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!
Ready for your senior photo session in Beaverton, Hillsboro, or anywhere in the Portland area? Give us a call! We can’t wait to create some stunning senior portrait photographs with you.
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!
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?
Like any wedding, the talents of many wedding vendors go in to making our wedding photography look so good. Our unending thanks to all these amazing people for their work on this incredible shoot!

Shelby 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!
Are you getting married at the Oregon LDS Temple? Or just want some beautiful wedding or engagement portraits in the Columbia River Gorge? Contact us today, and we’ll make your dreams come true.
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!

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.
Are you looking for experienced Ainsworth House wedding photographers? As one of their preferred photographers, we’d love to photograph your wedding at Ainsworth House–storm or no storm! Contact us today to learn more!
We had a great time photographing her Beaverton senior portrait photos at Jenkins Estate. Check out a few of our favorite photos….
If you are a high school senior looking for Beaverton (or Portland, Hillsboro, Tigard, Lake Oswego, or West Linn) senior portrait photography, please call us today! We’re excited about creating something beautiful with you.
I love photographing senior portraits with seniors who have a Plan. And Jillian had a Plan. She wanted to feature her letterman jacket (she just moved to Portland from Vacaville, CA). She wanted portraits with her adorable and energetic dog Kingsley. And she wanted to do some semi-pinup photos with a really cool dress she picked up.
So that’s just what we did. We met early on a Saturday morning at Portland’s iconic Laurelhurst Park, to take advantage of the lovely fall light, and created some stunning senior portraits together.
Do you have a Plan for your senior portrait photography? Even if you don’t, we have lots of great ideas for creating stunning senior portrait photos with you, whether in Portland, Beaverton, Hillsboro, West Linn, or Lake Oswego. Contact us today to schedule your senior portrait photography session!
Senior portraits are so much fun, especially when working with someone as beautiful and fun as Gracey! We photographed her senior photos at Jenkins Estate in Beaverton, and had a great time together. As a dancer, Gracey is comfortable in front of the camera, which makes it even more fun. Isn’t she lovely?
It’s hard to believe I’ve known Alaina since she was … little. She’s babysat for our family, taken some photography lessons from me, even modeled for a recent photography class I taught. And now look at her: a beautiful young woman, heading in to her senior year at Grand High School, thinking about a career in the medical field. Incredible!
We had a beautiful afternoon photographing her senior portraits at the Jenkins Estate in Beaverton, Oregon. Beautiful location, beautiful light, and those beautiful eyes, make for a perfect senior portrait photo session.
Congratulations, Alaina, on heading in to your senior year!
Emily and Josh’s wedding took place at the beautiful Abernethy Center in Oregon City. Their ceremony was particularly touching because the newlyweds decided to incorporate Emily’s daughter into the ceremony by having her join them on stage for a symbolic sand pouring, after which the three of them came together in a warm hug. It was such a tender moment, and I could sense the ever-growing love between the three of them. There were definitely tears in the audience. I always enjoy it when I see couples include their children in their ceremonies because I sense that it really solidifies their family bond. After the ceremony, Emily and Josh and their daughter descended the church steps as a new family beaming with joy as guests blew bubbles and cheered.
Are you getting married at Abernethy Center, in Abigail’s Garden, the Veiled Garden, the Abernethy Chapel, or Abernethy Ballroom?
