We headed out to Forest Grove last weekend for Alisa and Jared's engagement shoot. The day was gorgeous and these two were down for any of our ideas which made for a great evening. They even took of their shoes for us. We couldn't resist when we saw the old shoe clinic sign. Their wedding is just around the corner this summer so stay tuned for photos from their big day.

Just before we embarked on Jade and Cory's portrait session a couple weeks ago, our office mate, Travis, offered us the last 5 minutes of a super 8 roll he had been waiting to use. Josh took the reigns and shot this amazing footage at the end of the shoot. We can't believe how beautiful it turned out! If you are interested in having super 8 shot at your engagement, wedding or other event, Travis of Shields Films is the guy to call! Check him out here:

We were honored to photograph Alexis' Bat Mitzvah this past weekend. We took some photos at her rehearsal on Friday and then photographed the reception at the Portland Golf club on Saturday. It was quite the event! The details of the night were amazing! Alexis loves board games so that theme was carried out in the decor. The floral center pieces were the most unique we have ever seen with floating board game pieces inside the glass vases. She also had a fun sign in board that was based on monopoly. The night was full of fun and dancing and it flew by quickly. Thanks for having us out to your celebration! Mazal Tov Alexis!
My mom is in town from Colorado and we had the pleasure of hanging out with my niece Kiersten for a couple hours at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Park in Portland. There are tons of ducks, geese and squirrels. They are all very tame and you can even pet the geese! Keirsten is pro at feeding squirrels now, she walks up to them and tosses one peanut at a time. She even hit them a couple times. Good aim for a 19 month old kiddo. Here are some shots from the trip.
p.s. good acting mom, you make that goose look like a killer goose!

We met Andy and Sarah earlier this week for their portrait shoot in downtown Portland. We headed up to the fabulous Pittock Mansion to start the shoot. Then we came down Burnside, and walked around the NW neighborhoods in some spots we hadn't shot in yet. These two were really sweet together. We loved that they brought 2 of their favorite comic books for a couple photos at the end. Those were by far some of the funnest shots of the day.
