Hi Nik, when I saw the picture of the bride wearing that beautiful wedding gown standing beside that curtain, I thought that she was a model of wedding gowns! Man, these are amazing photos! And I just noticed by the way, that priest kinda looks like Hugh Jackman. 😀

Iranian wedding in London

I seem to have got a bit of a cult following in London with young Iranian couples recently. Pegah & Hamed were getting married at a church in north London and wanted to have some very non traditional photos so I suggested the wedding party and I went for a walk around the area and we would see what we could come up with. I walked into an interior design shop with the bridal party and asked if we could use the shop for some impromptu photos and they said “sure no problem as long as we can have some of the photos!”.

Really your every shot is cool! Nice work. Thanks.

shirin - September 16, 2013 - 4:58 am

thanks for images.

I Scream, U Scream.

When I say “scream” I really mean it! Of course you could also substitute that with squeal,yowl, yip, or shout for joy! The cause? Last Sunday’s engagement session! With the onset of warm weather the session was a celebration of all things spring! From picnics to ice-cream trucks, you know Punxsutawney Phil {the groundhog} was right when he didn’t see his shadow!

The endearing duo who captivated us with their beaming smiles and infectious laughter was Jillian & Mike {J’s happens to be the editor behind an uber distinctive blog “Pretty Little Weddings“}. The couple has been together for 8 years and are counting down the days till their June wedding!

There is so much fresh air packed into these images you might as well us them as a “scratch n’ sniff”. Breath deep and get ready to fall in love!

Wilma - February 24, 2011 - 10:05 pm

What a fun and romantic day. Your photos captured the true essence of the couple. Kudos!

Fritz Photography - February 24, 2011 - 10:20 pm

Beautiful engagement portrait session. I love the use of the picnic blanket and foods to create a story rather than just a few portraits. And of course, the ‘disguises’ are brilliant. Did you plan all of these props, or did the couple?

Can’t wait for some sunshine and warmth to return to Portland….

Genya Garrett - February 25, 2011 - 9:52 am

Thanks! We worked with the couple to plan the ideas:) But they brought everything except for the ice-cream truck! Jillian had a great eye for detail!!

Kris - February 25, 2011 - 10:23 am

Brilliant, fun set of images

Madeline Jutras - February 25, 2011 - 9:40 pm

I scream for ice cream too! You know what I love the best — well, firstly, your photographer skills … but secondly, your spontaneous nature. It ‘screams’ out of the blog. Beautiful work.

portland oregon wedding photographer - February 28, 2011 - 1:50 pm

these are great! cute and playful–nice job!

katie - March 1, 2011 - 4:22 am

dew_girl - March 1, 2011 - 11:13 pm

You are right … you can almost breathe in all that fresh air. You really captured the true essence of their warm and fun personalities … and all those smiles.

Katlyn Forrest - March 11, 2011 - 7:14 pm

My favorite is the second picture in the field where Mike is holding Jillian — the lighting, the colors, and how very natural everything is. Looks like it was a delightful day.

Singapore Wedding Photographer - March 14, 2011 - 4:33 am

Love this series. The expressions, elements of fun, colors are simply candelicious.

A London wedding by Barrie Downie Studios

On Friday I photographed the wedding of Paolo and Laura at Newham town hall in London, they live a two minute walk from the town hall and wanted some quirky and unusual photos in and around the area. It was a pretty cold winters day in London but we found some great locations in the basement and the ballroom of the town hall. Laura was wearing her mothers wedding dress (her mother got married 37 years ago!).
