Questions to ask your wedding photographer by Portland wedding photographer Paul Rich Studio

Let’s face it.  Hiring the right photographer to capture your wedding day is a significant decision.  For this reason, we have compiled a list of discerning questions to help you find the wedding photographer that is right for you.

  1.  There are a lot of photographers in Portland.  Why should I hire you?
  2. What is the most challenging/difficult situation you have handled while photographing a wedding?  How did you handle it and what was the outcome?
  3. What do you do to improve the quality of the work you provide to your couples?
  4. Every photographer processes and handles their images differently.  What level of retouching and enhancement of the photos is provided on the full resolution images?  For example, if I wake up with a cold sore on my wedding day, will it be removed from the full resolution files I receive?  Will it be removed from the images that are in my wedding album?
  5. What steps are taken to ensure no family members are missed during the formal portraits?  What steps do you take to minimize the amount of time it takes to capture those portraits?
  6. How do you feel about the use of Pinterest to convey a look or style I am hoping to achieve in my wedding photos?
  7. While photographing my wedding, what do you do to make the work of the DJ, florist, wedding planner, etc. easier?
  8. How often do you calibrate your computer monitor?  (This ensures color accuracy in your wedding photos and should ideally be done somewhere between 1-3 months).
  9. What steps do you take to ensure your files are backed up properly and that your CF/SD cards do not fail on the wedding day?
  10. How important do you feel it is to visit the ceremony/reception site(s) prior to the wedding day?

To see more of our work and to have the opportunity to ask us these questions, please contact us at Paul Rich Studio.

Alicia and Jeffery’s wedding was held at The RiverPlace Hotel in Portland. After the ceremony, we took a walk along the river bank and down one of the docks. Completely unplanned, a large group of rowers on the dock raised their paddles and created an archway for our newlyweds to walk through, cheering them on.

As the sun lowered in the sky the evening of Rachel and Lee’s wedding, gorgeous rays of light poured in through the windows of the Exchange Ballroom and lit certain spots on the dance floor. There was a perfect moment when the bride and groom danced into one of the areas of light and we were able to capture this photo.

Mount Tabor Park wedding by Portland Oregon Photographer Rebekah Johnson. Wedding photography isn’t just about romantic captures, it’s about you, the friends and family you choose to surround yourselves with, and all that is real to that time and place. Yes, I may photograph your shoes and other details of your day but I am really on the lookout for all those unplannable moments that come and go that are the true unique details of your wedding day.

The Evening Light

Light is one of the mandatory components of meaningful imagery and the quality of light helps us convey the emotions of the moment. When the wedding reception is in full swing and the sun is slipping behind the horizon, the light can become soft and diffuse… a quality that only exists for a short time before the sky goes dark. This soft light can be utilized to put attention on the new couple and the emotions that surround the fact that they are now married and they have crossed one of life’s great milestone together!

Above, Chandler and Taylor had a wonderful moment on the dock right before the sun disappeared for the day. The soft light frames them wonderfully in their environment while drastically lighting the edges of their forms in stark contrast to the natural green shapes of the forest that engulfs them. Thanks to Chandler and Taylor for allowing us to be a part of this moment!

Thanks also to Bridal Veil Lakes… for being a great place to shoot!

Misty Resort At The Mountain Wedding

It started out at a Huskies fraternity tailgate and continued on to be a match made in heaven truly! What a beautiful wedding at The Resort At The Mountain in Welches, OR! We were expecting sunshine and open skies but instead we got a misty Resort At The Mountain wedding and a whole lot of fog! But that didn’t stop this wedding from being gorgeous thanks to the amazing Elizabeth of Bridal Bliss! Having to change things up a bit last minute was nothing short of flawless!

Watching Nicole with her mom and sister was so sweet during the preparations, both mom and sister helped her get her dress on, and its usually one of my favorite times during the day to photograph because it is such a sweet memory being built for them. There was music and lots of dancing when the girls were getting ready! During the ceremony, Nick and Nicole exchanged two red roses symbolizing something like a unity candle would, very neat idea! After the ceremony, everyone moved over to a cocktail hour on the deck outside of the ballroom and THAT was just the beginning of this evening! It was filled with SO MUCH dancing and fun which led to some amazing reception photos! We ended the night with all the University of Washington Alumni on the dance floor for a group shot throwing up their “W” can’t get better then that!

I was truly honored to be a part of Nicole & Nick’s beautiful day, Getting to know them both over the last year through the planning process was such a pleasure. you can see the rest of this wedding on our blog HERE.

Vista-Hills-Vineyard-Engagment-session-Jamie-Bosworth-Photographer

It’s breezy and quiet at Vista Hills Vineyard in July and an engagement session one month before the wedding gives us a chance to get used to each other before the big day. Susan and Milton are from Texas but Oregon is one of their favorite playgrounds. Around here, they are happiest in the Portland food scene and roaming in our gorgeous wine country.

Besides getting used to the camera, Susan was able to try her hair and makeup ahead of time… the talented Katherine Ross did a lovely job! Susan also found out that her initial florist wasn’t up to the task… enough so that we didn’t use the flowers in this shoot. The trial run aspect of an engagement session can point to the strengths and weaknesses in the fabric of your planning, especially if you are making Portland a destination wedding.

The unexpected thing we got from this session was a chance to make a wine label for them. She had mentioned that they were going to have a September reception in Texas and that the cake was to be shaped like a large wine bottle in a box. She asked if I could make her label for the cake “bottle” and one that could also be used on the gift bottles for their guests. I hope they will share a picture of that cake afterwards. ;0)

Getting to know my couples is one of the best things about my job… by the time we did the wedding last week, I felt like these two were new friends in my circle.

This might be our new favorite photo that we’ve shot of a bride making her way down the aisle. At Sarah and Juamaine’s wedding, we caught this moment when Juamaine wiped a tear from his face as he saw Sarah and her father walking in. To see more images from this lovely wedding at Postlewait’s, visit a sneak peek album on Facebook.

Here is one more image from Molly and Dylan’s wedding that we really love. The first dance often takes place later in the evening, after the sun has gone down, so we have to find the best way to light the dance floor. Here, we used cross-lights to illuminate the bride and groom dancing their first dance as a married couple. To see more images from this wedding, visit a sneak peek album on Facebook.
