Beautiful Traditional Indian Wedding Ceremony in Portland | Photographers of Portland

Indian weddings are full of so many details and beautiful colors, and you want to make sure to capture every one! This award-winning moment tells so much as the bride performs her puja (prayers) before meeting the groom for the wedding ceremony.

Awesome Succulent Bouquets: Langdon Farms Wedding | Photographers of Portland

Wedding days are full of fluff, tulle, and pretty smelling flowers, but what do you do when you’re allergic to flowers and still want to carry a bouquet down the aisle and decorate your event space? Well, the bride at this Langdon Farms Wedding had an entire bouquet of succulents. Not only did it solve the issue of a possible sneezing attack mid “I do’s,” but it just all around looked awesome! Definitely something to consider if you also have an allergy, sensitivity, or just want to do something cool and different.

Portland Headshots with Personality | Photographers of Portland

Liz didn’t want the traditional style headshots for her new business venture (the exact nature of the venture is a secret for now!). We sat down and discussed the vision she had for her business and I designed a shoot that would produce images to come in line with that vision. She wanted something that reflected both her relational personality as well as her urban, modern style. You can check out more from Catalina Jean Photography by clicking here.

Kids and Dogs, Portland Lifestyle Family Photography | Photographers of Portland

I love nothing more than relaxing at home and taking photographs as life unfolds. As a Portland lifestyle family photographer I feel a real connection to photographs that show life as it really is. I want you to look back at your photos years from now and remember how life actually was, not just see a photo that reminds you what everyone looked like. If you are looking for family photos that make you feel and tell your story book your session with Lacey Monroe Photography.

Its all in the details | Photographers of Portland

I love photographing weddings. One of my favorite things to photograph at weddings are the getting ready shots. I love the excited and nerves expressions on everyone’s face. No one is rushing and everyone is happy its the perfect time to get all the little detailed shots. This wedding was at the Oregon Golf Club in West Linn, Oregon. They have an amazing bridal suite for there brides to get ready in.

Fall Anniversary Shoot, Soaking in Sun and Color | Photographers of Portland What fantastic weather Portland had this past weekend!  Monica and John came up from San Francisco to visit for their one year anniversary, and decided to celebrate with a photo shoot.  We soaked in the sun and enjoyed the fall foliage, while they tossed leaves and played around to capture the natural, happy, and candid photography style we love.

Portland Actor Headshots | Photographers of Portland

I was contacted recently by local Portland theater actress Annie Ganousis for casting headshots–- she saw my photography and thought that I would capture her personality perfectly! She asked for two photos: one to capture her beautiful smile, and the other with a serious, more intense look. Check out more of Studio Varnika’s Portraits & Headshots, which are a bit different from my artistic wedding photojournalism!

Sunny Fall Engagement Session | Photographers of Portland October is a weird month as far as Portland weather goes, you never really know what to expect and each day can be different from the last. That’s why it was surprising when we had a sunny 75 degree day in October for Jolenta and Brad’s East Bank Esplanade engagement session. They travelled all the way from New York expecting to wear sweaters and get some true “Oregon Fall” photos and instead we got beautiful light, warm weather, and a handsome dog in a bow tie….I’d say that’s a day full of winning!

Lifestyle Newborn Photography   Welcome Little Charlie! | Photographers of Portland

Cayla and Nick welcomed little baby Charlie over the summer and they opted for a lifestyle newborn session. Lifestyle photography sessions are focused on capturing the emotion and real connections between couples and their families. They also usually take place at a location that is special to the people involved. This leads to creating something beyond the normal portrait; something that truly captures the story of the most special times in one’s life. Check out more storytelling images over at Catalina Jean Photography’s blog.

Be Your Own Superhero This Halloween! | Photographers of Portland

What will you be this year? More importantly – what will you do, and how will you remember it?

This year I’ve heard parents stressing over how they are ever going to come up with the costume their child has asked for, or expressing relief that their child changed his mind from wanting to be a smoothie machine to something simpler like a carrot, or a princess… (true story)

With all that energy and creativity going into Halloween, why not make the very most of it with amazing pictures of your children really getting into character!

PS: if you want to do something fun with your kids, visit our trick-or-treat photo booth from 3-8pm Halloween!
