Liz & Mark :: Expecting a Baby!

This was my first maternity shoot! Mark and Liz are great friends of my wife and mine – so what a perfect couple to test out my “maternity” photo skills. These were taken just before they revealed the baby’s gender, so I’m looking forward to a round 2 in the next few months when Liz is closer to being due.

Hailey & Carson :: Engaged! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

Doing an engagement photo shoot in early June can be a little risky in Oregon, but we had fabulous weather with a gorgeous golden-toned sunset. Hailey and Carson warmed up to the camera quickly! Their interactions with each other were so natural and fit the purpose of an engagement shoot perfectly. Congrats to you both – looking forward to the wedding in October!

Family Reunion!

I don’t do family portraits very often, but my church was doing a fundraiser and had a silent auction. I donated a portrait session, hoping it fetch at least something for the church. To my luck, some good friends were the purchasers! And they put it to good use – a Memorial Day weekend family reunion. We did the photos in Lincoln City on a day that the weather forecast showed nothing but rain, but as it turned it, it was absolutely stunning weather! We had over 20 people in the group photo and had a little time to do individual families as well. I was very happy my donation went to such great people!

Meg & Matt :: Engaged! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

This was one of our most fun engagement shoots ever! We started on the Oregon State University campus, ventured into the Saturday Farmer’s Market in Corvallis, then visited the classroom where these two lovebirds first met in eight grade at Santiam Christian. Their chemistry is obvious, and when two people love being around each other it makes photographing much easier!

Congrats, Meg and Matt! Looking forward to your wedding in July!

Jessica & Brad :: Engaged! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

My wife and I spent the weekend in Lincoln City, Oregon and that Sunday we were able to meet up with Jessica and Brad for their engagement photos. The weather was beautiful – clear skies and fairly warm! I love visiting the Oregon coast and it is one of my favorite places to take photos. We had a great time with Jessica and Brad and are looking forward ┬áto their wedding in May!

Here are a few photos from the shoot.

A little scenery

Wedding photography is my favorite thing to shoot, but a close second is nature. I love hiking, getting outdoors and it seems as though I rarely take the time to capture scenic photos.

Here are a few I recently took. One is from Lincoln City, Oregon and the other is the Salem, Oregon capitol building. Both were taken at dusk/sunset when I had time to relax, be patient and wait for the shot I wanted. The beach photo was taken with my beloved Canon 35mm f/1.4L and the capitol was captured with the highly underrated Rokinon 14/2.8 (Rokinon FE14M-C 14mm F2.8 Ultra Wide Lens for Canon) – a fabulous bargain lens for full-frame cameras. Enjoy! Feedback greatly appreciated.

Tommy & Nicole :: Engaged! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

I’ve known Nicole about seven years now – along with some other friends, we’ve traveled to Washington DC and Russia together. I was excited when she asked if I would be able to photograph her wedding! For the engagement photos, we spent a good chunk of the day walking around downtown Salem… lots of walking… Thanks to both of you for being flexible and willing to try out some different areas around town. It’s going to be a blast being part of your September wedding at Green Villa Barn!

Eric & Elizabeth :: Engaged! :: Salem, Oregon Wedding Photography

Here are a few photos from a recent shoot with Eric, Elizabeth and Eric’s son, Noah. We did a quick combo of engagements and family photos. Noah was very excited to have his photo taken and was a natural in front of the camera! We hit a tad bit of rain, but overall lucked out with the weather.

Congrats, Eric and Elizabeth! Looking forward to your June wedding at the beautiful Silvan Ride Winery!

Testing the Canon 85 f/1.2L II

It arrived! The Canon 85 f/1.2L II was a lens that I had really wanted for some time, but was hesitant to purchase because of the price and the fact that my Canon 85 f/1.8 was doing just fine. After a lot of back-and-fourth, a little prodding by my wife, and selling two other lenses (including the 85 f/1.8) I splurged and got the 1.2L II.

Weather has been pretty crummy and I had to leave town for a business trip – so I haven’t had a chance to get some real-world exposure with the lens. However, tonight I decided to stay in and take a few test shots around the house. Just for fun, I tested the lens at f/1.2. Here are a few samples.

Tomorrow I will be testing the lens for the first time with people – taking photos for Andrea & Andy in Portland. I’m looking forward to trying it out in the context of engagement photos!

Fall Colors

One of the great benefits of living in the Northwest are the fall colors. Every year I vow to get out and scout the best scenic photo opps to capture the fall beauty. And almost every year I get too busy or distracted, and by the time I start planning an outing the winds and rains have set in, taking the colors away.

This year I was able to get out and do some portraits. I never did plan a hiking day for scenic picks, but I’m happy with the colors I captured over the weekend with these people. Here are a few samples – more can be found on my Facebook page.
