The Year in Portland Wedding Photography
There’s this idea of the “Hero Shot.” The one photo that embodies an entire photoshoot and best shows off what a photographer can do. Personally, that idea doesn’t translate well in my approach. The trophy I take home at the end of a long day isn’t ever one single photograph, it’s an entire series of moments. In my casual work, those moments come together to tell the story of a single day in history. In the wedding world, they culminate into a retelling of one of the best days of two peoples’ lives. You can’t tell that story with a single shot of two people staring straight into a camera. You can see it in their eyes, a little glimmer, but it’s just a peek.
So this year in review might be a bit different than you’re used to seeing. There’s still a lot of the images you’d expect to find, as well as some non-wedding moments I snuck in there because this was the year I just said YES to everything. But you won’t find any decorations or macro ring shots, and it’s light on the standard portrait.
Because I love to tell stories and stories don’t originate out of stiffly directed photos, they evolve around them.
