Dancing at the wedding reception

There was quite a dance-off at the wedding reception and things got wild.  The groom was doing a lot of taunting, so the moves got increasingly elaborate!  We always have a lot of fun when things escalate, so the camera is firing non-stop.

#lovewins! Facebook lit up last Friday morning like shooting stars… it had just been decided at SCOTUS when I got to my desk. It was like watching all the lights come on in a really big city, a few at a time until the skyline is glowing. :0) The hashtag #lovewins ruled the day and I was gratified to see that so many people were happy about this decision. I don’t think I have seen a kinder day in the social feed in a while.

These happy couples have all been married in the last few years… the images were from their engagement sessions. For a couple of them it was more of an uphill battle than seems possible. I cannot imagine someone telling me I can’t marry the one I love! Needless to say, there should never have been a rule that says any of them should be treated differently than the other. I’m very proud to see our country level this particular field… maybe we can get rid of all discriminations if we keep moving forward.

Now that’s it’s just marriage, let’s talk about yours, ok? ;0)

Just a short drive from Portland, you’ll find the Historic Columbia River Highway Scenic Byway.  The winding roadway showcases many waterfalls and other scenic spots along its route through the Columbia Gorge, which is listed as one of The Seven Wonders of Oregon.  It is an absolute must see and for those getting married, we recommend adding a Columbia Gorge engagement session to your bucket list.

Katelynn & Francisco opted to capture their engagement photos along the Columbia Gorge toward the end of the day as the sun was setting.  We hiked a few waterfalls, stopped at a handful of scenic locations, and ended the session at the iconic Crown Point.  The views are absolutely breathtaking – arguably some of the best Oregon has to offer.

To see more of our work, please check out Paul Rich Studio.  We are conveniently located at Portland’s original bridal services collective The Bridal Loft.  We are accepting a limited number of wedding assignments in 2016 so there is no better time to contact us.


Ashley & Chris came all the way from Chicago to say their vows in front of a waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge.  We met in the Wahclella Falls parking lot, hiked out to the falls where Ashley changed into her dress, and then she met Chris, their officiant, and their two witnesses for the ceremony.  Hearing the sound of water pouring over the cliff as they professed their love for each other has been one of the highlights of my year.  After the ceremony, they drank champagne and we headed out on a photo tour through the Gorge.  They’ll have a reception this fall for all their midwest friends and family.

I love waterfall weddings, and what better place to have them than in Portland?

Anyone who has planned a wedding knows how much time it takes to make sure everything goes just like you want it at your wedding. But there is one thing you can do while planning your wedding that will actually help you after your wedding. Take some time to think about doing a picture during your wedding day that you can use for your “thank you” cards. There are all sorts of creative ways to make that happen. For Sarah and Curt it was a matter of making a “thank you” sign and using the beautiful surroundings of their wedding location to create a photo that will go on their card. I’ve had other couples who have written out their message of thanks on the beach and others still who have changed into t-shirts emblazoned with their words of thanks during their reception. But, no matter how you get the message across, putting your creative minds together and planning ahead can make for a fun way to thank your guests for their gifts and their presence at your wedding. I hope that’s good, helpful information. If it is, you can thank me later!! In the meantime, for more inspiring photos, check out

When Matt & Kelli pulled up in this robins egg blue vintage pickup, I was so excited to see where this beautiful evening was headed at Frenchman’s Bar Park in Vancouver, Washington.

Bringing your personal style into your engagement session is a must, these are about you as a couple and the more personal you make it, the more comfortable you will be and the more you will have a blast!

The gorgeous backdrop, beautiful couple, and a whole lot of love going on with these two, I cannot wait until their wedding at the Langdon Farms in August! Please feel free to stop by Deyla Huss Photography to check out more!

The first look is a classic moment at every wedding. Here is one from a recent wedding we shot at McMenamins Edgefield. Fernando’s face lit up with a truly genuine smile as he saw his bride for the first time in her wedding dress. This was a particularly sunny day and guests were beginning to arrive, so for this first look we snuck the happy couple back behind the reception area and they stood in the shade. This also provided them a moment of relief from the heat as we’ve had a particularly hot start to summer this year!

First look Abernethy CenterThis past weekend, Lydia and Tuan were married at Abernethy Center in Oregon City, OR. This sneak peek from their wedding day is from their first look: the moment Tuan turned around and saw Lydia for the first time. The joy that is evident during this moment was only one small part of the happiness and laughter they shared throughout the afternoon and into the evening. Check back soon at for their full preview from their wedding day.

Crystal Dolphin Wedding

Crystal Dolphin Wedding

Couple years ago I photographed an Ethiopian wedding in Portland. It was a beautiful two day affair at the Reserve Golf Club wedding and Portland Airport Sheraton. Mimi was a beautiful bride and she also had four beautiful sisters. Mekiya is now getting married as well, and they called me to photograph their engagement pictures. Chance has it that I had just talked to Portland Spirit and Crystal Dolphin cruise boats to do a shoot so we decided to do a classy engagement session shoot at the yachts. Here are the results that we did at the Crystal Dolphin. I can’t wait to photographer her Ethiopian wedding in Portland soon!

Wedding Photography at St. Mary's Cathedral in Portland

As the bride and groom left St. Mary’s Cathedral, they had a lot on their mind. There were many events yet to come, but I loved seeing them so relaxed. As you prepare for your wedding day, just remember that you will need to intentionally remind each other to be fully present. Don’t let the day get away from you!

Imagine the day ahead of you… the day you thought would never arrive.
Nicole settled into the limo for the ride to the church and she actually paused for a moment to drink it in. Jon was pulling out of the driveway with his Best Man, both sharply dressed in the shiny blue convertible… looking for all the world like something out of the Kennedy years. The family groups and the wedding party photos had been taken care of in the morning garden, a small brunch had been shared and everyone was now traveling towards the rest of the day. I imagine that each of them was thinking about the day ahead and all were looking forward to it.
