Recently I traveled to St. Louis for a photography workshop and to shoot some portrait sessions. From there I made my way to Oregon for Tricia and Sean’s Portland engagement session. Aside from our availability, many things determine which couple’s wedding we agree to photograph such as how much travel is involved, holidays, family time and other commitments, as well as, how awesome the couple is. We invest a lot of time into our couples, so it is extremely important to us that we are a great fit.
Luckily for me, Tricia and Sean are above amazing. After six hours of planes and traveling, they offered to pick me up from the airport, and then opened up their home to me for my three day stay in Portland. I loved spending time with them and their two cats, exploring the city, trying Voodoo Doughnuts, and visiting some of their favorite places to hang out. Well..the cats didn’t join us on our adventures, but they did have their own at home.For their engagement session we made our way deep into some of Portland’s woods hiking around for a good portion of the morning. We then headed into the city for lunch and a little urban exploration at the waterfront. One thing I noticed about Portland is how many marijuana shops there are. Literally almost on every corner along with Starbucks. After walking around the city for a couple of hours we went to one of Tricia and Sean’s favorite parks which sits on top of a volcano. It’s not the type of live volcano that you might be thinking of though. More of a large dormant mound with no opening. It was still a really amazing place with a great view of some of Portland’s cityscape. I had such an incredible time visiting Portland and getting to know Tricia and Sean.
I’m super excited to join Tricia and Sean for their New York wedding and am more than humbled by their unbelievable hospitality and generosity. :) I hope you enjoy these photos from our adventures of their Portland engagement.My name is Matt Druin and I’m an Atlanta wedding photographer that specializes in unique, offbeat weddings for all awesome people!
