a field of crocuses at jenkins estate for high school senior portraits

Riverdale High School senior Lillian joined us at Jenkins Estate in Beaverton for her senior photos.  Perfect time of year for senior pictures, as the flowers and leaves were so colorful.  We asked Lillian a little about her life as a high school senior, and here’s what she shared with us…

Why did you choose FritzPhoto for your senior photos?

I had a friend from Riverdale recommend FritzPhoto to me. Also, you have great reviews, and my friends enjoyed working with you.

Do you play any sports?

I do not play any sports, but I am a runner!

Do you play any musical instruments?

I play violin, and I have taken lessons for many years.

What are your favorite hobbies?

Some of my favorite hobbies include running, hiking, painting, drawing, reading, and biking.

Any recent travel that was life-changing for you?

I went to London and Paris my freshman year of high school and loved it. I also went to Loreto, Mexico last year. Traveling out of the country has made me interested in other cultures, and I plan on studying abroad in college.

What are you planning to do after high school graduation?

I plan on going to a four year university after high school to get my bachelor’s degree. I am interested in psychology, art, and nursing. I have a lot of different interests, but I want to explore all of them to see which one is best for me.

What are your biggest hopes and dreams?

I hope to study abroad or travel to multiple countries in college. I want to see the world instead of being in just one place. I want to graduate college and go to graduate school or medical school. Also, I hope to learn how to improve my painting and drawing skills even more.

Ainsworth House wedding photography black and white

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.

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!

summer wedding forest golden hour

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.

Westside High School Athlete

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.

GQ Photos

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!
