Family Portrait Photography – SE Portland

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on June 27th, 2011


I love working as a family portrait photographer. I especially love working families that I have known for years. I’ve been photographing the Turner family for over 6 years now and they are such a joy to work with. The kids are totally adorable, sweet and fun. And the grown-ups are pretty awesome too! It was a BEAUTIFUL spring day in SE Portland when we all gathered. This time we were able to get Great-Grandma, The Grandparents, and the uncles together. What a treat. And these photos will be something the kids can look at and cherish for a lifetime.

See all of the photos from our session in the gallery.

It’s been one year since I photographed the wedding of Jamieson and Tiffany. It was such a fun day.

They are so fabulous; a perfect pair!

Happy Anniversary.

Enjoy the sun!

Business Photography – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on June 17th, 2011

I recently had the privilege of doing the office photography & business portraits for Dr. Bobby Jones and his staff at Blackbird Natural Health offices. Bobby is a friend of mine whom I met through my Business Networking International group, and when he asked me to shoot him and the Blackbird staff in a new series of business portraits, I was elated! Dr. Jones is a pretty funny guy, so I figured his sense of humor would set the tone for the photo shoot…suffice to say, I was correct. The office and staff set such a relaxing, warm tone and made me feel immediately at ease. Blackbird Chiropractic is an amazing natural healing resource for Portlanders with back problems of all kinds, as their philosophy is one that takes maximum advantage of the body’s natural ability to be a healing machine in and of itself. Check out Blackbird at their Web site if you haven’t already…it’s a pretty great place with great people! (more…)

Wedding Photography – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on June 10th, 2011

I was so lucky to be asked by the dashing (and now-newlywed) duo Matthew & Mark to photograph their wedding, which was held at the breathtaking View Point Inn last month. I met these fellas two years ago when they were in the very beginning stages of planning their big day, so it has been a real treat to see their plans come together so perfectly. They have been lovely to work with and it was awesome to see their families supporting them on this fantastic occasion. Matthew & Mark corralled an exceptional group of collaborators to help give their wedding all the flourishes they dream of, with the Viewpoint Inn providing a stunning Columbia Gorge backdrop for their ceremony (which was officiated by the Alethea Devi), flowers by Geranium Lake, makeup by the amazingly talented Michelle Lagos of Atlantis Studio, and the masterful piano genius Matthew Kern giving guests a lovely musical accompaniment to the entire affair. Add to that a deliciously gorgeous cake by Papa Haydn and you couldn’t ask for anything more! You may recognize the Viewpoint Inn from the movie “Twilight” (come on, admit it!), a scene of which was filmed there; however, from here on, the Viewpoint Inn will surely be most famous for playing host to the wonderful wedding of these two incredible men. Matthew and Mark, we wish you the very best in your life together! Thanks so much for inviting us to be a part of it all! For the full set of images from Matthew & Mark’s wedding, head over to the gallery. And don’t forget to check out the special slideshow we made of our favorite shots from the big day!
