Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on February 15th, 2012

wedding-photography-dress-flower-details
I met my buddy Jessica from Bash Event Planning last year. She needed some portraits and we working on those, creating some really sweet shots for her website. She and I have a lot of similar ideas about what looks good when designing a “look” for weddings. So we put our heads together along with some other really talented wedding professionals (listed below) in the area and came up with this totally fun wedding inspiration shoot. Special thanks to The Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden for letting us use their venue, it’s suc a beautiful space. Jessica’s inspiration for this particular set up was “Garden Party Glamour”. Enjoy the photos and I hope they will inspire you in your wedding planning. Oh, one more thing… Our adorable couple are truly in love, they were married a few years ago and have a lovely little family started.

Winter Wedding Photography at the Rose Garden – Portland, OR

Posted by Rosemary Ragusa on January 27th, 2011

We couldn’t be happier for our studio neighbor Megan (the florist extraordinaire behind Fieldwork), who was recently wed to her handsome new husband Corey. We were lucky enough to photograph Megan & Corey’s exciting day, which was held in SW Portland at the gorgeous Rose Garden (in season or out of bloom, the place is a feast for the eyes). The affair was quite modest but totally lovely, with close family in attendance. Megan’s magnificent vintage wedding dress is from Xtabay vintage clothing boutique (where else could you find such a stunning gown?) and the men’s suits are by the exceptional Portland tailors Duchess Clothier. What a well-outfitted couple!

What a beautiful October day this fabulous couple chose for their wedding! Lovely newlyweds Chris & Natasha are the happiest couple imaginable, and given how magnificent an occasion their big day was, it’s easy to see why! The wedding was held in Milwaukie, OR at the historic Broetje House, a gorgeous Victorian classic estate that provided a perfectly picturesque setting for the intimate gathering of Chris & Natasha’s family and friends. The occasion was made even more lush and lovely with flowers from The Flower Shop in Milwaukie and a delicious cake by Jacivas. We wish the couple and their daughter Violetta the very best in their long and happy life together.

This summer I was given the wonderful opportunity of photographing David and Sara’s wedding in SE Portland. I brought along my associate photographer Heather and we had a great time capturing the fun and romance of the day. We started the at St. Agatha’s Catholic Church in Sellwood where David, Sara and their close family and friends solidified the couple’s union with a beautiful ceremony. Then we were off to the Arista Ballroom to party, with a brief stop on the train tracks to experience the fabulous sunset over Portland. Watch the slideshow of their gorgeous wedding.
To see all of our favorite images from the day take a look at the gallery. (more…)

Super fun wedding!

Posted by Rosemary on August 28th, 2010

Heather and I had such a great time photographing David Golden & Sara Loboy’s wedding last night! Their wedding took place at the beautiful and unique St. Agatha’s Church in Sellwood, with a reception at the lovely Arista Ballroom on Hawthorne Blvd. Why was it to fun you ask? Well here’s the list:
1. First and foremost Sara and David we’re having a wonderful time celebrating their new union (bonus – they looked great doing it!).
2. They were also surrounded by a fabulous crowd of friends and family.
3. It was a particularly temperate evening in Portland, Oregon with a gorgeous sunset.
4. Heather and I love working together.
5. At the end of the night Heather and I got to take these fun Original Photobooth photos!
The list goes on and on.

So far, this is our favorite shot from the evening, but we have tons to look through.

I simply love the idea of having a photobooth at a wedding reception. I will be the first to say that they shouldn’t “replace” a photographer at your reception, but they are the perfect complement to each other. This photobooth company in particular has a great product and is run by a super friendly lady – Christy Vance and friends.
Stay tuned for more!
