Portland Portrait Photographer // Claire+Todd

May 31, 2012

Welp, let me introduce you to two of my new best friends. Claire and Todd. An amazing married couple who just moved here to Columbus recently. Claire is a baller wedding photographer and Todd is a baller creative of all trades. We connected on about 109 different levels, from music, to hot dogs, to taste in art, to the fine craft of axe hanging which Todd is going to school me on in the coming months. It really just reiterates the fact that having a connection to your subject is one of the most important, if not the most important aspect in shooting. Hanging out with friends. That’s what it should feel like every time. I can’t express how refreshing it is to hang out with these two, a breath of fresh air. Claire and Todd ladies and gentlemen…



This photoshoot is beautiful! Every detail in these photos captures this stunning couple in such a beautiful way!

Love this set, Phil! Love the swath of light coming down in the 3rd image. You killed it!
