More from Portland

I wish I could remember the name of that park in NW Portland! (where I took Jenni and Johnny for their engagement photos) This fence is made up of old railroad tracks, all rusted out. This just in: I remembered the name of that park. It’s called Tanner Springs, and it’s between 10th & 11th and Northrup & Marshall.

A Funny Moment

As this bride was waiting at the hair salon she noticed this magazine. The first page she turned to was the one you see here. I heard her laughter and turned around to catch this image. The caption says it all…

Country Inn Wedding

I’ve shot perhaps a dozen weddings at the Country Inn and they’ve all been great fun. This one was no exception. I really like how the color of the flower petals (thrown by the guests) contrasts with the black and white of the bride and groom.  I also edited this shot with selective coloring, leaving just the petals in color, and it turned out great.

A Walk in the Woods

Not many couples know about the woods and the pond at King Estate but it’s a wonderful location for photographs. The dappled light coming through was a nice complement to Julie’s dress. I did a little sepia tint in Lightroom and that’s about it.

May the Best Bride Win!

Emmy and Sam were married in Pocatello, Idaho. Both are members of the Idaho State track team and were able to use the track for their ceremony. After the nuptials were finished I asked them to prove who was the fastest. Emmy won! Must be the shoes 🙂

Finishing touches

There are lots of places for a bride to get ready: a hotel room, her parents’ house, a bridal suite at the wedding venue, etc. This, however, was the most scenic place I’ve ever seen a bride receive those finishing touches. Another Bridal Veil Lakes wedding.

Mt Pisgah Wedding

Emily & Bilyan were married in the Serbian Orthodox church here in Eugene last Sunday, but wanted their formal photos taken out at Mt Pisgah. It had been cloudy and raining most of the morning so we were all very happy with how the weather turned out later in the afternoon. Having scouted out the area the day before, I came across this old tree and knew I had to use it in some of their photos. I really like the contrast of the rustic, grainy wood juxtaposed against the formal wedding attire of the bride and groom. A little fill flash to light up their faces was all that was needed to complete the scene. Emily and Bilyan live in Chicago and are having a reception there in three weeks…I’m betting all their guests will wish they lived in Oregon!
