Wedding Photography – Bridal Veil Lakes, Oregon

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on August 30th, 2013


There are few places more beautiful than Bridal Veil Lakes in the Columbia Gorge. It’s such a lovely place for a wedding. For the bride & groom, the location was perfect!

This August, I had the pleasure of documenting the union of Brandy & John on a gorgeous summer afternoon. Surrounded by friends and family, the two tied the knot under a canopy of trees.

All of the details were hand selected by the bride and groom and it all came together to create one fabulous affair! The couple had a wonderful idea that I have never seen in all of the weddings I’ve photographed, they had (my favorite) Dove Vivi Pizza at each table for dinner! YUM!

And, they finished the night off with a wicked fun dance party.

This wedding was very personal, loving, and above all a great time.

Time for a fresh new professional portrait! Jennifer & I have worked together many times for various portraits needs both personal and professional. Every once in a while you just need a brand new portrait to freshen up your marketing materials and website. Jennifer is fabulous at what she does and so fun to work with. I think this portrait really shows off her creative and fun loving nature.

Family Portraits in Laurelhurst Park

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on August 14th, 2013

I just adore this little family. We met up at Laurelhurst park earlier this summer for a casual family shoot. Corey & Rylee are tying the knot this summer and this is just a little pre-celebration of their fabulous event to come. I am met Corey through a business networking group; since then he has helped me get out of a number of computer related jams. He’s such a cool computer geek! I highly recommend his services next time you need computer/network help, here’s a link to his site: http://www.coreybranstrom.com/

B, Corey’s son, is just about the cutest kid I know and I LOVE his “photo bomb” in the shot below.


Congratulations on your union Corey, Rylee & B!




Family Portraits – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on August 7th, 2013


I just love family portraits! It’s such a treat to meet and have fun with a variety of families in the Portland area. It’s also a great feeling when I get to help people capture a particular moment in life. This family is having an interesting summer which includes some cancer treatment for mom. Everyone is taking it in stride and enjoying time together. As a family they wanted to have these photos to remember this time in their lives together. Mary – the mother, is also making a card for friends and family who have supported them during this time. On the back she chose such a perfect quote to remember now and always:

“That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet. ”

-Emily Dickinson
