Hopping back to the damp and dreary winter days of Portland from sunny California was made easier by way of these two, ready to venture out for a fun day of shooting — rain or shine.
I will be covering Jeremy & Kate's wedding in April, they chose to shoot their engagement photos with me as well. I often encourage couples to use the same photographer for both of these events for a few reasons:
1. Many photographers, including myself, offer a discounted rate if you book these events together.
2. Doing an engagement session with your wedding day photographer allows a low-pressure avenue to get comfortable in front of the person who will be following you around on your important day. Also to get a feel for how your photographer operates. We each have our different approaches to shooting; my style is to make you comfortable, but also for me to be as invisible as possible. My primary goal is for you to be present — aware of the environment, the emotions, and the people/person you are with. I want you to remember your day, not your photographer.
Please enjoy a few shots from our venture around Portland together, making a cozy time out of a wet day.
I want to offer a special thanks to Wildwood Bespoke for providing a stunning and warm place to shoot. If you are curious about their space and are looking to rent it for something special (a meeting, retreat, party, music event, photoshoot, video shoots, etc.) travel over to this link and inquire about reservations. If you are in need of a custom suit or are someone who enjoys high fashion and the finer things in life, visit their shop tucked away behind Barista in downtown Portland. They have an amazing collection of items (some local, including my amazing friend Lyle at Handforge) that will make your eyes happy and give you plenty of treasures to put on your Christmas list.
You can thank me later!
