Portland LeftBank Annex Wedding PhotographerWe first met Jeff and Ashleigh at Oregon Bride Magazine‘s Urban Unveiled event, and liked them immediately.  They are both friendly and goofy, and we loved talking with them.

So we were really excited when they booked us as their wedding photographers!  Their wedding was held at Portland’s LeftBank Annex, a cool indoor wedding and event venue across from the Portland Rose Garden.  Lots of big windows, and some cool warehouse/vintage tones.  With Jeff and Ashleigh’s decorating sensibilities, at turned into a hip place for a beautiful wedding.  Check out the wedding details below!

Jeff and Ashleigh had their wedding vows in these cool vintage notebooks, which they read from during the moving ceremony.

When guests arrived, they were invited to type (on an old manual typewriter) their good wishes for the couple’s marriage.

The beautiful wedding cake, from Dreamcakes, had this cool topper that Jeff installed just before guests arrived.

And yes, they did have a life-size Jenga game on hand (and Cornhole) for guests to play at the wedding reception.  Brilliant idea; it kept guests young and old entertained for hours!

Beautiful weddings like this don’t just happen on their own; many people worked hard to make this a successful wedding.  Here are some of the wedding vendors that helped:

most awesome wedding photo ever

When a couple is as down to earth as Alexandria and Joshua are, you know their wedding will be one for the books. I love that they went for an organic, bohemian vibe, including touches of moss and kilim. Hosted at a friend’s family farm in Texas, their day was all about celebrating their relationship with each other, as well as honoring their tight-knit community of friends and family. They’re both two of my very close friends, so I got teary-eyed a good amount behind the camera throughout the day! One of the most beautiful days.

Alderbrook Resort Wedding Photography

Brides and grooms are often nervous about hiring destination wedding photographers for their wedding.  But at FritzPhoto, we’ve traveled the world photographing weddings.  From New York to Napa Valley, Mexico to Thailand, we’ve photographed at some pretty cool wedding venues.

So when Chad and Marcy asked us–Portland wedding photographers that we are–to photograph their wedding on Washington’s Puget Sound, we said, “No problem!”

Their wedding was held at the Alderbrook Resort and Spa, right on the water in Union, Washington.  (Who wouldn’t want to get married in a place called “Union”?)  An absolutely stunning place for a wedding.


Check out the back of Marcy’s wedding dress!  Stunning.

With a view of the Olympic Mountains, the Alderbrook Resort is just a stunning wedding venue. Alderbrook Resort Wedding Photography

As a takeaway gift, the couple gave their wedding guests air plants–which doubled as their place tags at the reception.

Live music always makes for a great party at a wedding reception.  Marcy and Chad’s reception was no exception!


Thank you for trusting us to be your destination wedding photographers, Marcy and Chad!  It was an honor–and also a lot of fun!

FritzPhoto-Portland Dance Photographer

I’ve been photographing the Jefferson Dancers in Portland for a number of years.  It’s awe-inspiring to watch these talented young dancers practice, day after day, honing their craft, strengthening their bodies, and blowing away their audiences when they perform.  I’ve really enjoyed being their photographer.

FritzPhoto-Lillian-Dance photos portland

Lillian goes to Jefferson High School in Portland, and I’ve photographed her several times before as part of the Jefferson Dancers.  So I was pretty excited when she asked me to be her senior portrait photographer.  She said she wanted mostly dance photos, plus a few portraits.  So that’s what we photographed!  Finding a cool industrial area near our photography studio, Lillian and I and her mom set out to capture the grace and beauty of dance. Portland Dance Photographer Fritz Photo

Senior Portraits are some of our favorite portraits to create. We work hard to capture the true nature of your senior year of school, when you’re discovering so much about who you are and what you love.  It’s exciting to watch Lillian explore her talents as a dancer.

Amazing wedding photos Portland OregonMolly and David may be the sweetest couple I’ve ever worked with. They wanted a rustic, autumn theme for their November wedding. The event planners, Yeti & The Beast, hunted in the woods for greenery, dried blooms, vines and twisted young trees to create the perfect altar and wedding decor. Every moment of their wedding day was completely magical, and it was so obvious these two were head over heels in love!
Happy wedding photographs Portland

FritzPhoto-Fozia-057

When Fozia called me up this summer, saying she needed a model portfolio photo shoot, tomorrow, I said, “No problem!”  She was entering a competition for Miss Africa USA, and needed fresh photographs for her portfolio and contest entry.  So we called in our fabulous hair and makeup artist (from AJ’s Hair Design and Makeup), and went to work.

We photographed in the studio, and outdoors, with the traditional African clothing Fozia brought with her, to create these stunning looks. FritzPhoto-Portland Model Portfolio

Best Wedding Photographers Portland OregonWill and Celina tied the knot in July in Bellingham, WA, at Evergreen Gardens. Such an amazingly beautiful day under evergreen trees with their awesome friends and family! The way these two looked at each other all day was so captivating.

On their tables they typed out their favorite poetry on old book pages which was so gorgeous and unique.

They had a delicious variety of pies for dessert and personal smores packages for guests to roast over the fire during sunset. Every single part of this day was magical, and these two were glowing in love the entire time!

FritzPhoto-Hinderliter-244

I place a lot of importance on building a rapport with the couples I photograph during our first consultation. Being able to do that is an important aspect of being a wedding photographer. However, I don’t always have the opportunity to meet every couple in person before their wedding, which means that it’s necessary for me to build that rapport on the spot at their wedding. That was the case with Karly and Robert, who were married this July at Zenith Vineyard in Salem.

Before their wedding, I had limited communication with them because they live in South Korea where they teach English. They actually met for the first time while teaching at the same university, and Robert later proposed to Karly when he surprised her at her apartment with a home-cooked pasta dinner. It just so happens that I also taught English in South Korea for a year and a half about seven years ago. So I was very excited to chat with them about their experiences. It was the perfect way to break the ice, and they quickly settled into the photo shoot with ease.

Michelle and Tyler exude elegance and grace, so it was only natural that their wedding did as well.

From the ceremony at the Divinity School’s chapel to the Lawn Club for their reception, every detail was filled with a classic, timeless feel.

We really enjoy capturing the little moments that make a wedding day special.  As people get ready for the wedding, beautiful things happen, such as this intimate moment between grandmother and granddaughter. Portland-Wedding-Photographer-FritzPhoto-16 Portland-Wedding-Photographer-FritzPhoto-17

And there’s nothing like the moment when the groom first sees the bride, at the First Look!  It’s often an emotional moment, filled with awe and joy, and sometimes tears.
