Wedding Engagement Portraits – Mt. Tabor Park

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on August 16th, 2011

I am absolutely thrilled to be photographing my fellow boot camper Janet’s wedding to the ever so sweet Darrell. Janet & Darrell met on the go during Cycle Oregon which the two do on a yearly basis. As part of the ride Janet is raising funds for Kids with Cancer (for more information on how you can support this organization by donating go to: http://candlelighters.donorpages.com/2011RideForAChild/janetgrayson). Janet and I are all too familiar with the location for our photo shoot, Mt. Tabor Park, because we run up and down that crazy hill just about every Wednesday as part of our fitness boot camp. Darrell, Janet, and I had a great time running around the park playing and setting up the occasional portrait.

The pair will be making it official this fall at the University Club in downtown Portland!

Engagement Portraits – Kelley Point Park

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on May 20th, 2011

Wow, Barbara and Matt introduced me to a new gorgeous park in N. Portland. I just love it! There are lovely paths, rolling hills, and a “beach”. We met up yesterday for their engagement portraits and it was so much fun! This is just one quick favorite from our session. More to come soon.

Engagement Portraits – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on February 10th, 2011

I love my assistant and friend – Gabe Rodriguez. So it comes as no surprise to me that I find the members of his family to be charming and adorable. His sister Megan is no exception to the rule. And her fiance Michael will be a perfect addition to the family. In preparation for the big day in July, Megan and Michael came up to Portland from Florence for a day of cake tastings (yum! – Gabe and I got to try some of the cake samples too) and a portrait session with me! We had a lovely time frolicking about in the park on an amazingly BEAUTIFUL and warm January afternoon. Gotta love the weird winter weather in Portland.
I’m so looking forward to shooting their wedding this summer in Florence.

Engagement Portraits at the OSU Campus

Posted by Rosemary on November 26th, 2010

We’re thrilled to share these fun and fabulous engagement portraits of Amanda & Damola. The two meet at OSU and got engaged on campus last fall so it just seemed like the perfect location for our portrait session. The three of us had a great time picking out cute little nooks for the two of them to snuggle in for some casual and candid portraits.

The couple will be having a wonderful, wintery affair this January to tie the knot!

Congratulations Amanda and Damola!

It’s always flattering to get a referral from a fellow photographer! That’s how I met David & Sara, an adorable engaged couple who were gracious enough to choose Mon Amour Photography to capture their wedding this August at St. Agatha’s. As we do with all engaged couples, a complimentary engagement session was a must. I met up with David & Sara one beautiful spring afternoon for a sunny photo shoot amid the gorgeous foliage at Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden in SE Portland near Reed College, and the results are just as beautiful as the couple themselves. We also got a few urban engagement portraits on the train tracks by the studio to appeal to their city loving side. Take a peek at the rest of their engagement portraits in the gallery! engagement-portraits (more…)
