Vaudeville Wedding Photo Shoot at The Governor Hotel

Sometimes inspirations come in the form of “styled shoots” when other local wedding professionals and I get together to bring our imagination to life. The reason behind any styled shoot is not only to build our portfolio — by getting featured on a popular online wedding blog and/or get published in a printed wedding magazine — but to, hopefully, connect with prospective brides and grooms who may want this idea for their own wedding. We want to help inspire you to create the wedding of your dreams. //To inquire about my Portland Wedding Packages & Pricing, please complete the Contact form or call 503-308-8228 (PST).

Film Is Not Dead: Miami Photography Workshop

This past December, I joined about a dozen talented photographers in Miami, Florida for an awesome workshop all about shooting film, FILM IS NOT DEAD: Miami. During this workshop is when I had an epiphany … It seems like this happens when I need it the most. I’ve been feeling like I’ve lost some inspiration, what had me chugging in this business for four years— Wait. It’s more like five years now because it’s 2012. Happy New Year!!! (Here’s a sneak peek: Photo by Jonathan Canlas.)

Traditional Indonesian Wedding Photography in Bali

Bonny & Derrick’s Bali Wedding was featured on Junebug Weddings today!!! WAHOO!!! Big congrats to every vendor who made this beautiful wedding happen!! This is a personal milestone for me as this is my first-ever national real wedding feature!!! Something that we forgot to mention in the article is that Kayumanis Nusa Dua Bali held the traditional Muslim wedding ceremony on a floating stage over their pool for the first time. Also a very first, the photographer was a woman, including her assistant— this is uncommon in Indonesia … The photographer was me! //To inquire about my Destination Wedding Packages & Pricing, please complete the Contact form or call 503-308-8228 (PST).

If you know Kristen, then she may have already given you a nickname or two. They range anywhere from your name shortened then pronounced twice, like Ne-Ne, or what sounds like kisses. Mwah-Mwah? That’s how she makes you feel … Like you’re a part of what makes her smile. A big part of what makes Kristen smile is Shadi … (She makes him smile, too!) When Kristen’s happy, Shadi’s happy. Kristen & Shadi: I hope you two have a fab-fab time on your FABULOUS honeymoon in Bora Bora!!! //To inquire about my Portland Wedding Packages & Pricing, please complete the Contact form or call 503-308-8228 (PST).

A Day After Wedding Photoshoot in Bali

In Bali, the sun quickly starts to set after 5PM then it gets pitch black on the island; the Indonesian Wedding Ceremony for Bonny & Derrick’s wedding began around 4PM which gave us very little time for portraits after their hour-long ceremony. But, we were not too worried as the newlyweds had already pre-scheduled a Day After session with me because they knew they wanted portraits when they could relax and feel more themselves. But, during their bridal photo shoot at Kayumanis Nusa Dua Bali, Derrick was still not comfortable showing his teeth when he smiled. He never shows teeth (as he puts it); he doesn’t know how to smile. He’s worn metal braces for some years and prematurely removed them to surprise his beautiful Indonesian bride on their wedding day … But, he still would smile with tight lips only. No teeth. I asked him to smile bigger to get some variance for their wedding album, but it didn’t make much difference. When I asked him to kiss his new wife, he smiled. With teeth. Finally!!
