When Trista and Andrien walked into our studio for the first time we found them smiling with an unforgettable glow, ready for the Portland engagement photos. They embrace the inevitable “organic flow” of life so beautifully and we are thrilled to be their photographers. They are 3 years into their relationship, have 5 dogs and live on an acre. Yes, they were pregnant and madly in love and ready to go on an adventure with us into capturing the events of their life. From a Portland engagement lifestyle “maternity” shoot on Valentine’s Day at the Sentinel Hotel. The iconic Portland hotel offered a central location for their weekend getaway together and a great backdrop for photography. We were also honored to capturing their baby boy “Roman Michael Alvarez” on St. Patricks day. These two don’t waste a moment, they love every minute as if it were their first and last. Such a great philosophy to live by as they make life long memories at every opportunity.
We can’t wait to capture their wedding this August at Hotel deLuxe. Hotel deLuxe offers a great Portland classic feeling with its funky interior architecture, furniture and art displays. We love how they cast old black and white images over the walls. The Hotel deLuxe is also perfectly located in Portland for easy foot access to the best of Portland.
