Ohmygosh! I love this wedding. Julia and Joe may be the sweetest humans on the planet. It was such a bubbly and happy day. Every. Single. Minute. See for yourself. Yes, the dancing. Who else but a guy in a band gets a smoke machine for his dance floor? Also, when the newly married couple were announced into their dinner–they’d hidden little musical instruments under the chairs of the guests. Mini maracas and tiny tambourines serenaded the couple to their table. AND….churros! Congratulations, Joe and Julia! Happiest wedding day ever.

Elegant. Gracious. Beautiful. That’s how I’d describe this entire day. Erin and Jordan gathered with their friends and family to marry at the Grotto in Portland and after, celebrated in style at the Portland Art Museum. My favorite moment of the day was watching Jordan seeing Erin walk toward the altar with her father. Every part of this wonderful day was wrapped up in that exact moment. Congratulations, honeymooners! See you after Paris!

I can’t recall a wedding with more fun, more friends and happiness than this day. The skies over Brasada were hazy but bright as the sun tried it’s best to shine. Annie and Eric’s affection and happy energy had John and me smiling all day long. What a pleasure it was to be along on their beautiful and heartfelt wedding day. Congrats, Eric and Annie!

custom printed jump drives for Altura Studio

Today I’m packing up a new delivery and get to use these pretty new jump drives. In the past, I’ve been burning DVDs for clients, but as image file sizes have gotten larger, I’ve had to include three or four discs to hold all the images. That can’t be very convenient for my clients, plus it just takes too darn long. I’m also thinking about how our customers will archive their pictures. We have to think about what formats will stay viable as technology advances.  If you’re a 2017 client and your collection includes digital files, this is how you’ll receive them. If you’re a 2016 or earlier client and are interested in having an archive like this, get in touch with us.
