Sunny Wedding Photography PortlandI love the elegance and joy that surrounded Nathan and Katie on their wedding day. Katie looks like she just stepped out of a classic black and white movie. She also has one of the most beautiful singing voices I’ve ever heard. Nathan appropriately is a composer, so together they really do make beautiful music!

FritzPhoto-Peterson-053

We were saddened to learn this past week of the passing of Matthew Peterson, whose wedding we were honored to photograph in 2013.  (You can see their wedding story here.)  Matthew was one of the sweetest men you’d ever meet, and it was a delight to work with him and his beautiful bride, Dominique, at their wedding.  They were married at Camp Angelos, which was founded by his grandfather.  He and Dominique met there as camp counselors, so it was fitting that they were also married there.

Matthew battled brain cancer for 15 years, which made his wedding even more special.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to Dominique and the rest of his family.  Thank you for the privilege of being part of Matthew’s story.

Senior Photos Portland

From looking at these photos, would you be able to tell that it was 39 degrees outside?

I didn’t think so.  But it was, and Allyson took it all in stride.  We photographed her senior photos at Peninsula Park, just as the sun was setting on a chilly December day, but she made it seem positively warm and comfortable.

Not only is she beautiful, but she’s also smart.  From fifth year Spanish, to the Constitution Team, this Grant High School senior is going places!

Here are some of the kind words some of our commercial and editorial photography clients have to say about working with us:

Wedding Photographer and Portrait Photographer

I have worked with many photographers on countless photoshoots for print and digital marketing initiatives.  Fritz Liedtke is hands down the best photographer I have had the pleasure of working with.  If you see his work, it is clear he is extremely talented; but what sets him apart from the rest is how he functions before, during, and after the shoots.

Fritz’s attention to detail makes all the difference between a shoot that provides a handful of good shots and a shoot that delivers a solid bank of excellent photos for digital and print needs.

During the shoot, Fritz has a great zen like aura that puts the subjects at ease.  Most people are not comfortable in front of the camera.  Fritz is the best at putting my clients at ease and you can see the difference in the finished product.  His team is just as great as he is.  His assistants and make-up artists know when to jump in and jump back and are great to work with.

Fritz is always quick to deliver our assets and the finished product has always exceeded my expectations.  He takes the time to ask for feedback and is great about suggestions on how to improve future shoots whether it is location or model choices, he thinks ahead to ensure each photo shoot is better than the one before.

When selecting team member for projects, I always choose Fritz as my photographer because I know he will always exceed my expectations.

~Claudine Slater, OHSU

 

Fritz’s work speaks for itself – he captures soulful, fine-art portraits in a way few others do.  We’ve always been drawn to Fritz’s work because it’s beautiful; but he also embodies the same spirit our company does – seeing in a new way, not being afraid to try new things.

Fritz is tireless, always willing to try another angle, always contributing his own ideas.

In short, Fritz is a visionary photographer, incredibly hard-working, producing work that truly stands out and tells a powerful story.

~Keri Friedman, Lensbaby

 

We recently worked with Fritz for ten full days over a one month period, at locations across the country.  Staff everywhere found him great to work with, and I agree.  Here are some of the things they said about working with Fritz:

  • Fritz is an open-minded and talented artist who makes his subjects comfortable in front of the camera and captures their essence in his beautiful photography.
  • Planning and communication was easy. He communicated with us several times prior to the shoot to ensure our needs and expectations were met.
  • He was knowledgable about the industry, and talented.
  • His flexibility and willingness to travel with short notice was great.
  • Fritz was efficient, professional, and friendly throughout the preparation and day-of shooting.
  • Fritz worked quickly and efficiently with editing and delivery of photos after the shoot. Additionally, he was consistently available for any questions or needs after the completed project.

FritzPhoto-Vancouver Wedding Photographer

Okay, so I have a confession to make.  I grew up in Vancouver, Washington.  This was long before the phrase ‘Vantucky’ had come into the world.  Long before Portland was Portlandia.

My favorite place in Vancouver?  The Fort.  Even though I’d only visited it a few times, Fort Vancouver was my kind of place: old buildings, live blacksmiths with hot coals, hand-made nails, that spiky log wall all the way around.  There’s nothing else like it.  It’s a real fort!

Well, when I heard that Kate and Henry were getting married at the Marshall House on Officer’s Row in Vancouver, I knew I had to take them to the Fort for some portraits.  They agreed, confessing that they’d never been there.  Never been to Fort Vancouver? I thought to myself.  Really?  I took the opportunity to briefly educate them on the fact that 200 years ago, the Fort was the center of the known universe for settlers and trappers in the Pacific Northwest.  It ruled the roost, with John McLoughlin at its helm….

But back to Kate and Henry.  These guys are cute and funny.  And so are their friends.  And crafty.  In fact, the bridesmaids were finishing up all the flowers while Kate was getting dressed!

While Kate looks lovely in this pink dress, this, I was told, was only the beginning.  And so it was.  This was the first of 3 dresses she brought with her to her wedding….

Here she is in Dress #2, her actual wedding dress.

As we were walking outside to take portraits of Kate and Henry, all of these beautiful people in period dress started walking toward us.  Of course, I had to ask if we could take a picture with them, and they agreed.  Turns out, this was a processional of dozens and dozens of folks from the Fort, all in handmade period dress.  It was awesome.

And then there’s the reception.  Not your average wedding reception, but a full British tea, scones and cucumber sandwiches and everything.  The couple brought every single piece of China in for this event.  It was lovely.

Each bridesmaid had their own special petticoat on under their vintage-fabric dresses.  We had to show them off.

I have rarely seen brides with flowers in their hair.  My own bride had them 15 years ago, and I’ve only seen a couple brides since then.  I often wonder why.  They are so superbly elegant, and far more fetching than a clump of flowers in the hand.  I highly recommend it!

And then there’s Dress #3.  A lovely pink dress that looked stunning on Kate.  As we photographed, I asked her how many dresses she had.  She demurred a moment, and then confessed, “Around 300.”  My jaw dropped.  A beautiful girl with excellent taste, and 300 dresses…I could photograph her for a very long time to come.

To round out this lovely day, Kate and Henry invited everyone over to Enso Winery, in Portland, where Henry works.  There was wine and cheese and toasts and music–a wonderful end to a wonderful day.

Kate and Henry, congratulations to you, and thank you for letting us be part of your amazing day!  Have fun in Europe on your honeymoon!

Your friends at FritzPhoto.

FritzPhoto-Portland-Wedding-Portrait-Photographer007-Katie and Chris wanted a wedding that focused on the love they shared between them but also the love of the family and friends that surround them. Their wedding was made up of hand crafted elements and meaningful music (both Katie and Chris are musicians).  And lots of laughter!  And a few tears.  It was the loveliest of days!  Thank you Katie and Chris for allowing us to be a part of it!

I don’t’ think I’ve ever laughed as much at a wedding as this one. Jaime is an artist and Travis works for a non-profit in New York City. Alone, Jaime and Travis are connective and quiet, but you get these two around their friends and family and laughter and dancing are both guaranteed.

Portland LDS Temple Wedding Photography

It’s a rare occasion when a bride and groom schedule a separate photo shoot of their bridal portraits for the day before their wedding.  But when they do…we can create something extra stunning!  We can choose the best light, and the best locations, and take our time creating something amazing.  And that’s just what we did with Kelsey and Tanner, at the Portland, Oregon LDS Temple.  Kelsey’s family and friends drove all the way from Eltopia, Washington, to get married at the beautiful Portland LDS Temple, and Tanner’s family came in from Ohio. Portland Oregon LDS Temple Wedding Photography Portland Oregon LDS Temple Wedding Photography Amazing Portland Oregon LDS Temple Wedding Photography

The LDS Temple in Portland, Oregon, really is an amazing building.  If you time it right, the light can be amazing.  Add in a super-cute couple, and you get the above photograph.

Portland Oregon LDS Temple Wedding Photography Portland Oregon LDS Temple Wedding Photography

It also helps to photograph at the Portland LDS Temple when no one else is around!  Scheduling a separate portrait session allowed us to get the above image as the sun set in the background. And last but not least, what’s a wedding without cute kids?  The day after our portrait session, Kelsey and Tanner were married at the LDS Temple.  Afterward, they had a reception for friends and family at The Foundry at Oswego Pointe, in Lake Oswego.

Congratulations, Kelsey and Tanner!  Here’s to a lifetime of happiness together.

I’ve known Natalie for a long time.  We first met when I was working on a personal photographic project at her middle school.  She and a friend posed for an image that I’ve always liked, in the series Quite Normal.  (See if you can recognize her there.)  A year or two later, her subtle freckles caught my attention, as I was photographing the series Astra Velum.  And another year or two later, her mom called me up to say that Natalie had made it in to the Jefferson Dancers, an elite dance troupe here in Portland, Oregon.  I spent a year documenting these amazing dancers and all their hard work.  (Below is a photo of Natalie I took when working on their publicity images this past year.)

Portland Dance Photography

Now Natalie’s a high school senior, and she asked me to take her senior portraits.  I was happy to do so!  I love working with other artists, and photographing dancers is one of my favorite things.  So it was a lot of fun to create Natalie’s senior portraits–both on the ground, and in the air! Portland Senior Photos Portland Dance PhotoCongratulations, Natalie!  I’m looking forward to seeing where life takes you from here!

Ainsworth House Wedding Photography

I’m not sure how many countries Scott and Joy have traveled to, or how many versions of scorpion or snake they’ve eaten, or how far they’ve biked in the far corners of the world…but it’s a lot.  These guys like adventure, and their wedding day was no exception.  From The Modern Man on Mississippi, to Ainsworth House and Gardens in Oregon City, this wedding was itself a destination for a fun-loving crew of friends and family.

Desirea Still -3

Amanda is one of the most talented stylists and designers I’ve ever come across, so of course her and Phil’s wedding was going to be anything but traditional. Married in the middle of a park wearing vintage clothing, they vowed to always be there for one another. The reception took place in an art gallery complete with art on the walls and up on the stage.
