Wedding {Nikki & Chris}

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Nikki & Chris's wedding.  I knew from the start that this was going to be an amazing wedding.  I have attended several of Nikki's Halloween parties.  She goes all out with decorations, drinks, atmosphere, and of course her costumes are hands down some of the best I have ever seen.  In fact, it was at her Halloween party last year that Chris proposed to his bride to be, (fake) rotting teeth and all!

Their wedding had that same attention to detail that all of Nikki's parties do.  First lets talk about the amazing use of color.  I am pretty sure Nikki's dress had every color of the rainbow in it.  The bridesmaid dresses were all their own unique hand crafted originals from a local designer, and all the groomsmen had different colored ties.  Often the finished images from a wedding are half black & white and half color, but there was no way I was going to do that with such a colorful wedding!

My second favorite thing was the use of succulents for Nikki's bouquet, hair piece, cake decorations, and as the backdrop for the alter.  Honestly, there were so many amazing details I could go on and on about so I will just let the photos speak for themselves instead.  Oh and the horse head the couple brought for the photo booth was a huge hit!

I turned to photography at a young age as a way to manipulate the world in front of me into endless possibilities. It remained a hobby for several years until I decided to run away from the snow in Iowa and towards the rain in Portland, OR. While I was inspired by film makers and my surroundings, I had a tendency to pick apart single frames and freeze them. My memory wasn't a movie playing back in my head, it was a series of still images that created a narrative. This translates into my work through the use of lighting and props that build a scene and create a story. When I am not taking pictures, I spend my time roller skating, playing with my puppy Charlie Von Shitbird (he is very sophisticated), spending time with my snake Vans, embarking on capers with my girlfriends, messing around with special fx makeup, and exploring the great Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer. The best thing about my job is getting to meet a variety of people. No to shoots are the same and I thrive on getting to know my clients and collaborating with them to create truly unique and bold images that fit their needs. Whether it be wedding photography, family portraits, small business needs, or you simply want a kick ass original portrait. If you are looking for a creative experience that will not only boost your confidence but create a lasting memory then lets make it happen!
