Jenny and Matt spent the entire engagement session giggling with eachother as we walked through the Pearl District.  It’s so much fun to spend time with people that are so open, genuine, and 100% in love. They’re the kind of people who’s happiness rubs off on you – within 5 minutes of starting their photos I felt like I was taking pictures of friends I had known for years. Later, as I sat down at my computer to edit their session I found myself smiling all over again and was struck by how good pictures can be when people aren’t afraid to have fun and be themselves in front of the camera. Good job Jenny and Matt – you guys are a hoot and I can’t wait for your wedding next month!


Macro Landscaping!

June 4, 2010

Well – two relatively awesome things have happened around the studio here lately.

Firstly, we’ve teamed up with Monique Altson of Altson Landscaping – a  rockstar landscape designer here in Tigard who’s busy putting together a plan to turn our back yard into my own little photo park. I can’t tell you how excited I am to have a location right here at the studio for outdoor shooting – it’s gonna be rad! I just wish this rain would stop so we can finally get strated on the implementation phase!

Secondly, I just got a sweet new macro lens (a lens for really close up pictures). I’ve been having a blast with it and decided to get some shots of the most recent plans that Monique brought over. Enjoy!
