Pumpkins and Falling Leaves – portrait and artistic photography in Portland, OR

We got together with Alyson and Jeff on a chilly fall day, to snag some casual engagement photos! They took advantage of our Try Us On special by scheduling their engagement shoot with us, and because they also booked us for their wedding, they got to keep the engagement photos at no charge. (Hint: you can still get in on this special, just by mentioning that you saw it on our blog! Be sure to contact us to book an engagement portrait session, before our wedding calendar fills up.)

The weather at the park was beautiful, and there was plenty of fall color to play with… and we even had pumpkins on hand to pose with! They started the session trying to look more sedate and composed for the photos, but Jeff–or as Alyson likes to call him, “El Jefe”–is apparently pretty notorious for not keeping a straight face in photos. But, we LOVE it when our portrait clients loosen up and clown around during a session, so we captured some parent-pleasing photos, and the spontaneous shots that showed them as the clever, funny, and utterly non-serious people they are when they’re together. 😉

We’re really jazzed to be the photographers shooting Alyson and Jeff’s wedding this coming Fall. It’s shaping up to be a blast, and we’re sure it’ll be anything but ordinary… just how we like it.

Engagement Special: Try us on! – portrait and wedding photography in Portland, Oregon

It’s been a busy week, especially now that Ben’s down with a cold, but we’re just popping in to alert our friends in the blogosphere about our new Try Us On special for engagements. We know that booking your photographer often turns out to be one of the toughest choices you’ll make when you’re planning your wedding, so we’re hoping to make that choice a little easier for you.

All you need to do is:

Book an engagement session with us, between now and November 30th. We’ll do your portrait session (sessions start at just $199), you’ll get your photos, and you’ll get the chance to try us on, and see if we’re a good fit for you.

Then, when you book your wedding with us, we’ll discount the price of your engagement session from your wedding package. Then, you’ll have an awesome wedding photographer booked, and you’ll be getting engagement photos you love for FREE. Pretty excellent deal, right?

We have dates available for portrait sessions between now and the end of November, so get in touch with us, and we can fill you in on all the details.

Monday (?) Snapshot

Okay, so it’s actually Tuesday, but we had a very full Monday… forgive us the slight interruption.

For Oregon people who are primed for much rainier, gloomier weather, last week’s heat was approaching unbearable! But, when you don’t see blue skies very often, it’s hard to resist them even on melty-hot days. If you’re lucky, maybe you can find a shady Portland park, hop on the swings, and create your own breeze. 😉

Family portrait in the park

Here’s a peek at our session with Aundria and Sequoia. We met with them on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon, at a Southeast Portland park, and they took some quick poses together, including a few shots with Sequoia dressed in her fairy dance recital costume. It was a quirky, smirky, and adorable shoot! 🙂

Special Places

Carla and Travis chose to have their wedding in a place that was familiar and of special significance to them: both the church and the reception hall were on the campus where they first met. The grounds were full of sloping hills and gorgeous greenery, and made for some lovely portraits, both artistically and sentimentally speaking! These are just two of the bride and groom shots we did with them.

Wedding Portraiture

As much as we love and enjoy the photojournalistic aspect of shooting weddings, it’s rare to find a wedding that doesn’t call for at least a few wedding portraits. Even if you’re more excited about spontaneous shots than posed portraits, you can be pretty certain that someone in your family will enjoy having portraits to keep.

Here’s a shot from this past summer, where we used our on-location professional lighting kit. We can bring our lighting kit for longer wedding bookings that have more time set aside for posed portraits, and it gives us endless flexibility for locations and lighting styles.  A few extra minutes of setup can make a world of difference, and the results are well worth the extra time.

Senior Portraits with a Friend

Sarah and Emily are two friends who decided to do their senior portrait session together. It was a spontaneous session that had us exploring locations near the waterfront and in downtown, and we got some great shots of them, both individually and together. These are just a few quick ones that we liked from the bunch!

Booking your senior portraits with a friend is a fun way to do a session, and you can also get a sweet discount on each of your packages! We’re always happy to give you an estimate, if you have any special requests.

Sarah and Emily are also working with us as senior reps. Many seniors in the Class of 2009 are already beginning to book their senior portraits, but it’s not too late for you to work with us as one of our Senior Reps! Get more information, and get in touch with us to sign up!

A Day in the Sun

While we were in Eugene shooting this year’s Eugene Marathon, we also caught up with this young couple, for an engagement shoot. This was actually our second attempt for their engagement photos; they’d planned on coming up to Portland on the date we’d originally picked for their session, but the Oregon weather was being characteristically unpredictable that day, so we decided to give it another go on a day with a friendlier sky.

We spent the afternoon wandering around Hendrick’s Park with them, and enjoying the gorgeous weather and the flowers coming into bloom. They were a little camera-shy at first, but once we started finding cool spots and sharing thoughts with them, they got into it and had fun being cute (and occasionally silly) for the camera.

They’re a really cute couple, and we had fun coming up with different ideas for their shots. We’re definitely looking forward to working with them again on the day of their wedding!
