Recently I was asked to take some corporate headshots for a company in California. While taking those pictures I was asked to take some high school senior photos. Which got me very excited, just because in Portland I often times need to recycle the locations I shoot at.
Me likey new places!
This kid though looks a lot older then I looked at his age. I still get carded when going to R rated movies.

It was an amazing evening when Erik and Rachel hosted their wedding at the Leftbank Annex located in Portland, near the Rose Garden. This was the first time I was asked to shoot video for a wedding. Erik and Rachel made things easy for me by planning an excellentorius (that’s a word) event, and filming at the Leftbank Annex was stupendouso (that’s spanish for awesome).

A while back I had the honor of covering Darryl and Sara’s Wedding in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Years later they have a new addition to their family, Violet. So we went out in Portland, Oregon and spend sometime walking around and enjoyed a brief break in the weather.

For the past couple of years I’ve worked with Building Champions and helped cover their event The Experience purely through still photography.  This year we kicked it up a notch and added video to mix.

Video is a whole new beast, but I love it.  Also being able to use the same equipment that I use for shooting stills (Canon 5D Mark II), makes things so versatile.

Be sure to switch over the quality to HD.

Having the ability to tell the story of someone through video here in Portland is an amazing thing. Over the next couple of weeks and months I’m going to be featuring some of the most amazing Portland Wedding Vendors that this city has to offer.

First up, Blum; Design in Flowers. It’s owner Jordan Gladow has an amazing story of how she got involved with flowers while in college, that ended up taking her all the way to London to work for a major floist there. Now that she’s back stateside and she is sharing with her portland wedding clients what she has learned over the years to create timeless arrangements, that are still very clean and modern.

 

Vendor Spotlight:
Blum Design in Flowers is an amazing floral studio located in Portland, OR. I wanted to spotlight “The Why” in what they do.
Voted best florist by Oregon Bride Magazine in 2009 and 2010, Blum’s real passion comes from being so tremendously gifted in designing gorgeous flower arrangements for almost any event.
