I love getting to photograph super laid back couples like Andrea and Joshua. Then throw in an adorable ball of energy toddler and you’ve got the makings for a perfect photo shoot! Andrea and Joshua will be getting married this Sunday! Portland Engagement Photographers!
Why only have your photo taken when you get married and when you have children? I think scheduling an Anniversary Session is a great way to spend your special day loving on each other and commemorating your milestones along the way! Grace & Ginmann travelled all the way from Chicago for their Anniversary Session and we had an amazing time exploring on of my favorite Portland locations.
Caitlin + Robbie’s wedding included everything that Portlanders love: great food, micro brews, and a ceremony site with sweeping views of downtown PDX. We had a blast adventuring around the area and using urban elements as backdrops for portraits. Portland is full of wonderful colored walls! This one matched their outfit colors perfectly.

Are you planning any fun family get-togethers for the holiday season? When was the last time you all had a big family portrait? Have you started thinking about what to gift those family members who already have everything? Stop by the Emily Hall Photography blog for some great examples of extended family photo sessions. It’s a great activity for while the whole family is in town and it may even help you check a few things off of your Christmas list when shopping time comes around!
Now is the ideal time of year to get your senior portraits scheduled before the weather turns sour. Senior portraits can be scheduled with your friends for a fun themed shoot like this one or on your own.

I schedule senior portrait sessions on the Oregon Coast (in my hood), and travel often to the Portland metro, Salem, and Eugene areas for my clients.
Portland, Oregon sure has some amazing spots for engagement photos. The Eastbank Esplanade is one of my favorite spots to shoot especially on these beautiful summer nights we have had the past couple of months.

For the Bride’s entrance at the Gerding Theater at the Armory, Eimee entered from above, for all the guests to see, before meeting with her parents at the base of the steps. Set to lovely music, it was a beautiful idea, and a great use of the theater’s grand staircase.
When you look at pictures of your family, what do you see? Do you see your kids playing and being themselves? Do you see your family the way you see it every day? Or do you see posed images that show little more than the physical attributes of each person? What is valuable to you, in the end? What conversations do you want to have with your kiddos when they bring home their collage sweetheart and you are looking back at old photos through new eyes?
This McMenamins Wedding included: a super-sweet and HILARIOUS couple, loads of friends & family, home brewed beer wedding favors – what more could you ask for?Emily Hall Photography is now booking 2016 wedding dates! Call me! :)
Beautiful fog rolled in creating a misty background for Lita + Devin’s Oregon coast wedding. While sunny days are beautiful in their own right there is something about fog that brings a pensive, emotional feeling to photos. You can check out more about Portland Wedding Photographer Catalina Jean over on her website.
Weddings on the Oregon Coast are always a gamble with the weather. On Kelsey and Garrett’s wedding day in Yachats, Oregon at Yachts Inn it was gray and gloomy. This shot was taken near sunset with thick foggy clouds in the sky. We made the best out of a less than perfect weather situation by lighting just the bride and groom. The dark clouds give a stormy and surreal look to the sky and we were able to add a pop of color and depth you can’t get otherwise on a gloomy and gray day on the Oregon Coast.

Alison and Evan’s wedding at The Green Villa Barn was a perfect reflection of the two of them: carefree, happy and full of life!
The home is the unmentioned, yet ever present, member of the family. It’s where our memories are made. It is a witness to the good times and the bad. It’s where we grow. It’s where we love. It’s where we can truly be ourselves. When I learned that this family of 6 was packing up and selling their home I jumped at the opportunity to document their last day there. The boxes mostly packed. The rooms empty. Just them and their home. One last time. Saying goodbye.

Tickles always get the laughs out. I had the pleasure of doing a family shoot before this family added a beautiful baby girl. They wanted to capture life before it all changes again. More from this shoot and their new addition will be on Jen Gardner Photography’s blog soon.
Please contact Jen Gardner if you are interested in a lifestyle family shoot.

Happy Thursday, from my family to yours. <3 Caitlin Kristine Photo
That moment you sit down after just your wedding ceremony, get off your feet, and say…”We did it! We’re married!” That is this moment captured in time. The small, brief moments in between the larger events of your day are just a priceless as your first kiss at the altar.
