The Final Frontier

The-Final-Frontier-Jamie-Bosworth-Photographer

The Final Frontier is the phrase that comes to mind when I look at this picture… my couple asked me to step into the men’s room high above Portland at the Nines’s Hotel. They have explored the Nines over several visits from Seattle and they really liked the trippy light and the strange colors on the rooftop level. Departures is not always available for camera time but we were lucky to have about 20 minutes to play before they opened it to the popular afternoon cocktails and fine dining crowd.

Our keys to this rarefied kingdom came from Charlotte Bell… she has to be the most helpful hotel event coordinator I have ever worked with! The entire event from start to finish was in the hotel and every section of it came off without a hitch. Charlotte took me up to Tiffany’s room and then was available with her express key to get us to the roof for a first look. From there down to the lobby for group photos and then back to the roof to play before the ceremony. Never once did we have to wait for her and that tells me that my bride and groom were well taken care of.

The planning is important but the people who will be on hand to see those plans through, those people are priceless.

Two Hearts in Gearhart

I think I am just in a mood to go to the beach today so my post for the week reflects an unanswered wish. ;0)

You may recall this couple from an earlier post. Ali and Anthony had one of those lucky days at the coast… October, mostly rain, but then this beautiful window of soft light right when we needed it. In this photo, we had just finished the private camera time and were heading back to a houseful of celebrating friends and family. I’d like to think Ali was facing back to the scene to try to stitch it into her memory. It’s hard to keep any of a wedding day in your mind and that’s why the photographs really count.
