More from Mt Hood Organic Farms

Before I get too busy with the rest of my 2012 weddings, I thought I’d post another  image from Mt Hood Organic Farms. The sun had already set and the only light in this photo came from the fellow with the sparkler…

Allison and Josh were married at Mt Hood Organic Farm this past Saturday. Located 15 miles south of Hood River, the farm has a spectacular view of Mt Hood and is a great wedding venue.

I’m just now going through all the images in Lightroom and have picked out a few favorites for this post.

And here’s another one from that day:

Jumping for Joy

This is from a wedding I shot last Saturday, along the Willamette River near Harrisburg (Oregon), at The Riverbend Resort. I had Robert leap off the rock you see behind the bride, and I told him to jump away from her so there’d be some spacing between them.

King Estate Sunset

It’s that time of year again; the time of year here in western Oregon when we have long nights with lots of golden sunsets. Danielle & Brian were married at The Pavilion at King Estate.

A Close Race!

The golf course at The Sandtrap (another amazing McMenamins venue) was empty for a spell so I decided to have the wedding party race towards me. Looks like the bride wins!

Anne & Ian on the beach

When I picked up my new speedlights (the Canon 600EX-RT), I was mostly excited about the built-in radio transmitters. However, they also have much better E-TTL (one way the flash interacts with the camera) than my previous flashes. This is one such example, using the flash as a something more than a bit of fill; I wanted to really light them up while maintaining a rich, textured background. This is another of a series from The Sandtrap in Gearhart, Oregon.

She’s a handful!

This may be an old photography trick but Anne & Ian thought it’d be funny so I shot a few like this one, making it look like the groom was holding the bride in his hand. Another image from the McMenamins Sandtrap in Gearhart, Oregon.

Here’s another one from this past Sunday, along the Oregon coast near Gearhart and The Sandtrap Hotel. The clouds had just lifted and the sky was a very nice shade of blue.

Happy 4th of July!

Anne & Ian were married at the McMenamins Sandtrap in Gearhart, Oregon this past Sunday. As we walked along the beach at sunset I knew I wanted to make this image for a July 4th posting:)
