Have you wondered why photo booths have become all of the rage at weddings lately? Here are a few of the many reason’s why it’s a good move to add one to your party entertainment for your wedding day…

  1. RIDICULOUS AMOUNTS OF FUN – Your guests will surely be entertained at your wedding with a photo booth! At every event we do and the thousands of photographs taken you always see smiles, creativity and often some shenanigans ensue in every capture. It doesn’t take long for the line to form and everyone is wanting to get into the next photo. Not every one will cut a rug on the dance floor, but most everyone will pose for a silly photo booth pic with their BFF or their favorite Aunt at the wedding.
  2. GOOD CLEAN FUN FOR ALL AGES – From infants to grandparents, at all of our events, everyone has a great time! We also love being able to send home all of the kids that use our booth their very own print for their wall at home and one for their parents for the fridge.
  3. A GREAT TIME FILLER – Need to keep people occupied while you and the bridal party are taking photos with the professional photographer? Having a photo booth ready to keep everyone busy means they won’t be standing around wondering how much longer until the party gets started…it’s already begun and you haven’t even been announced by the DJ yet!

Amy and Tyler’s wedding flowers didn’t arrive in time for the wedding because of a hurricane in Texas last year, but that didn’t stop them from having the best wedding possible!

Even without their chosen wedding flowers, Amy and Tyler still managed to have a wedding that hit all the right notes in Astoria, Oregon at The Loft at the Red Building!

As a Portland wedding photographer I’ve seen it all at weddings! Couples who are calm and almost zen-like, stressed, and everything in between. I’ve curated a list of tips and things to keep in mind to help you keep it all in check and be sure you have the best wedding day possible without letting petty things bother you.

Everyone dreams of a wedding day with no hiccups, setbacks or stress. Which is why the reality can sometimes be a let down. But don’t despair! With my years of experience shooting weddings, I know my way around stressful days. So repeat after me: Calm, serene, peaceful…calm, serene, peaceful…

Sometimes at the Pacific Northwest weddings it rains (shocker!!) when we really want the sun. Sometimes the florist brings the wrong color flowers. And sometimes your flower girl just doesn’t want to be sweet and instead wants to test out her lungs in the form of an epic tantrum.

Sweltering heat and power outages were in the cards for Meghan and Ryan’s wedding at The Ohana Barn in Corvallis Oregon. This didn’t stop them, not even for a moment, from smiling and having an amazing time at their wedding. They knew what they were there for…to celebrate their love and commitment to each other in marriage.

Meghan and Ryan embraced sweltering heat and power outages at their Ohana Barn wedding in Corvallis, Oregon. But it didn’t phase them! They knew exactly what their day was about: love, commitment, and marriage.

So, what are you supposed to do?

Here are my best tips:

  • Keep it in Perspective! The flower girl screaming is going to make a hilarious story when she’s 17 and trying to be the coolest kid ever. And, really, orange flowers instead of yellow won’t ruin your entire day. You’re there to get married, to have a great party, and commit to your best friend. Remember to take a deep breath and focus on the actual priorities of the day.
  • Have A Plan! Make sure you know who’s supposed to where and when. Oh! And make sure they know where they’re supposed to be and when. It’s easier to redirect one person than it is to try and herd a whole group! Better yet, make sure your photographer has worked a solid plan out for you, knows the schedule, and is able to help you stick to it.
  • Keep Calm and…Delegate! Don’t try to do it all. You and your love are beautifully dressed and ready to have that calm, serene, and peaceful day we just discussed. In the words of Taylor Swift: shake it off…and delegate! Your wedding party is there to support you in your quest to have the best wedding day ever, use that support and love.
Mallori and Tyler had a very windy and foggy wedding on the beach in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. They didn’t get to choose the weather, but they still chose to embrace it and make the best of the situation. I love the clean look and feel of wedding photos on the beach when it’s completely socked in with fog and clouds.

Mallori and Tyler had a very windy and foggy wedding on the beach in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. It wasn’t exactly the ideal condition but the result was beautiful soft skies and an album filled with moments that highlighted their emotion and love.

Cannon Beach Photographer – Jaime Kae Hazen’s Rock the Dress Photo Shoot

When Chandra approached me about doing a beach photo shoot with a beautiful flowing dress to celebrate her birthday I was totally stoked! It’s refreshing to see someone excited to celebrate something all their own. All to often women hide behind the camera, avoid spending money on themselves, and don’t enjoy looking at their photos without picking everything apart. Don’t think for a moment that being confident and excited to be who you are is the same as being vain. It’s so not the same!

When Chandra came in to view her images yesterday she was so nervous and afraid of how she’d look in her images, and wouldn’t you know it she was absolutely thrilled with how they came out!

This is the perfect kind of session you can incorporate for high school senior girls, bridal sessions after the wedding, glamour makeovers or just for you anytime you like!

Check out this beautiful wall arrangement from Chandra’s session that can be ordered in canvas, metal or wood prints. Worried about what people might think about you putting art of yourself on the wall? Why??? That says more about them and their insecurities than it does about you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Choose to be happy and confident, that’s what matters!

Bride and groom at their destination wedding on the Oregon Coast beach

With their seven children combined, the officiant and myself as a witness Regan and Kelly were married on the Oregon Coast not too far from Astoria, Oregon. The weather this year has been much cooler and wetter than usual and made it a challenge to get many photos of them on the beach before their ceremony. By ceremony time the sun was out and we were able to get some gorgeous photos of them on the beach together after they said their “I do’s”.

Portland Photo Booth Rental

A photo can capture a moment in time that passes all too quickly and can never be replicated. As a photographer I love being able to capture the beautiful portrait of a bride and groom, or a high school senior that’s off to college in the fall, but with a photo booth we can capture a whole different kind of photo to cherish. A photo booth photo can bring back memories of fun, camaraderie, and silliness at any hosted party event. Guests love to bust out their paparazzi style and jump into our photo booth at all kinds of events taking home the best kind of party favor!

Our Portland photo booth rental is great for:

  • Weddings
  • Bridal Showers
  • Birthdays
  • Anniversary Parties
  • Corporate Events
  • Holiday Parties
  • and much more!

Seaside Oregon Photographer

Sometimes you just gotta cut loose and have some fun at a wedding! I photographed these guys at what was supposed to be a beach wedding in Seaside, but ended up getting rained out. Fortunately, we were able to photograph all of their photos indoors at the Best Western Ocean View in Seaside where they held their reception. I love being able to capture fun and happy moments in between the formal portraits. It’s a good thing they could get their wiggles out before the ceremony!

Cannon Beach is one of the most photographed beaches on the Oregon Coast which is no surprise due to it’s natural Oregon Coast beauty. This small cottage town is recognized by its well-known landmark, the huge iconic monolith Haystack Rock. This igneous rock has an elevation of 235 feet and is protected as a marine sanctuary, Oregon Islands National Wildlife Refuge. With all of this natural beauty it is probably the best location for engagement photos in all of Oregon!

Get in touch with me and I’ll help you plan the perfect engagement session in Cannon Beach, Oregon.

“April showers bring May flowers”, they say. In Oregon sometimes it’s more like “May showers bring June flowers” like with Shaanti and Eire’s wedding at The Foundry at Oswego Pointe in Lake Oswego, Oregon last May. Despite the rain they had a beautiful wedding with lots of color, and the MOST tasty wedding food I’ve ever had! They served brunch for dinner by Pearl Catering, and it was delicious! They even had an crêpe making action station and homemade donuts. Yumm! When you photographing weddings as a career you eat a lot of wedding food. Let me tell you I’ve had some not so great and some really, really great wedding food, and this was one of my all time favorites! When we sit down to eat (if we even get a chance too!) good food can give us photographers the boost we need to get back to capturing our couple’s day. I think it’s safe to say we photographers adore our clients who serve quality and delightful food at their wedding!

Rain didn’t stop us from heading over to nearby Foothills Park for Shaanti and Eire’s first look and fun bridal party portraits. There is a really neat white awning over a platform that overlooks the Willamette River at the park. It was the perfect place to allow us to stay dry and still be able to photograph them and their bridal party outdoors. Perfect!

Who’s ready for spring!?!? All this snow and ice this winter is making me long for the warmer days of spring! This is a fun capture from an extended family portrait session in Rockaway Beach, Oregon. They thought it would be a wonderful time to capture their family when they all gathered from across the country on their annual Spring Break family reunion vacation to Rockaway Beach. The whole family pulled together shades of blue and neutrals to coordinate their wardrobe rather than matching each other. I love when my clients follow this advice! I also love being able to capture true personalities of my clients by allowing them to interact with one another in a natural way. The beach is the perfect place for a family to have a good time together and capture the fun being had by all. You can plan a blanket picnic, bonfire, toss a football or frisbee, or fly a kite during your portrait session. The possibilities are endless! Set the stage for fun beach activities and I’ll handle the rest!

Twinkle lights are a fantastic addition to any wedding and us photographers love it when we get them in between our lens and our subject. This wedding in Vernonia, Oregon was on a beautiful private residence full of lush greenery and tall trees. The twinkle lights were like the icing on the cake to an already perfect setting and kept the party illuminated throughout the night for their reception.

Fog can be a beautiful thing. Typically when you think of Cannon Beach you imagine the picturesque and massive Haystack Rock in the background. The weather had different plans for this couple on their wedding day! The fog gave their portraits a clean softness that couldn’t be captured without it.

The Oregon Coast weather can be so unpredictable. Choosing a photographer to photograph your Oregon Coast wedding who knows how to handle a multitude of lighting situations is critical to the outcome of your wedding photos. On the Oregon Coast there are often zero trees to hide under in the shade where the light can be softer and easier to photograph portraits. This wedding wedding took place in Newport at South Beach State Park on a bright and beautiful sunny day. Knowing how to position the bride and groom in flattering light was key to getting these beautiful photographs of them in bright midday sun.

Jaime is an Oregon Coast Photographer who loves to photograph beach weddings along the coast and travels nationwide as well.


This stunning couple was recently married at Star Attractions and Events in Sweet Home, Oregon and I had the absolute pleasure of photographing it. I love it when a bride has a train on her dress she can twirl and swing as she’s dancing with her groom. The field with tall weeds on the venue’s property provided the perfect framing to capture this photograph.

I am based in the Astoria Oregon area and I travel all over to photograph weddings for my clients, just like this sweet couple. Get in touch with me to see if I am available to photograph your wedding – Jaime Kae Hazen – Astoria Wedding Photographer.
