Wedding Candid – portrait, event, and wedding photography in Portland, Oregon

Filed under: Artistic,Events,On Location,Portraits,Weddings — enkophoto @ 7:38 pm

I was just flipping through some wedding photos, and thought I’d share this one. Candid shots–from ANY type of shoot!–always seem to have a way of becoming sentimental favorites of mine, even if they don’t quite make it into the portfolio book.  But hey, sharing beloved shots that aren’t in the portfolio is part of what this blog is for, right?

Our bride Adejoke took a minute to pose with her brother and sister, when the wind picked up and blew her veil over his head… little brother apparently wasn’t too wild about the prospect of playing dress-up! 😉

Kyra becomes a bride – portrait, event, and wedding photography in Portland, Oregon

We recently joined Kyra and Aaron for their wedding at the Arista Ballroom in southeast Portland, and had a great time getting to know the ladies of the wedding party, as they prepared for the ceremony. Kyra had a relaxed group of bridesmaids and friends who kept the mood light while she transformed into a gorgeous bride.

More bridals, and makeup!

Here’s another bridal session that, unfortunately, had us cooped up indoors while it poured rain outside. But, the mood was light in the studio, and Olivia was a quirky and fun bride with a great sense of humor.

This was also a great time to highlight the work of one of our Partners, makeup artist Sabrina Cayne. She’s done amazing commercial and fashion makeup for us before, and she also does truly lovely work for brides and bridal parties! Sabrina provided makeup and hair for Olivia’s shoot, and did a great job of bringing out her natural beauty and creating a regal look. She’s a wonderful artist, and we really can’t say enough about her!

Her brand-new professional web site will be launching soon, but until then, you can reach her through her MySpace page, or we can put you in touch with her. We know you’ll be happy to have her as part of your wedding team!

Bridal Portraits: Jessica

Our session with Jessica was a two-part session: we started by shooting some lovely, softer close-ups in our studio, to capture a bit of elegance. Then, Jessica switched to an edgier up-do, and we moved out to the Broadway bridge, and got some great outdoor shots with the interest of an urban industrial backdrop. Jessica was a sweet and radiant bride, and we had plenty of passing cars honking in approval while we shot on the bridge. Sometimes, you can’t help but love this town!

Another taste of bridal

Here’s a quick taste of our bridal session with Jessica. The weather forecast was dicey that day, but we got a nice surprise of bright sun in the afternoon, so after some in-studio close-ups, we took her out to the Broadway Bridge, and turned more than a few heads along the way!

Our bridal sessions can go in a lot of directions, so if pretty flowers and church windows aren’t quite your thing, we can take you to places that are a little grungier, quirkier, or simply more You. If you’re considering a beautiful bridal session, you can easily add it on to any of our wedding packages.

bridal portrait session: the playful side

The second half of Aimee’s session was originally going to be a Trash The Dress session, where she’d be playing in the river water! But, despite the sunny conditions, the winds were blowing hard and freezing cold that afternoon, so we had to skip out on her diving into the water. But, she did dip her toes in and play around, so we still managed to trash the dress a little!

Bridal portrait session: part Dramatic

We recently worked with Aimee on a bridal session, and here’s a peek at the first part of our session. We warmed up by doing some lovely portraits of her, fully decked out in her dress and veil, and we used a stretch of river in Sellwood and a peek of the afternoon Portland skyline as our backdrop. We timed it just right for getting great natural light that gave a fresh and bright feel to the portrait, but could also give us some shadow for a more dramatic look.
