I do in front of their closest family and friends. From the receiving line to the heartfelt toasts, everyone was feeling the love in the room.  And it didn’t stop there! This group kept going well into the evening, making good use of the photo booth and cutting it up on the dance floor.

Proposal photography Oregon Falls

It is so much fun to sneak around and photograph people proposing!  Every time we photograph a proposal, it’s exciting and moving. 

When Nick called us from Arkansas, to say that he wanted to propose to his girlfriend Rachel in the Portland area, we were excited to help him plan it.  We helped him select a great location (Wahclella Falls, in the Columbia River Gorge), and planned it all out with him.  And it worked!  Rachel said yes!

Photobooth Portland

Rarely have I ever seen so many beautiful people so elegantly attired as I did at Leslie and Callie’s wedding.  A Black Tie New Year’s Eve Gala Wedding at Portland’s Castaway, it was the place to be!  We set up our PhotoBooth, in front of the beautiful flowered backdrop that some of the bride’s friends had made.  And then, magically, a parade of elegant people came through to be photographed!  It was a lot of fun.  

We uploaded the images immediately to their PhotoBooth album on the Fritz Photography Facebook Page, and the guests went wild!  Hundreds of likes and comments, that night, and for weeks to come.  People loved seeing and sharing their photobooth photos, using them as profile pictures, and complimenting their friends and family.  That’s why we love putting our PhotoBooth photos on Facebook for our guests.  It’s just more fun for everyone!

elegant Family portrait photographer Portland

When Jesslyn contacted me, saying she wanted to create a family photo in the style of Vogue and Vanity Fair, I was in.  I really enjoy it when a customer comes to me with a creative idea, and wants something out of the norm.

Her family rented gowns and tuxes, and in the studio our hair and makeup artist got everyone looking their very best.  We shot a variety of images, and everyone loved what we came up with.  Check out this classy family:

Jesslyn is also a model, with Ryan Artists, so we created some photos of her for her modeling portfolio while we were at it:

outdoor engagement portraits portland

Kathryn and Justin’s engagement portrait photography session was such an adventure. We wanted to do their session at Wahclella Falls, in the Columbia River Gorge.  But as we started the hike we quickly realized it wasn’t possible with all of the snow!  So we quickly thought about what we could do.  We decided to drive around on the historic highway and stop at beautiful locations along the way! We ended up finding a lake that was absolutely perfect. The snow with the mountains made for an amazing backdrop, and their love (plus they’re adorable puppy) made for such a fun shoot!

senior photo photographer Hillsboro Oregon

I love it when we get to photograph senior portraits in the winter in Oregon.  It’s a quieter season, the parks are empty, and the bare landscape can lend itself to some lovely images.

So when Simona called to schedule her senior photo session, I was excited.  A senior at Madison High School in Portland, her high school wisely delayed their yearbook photo deadline due to all the recent snow day closures.

We met up at Jenkins Estate in Beaverton, and had the place to ourselves.  It was a beautiful winter afternoon, with that lovely soft light that comes through high, thin clouds.  Add in a beautiful young lady, and we had a great time photographing her portraits together!

Portland Wedding Photographers

Even in the wet and cold of winter…we manage to take beautiful wedding portraits.  We just created these beautiful images at Cathedral Park, in Portland.  In spite of the drizzle and chill, we had a great time!  Brian and his bride gave us big hugs as we parted.  It was a lovely afternoon!

Jenkins Estate Wedding Photography

What does ‘Old World’ conjure up for you, when you think of a wedding?

Lace?  Handcrafted items?  Spidery handwriting on an invitation?  Coattails?  Elegant, classic floral arrangements?

As we talked with our friends at Your Perfect Bridesmaid, we came up with all of these things, and more.  So we worked with them to pull together the elegance of the Old World, right here in Portland, Oregon.  Or to be more exact, Beaverton, Oregon, at the historic Jenkins Estate.  With the help of many other amazing Portland wedding vendors, we captured the warmth and grace of a classic wedding, right here in our own back yard.  We’re especially grateful to Claire La Faye for her amazing dress, and Coreen Collins for her excellent wedding hair and makeup work.

What words would you use to describe these wedding photographs?

LaTourell Falls wedding photosShelby approached us and asked if we could not only photograph her and Jordan when they came out of the Portland Oregon LDS Temple, but also spend time with them taking portraits in the Gorge the day before.  Of course, we said yes!  We always enjoy wedding photography at the LDS Temple, but the opportunity to also photograph in the Gorge was extra special.

So that’s what we did!  A late afternoon wedding portrait photography session at Latourelle Falls one day, and the grand exit from their Oregon Temple wedding the next day.  The perfect pairing of wedding photography for this beautiful couple!

senior portrait photographers Portland

It’s always fun to photograph dancers.  Not just when they’re dancing, but…pretty much any time.  We also love photographing senior portraits.  So when we get to shoot a senior portrait session with a dancer, it’s even more fun!

Emma is a senior at Portland’s Cleveland High School.  She’s a trained dancer who loves ballet.  However, after a life-changing experience of serving in the Dominican Republic, she wants to go in to International Relations.  So we had a lot to talk about while we wandered through Northwest Portland, near the studio, photographing her senior portraits.  After working with our hair and makeup stylist in the studio (the fantastic AJ’s Hair Design and Makeup), we had a great time making photographs that are both beautiful and unique.  Check out some of what we created below!

Ainsworth House Wedding Photographer

Remember that terrible storm we were supposed to have this past weekend in Portland?  The one to rival the infamous Columbus Day Storm of 1962?  Well, we barely do either.  (Unless you were at the Oregon Coast and experienced the tornadoes there….)

Well, that’s the storm that was predicted for Whitney and Paul’s wedding day, at the Ainsworth House in Oregon City.  Krystle, the wedding coordinator, wisely moved the whole event indoors.  Yet when we arrived and started photographing the wedding, we noticed that it was still dry outside, and the winds weren’t terrible.  Staying away from large trees and flying pine cones, we decided to take some outdoor portraits of the bride and groom anyhow.  And I’m glad we did!

The rest of the wedding day was indoors, which isn’t such a bad thing.  While Ainsworth House has some fantastically beautiful gardens, the interior spaces are also quite nice (and historically charming).

Paul and Whitney’s friends know how to have a good time.  From the photobooth to the dance floor, these guys turned this wedding into a real celebration.  And it wasn’t hard, with DJ Denmark of Bridge City Music at the helm.
