Merrel Wedding

It has been a wedding packed week full of shooting, editing, and planning for upcoming weddings.  As I was updating my website with some of my more recent work, it dawned on my that with my road trip a few weeks ago I neglected to share a wedding I finished up just before I left.

Nichole and Jason were so much fun to work with.  They really wanted an emphasis on portraits, which just happens to be my favorite part of wedding photography, so we were a perfect match.  They were married at Willamette Valley Country Club in Canby, OR which has a beautiful golf course where we did their portraits.  I also had a short amount of time to sneak into their reception area and capture some of their amazing DIY decorations.  I think may favorite detail was the stacked books with upside down glasses they used for pie stands.  Here are a few of my personal favorites.

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!
