It seemed only fitting that we feature some of Portland's local talent since we will be in the Rose City next week. If you are interested in meeting us check our Facebook page, we are having a little mixer and would love to meet up.
Meet Jon Duenas, photographer, and Holly Stalder, designer and stylist. These Portland artists collaborated on this modern take of a Pacific Northwest bridal shoot. A lush Portland, Oregon vintage estate is the backdrop for this bridal shoot inspired by a natural approach to polished sophistication. So pretty. See all of the images in the full gallery by clicking here.
Jon Duenas has a background in fine art and fashion photography. Shooting entirely with vintage film cameras, Jon's style tends towards soft colors, overflowing light, and a vague sense of surreal nostalgia.
Holly Stalder is one of Portland's most sought after gown designers. She creates an effortless glamour for her clients by combining modern lines with vintage flair. Featured in this editorial, organic cotton "Anemone" wedding dress paired with hand dyed vintage lace capelet with rhinestone closure. We think the entire shoot is simply lovely.
