NW Portland Senior Photo at Temple Beth Israel

Senior Photos at our NW Portland Studio

Yvie is a senior at Oregon City High School, and it was a real treat to photograph her senior portraits.  Yvie likes to read and paint, and loves theater, so we had a lot to talk about….

There are so many beautiful locations to photograph senior pictures around our Northwest Portland photo studio.  We walked and talked between locations and outfit changes, and had a great time. 

 

Professional Hair and Makeup Too!

Did you know that in addition to award-winning portrait photography, we also offer professional hair and makeup for our clients?  Before we stepped out to photograph, Yvie took advantage of our professional hair and makeup services at the photo studio.  Our artists are prepped and ready with Covid-safe work practices.  They’re also super friendly, so everyone had a great time!  I think Yvie really enjoyed a little pampering prior to her senior photos.

Hailey’s Senior Portraits

I spent a beautiful summer Saturday morning photographing Hailey’s senior photos in Portland!  We started out in Southeast Portland photographing her among some amazing mural art and graffiti.  She’d asked if we could start there, and I knew where a concentration of colorful artwork was located, so we had fun photographing her among some beautiful and crazy scenery.

Senior Photos at the Portland Rose Garden

Next we headed up town and photographed more senior photos at the Portland Rose Gardens. It’s a beautiful location, and even though it’s popular and crowded, I know the best spots for portrait photography. We had a great time talking about her love of sports and her time at Vancouver’s Fort Vancouver High School.  (Incidentally, my dad went to school there!)

Class of 2021

I had so much fun photographing Hailey’s senior photos.  This is going to be an odd and challenging year for high school seniors, but they’re going to make it.  And if they have attitudes as good as Hailey’s they’re going to be just fine.  Congratulations, Hailey!

Real Family Photos…

When Sara asked me to take her family photos, she had some ulterior motives.  She recently started a coaching practice for moms, and in addition to traditional family photos, she wanted some images she could use for her business.  So she orchestrated some, well, realistic scenarios for the camera.  I thought it was hilarious, and so did her boys.

Family Portraits on the Farm

Tim and Sara live on several acres outside of Beaverton, and we utilized their property for their portrait session.  What a beautiful setting for family photos!  The only thing we didn’t include were the chickens….

This Family Likes to Have Fun!

I love it when we get to capture the ‘flavor’ of a family in their family portrait session. In addition to some classic family portraits, we also let the kids goof around a bit and be themselves. And there was silly string for a finale! It’s a great portrait of a family that loves to laugh together.

Estacada Wedding Photography During the Pandemic

Michelle and David’s wedding was my first wedding during the pandemic season, so we weren’t sure how everything was going to go. However we woke up to a beautiful summer’s day, and drove out to the venue in Estacada, and the whole day just went so smoothly. 

The First Look

The couple and I were really good friends, and it was an honor to be able to photograph the biggest day of their lives. I even got choked up during their first look, but I was (barely) able to compose myself. Between the gorgeous light, fantastic burritos, and beautiful venue, it made for a perfect wedding.

Dodging the Oregon Rain

Nick and Hannah’s wedding started out a little rocky with the weather. They were using the groom’s property to host the outdoor wedding, and even in August, the Oregon rain just kept on being a problem. Once the ceremony started however, it was smooth sailing from there. There was even a ray of sunshine hitting right on the arch. From there, between the dance parties that broke out, to the touching (and embarrassing) toasts, it ended up being an absolutely gorgeous wedding day, and so fun to photograph!

We asked her a little about her life, and here’s what she told us:

Bride and groom kissing with masks on

Love in the Time of Covid-19

Ezy and Kevin decided that a worldwide pandemic wasn’t going to stop them getting married, so they turned their large church-wedding into a small backyard wedding at a family property.  And even with all the precautions in place, it was beautiful!

It was really interesting getting to chat with the bride’s hair and makeup artist, Blossom and Beauty, and learning how her business has had to change to ensure client safety during a pandemic, including using gloves, mask, face shield, and disinfectants.  She still did a great job!

Pandemic Precautions at a Wedding

Thankfully with the use of long lenses and a mask, I was able to stay socially distant for the entire day. The bride and groom scaled down the guest list to just 13 people (with approval from the county) and included the rest of their friends and family through a Zoom call.  But even though the gathering was small, they made time for several meaningful moments, including a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and greeting of their guests with the bride dressed in a beautiful Korean hanbok gown.  Even the rain didn’t dampen their spirits, and we were lucky to find some breaks in the rain to get outside for portraits.

Congratulations, Ezy and Kevin!
