Phuong and Tony

Meet Phuong and Tony, they are such a cute couple! We went to the lovely Pearl District for an engagement shoot. We walked everywhere, climbed every wall, they are troopers! It was a great session though, I cannot get enough of them - they make every picture look great!

I shot all of them in natural light, occasionally using a reflector as shade when there is too much sun. Kept it simple with my 35mm, 85mm, and 80-200mm. Nothing too fancy, but fantastic results.

Shutter Happy Wedding Guest - Part 2

I had the privilege of attending Lori and Sikhiu's Wedding this past weekend at the Embassy Suites. I wanted to be more of a guest than a shooter, so I tried to stay out of the way as much as possible again. The good news is, I didn't shoot as much as Julie and James' wedding so I got to mingle a bit more instead of hiding behind my camera. The bad news is, my definition of a simple set up was a D700 + 80-200 2.8 AFS... not exactly small - but it is the only zoom lens I own and I can safely grab shots from a distance. I even left my camera bag in the car! Highly pocketable combo if you fancy MC Hammer pants.

Anyway, it was a beautiful wedding at the Embassy Suites in Downtown Portland.

Without further ado:

Michelle + John = Fun!

Many of you may remember Michelle and John from my previous posts. They loved their pictures so much that we went out on another shoot! This time it was night time at the Rose Festival. We had a blast, I even got to use off camera flash quite extensively.

They are such a fun couple, their personalities really shine through in every picture. I'm looking forward to shooting their wedding in October!
