Abernethy Center Wedding Photography

Kelsey and Joe’s love was so heartfelt and inspiring–you could feel it in the air.  They share similar values and personal paths, and laugh like they’ve known each other forever.  It was truly a beautiful day, and we’re so grateful to be a part of it.

It’s always a pleasure to photograph weddings at the Abernethy Center, as one of their preferred photographers.  And all of the laughter at Kelsey and Joe’s wedding made it that much more enjoyable.

In Love at Ainsworth House

Andie and Andrew (yes, those are their names!  A perfect pair!) were so much fun to photograph at their wedding at Ainsworth House and Gardens this summer.  They are both so sweet and kind…the sort of people you just feel happy about, knowing that they found each other.  There were a lot of laughs, and a few tears, over the course of the day, which is just right for a wedding….

Check out their wedding story here:

First Dance

Andie and Andrew had a dance prepared for the reception, and it was both beautiful and moving to watch!

Golden Hour Portraits

We headed outside at the Golden Hour for some portraits, and it was so lovely! Easily our favorite time of day to photograph, especially portraits of people in love. Everything just glows.

The Sparkler Sendoff at Ainsworth House

Wedding on the River

Hayley and Carlos gathered all their friends and family at Bargeway Pub and Catering in The Dalles to celebrate their sweet love. The venue had everything this couple needed: a beautiful outdoor space for a ceremony that was flipped for the reception, inside seating with food and music, a large grassy area for kids to play, all on the river with a beautiful view.

With Lots of Love

Hayley and Carlos are both down-to-earth and loving people, and it showed in all the faces of their loved ones. With such grand support they are destined for a great life together!

A Perfect Elopement

On a beautiful fall day, surrounded by their closest family, Alexis and Will said their I Do’s at McMenamins Kennedy School. Officiated by Alexis’s mom, there were a lot of tears and inside jokes, and then cake to celebrate! 

Good Things Take Time

Though they met in high school, they didn’t start dating until college. Since they’ve known each other for a while, they already have a lot of funny stories. We really hope you continue to see the silly side of life and never stop laughing.

Franklin HS Senior Photo 1

 

Portland’s Franklin High School Senior Photos

I met Harper at one of my favorite locations for photographing senior photos, and really enjoyed working with this thoughtful and bright young lady.  (And since then, I’ve photographed a whole bunch of her Franklin High School friends’ senior photos too!)  We had a lot of time to chat as we walked between portrait locations, and I enjoyed getting to know her.  Read on to learn a little more about this high school senior’s loves!


What Harper Loves

“I play both basketball and tennis. I love the team work aspect of both sports, and I love how tennis gives me a chance to be outdoors.

I love to spend time with friends, cook, and workout.

“I love going on road trips and would love to do more with friends because I feel like it’s a great bonding activity and would be a fun celebration of end of senior year.”

Future Plans After High School

I asked Harper what she wants to do after high school, and this is what she told me:

I’m planning to study sociology, but have not decided where yet. I would love to be able to help people and make the world a better place and have a content life full of loving friendships and relationships.”

This seems fitting for someone who clearly has lots of healthy friendships, and show clear evidence of a caring heart!

Zoe’s Personal Style

I’ve had so much fun this year photographing 2021 high school seniors from Franklin High School in Portland!  (Check out this post featuring senior photos of 4 senior friends from Franklin….)  Zoe came to us after seeing the senior pictures of her friend Harper.  I loved working with Zoe to capture her personal style in her senior photos.


A Fashion Designer in the Making

Zoe wants to be a fashion designer or stylist, which is obvious the first time you meet her.  Her personal sense of style is unmistakable.  She loves making clothes (in addition to doing makeup), and we had so much fun photographing her in various outfits, in Lake Oswego.  Scroll through her senior pictures here to get a sense for her style.

Pirate engagement photos

I like Tyler and Ruth.  Not only are they personable, thoughtful, and earnest, but there’s a spark there…some creativity and delight under the surface, which I really enjoy.

Ruth is a crafter, and her favorite craft is sewing.  I asked her recently, as we were planning their engagement portrait session, if she had any interesting clothing she could bring along.  When she mentioned a pirate costume, I said she had to bring it.  And she did not disappoint!

When she arrived at the park for their engagement photos, the pirate costume just kept unfolding: boots, coats, belts, swords, scabbards, a flintlock pistol….  And all of it color coordinated.  I was so impressed.

And the photos….  Well, see for yourself.  I think they’re some of the most fun engagement portraits I’ve ever taken.

Even their non-pirate outfits were color coordinated!  This girl is amazing!  Tyler, you’re a lucky man.  I can’t wait to see what your actual wedding looks like in June, at Abernethy Center!

Ellie’s senior photos

Four Friends from Franklin 

It’s been a wonderful year for senior photos, in spite of all the craziness associated with Covid, distance learning, social distancing, and a recession.  We’ve had so much fun photographing a diverse group of high school seniors, making the most of their disrupted senior year.  One of the more enjoyable experiences this year has involved photographing senior portraits for a group of friends from Franklin High School.  At first we didn’t even know they were friends….

Carmen’s senior photos

They Just Kept Coming!

I started by photographing Harper’s senior photos, at the Tualatin River National Wildlife Refuge.  I knew she was from Portland’s Franklin High School, but that’s it.  But then Oby came in for her senior photo session, and she mentioned that she knew Harper.  Small world, I thought.

Then Carmen came in for her senior portrait session at the studio, and she mentioned that she was friends with Harper and Oby, and that Oby had referred her.  

And the same day I photographed Carmen’s senior pictures, Ellie called and asked about a session, saying that Carmen had referred her.  I still had a slot open that very day, so with just a couple hours’ notice, she met me at the Refuge for a beautiful evening senior photo session.  It was 42 degrees, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at the photos!

Referral Rewards for Senior Pictures

We love photographing senior photos so much!  And we love to reward our seniors for their referrals by giving out $20 Dutch Bros gift cards for each one.  Thank you, Franklin Friends, for referring each other for your senior photo sessions!  I’m so grateful.

Portland Senior Photos on the St Johns Bridge

Abbie asked if we could take some of her senior photos on the St Johns Bridge, and we thought that was a great idea.  Actually, it turned out to be rather challenging, with all of the very loud traffic rushing by, just inches from our elbows.  But we did it!  And those classic arches in the background of her senior pictures were worth the walk.

Sunset High School Senior Photos

As we walked around Portland’s Cathedral Park for her senior photo session, we talked about the things Abbie is passionate about.  This cheerleader at Sunset High School loves being in front of the crowds, and also adventuring with her friends and family.  Here’s some of what she told su

Sunset High School Cheerleader

“I’m a cheerleader, specifically a flyer, so I’m the one that gets tossed in the air. I’ve been doing cheer for now 3 years, and won an all american award at my cheer camp last year. I love football and basketball games, being in front of a crowd doing what I love is amazing!”⁠

Favorite Hobbies?

“Hanging out with my friends is definitely my favorite, we go on a lot of adventures, just recently we went to Hagg Lake. But also trying out new food places.”

 

Portland

Any Recent Travel?

“I went to Hawaii a couple years ago and experiencing the culture was truly life changing. Hawaii is the most amazing place I’ve ever been!”

Portland Senior Photos at Cathedral Park

Whie we were taking Abbie’s senior pictures in Portland’s Cathedral Park, we came across this funky car in a parking lot next to the bridge. We couldn’t pass it up for a photo op.

Sherwood High School Senior Photos

Morgan is a senior at Sherwood High School this year, and in spite of the pandemic she has a great attitude!  We had such a beautiful evening photographing her senior photos at the local wildlife refuge, right at the Golden Hour.  It was perfect.  And she’s a pretty amazing young lady.  Read on to find out more….

A Senior with a Heart as Big as Her Smile

I asked Morgan what her biggest hopes and dreams are.  In addition to going to college after high school, she said, “My biggest dream is to find a career I love that will have a big impact on the ‘disabled’ community.”  How beautiful is that?

A Few of Her Favorite Things

“I have been a Varsity swimmer every year of high school. I love the team and the competitiveness of the sport.”

“I play piano and I really enjoy it because of how calming it is.”

“I also really enjoy reading, hanging out with friends, and traveling.”
