Dylan Barss' Bat Party/Halloween

We had a Halloween/Bat Party since my oldest son Dylan was born on Halloween and loves Batman and that is enough of an excuse. We had a great time and a lot of our friends made it over to hang out and have some fun. JP and Amy, friends of mine, were kind enough to help me out with their Party Shots set up, which is their company and they provide just what the names says for parties, weddings, and events.  They run this company as well as doing great wedding and portrait work through their original company -AJ’s Studio . Another friend of mine, Greg James, owner of Solstice Video captured some footage of the festivities for a little highlight reel to look back on. The kids were hopped up on sugar and the lights were low so he had his work cut out for him, but he does awesome stuff even when the conditions aren’t ideal.  Anyway I thought it would be fun to share a couple of photos from the night of my Bat family.

These are some fun images from Michelle Golder and Jeremy Knudson’s wedding. Michelle has worked for my wife as an event coordinator for a number of years and so I all ready had a relationship with both Michelle and Jeremy which is a great added bonus. Michelle and Jeremy hired my wife’s company-Soiree to assist with her wedding and a lot of other familiar faces as well. They had Hybrid Moon video, Musica Dolce, Eric with All Wright Music, Dream Cakes, Crysal Lilies flowers, Katherine with Event Cosmetics, and Andrea with August Veils The ceremony was at St. James Lutheran Church and the reception was at Courtyard Marriot North Harbour.

Michiko and James engagement portrait

These are some of my favorite images from an engagement portrait session of Michiko Gibson and James Hillenmeyer. Due to fact that they lived out of town and some scheduling conflicts we had only 20-30 minutes, but I think we still got some great shots. We shot down by the shoreline in Sellwood at Sellwood Riverfront Park
