Samantha - Senior Portrait

When my friend Carlene recently contacted me to tell me that her daughter is a senior and the she will be graduating this academic year, I knew what was to follow. A senior portrait session of course! Samantha and I had a blast taking pictures. As you can see, she is clearly very comfortable in front of a camera. Have a great rest of the school year Samantha! And anyone who is looking to have a senior portrait taken -- give me a call. :)

Ashley & Tim - September 2, 2007

I have quite literally been waiting all year for Ashley and Tim's wedding. We originally received a call from Ashley and she stated that she was living in California at the time and was planning her wedding from afar. She asked her brother Chris to meet with various vendors and to assist her in the decision making process. Thanks again Chris for putting in the good word. :)

No words can aptly describe Ashley and Tim's incredible wedding. As a young girl, Ashley dreamed of getting married at her parents' house. On 9/2/07, all of her dreams came true. While discussing the details of their wedding, Ashley asked if we knew of a place that they could rent a tandem bike as they wanted to ride off into the evening after the reception. Well, look no further. Holly and I have a red tandem bike that we ride together all the time. It was my gift to Holly for our 1st anniversary and it only seemed fitting to have Ashley and Tim use it in their wedding. We had one request though. We told Ashley and Tim that we HAD to take pictures of them on the bike. Here are just some of the amazing moments that occurred throughout the day -- the dancing, the singing (you two have great voices), the most amazing cake, an INCREDIBLE game of limbo, the toasts, the beautiful ceremony, and the tremendous love that you have for each other.... Enjoy!

Mary & Brian - 8/18/07

What is that saying... Something like, "Life is a stage?" Well that was the theme for Mary and Brian's wedding -- a sort of theatrical/performance experience where each member of the wedding party had a specific character to play. The screenplay was absolutely marvelous and you can only guess the ending... That's right! It is a love story where Mary and Brian fall helplessly in love and get married. What an absolutely unique and phenomenal experience. Thank you so much!!

Kari and Mike are getting married on 10/20/07. They are friends of Melody and Mason (whose wedding we photographed on 4/28/07). In fact, Melody and Mason will be the DJ at Kari and Mike's wedding. Needless to say, we are very much looking forward to Kari and Mike's wedding. We have been in touch with Kari and Mike throughout the planning process and things are really coming along. Here are a few of our favorites from their recent engagement session. Mike - I am really looking forward to the BBQ ribs at the reception dinner. Can't wait!

Erica & Roland - 8/11/07

We have many updates to post to the blog, the first of which is an update from Erica & Roland's wedding on 8/11/07. The day began with the women getting their hair and make-up done at Richard Herrera's in downtown Portland. Then we were off to the Riverplace Hotel for getting ready photos and the first moment between the bride and groom. Then we headed to the Chinese Gardens for the ceremony, reception, and lots and lots of picture taking! Check out the proofs section of our website -- Erica & Roland's wedding photos are live!
