Being that it’s legal and all now, I probably won’t be any extra excited about shooting gay weddings than I already am for straight weddings in the future… but HEY! For now I’m excited! As a wedding photographer, I can finally say that I shot a gay wedding! And it was awesome event; . Super-short but filled with the same scope of emotions and opportunities. I’m proud, dammit.
A behind-the-scenes moment, captured by the amazing Jayda Klingerman-Reed. Cody and Amanda’s wedding was held at the Edgefield Hotel, which has an amazing variety of buildings and gardens for wedding portraits. We had a pretty fun time, but I think these two stole the show!
Jayda and I stopped by Medford’s Portal Brewing Company at the Central Firehall after our ceremony, for a quick flight of portraits (By the talented Peter Kim) and fine brews. I’ve been trying the Oil Painting abilities of Photoshop to create photo-realistic paintings. What do you think?
So if you know anything about Portland’s amazing Chinese Garden’s at 3rd and Everett, you likely already know that a wedding at the Lan Su Chinese Gardens is pretty awesome, simply because the gardens are freakin’ epic. Now include in this wedding matching, pixelated, his-and-hers tie and bow, a Portal ‘Companion Cube’ themed cake, and Gangnam-style groomsmen portraits.
