What an amazing experience it was to photograph Ben and Steph's wedding! They were married on the slopes of Mt Hood Meadows. Literally, we had to take the ski lift and ski down to the ceremony location. They met snowboarding and both love the outdoors so it fit them perfectly! They continued the celebration downtown and held a reception at the fun Screening Room in NW Portland. We loved every little moment of this day and how unique all of the events were. The sweetest moment of the day was when Ben surprised Steph with a song he wrote just before they danced their first dance.
We headed down to our old stomping grounds, Corvallis, a couple days ago and met up with Brie and Brandon for their engagement shoot. The day was beautiful and we really enjoyed working with these two. A fun moment was when we went to play pool at McMenamins and we set up the 7 and 11 ball next to eachother for a shot. Those numbers represent their July 11th wedding. We loved that idea!
With the blossoms on the trees and the sun peeking through the clouds, it is safe to say our engagement shoot season is officially started!

Josh was approached last year by the record company for the band "Falling Up" to see if they could use one of his photos for a CD cover. The band is from Oregon, but they tour all around the west coast and have several CD's already out. Josh and I went to Border's in Corvallis a couple days ago and saw the CD right there on the rack! We couldn't believe it. question: How cool is it? answer: very!

We got a chance to collaborate with our office mate Travis of Shields Films a couple weeks back. He came along and took video at Ben and Steph's engagement shoot at the coast. We look forward to working with Travis much more this summer. It is cool to see the video perspective along with our photos! Let us know if you are interested in adding video to an engagement shoot or wedding package!

We are so happy to talk about our all time favorite DJ for weddings and special events. He is so good, he deserves the title of "Wedding Entertainment Director." Shawn Whittemore knows how to make a party happen. Everyone always has the best time when he and his team are behind an event's entertainment. He is professional as well as approachable and friendly to everyone. The night always flows well with Shawn. He knows exactly how to move everything along without being cheesy or tacky like so many DJs can be. He is so good that we can't think of anyone else in his field to recommend! You must check out his website and call him today if you have an upcoming event.
His website has just been updated and we love the new look. Congrats Shawn on all your success! You deserve it all. CLICK HERE: eventteament.com
