Kassia & Ben' wedding portraits @ Sprout in Springfield, great Oregon wedding venues
Great Oregon wedding venues It was a blast taking Kassia and Ben's wedding portraits recently. They are such a kind and fun loving couple, it was hard to not keep smiling all day and night long. Kassia got her gorgeous bridal gown at Blush Bridal Boutique in Eugene. Here I used a light and incorporated the gorgeous stained glass from the English style church.Ben and Kassia found me online doing a search for Eugene Oregon wedding photographers and I'm happy that we got to work together, everything went so well.
After their first look, we took these images:
Then we drove 2 minutes to nearby Island Park (where I go married to my sweetie 35 years ago). It was a perfect day, not too hot, not windy, not rainy. What else can any Oregon bride ever want ???? Lovin' the cool turquoise shoes!
Ben and Kassia with their children:I like to try a variety of ring shots. This works for me.... One of the fun things I like to do is use color infra red (special camera), that reads heat. It makes superb black and whites, but also so really surreal color portraits as well.
Their wedding was held at Sprout Marketplace in Springfield, literally a 4 block walk from my home/studio. I had done weddings there years ago when it was 1st Christian Church, but it definitely is more stylish and updated now. We photographed the families there~
Every Friday from 3-7 all year long, Sprout holds the local farmers market in the building, plus 100 mile bakery and 3 restaurants that serve dinner and various food items. My wife and I would regularly go there every Friday to get produce for the week and dinner and desert for the night, so it was cool to see it also used as a gorgeous wedding venue for Kassia and Ben.
and they had Cafe Soriah do the wonderful food. Here is owner Ib Hamide hamming it up. Being a Jewish ceremony, it was a hoot. (And the dancing? Awesome!) Here are just some of my favorites. I had to finish this blog with the Jewish Chuppa that they built for the ceremony (complete with their dog's toy). I like the romantic feel of this wedding photograph.
Below is their short video trailer teaser. Hope you enjoy it! :-)
