The Nines Hotel in downtown Portland is one of my favorite locations to photograph weddings and engagement sessions. Not only The Nines Hotel is conveniently located in the heart of Portland, there are so many beautiful backdrops to choose from when shooting portraits. Whether you’re just getting ready there, or having your entire Portland wedding there, the staff is very accommodating and professional, and did I mention the beautiful backdrops?
This gorgeous couple was an absolute pleasure to work with. They really went all out with the details for their wedding, including having their hats custom made by a haberdasher in England. They wanted to add a Mad Men feel to their wedding celebration, and I think they managed it quite successfully. Because they were such an elegant couple, I wanted some of their portrait shots to incorporate quite simple lines, and make them really stand out – The Nines Hotel provided a beautiful backdrop. And because I started shooting film photography, and spent quite a bit of time in the darkroom, I was able to recreate that vintage feel with some of their portraits in my editing in digital.
