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!

Contact us if you’re interesting to book us for your wedding!

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.

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.

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.

    fritzphoto - Thanks so much, Tera! Being a senior portrait photographer in Portland is the best, especially when we get to photograph seniors as talented and beautiful as Lillian!

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

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!

Portland Senior Portraits

It’s Fall, and it’s Senior Portrait Photography Season in Portland!  And what a way to start it off, by taking portraits of Sophie!  Aside from being gorgeous, she’s also a talented musician, and loves to travel (most recently in the Middle East).  After working with our hair and makeup stylist in the studio, we set out for some location portraits in beautiful Northwest Portland.

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.

    fritzphoto - Thanks, Heather! We love wedding photography at Zenith Vineyard, and Karly and Robert were such a wonderful bride and groom. What a lovely day.


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.

Columbia River Gorge Wedding Photos

What do you say when you get a call from an Indian model who wants you to photograph her wedding?  Well, yes, of course.

Kirtana modeled in India for years, although now she lives in the US and is a writer and editor.  Her wedding to Rex, a geologist, was the delight of our Spring wedding photography season.

We started out the day before the wedding taking portraits of the couple up at the Multnomah Falls Lodge (where Rex used to work for the Forestry Service), and at the Gorge Vista House.  Some of the most stunning scenery for wedding portraits ever. FritzPhoto-WhistlerEng-039 FritzPhoto-WhistlerEng-004The next day, everyone gathered at the recently remodeled Victorian Belle, in North Portland.  This historic mansion and grounds are stunningly beautiful in the spring sunlight, and were the perfect setting for Rex and Kirtana’s wedding.

Rex and Kirtana have both danced for many years, and their choreographed First Dance was stunning.

Senior portraits in the spring at our new property…what could be better than photographing a beautiful dancer like Gaby? She’s danced with the Portland Ballet School, San Francisco Ballet School, and now she’s about to graduate.

It’s been so fun working with her family over the years: first her mom’s wedding, then her sister’s senior portraits, then her brother’s wedding last year at the Columbia Gorge Hotel, and now Gaby!
