Last weekend we were lucky to have the opportunity to fly down to Lake Tahoe to shoot a beautiful wedding at Heavenly Ski Resort. The day was eventful as we started out at the base of the mountain and worked our way up via a gondola. The weather went from warm and sunny to suddenly raining and smokey due to a nearby forest fire, but that didn’t stop us from venturing outside with the bride and groom. The chaotic weather pattern gave us a stunning backdrop during sunset. To see more of Steph and Eric’s wedding, visit their sneak peek album here.
Tuesday night the Portland Timbers hosted the first CONCACAF Champions League game in Portland. The boys in green won 4-2 vs CD Olimpia of Hondorus taking the lead in the group stage of the tournament. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the game. The first shot I love. Maxi’s foot on the keepers foot, the keeper with a hand in the face and yet he still got passed him to score a goal!
Last weekend we shot Amy and Harry’s beautiful wedding at Villa Catalana Cellars in Oregon City. In the summer, this vineyard lends its space to the Rare Plant Research Nursery for special events, such as this one. We couldn’t have asked for a better setting or better light. The ceremony was held on a stone terrace overlooking a pond, and the reception activities went on against a beautiful sunset backdrop. Here are a few of our favorite pictures from the night.
Here is a clip from a recent photo shoot we did for LINKS Magazine for a story about speed golfing. Had a fun time out out Pumpkin Ridge in Hillsboro, OR with Christopher Smith. Hauled some lights out onto the middle of the course and setup a spot for him to jump over a little creek to show how the pace of speed golf doesn’t follow traditional paths. You get to the ball as fast as you can anyway you can!
This weekend we shot 3 sports events at 3 venues in 36 hours.
It all started with the big matchup between top 10 teams Oregon and Michigan St at Autzen Stadium. Great game. There was a forest fire about 30 miles away and the wind had carried the smokle into Eugene and it filtered the sunlight and made for some really nice light.
The next day the Timbers played host to San Jose. Another awesome game. The Timbers came out attacking and although the final was 3-3, it was probably one of the best games I’ve seen all year.
Finally, after the Timbers match I went straight to Ron Tonkin Field in Hillsboro to shoot the Championhip match between the Hillsboro Hops and Vancouver. Hillsboro one the game 4-2 and won the Northwest league Title for the first time to cap off a really busy, yet really fun weekend.
Our associate photographer Tom Boyd shot this wedding at Clark Lewis Restaurant on Portland’s waterfront. Here are some of our favorite images.
