Edgefield Wedding Photography

Wedding at the Edgfield Troutdale, OR

  I absolutely love photographing weddings at the Edgefield in Troutdale, Oregon. There are so many nooks and crannies and beautiful elements to add to anyone’s wedding. Even walking up the pathway or street you may see a great spot to photograph the couple at. This particular couple above allotted a good amount of time to walk around the property to take advantage of the vast area Edgefield has. If you are looking for a very Portland feel and a lot of gorgeous elements, this is a great venue!

Bridal party goes down Alpine Slides at Ski Bow, Mt Hood, Oregon

Wedding party goes down Alpine Slides at Ski Bow, Mt Hood, Oregon

When you arrive at your wedding reception, arrive in style. This bride, groom, and their wedding party took the fast and fun way down the mountain to get from the ceremony site to the reception site. The Alpine Slides at Mt. Hood’s Ski Bowl are 1/2 mile long, and provided us this perfect picture opportunity during an awesome wedding.

Portland Persian Wedding

I mentioned before that every wedding is a fun wedding to shoot, but some are truly memorable. This was one of those memorable weddings. When you have a beautiful couple, and a beautiful location, what more can you ask for? This gorgeous wedding took place at the Portland Art Museum, and had a lot of details that need to be photographed. The bride and groom and their families did such a great job on this wedding. The sofreh was very elaborate, and incredibly well designed and decorated. So of course we incorporated it into some of the family portraits. It was a such a pleasure photographing this beautiful couple.  They did everything in style, from getting ready at The Nines Hotel, to their portraits in the Portland Art Museum and the downtown Park Blocks. And did I mention that the food was fantastic? They also had the traditional Persian cookies and candies, which are amazingly delicious. For their reception, they flew in a Persian band from Los Angeles, who kept everyone on the dance floor for hours. Such a fun wedding to shoot.

The Rings…

How does one make a statement to the world that they have chosen someone?  How will the rest of the world know that this one person has not only found love, but been brave enough to personally commit to the public expression of it.  Not just someone to share a home with but the idea that from one moment on, all life’s joys, sorrows, sweet successes or its failures are to be spread out between two people.  The rings are the statement.  The rings are that visual reminder to everyone that they have committed.  Whether a family heirloom, a hunted treasure or a custom designed piece, the ring becomes part of your identity.

The above shot exemplifies not only the moment, but the intent that surrounds true love.  Lindy is beautifully holding the ring that she is placing on Michael’s finger.  The story is not only in her gripping of the ring, but the embrace of Michael’s hand.  No words or smiles are needed to see how much hope, trust and love are in this moment.  The statement is made.

If you are intending to slip a ring on your loved ones finger, call us!  We’d love to talk!  juliana patrick photography

A couple does a dip for the photo shoot in Portland Oregon


As we move from summer to fall, the weddings begin to slow down and engagement sessions begin to fill the calendar.  It is inspiring to spend time with couples and learn about what makes their relationship tick.

Portland has an abundance of locations that lend to different styles of photography, so don’t hesitate to be creative about which environments fit your personality the best.

At Atelier Pictures we are ready to make some great portraits with you.  Contact us to schedule an engagement session.

You got to love the unplanned elements of a wedding-or at least most of them. I think perhaps there is an art to the photo bomb and blended with the,often intended elegance, of a wedding it seems to add another layer of humor. These are the brothers of the groom and I think it is as much about brothers being brothers as anything. I have a brother and it seems no matter how old you get it never gets old to mess with them a little.

Have fun at your wedding and cut loose.

Once upon a time, there was a rehearsal dinner at a beautiful California vineyard in Sutter Creek, right in the foothills of the Sierras. Kenrick and Lindy had everyone fly in for this wonderful weekend. They had hired me completely over the phone… we had some long conversations and many e mails and found that we were a good fit. It was nice to get to know them a little better at the rehearsal and to be made welcome into their good crowd. The wedding went off the next day to great success… astounding food, fancy dancing and, for the end of the night, a local bowling alley complete with disco lights.

Fast forward to this coming January and you will find me in Old Town Alexandria happily covering his brother’s wedding. (Kenrick is the man in the cool hat and Chris is the man receiving a really nice bottle of single malt.) For Jennifer and Chris, all of our planning has been over the phone and in e mails but I’m pretty sure I am going to know some of the crowd a little better at the upcoming rehearsal dinner. I can’t wait!

Destination weddings? You bet!

Wedding ceremony at Summit Grove Lodge

Wedding ceremony at Summit Grove Lodge

The rustic elegance and pristine setting of Summit Grove Lodge makes it the perfect location for wedding celebrations.  The lodge is set on 5 acres surrounded by old growth forest and nature trails with sculpted rock waterfalls and meticulous landscaping.

The all weather garden area includes a Pacific Northwest style gazebo and a very cozy fire pit perfect for any wedding ceremony.  The main lodge includes original cedar-log walls, fir beams and flooring, and boasts a 20-foot vaulted ceiling.  The lodge is truly spectacular and can seat dinner for up to 150 for a reception.

During Jamie & Tony’s wedding ceremony, sun streamed through the tree lines creating a very beautiful moment as the couple exchanged their wedding vows.  A member of Jamie’s family once owned the property so when it came time for the couple to choose a location for their wedding day, Summit Grove Lodge seemed like the perfect choice.  And it was the perfect choice.

To see more of our work, please check out Paul Rich Studio.  We are conveniently located at The Bridal Loft just outside of downtown Portland.


When Emily Rose was planning her wedding there was no doubt about who would take on the very important job of being flower girls. Emily chose the girls that she has been a Nanny to for some time now  as they are like family to her and she to them. I think for the most part they took their jobs quite seriously and did a swell job. Anyone who knows me, knows I love to photograph children so as you can guess I had a field day with them. I think I did a pretty swell job too!

The Miller Farm Retreat in Parkdale, Oregon is one of my new favorite venues.  Towering trees, an epic view of Mt. Hood, a fantastic host family, surrounding orchards, beautiful accommodations and being able to stay at your venue for the entire weekend make it a truly exceptional place.  Lauren & Paul were married there on a glorious August evening.  I loved their colors–the perfect compliment for their woodland atmosphere.  The hats with pink bands to match their ties and bridesmaid gowns was a great finishing touch.

There are many “firsts” at weddings: the first kiss, the first time a couple is presented as “Mr & Mrs” and, of course, the first dance. Of all those firsts, the first dance is my favorite! It always seems as though as soon as the music starts, the couple sees only each other in the room. They talk and laugh and kiss as they glide along the dance floor as if no one is watching. Okay, some don’t glide as well as others, but it’s always a beautiful and heartwarming part of the day. Maybe it’s because this is something they have practiced together and they are so focused on getting it right that they only have eyes for each other. Maybe it’s because they are a bit “on stage” that they turn to each other for reassurance. Or maybe it’s because it’s the first time during the day that they get to relax, take a deep breath and realize that all this excitement has meant they are now a married couple. Whatever the reason, like Danielle and Casey here at Postlewaits, no matter how the first dance goes, every once in a while it ends with a stylish dip. To see more firsts, check out

October 17, 2014; Portland, OR, USA; Timbers Army members Sunday White and Heidi Koenig get married in section 107 before the match at Providence Park. Photo: Craig Mitchelldyer-Portland Timbers

Many people know that not only do I shoot 30-40 weddings every year, but I also shoot tons of sporting events for various teams and publications, including the Portland Timbers. I often feel that my sports photography background helps me with capturing moments at weddings. Tonight, my sports and wedding worlds collided when two members of the Timbers Army – Sunday and Heidi – decided to hold their wedding in Section 107 with 20,000 of their friends before the match at Providence Park. It was fantastic. Here is my favorite image. Be sure to see more of my sports and wedding photography on my website!

peninsula park wedding ceremony

One of them is a Portland native, one of them thought Portland sounded like a cool place to get hitched. One of them jumped at the chance to go running through the Peninsula Park fountain after their wedding ceremony and one went along for the splashing jog. One of them sang karaoke on the school bus shuttle en route to the ceremony, the other was on the receiving end of a beer fountain. One of them calmly waited beneath the perfectly shaped trees of Peninsula Park’s immaculate gardens while the other stepped slowly towards him with mindful intent. It wasn’t always the same person that started each act, but it was the two of them jointly marrying in a beautiful and touching Peninsula Park wedding ceremony.

Emily and Joe brought joy to their day in ways hard to describe with words. They thoroughly enjoyed every moment of the day – and most importantly were completely present at each part as well. I couldn’t have asked for a better day with them. To see more photos of their Peninsula Park wedding and Union Pine wedding reception, check out our blog showcase of their wedding day. If you’re looking for the perfect role models in planning a fun and laid-back wedding, you’ve found them.
