Future History

Future -History-and-weddings-Jamie-Bosworth-Photographer

History is a fluid thing… we make it every day. Some of it will get saved for years and some of it will evaporate in a few hours. As a fairly recent invention, photographs have given us a way to look at history a little differently than other types of art. Photographs are personal and portable… you can pass them down to the generations to follow and hope that they continue to be shared.

In my head, I imagine the youngsters at this pool table, many years from now… old enough to have have grown kids and grandchildren of their own. Someone will pull out an old album or a beautiful box of special things and this photo will be in it. The kids will hear the story of the grand hotel in downtown Portland with the little library off of the huge lobby. Someone will say that the history of the hotel mentions that it used to be an iconic department store… that their Great Grandmother used to meet her friends for lunch at the Georgian Room on the 10th floor.

I don’t know about you but history is astounding and I like helping to keep some of it alive. ;0)

Happy New Year to everyone!

Bluejeans to Bride

Used to be that women of a certain class had a full compliment of assistants to get them dressed and out the door… these days it’s more likely to be your best friends from college helping you put the finishing touches in place.
This is a great place for your photographic story to start… just past hair and makeup when you transform from the girl next door to a stunning bride. From any day to Wedding Day.

There are stories to be told all day long and that is why I love this work!

Ordinary Silences

Some people think every wedding picture has to be a fantasy of high emotion, stylized ecstatic faces and riding off into the sunset. Those images have their places in the day and certainly are memorable and welcome. My job is to find as many of the corners as possible… to bring it all forward out of the jumble that piles up in your memory.

Our two flower girls were ready ahead of the wedding party. That in itself is a little unusual but these young ladies found ways to amuse themselves without stressing any of the grownups… a nice corner for the camera.

I hope you are looking for the whole story. ;0)
