Portland Studio Photographer | Lighting Set Up

Here's a quick video I made showing the lighting set up for my shoot today. I'll be photographing one person and we'll probably use some props. I might move the lights around a little once we get going, but after doing a few test shots I like the look they give. Stay tuned for photos!

Portland Fashion Photographer | Jade Rose Designs

Last week, my alarm went off at a ungodly early hour of the morning, but I knew that meant one thing: fashion photo-shoot time with Jade Rose Designs. I haven't done many fashion shoots before but I was eager to wake up early and get some rad photos with my friends Jaderose, Rachel and Katherine. Our plan was to do the shoot in a nature setting, but it snowed enough the night before to hinder us from leaving the city. We decided to compromise and do a grungy urban setting near my studio at an old abandoned gas station. We all had a ton of fun on this shoot, and came away with some great modeling material for Jaderose to use for her hair piece design company.

Thanks Jaderose, Rachel and Katherine for being so awesome!

Portland Wedding Photographer | Chris and Samae

Chris and Samae are two very fun and unique people who both have a very exciting attitude. They're summer, Hood River OR wedding, was such an experience. I loved sharing with them in being a part of their special day and helping create memories, capture precious moments and spend time with them and their guests. Samae found me though a student of hers that she taught a photography class to, I had photographed her student's wedding earlier last year, which can be found here. Chris and Samae had such a lovely wedding, everybody was so happy and kind. It was a beautiful day with beautiful weather. Thank you Chris and Samae, I really enjoyed photographing your wedding!
