2018 Oregon Wedding Showcase

The 2018 Oregon Wedding Showcase is happening next weekend at the Lane Events Center in Eugene, Oregon (i.e., the Lane County Fairgrounds). This is the place to find wedding photographers, wedding dresses, wedding DJs, wedding venues, wedding caterers and all other things wedding related. Don’t miss it!

 

Newlyweds!

Kaley and Derek braved this past Saturday’s rain showers and I’m glad they did. This shot was taken just before the ceremony, right after the First Look.

A Portland wedding

Almost half the weddings I shoot take place in the Portland area. This also includes the vineyards of McMinnville and Newberg, as well as points further east such as Hood River and Bridal Veil Lakes. The image shown here, however, is of a traditional church wedding in the city itself. I like the idea of people blowing soap bubbles as the newlyweds exit the church; the bubbles are much more photogenic than grains of rice. I also like the expressions on the couples’ faces, especially the bride’s; you can tell they’re very excited and happy to be married!

More from Youngberg Hill

Going through some of my weddings at Youngberg Hill, a beautiful vineyard in McMinnville, I realized I should post some more photos. These are from Melissa and Daniel’s wedding. The weather was perfect: lots of textured clouds in the sky at first, followed by warm, golden sunlight towards evening.

Looking for the perfect dress

I get to see a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ moments during a wedding. The bride is almost always surrounded by her bridesmaids and her mother, who dote on her and make sure she’s looking her best. The groom, on the other hand, is often left alone, or with just his best man as they try and decide how long they can wait to put their suits on. I created this juxtaposition from a wedding I shot near Atlanta this past year.

 

The Wedding Dress

A Garter Moment

Removing the garter from the bride is a time honored tradition. A lot of young couples these days, however, are finding ways to insert a little creativity into it. This bride tied hers on in such a way that it was much harder for the groom to remove. All the guests knew about the slipknot; the groom did not:)
