We ended up with photos with such an indelible streak of mystery and slight gloom that I think fits their music well. Thanks for letting me tag along on this one, friends.

We managed to snag ourselves a sunny winter's day and drove up to the top of Mt. Tabor for a quick engagement session before heading back to their pad for photos of them in their beloved southeast home.

Two sessions in one. First, we had a walkabout in Portland at peak allergy season. Then we got together in my living room to shoot some portraits that would eventually end up being on the cover of his debut solo EP.

It seems like my hat trick these days is wandering out of town with people I barely know for some awesome combination of goofing off and making beautiful imagery together.

We walked the Astoria pier, got drunk and did karaoke with the locals before driving home at the crack of dawn, all in the span of 24 hours. Somewhere in between all of that we took some amazing photos on the beach.

I hadn't even heard Matt's music before we met up for a mini session, but little did I realize that his band would become one of my favorite acts in all of Portland.

A while back I jumped in a SmartCar with Sallie and drove down to the industrial Southeast Portland for a mini-session during the golden hour.
