February 17, 2010 by StacyJill

Welcome to our new column, “From the Experts,” where members of our Queerly Wed Directory will share their expertise with you! Today’s post is from Rosemary Ragusa owner of Mon Amour Photography.


Andrew Hogan – Portraits in SE Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary on February 17th, 2010

I first met Andrew while working as the new sponsor photographer for Basic Rights Oregon. He was a huge part of that organization for years. It’s rare that I meet someone with such enthusiasm and an overall joy that just shows up in everything they do. Andrew is now working for a new company and he’s working with me on planning weddings with same-sex couples in the Portland area. I couldn’t think of anyone more fit for the job of planning someone’s wedding. He’s full of thoughtful ideas, kindness, energy, and generosity.
Go Andrew! (I’m just one member of the Andrew Hogan fan club.)

Gee Gee's Beautiful Hands – Legacy Portraits – Portland

Posted by Rosemary on February 12th, 2010

I’m starting up a new and wonderful project photographing and telling the stories of senior citizens. Gee Gee is my “test subject” and is such an amazing person to start with. I was working on another project today and I opened up the folder with this photo in it. I was struck by the power of her hands and how they tell a thousand stories all on their own. I wouldn’t photoshop these babies to perfection if you begged! More photographs of Gee Gee and her lovely daughters soon.GeeGee's Hands, Senior Citizen Portraits
