Encore Events’ Rockstar Swag

Anyone who knows Cindy with Encore Events knows that she is one of the most creative and talented wedding coordinators in Portland.  I have personally witnessed her magic with transforming her couple’s wedding day vision into a memorable celebration that far exceeds her clients’ expectations.  Ask any of her couples.  Cindy receives rave reviews.

Toward the end of last year, Cindy approached me about a really neat concept.  She wanted to select a handful of wedding professionals to each donate a personalized gift to be placed into a box to be hand delivered to a number of wedding venues in town.  The intention was to gift a handful of venue contacts with individualized gifts from a number of wedding professionals as a way of thanking them for their business and to celebrate the holiday season.

Each beautifully crafted box contained a note which read:

As a celebrated member of Portland’s fabulous wedding community, please enjoy this luxurious box of swag meant for a true industry rockstar.  Let it be a reminder of how fortunate we are to have such incredibly talented professionals in our area.  Each company listed below exemplifies dedication and excellence in the products and services they offer.

I wish you a wonderful holiday season and hope your 2014 is blessed beyond compare!

Cindy hand delivered each of these boxes to a number of venues in town and we wanted to share this fun way that wedding vendors have worked together to provide an exceptional level of service to not only their individual clients but to the vendors they work with as well.

A special thanks to all the vendors who participated in Cindy’s Encore Events’ Rockstar Swag.

Baby Siena

We have the opportunity to photograph a number of newborns in our portrait studio in SE Portland but every once-in-awhile we have the opportunity to use a family’s home as the backdrop.  What I love most about newborn sessions at home is the real personal touch that is given to each session.

Think about the history of your home and how things change over the years.  Wouldn’t it be neat to have photos captured in your home to really showcase your life at this present time?

Congratulations to Sarah & Todd on the arrival of their beautiful daughter Siena.  It has been an honor documenting your wedding day, your recent maternity session, and now the latest addition to your new family.  I even had the opportunity to capture some really cute “We are Expecting” photos before nearly anyone knew about the pregnancy.  Thank you so much for choosing us to capture these incredible milestones in your lives.

Thank you Paul for always doing such an amazing job capturing the big moments in our life. We love having you there and the pictures to look at after!

Radiant Orchid Stylized Photo Shoot

We are extremely excited to see our work from a stylized photo shoot featured on Style Unveiled today.  Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to celebrate Radiant Orchid (Pantone Color of the Year for 2014).

Radiant Orchid possesses rosy undertones that radiate on the skin.  The color represents creativity, uniqueness, and innovation.  When paired with shades of lavender, purples, and pinks, the hue takes on a seductive quality.  All of these features make Radiant Orchid the perfect color inspiration for weddings.

These photos are beautiful Paul. We would love to feature them on our Facebook and Pinterest page. Is there any way we can get some that are logoed??

Baby Kainoa

It is always an honor to photograph a couple’s newborn child.  It is especially exciting when it is someone you already know.

Brett, owner of Encore Mobile DJ’s, and Charlotte, the Catering Sales Manager at The Nines Hotel, welcomed their newborn son Kainoa into the world on October 29, 2013.  We photographed baby Kainoa within days of his arrival.  We are catching up with our blogging and wanted to share this truly sweet newborn session.  So sorry for the delay!

Here are some of our favorite images from Kainoa’s newborn session at our photography studio:

Family Portraits at Home

Family portraits at home are so fun to capture.  I love including elements like the living room, the front of the house, or a child’s bedroom into the photographs.  It is a more personal way of documenting a family.

Toya & Chris welcomed their second child into the family and wanted to capture this very special time in their lives.  Lola was beyond excited being the big sister in the family and wanted to show me how she holds her little brother.  She did such a great job!

Here are some of my favorites from this recent family portrait session:

Family Portraits Outdoors

I received a really nice call from Judy recently.  She called to inform me that her two daughters and their families were coming into town to visit and she wanted to capture some portraits with everyone together.  She was lamenting about how rare it is to have everyone together.  But, everyone’s schedule aligned and it was the perfect time to capture everyone together.  Judy mentioned that it had been about 10 years since they were all together and had their photo captured.

We travel all throughout the Northwest capturing family portraits.  There is something far more personal and intimate having your portrait captured at home or at your favorite outdoor location as opposed to going to the mall or some big box retail store.  Make the investment and have a professional photographer capture your family portrait.  When you look back at the documentation of your family’s history over the years, you will be so glad you did.

Contact us today to schedule a portrait session in the convenience of your home or at a location of your choice – paul@paulrichstudio.com
