Alice & Chuck | Engagement Session in Downtown Portland, OR

October 18, 2011

Alice and Chuck came up to Portland for their engagement photos earlier this month, where we traipsed around the downtown area, dodging raindrops and marathon runners. Chris kept getting distracted by his LCD screen – this couple is just oozing with beauty.

And then it happened. It almost always does…

“I’m not photogenic,” she said.

That sentence is something you get used to hearing a lot as a photographer. And you know what? It’s never true. I hate to get all mushy on you guys, but facts are facts: you are beautiful! Being able to help people discover that beauty is what I love most about my job.

If you ask me, this set of photos has the final say. The verdict is in, my friends – the camera loves you!

“I’m not photogenic,” she said. Chyeah, right!

Alice and Chuck, thank you for letting us in on your love story. I hope you love these photos as much as we do!

Photos 4, 7, 13, 24, 35-37 and 40 shot by Chris.

That dove in the first frame – love it! And the tilted one… yeah and the rest of the frames too… I always get the impression you’re great at making the people you shoot feel comfortable in front of the camera.

OH Kim, these are so incredible!! The light is perfect, the mood, and you really let the couple feel natural while shooting and it shows!! BRAVO!!!

beautiful! you got some great natural moments. and did i mention how much i love your blog layout and the rotating header?? AH! i need a blog design overhaul.

Thanks Alice!

The redesign has definitely been a work in progress, but it’s finally starting to come together!

Really great shots! They’re a very stylish couple. Some sweet moments caught, they should be very happy!

They’re so great! What a beautiful couple. There’s some beautiful locations in there, too. I don’t know how you get the light so perfect. Congrats to the couple :)

Thanks Wayne :) Good light is one of the few perks of constantly living under the rainclouds of the PNW!
