Century High School Senior Photos

Angelica is a senior this year at Century High School, and we had the privilege of photographing her senior portraits.  She wanted to take her senior photos somewhere outdoors, with water, so we photographed at Macleay Park, in NW Portland.  A beautiful day for photographing a beautiful lady!

Do you play any sports? 

This year I’m doing wrestling for the first time, and I really enjoy it!

Ainsworth House Wedding Photography

Celina and Russell’s wedding was a fabulous celebration reflecting what was important to them, their friends, and family.  Their family came from far and wide to be there and support them in marriage, and I left there feeling like I was now part of their family.  And, it was clear that Russ felt like he was the luckiest man alive to be marrying Celina! 

 

Married Beneath the Pine Tree

The Ainsworth House, in Oregon City, has this amazing pine tree beneath which the outdoor wedding ceremonies are held.  It is such a stunning location for a wedding!

A Balloon Artist at the Wedding!

I particularly loved the balloon artist that they hired for the reception.  I’m sure that it was meant for the kids, but by the end of the night everyone was wearing a special balloon hat… even the bride and groom! night photography sparkler fun creative summer wedding

A Sparkler Sendoff

The Welton-Guzman families are some of the nicest and sincerest people. I am looking forward to photographing Russ’s mother’s wedding in the near future!  YAY!

Cornelius Pass Roadhouse Wedding

Brooke and David had a vibrant wedding at McMenamin’s Cornelius Pass Roadhouse, filled with fun and a ton of laughter. We had so much fun with them! 

We asked them a few questions and here’s what they said…

What was your favorite detail from your wedding?

A favorite detail is probably the weather! The ceremony and dinner were both held outside, and we decided four days before the wedding to not put up any tents. The weather could not have been any more perfect on our wedding day.

we love photographing couples at their weddings

What was your favorite moment of your wedding?

One of our favorite moments was the very last song at the reception. All of our guests made a circle around us and swayed and sang while we slow danced in the middle of the circle through the whole song. It was a great way to be able to see all the guests at once and to slowly take it all in. We felt surrounded by a lot of love!  

What was the funniest thing that happened at your wedding?

While one of our guests was getting down on the dance floor, his pants suddenly split. Someone grabbed a napkin and tucked it into his pants to cover up the split, and he kept on dancing the whole night.

Is there anything else that you’d like to share?

The whole day from beginning to end was so much fun! Everything went so smoothly and we both felt happy and relaxed throughout the entire day. It was such a special experience to have so many close friends and family all together in the same place.

Beaverton High School Senior Photos

Kelley is in her senior year at Beaverton High School, and is a very creative and talented person. Her favorite hobbies are musical theater, dance, singing and art. With such passion and determination, she is destined for wonderful things ahead!  For her senior photo shoot, Kelley chose a park that she grew up going to, that has a tree trunk that she climbed most of her childhood.

We asked her some questions about her life, her senior year, and her future, and here’s what she told us:

Rosio and Walter had a gorgeous and lively wedding at Mt Hood Oregon Resort, and a great group of people to help them celebrate and laugh with. We asked Rosio and Walter a few questions about their wedding day, and here’s what they shared with us….

What was your favorite moment of your wedding?  

Definitely walking down the aisle with my dad, and seeing my future husband for the first time at our ceremony, surrounded with so much love from our guests in a picture perfect outdoor setting.   

What was your favorite detail from your wedding?  

I loved everything about my bouquet. I selected a unique flower for my bouquet- a king protea. The protea our florist Lauren from Honor Flowers selected for my bouquet was perfectly opened, and symbolized a new beginning.  

Where did you find your wedding attire?  

Back in California at Lovella Bridal in Glendale, CA. My dress is designed by the talented Martina Liana.  

What was the funniest thing that happened at your wedding? 

Believe it or not, we left our rings in our processional room, which we made it funny. The rings are the main symbol at the ceremony and I knew something could go wrong, but at the moment we were wrapped up in wedding feels that it was all too funny, our guests thought it was a joke, we all laughed and continued with our ceremony after our coordinator ran and grabbed our rings.

Everyone had a good laugh when they realized the rings were still in the processional room!

fun couple at their summer wedding in oregon city

‘En Garde’ at Ainsworth House!

This was such a fun wedding to photograph at Ainsworth House, in Oregon City.  Alyssa and Nick and their family and friends had such a great time, and we just tagged along and captured it all.  (I think this is the second or third wedding we’ve photographed that included swords!)  After the wedding, we asked them a few questions about some of their favorite memories, and this is what they shared with us:

wedding under big beautiful tree in oregon city

What was your favorite moment of your wedding? 

After the ceremony and group photos when Cambrae was taking pictures of the rings and bouquet and we got to sit in the ceremony space by ourselves and let it sink in that we were married at last. It felt more right than I can put into words.

 

Where did you find your wedding attire? 

David’s Bridal (my dress), Azazie (gals’ dresses), and Men’s Warehouse (guys’ tuxes)

What was your favorite detail from your wedding? 

My mom made all the bouquets and boutonnieres out of book and map pages because I’m allergic to most flowers.  They looked beautiful and really captured us.  Same with our sweetheart table, we got to show off our bride and groom corgi mugs!

What was the funniest thing that happened at your wedding? 

My grandma joined the dancing group in the song Low by Flo Rida!  Nana got low!

Is there anything else that you’d like to share? 

The ceremony was a perfect representation of our love and how important our friends and family are to us.  We had two of our best friends officiate, one of our friends play a trumpet concerto, one friend read a poem he wrote for us, and one read a passage from Winnie the Pooh.  It was perfectly unique 🙂

London Smalley’s Senior Photos

London Smalley is a basketball and football player at Westview Highschool in Portland.  We had so much fun photographing his senior portraits!  With permission to photograph in the gym and on the field at Westside HS, we were able to capture some pretty cool senior photos of this handsome and talented young man.

London plays both basketball and football at Westside, and clearly loves it. (In fact, check out some of the videos of his touchdowns and other great plays here!) So it was great to be able to incorporate these things into his senior portraits.

Not only is London talented on the court and field, but he’s also a really nice guy.  And pretty handsome, especially in that tailored suit!  Thanks for letting us create some memorable senior photos of this important time in your life!

portland senior portratis

We had so much fun photographing Shelby’s senior photos at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge.  Aside from being gorgeous, intelligent, and funny, Shelby’s dad designed the wildlife refuge!  She told me that there’s a photo of her as a little curly-haired girl in the visitor’s center, from when the building was dedicated.  It’s such a beautiful location for senior portraits, but this made it even more special.

While we were photographing Shelby’s senior portraits, we asked this Wilson High School senior all kinds of questions.  Here are some things we learned….

What are your favorite hobbies?

Travel, horseback riding and photography. I used to play soccer, and even played the trumpet for a year.

Any recent travel that was life-changing for you?

I went to Venice last Thanksgiving and France over the summer. Both were amazing trips and I wish I’d never left!

What are you most excited about in your senior year?

Finishing up this chapter of my life and starting a new one. Getting to really become my own person and go out on my own.

What are you planning to do after high school graduation?

Hopefully I go to either Western Washington University or University of Minnesota Duluth, or maybe even Bozeman!

What are your biggest hopes and dreams?

Just being able to see the world and live a life that makes me happy. Have a job I enjoy and really making the most out of everything. Being a creative writer would be amazing or even going into journalism. I want to continue with my photography and I hope that’s never something I stop doing.

How did you find FritzPhoto? Why did you choose FritzPhoto for your senior photos?

Online. I really liked the locations and styles shown on the website. Fritz seemed like a really fun and he was a great guy to take senior photos with. fun senior photos in portland oregon Woodrow Wilson High School Senior Photos

Thanks, Shelby, for the privilege of photographing your senior pictures, and at such a special time and place in your life!

Lincoln High School Senior Photos

Emma-Lee is a senior at Lincoln High School, in Portland.  At the beginning of our senior portrait session, she told me she felt self-conscious in front of the camera.  But within a few minutes she was this stunning super-model! 

It’s pretty common for people to tell us they feel awkward in front of the camera.  But after photographing seniors, and so many other people, for a few decades, I really enjoy helping people feel comfortable in front of the camera.  As Emma-Lee and I walked in the NW Portland neighborhood around our photo studio, taking her senior photos, I learned a lot about this lovely young lady.

Lincoln High School Portraits

How do you stay active?

I used to do dance, and was on the cheer team.  This year I’m focusing on my studies in high school.

 

What are your favorite hobbies?

In my free time, I love dancing. I also love spending time with kids, and free-writing!

Any recent travel that was life-changing for you? Tell us a story!

In the summer of 2019, I traveled to New York for my first time. It was amazing!  Additionally, I went to China, which was an amazing cultural experience.

What are you most excited about in your senior year?

I am excited to continue my love for the Arabic language, and incorporating that into my future career. I am also excited to continue my Forensics class.

What are you planning to do after high school graduation?

This summer I am excited to just relax and spend time with my family before going away to college.

 

What are your biggest hopes and dreams?

My ultimate goal is to find a career with speaking Arabic and incorporate that in my day to day life. I aspire to be a medical examiner, or work somewhere within the Forensics field.

Why did you choose FritzPhoto for your senior photos?

My mom was researching candidates to take my senior portraits, and I chose Fritz because I loved how natural the photos looked as well as how mildly unedited they seemed!

 

Emma-Lee, thank you so much for the pleasure of taking your senior photos!

bride and groom at their wedding at abernethy had everything they wanted

“We had such an amazing time at our wedding and it turned out exactly how we wanted it to.”

 

Abernethy Center Wedding Photos

Danielle and Joe had an absolutely stunning and amazingly fun wedding at Abernethy Center, in Oregon City, so we asked this happy couple to tell us a few details about their wedding and this is what they said: 

 

Can you share a memorable story about an important person at the wedding?

Bride: My mom did everything she could to make sure, after 9 years together, that our wedding was everything we wanted it to be. She even thought of ways to make sure that my husband’s parents, who passed away in 2015, had seats at the ceremony and a place at the reception. My parents even hosted the rehearsal dinner at their house and invited all my husband’s parent’s siblings to make sure my husband had people that he loves around him on that day.

 

Where did you find your wedding attire?

Groom & Groomsmen – Men’s Warehouse

Bride – Ania Bridal

Bridesmaids – David’s Bridal

What was your favorite moment of your wedding?

Groom: The First Reveal was my favorite, finally saw my wife in the dress she’d chosen. Absolutely beautiful!

Bride: I have a few favorite moments: listening to music while getting ready with my bridesmaids and my mom, seeing my husband for the first time in his tux, our first dance, the amazing food, sitting in our hotel room after the wedding and eating left over appetizers and talking about how amazing the day was.

The happy couple at their first look at Abernethy.

Was there something that made you cry at your wedding?

Groom: Memory photos of missing family, I couldn’t even look at it.

Bride: I have a few. The chairs with flowers and pictures on them at the ceremony to represent my husband’s parents and my grandpa who have passed away. There was also a memory table at the reception for them.

My maid of honor, who is my sister, made me cry during her speech.

I cried during the father/daughter dance with my dad.

Also, when my husband’s godmother took his mom’s place for the mother/son dance.

Was there something that made you laugh?

Groom: Best man speech had both nervous laughter and relieved laughter.

Bride: When one of my best friends and my brother had a dance off that ended with my brother doing the worm.

What were your favorite wedding decoration details?

Groom: The lighting once it got dark was fantastic due to the Edison Bulbs. Lights up in memory.

Bride: The Edison Bulbs were amazing. The chandeliers on the gazebo and the tent were beautiful. The centerpieces were exactly what I wanted, they looked beautiful on the soft blue table cloths.

The groom dancing with his godmother.

Is there anything else that you’d like to share?

Groom: Fantastic facility, great view. Set up taken care of. Made our day about us, instead of about everything that needed to be done.

Bride: We had such an amazing time at our wedding and it turned out exactly how we wanted it to. We got to focus on enjoying each other because the Abernethy’s staff had everything planned and organized so well. The event space was so beautiful, and the flowers fit in perfectly with the space. Our DJ played a great mix of songs from the present and the past; everyone was on the dance floor. We are so grateful to everyone that came, including our friends and family that flew in from New Mexico, New York and Scotland. We felt very loved that they made the trip to celebrate with us.

high school senior portraits in front of murals

Aloha High School Senior Photos!

Katelyn is a senior at Aloha High School.  She wanted something different for her senior photos, and her artistic side decided on graffiti and murals for our backdrop.  So we headed into Southeast Portland for senior photos, and had a blast!  We asked her a few questions about her life and her senior year, and here’s what she told us….

Any recent travel that was life-changing for you?

Katelyn’s family is very large, and very close, even thought they come from far away on the Mariana Islands.  “I visited my grandma on our home island, Saipan,” she told me as we took her senior photos, and the love for her family and family home was obvious in the way she spoke.

What are you planning to do after high school graduation?

“Live with my grandma for a couple years and help her out.”

Her Favorite Senior Photo Backdrop…

Katelyn was in love with this headless alien we found plastered to the side of a building.  I asked her at the end of our senior portrait photo session if there’s anything else she wanted to do, and she smiled and said, “Well, I got a dumpster and an alien in my photos, so I’m pretty happy!”  I love that.

What are your biggest hopes and dreams?

“To be happy, healthy, and successful.”

What a treat to create your senior photos with you, Katelyn!  You are as colorful as the backdrops in your portraits!
