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.

Portland Senior Portraits Laurelhurst Park

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.

Beaverton Senior Portrait Photography Studio

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!

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.

Resort at the Mountain Wedding Photographer

Laurence and Ranjit had an intimate wedding party at the Resort at the Mountain.  And man, was it a party!  A full Labor Day Weekend affair, guests flew in from across the country for this special occasion.

One of my favorite parts of their wedding was the way they incorporated their two sons into the ceremony.  Not only did the boys walk the bride down the aisle, but they were also both given a special gift during the ceremony.  What a beautiful way to blend a family.

Stunning flower arrangements were provided by Lora Losinger of Sophisticated Floral Designs.  We’ve worked with Lora many times on many different occasions, from wedding photography to fashion photo shoots to wedding shows.  She never disappoints.  This wedding at the Resort at the Mountain was no exception!  The Indian-touch to the aisle flowers was just stunning.

What a great day with wonderful people!

Alec and Joe’s wedding was held at some classic Portland locations, including the incredible Laurelhurst Park, and the charming Laurelhurst Club.  There was so much laughter at their wedding!  Kai loved it.  What a delight to be part of telling their wedding story.

Best Vintage Wedding Photographers Portland

I was also excited about shooting this event because it was a completely vintage wedding at the Aero Space Museum of Calgary. I wasn’t disappointed… the vintage-styling looked amazing against a backdrop of old antique airplanes!

The morning of the wedding day I hung out with the bride and groom while they were getting ready.  Courtney was completely decked out in vintage wear… from her dress to her headpiece to her pearls to her fur stole.  I loved that her dress highlighted the amazing tattoo artistry across her back!  The ceremony was in the airplane hanger surrounded by old airplanes, while the reception was next door in the museum.  Courtney ran with the vintage travel theme, and decorated the tables with old globes, miniature planes, maps, and suitcases.  Even the flowers were adorned with old keys that she had been collecting from antique stores.  She also did a fabulous job of honoring family members that were no longer with them, and family that had served in the military.  They recognized that their lives and relationship were a culmination of all the family members that went before them.

Vintage wedding photos portland-7

We had so much fun during this styled session in partnership with a variety of fabulous vendors.  The bride is wearing a beautiful vintage dress from Adorned in Grace.  Adorned in Grace is a bridal and formalwear shop in the Portland area that sells new and gently used wedding gowns and accessories.  The shop is run by volunteers and all proceeds are used to promote awareness and prevention of sex trafficking as well as restoration for trafficking victims. It is a FABULOUS mission and we couldn’t be happier supporting this organization!

The amazing ladies with The Modern Proper provide food, treats, and cake for us to photograph. Also, special thanks to Kailla Platt Flowers for providing flowers for the cake, bouteneers, and a beautiful bouquet!

We also need to give a “shout out” to Beth Moyer with Bad Ass Make-up who did a fabulous job with the make-up artistry.  And also a big thanks to Pure Elegance by Sarahi Welton who worked some magic on our models’ hair!

McMenamins Edgefield Wedding Photography

Jesse and Regina met us at a bridal show last fall, and right away we kind of hit it off.  They are both smart and funny, a combination that I click with pretty quickly.  So I was stoked when they booked us to be their wedding photographers.

We got things started off on the right foot with our engagement portrait session at the Jenkins Estate.  (See their engagement portraits here!)  We had a great time photographing, and they loved the photos so much they have several framed on their walls, and one of our handcrafted portrait albums on their coffee table.

The wedding day itself was even better.  It started off with Regina prepping at McMenamins Edgefield, and Jesse getting styled at Dillinger’s Barber Shop on Alberta Street.  A great way to start the day.

Their wedding was held at St Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Northeast Portland.  A beautiful space, filled with beautiful music by Regina’s sister and brother in law.

And then we all headed back to McMenamins Edgefield’s Blackberry Hall for the reception!  We started it off with some portraits on the beautiful grounds, and then headed inside for dinner and dancing.
