I remember meeting with Lauren & Michael to discuss the details of their wedding day and being really impressed with the plans and decisions they had made for their guests. The couple had recently moved to Portland from Wisconsin and wanted to treat their friends and family to all that Portland and the Pacific Northwest has to offer.
They chose a wonderful location for their wedding celebration – the rooftop terrace at the RiverPlace Hotel in downtown Portland. The wedding ceremony had the most spectacular view overlooking the Willamette River. It was also where guests enjoyed cocktail hour.
Everyone headed downstairs for the reception where the couple and their wedding party were officially announced into the room. The dance floor remained very active throughout the evening as guests enjoyed a very memorable evening. Lauren and Michael incorporated some of their engagement photos into the reception area with many additional personal touches throughout.
After delivering Lauren and Michael their wedding photos, we had a chance to meet to review the work and select their favorite image for a beautiful canvas print that now hangs in their home. Lauren was kind enough to leave us this review after working with us:
First word of advice when planning a wedding: BOOK PAUL RICH. We had met with Paul in his studio and immediately felt at ease. He had written out a tentative timeline and we used this for our wedding planning! We had met with other photographers and immediately knew we would book Paul. He was professional, fun, and his work was exceptional. We did our engagement photos with him and he helped us get comfortable in front of the camera. We were very excited to have him do our wedding photos. He showed up to the wedding on time and made sure our day went smoothly. I cannot thank him enough for getting our first look and all of our family photos before the ceremony so we could enjoy our cocktail hour! He captured AMAZING photos and we went to his studio to view our photos for our wedding album and ordered a canvas. We consider him a friend after he put so much work and time into our wedding. Thank you Paul!
