I am finally getting to blog weddings from the Summer along with some other shoots that are way overdue.

Jon and Charlene got married this past August at The Newell House Musuem next to Champoeg State Park in what is currently St. Paul, Oregon.

Dan and I took German together in high school. After high school he enlisted in the Marines and was injured while overseas. In a couple weeks he is marrying the love of his life, Becka, who is finishing school to be a professional dog trainer, and is an absolute riot.

We took their engagement photos a couple months ago in the International Rose Test Garden in Portland, OR._MG_8894 _MG_8895 _MG_8902 _MG_8905 _MG_8913 _MG_8919 _MG_8925 _MG_8933  _MG_8944 _MG_8951 _MG_8957 _MG_8966  _MG_8967  _MG_8979 _MG_8996  _MG_9003 _MG_9011  _MG_9012  _MG_9018 _MG_9022 _MG_9025 _MG_9027 _MG_9032  _MG_9035 _MG_9049  _MG_9051 _MG_9056  _MG_9063 _MG_9090 _MG_9102 _MG_9106 _MG_9121 _MG_9126

The Painted Hills are a phenomenological geological formation in Central Oregon. They make up one-third of the John Day Fossil Bed National Landmark.

Kimberly and I decided to trek out that way late this past Spring. We had a large picnic, stared blissfully at the Hills, and set up camp under a large Juniper tree in the light of the stars some 15 miles past the Hills. Here is a look at our trip. The square photos at the end are taken with my Hasselblad 500 C/M, shot on Kodak Portra 400, and processed by Blue Moon here in Portland.

Michael and Sarah are one of those couples that have been together forever. I was fortunate enough to go to high school with them and watch their relationship evolve from two 16-year old kids into adults who have survived life changes with one another and still found a way to make their relationship flourish; that is a large chunk of marriage: in the midst of rough times finding not only a way to get through together, but to flourish.

Michael and Sarah were married back in August (I waited too long to post this) at Michael’s parents’ home. In many of these photos you will see an old camper that his family refers to as Sunny Day.

Like their dating relationship I believe these two will have a long and flourishing future together. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Lansing.

I shot with Jena a couple months ago. She is an engaged professional hair stylist. I’m sure her wedding will be ridiculously beautiful.

Jena also has a ton of experience acting and dancing. Her height also made her a wonderful model to work with.

The Wooden Shoe Tulip Festival is a wonderful large event that happens during the early part of Spring every year in Woodburn, Oregon.  My wife and I try to go every year. This year the Sun was out, it was warm, and there were hundreds of people in attendance. It was a perfect opportunity to shoot some film. All of the square photos are medium format film.

White River Falls is a fairly powerful waterfall in Central Oregon. It’s in the Tygh Valley roughly 30 miles south of The Dalles. In the past there was a hydroelectric dam below the falls ( structure still remaining) and many people would kayak down the lower tier of the falls.

My wife and I decided to drive that way for the day a couple of months ago. I took photos of the falls between bright sun breaks. In the parking area above us a vintage car club was passing through and showing off their toys. On the way home we drove through a rain storm that yielded to a hail storm so strong we were concerned if I drove anywhere near the speed limit my windshield would break.

The last two photos of the falls were shot on film.

A shoot with Jessica Owens at Portland State. The sun had just gone done, and the rain had started up.

When Jessica and I met up to shoot she told me that every photographer that had ever photographed her had only wanted to take photos of a “pretty blonde”. I wanted to see her as more than that.  Noone had ever talked to her or gotten to know her. She had never been photographed more as she dressed, with her love of dance, and not just a pretty blonde girl. She had also never had any photos which were edgy or a little darker. The rainy day we shot seemed perfect for that. We shot around an outdoor garden area at Portland State University, and after the rain got heavy we ducked into a nearby parking garage for a couple shots.

Shot indoors in a bathtub full of water, some milk, and lavender. And a wonderful model too of course!

I shot this set with Shayna a couple of months ago. As we conversed before deciding to work together we came to the realization that we both had been wanting to do a bathtub shoot for quite some time. She was an extremely wonderful model to work with and imagined numerous poses even though constrained to a very small set. An absolute pleasure.
