Pumpkin Ridge Bridal Open House

The Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club held their Annual Bridal Open House this past weekend and many vendors were present for the occasion.  From The Bridal Loft, Paul from Paul Rich Studio, Andrea from August Veils, Alesia from Alesia Zorn Calligraphy, and members of the Event Cosmetics team all showcased their services.  It was a wonderful event with many brides in attendance.

Additional vendors who showcased at the event were:

Mobile Music Entertainment

Evergreen Wedding & Events Décor, LLC

and many, many more…

If you happened to miss this Open House, do not worry.  Many members from The Bridal Loft will be in attendance at the upcoming Bravo Wedding Affair on February 20th.  So make sure to mark your calendars!  We will be handing out our brand new brochures at the event.

Baby Peter’s 1 Year Session

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun we had during Peter’s most recent photo session.  We had the opportunity to document him at 6 weeks, 6 months, and most recently at 12 months.  He has grown so much in the last year and he has taken on an incredible fascination with the world around him.  He darts across the floor on his hands and knees with lightning speed and every so often builds up enough courage to walk a few steps at a time.  You can see by the look on his face that he is ready to explore the world on his feet.  In fact, during the photo session, Peter stood up on his own, threw his arms up into the air, and walked across the living room all on his own.  His face lit up with excitement as he moved himself across the room.  Mom and dad said it was the first time he had walked that sort of distance.  What a special treat to be there and document the momentous occasion.

As I wrapped up the photo session, Peter crawled over to me and gave me a hug.  He rested his head on my shoulder and melted my heart.  Thanks so much for the fun photo session!

Destination Wedding Photography

Nothing excites me more than an assignment to go photograph a destination wedding.  Over the last few years, we have had the opportunity to photograph in such places as Seattle, New York, Boston, Martha’s Vineyard, St Lucia, and Kauai.  And with a recent assignment in Oahu, we felt it was time to update the destinations section to our website.  We are entering into the peak booking season for 2011/2012, so if you are planning a wedding, make sure to give us a call.  We have a passport and love to travel.

Jennifer & KC | Mt Hood Engagement Session

We are incredibly honored and excited to have the opportunity to photograph Jennifer & KC’s wedding this summer.  The couple lives in Chefornak, Alaska, an area that is approximately 500 miles west of Anchorage and accessible only by plane.  The village boasts a total population of less than 500 people and contains not a single automobile.  In fact, there aren’t even any roads!  Snow mobiles, ATVs, and boats are the primary method of transportation.  So, how does a couple who lives so far away find us?  The internet of course.  In fact, our wedding consultation occurred over Skype just a few weeks ago.  Due to the limited number of flights going out of Chefornak, Alaska and my schedule of flying to Boston in late December, we wanted a quick and easy solution for discussing wedding plans.  So, we used Skype to finalize the details and scheduled an engagement session for the very last day of 2010 while the couple was still visiting Portland.

Given the uniqueness of where Jennifer & KC live, I really wanted to go somewhere different for their engagement session.  Mt Hood and Timberline Lodge were the perfect choice.  We packed into the truck and headed up to the mountain.  I couldn’t imagine a better place to be on the final day of the year and sharing it with Jennifer & KC was the absolute best.  Thanks so much for sharing all of your stories and I can’t wait to see the two of you again this summer down here in the lower 48.
