Baby Gracie | 6 Months

We had the pleasure of photographing Michelle & Tim’s wedding at The Governor Hotel back in 2009.  It was such a fun wedding and I remember taking a photo of Michelle putting on a Boston Red Sox garter.  That is something the west coast will never understand — the true fanaticism of sports fans.  In fact, if I recall, the Red Sox and the Yankees were playing each other that day and Tim had the game on in the background while he was getting ready.  Anyway, I am sure that Baby Gracie is a huge Sox fan too!

Michelle and Tim were in town visiting family at the same time that Gracie was turning 6 months.  It was the perfect time to connect for a photo session.

So great to see you Michelle and Tim and so neat to finally meet your baby daughter.  She is beyond cute!

Nicole & Gabe | May 26, 2012

Nicole & Gabe were married on May 26, 2012 at Bridal Veil Lakes.  The property is well known for its stunning views and incredible sunsets.  It is a quintessential Pacific Northwest location.

During this time of year, as many of you know, the weather can change 5 or 6 times on any given day.  It can be sunny, rainy, sunny, hail, sunny, and then rain all in one day.  Trying to dress for this type of weather is a challenge and even more so when planning for a wedding.  Well, even though the forecast was for partly cloudy with a 70% chance of thundershowers (something that rarely actually happens), the sun came out in full force.  It was truly the perfect temperature and exactly what we wanted to see.

Following the ceremony, guests walked around the perimeter of the lake over to the reception area where Boka Marimba was playing high-energy African style Marimba.  When listening to their music, it is impossible to not want to dance.  Guests gathered around and immediately began dancing.  It was the perfect way to kick off the celebrations.  Additional music was played throughout the night by The Pagan Jug Band.

Catering was provided by Nicholas Restaurant, serving Lebanese & Middle Eastern cuisine.  Following dinner, guests gathered around the fire to make individual S’mores.  It was a smashing hit and I caught many guests going back for more!

Congratulations to Nicole & Gabe on their marriage and on completing medical school!  Now they are off to their residencies.

[…] The gesture made for a nice personalized touch to the ceremony, symbolizing the coming together of two families.  Nicole & Gabe were married at the beautiful Bridal Veil Lakes in Corbett, OR.  Although we photograph at this location many times each year, every wedding has its own unique personality and style.  The location is a photographer’s dream with great backdrops and settings throughout the property.  It provides a wonderful Northwest experience for guests in a more casual relaxed setting.  See more highlights from this wedding at the Paul Rich Studio Blog.

Diana & Bryan | Maternity Session

I absolutely love re-connecting with couples over the years.  Diana & Bryan were married at the Abernethy Center back in 2010 and we had the pleasure of photographing their wedding.  We have seen them on a number of occasions since then, but most recently for their maternity session!  Diana & Bryan are less than 4 weeks away from welcoming their newborn daughter.  I am anxiously waiting by my phone and cannot wait for their newborn session.  More photos coming VERY soon!

Baby Rooney

Baby Rooney was born on May 18, 2012 at 3:04pm.  She was 8 lbs. and 20.5 inches long at birth.  Within days of her arrival, she came by the studio for her first official portrait session.  Rooney did such an excellent job napping through most of the session and allowing us to pose her in many different ways.  Being a huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan, she also made sure to show off her “terrible towel.”

We cannot wait to see Baby Rooney next year for her 1 year session.
