Category Archives: Destination Weddings

I do accept a select number of destination weddings a year; I have my cameras and passport ready for travel worldwide. (I do not charge for my travels for a few reasons; send me an inquiry about your wedding plans and I’ll explain why!) For all local Portland weddings, please visit my friends at ANIKO Productions … They’re wonderful!!!

I am a Portland-based film photographer who specializes in boudoir and family portrait photography. My blog is intended to help clients get the most out of their boudoir or family photo sessions with me and to provide expert advice to other photographers as well. I welcome questions, comments, and suggestions about my blog. I am also happy to share my blog with other bloggers, particularly those dealing with professional boudoir and portrait photography, travel or any combination thereof.

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!!

Traditional Indonesia Wedding Photography with a Modern Day Love Story

A year after they flew me overseas for their Bali Engagement Photos, Bonny made her way down the long narrow tunnel at Kayumanis Nusa Dua Private Villas & Spa, but careful not to overstep her floor-length Inca Rosalyn kebaya dress. Her brand new ALDO shoes didn’t even make a sound as she approached the man patiently waiting for her at the end of the tunnel. Under the humid July sky in Bali, he wiped his forehead dry for maybe the third time anticipating the familiar touch of the woman he had met there just three years ago … It would be his first look today of that same woman, but it would be completely different: Today, he would get to call her his wife. //To inquire about my Destination Wedding Packages & Pricing, please complete the Contact form or call 503-308-8228.

Bucket List: Shoot Bali Engagement Photos (Check!)

I was in Manila, Philippines when Bonny & Derrick flew me over to Jakarta, Indonesia to meet them. Then, we flew out to Bali where I was finally able to live out a life-long dream of seeing this magical land with my own eyes. Seriously, no words … No words. I cannot wait to bring my husband to Bali to help him check it off his list, too! //To inquire about my Destination Wedding Packages & Pricing, please complete the Contact form or call 503-308-8228.
