Wedding & Celebration Photography


Hi, I'm Jai Soots, a Portland, Oregon based celebration and portrait photographer. 

I promise to photograph your celebration with an eye for sincere expression and a commitment to elegance, whether you've chosen an intimate gathering in your parents' backyard, a ballroom in Beverly Hills, or a mountain lake in the Canadian Rockies.

Let's create photographs that make your heart full.

One of the things I love most about being a photographer is the honor of creating art that becomes part of a family's heritage. That's why every Love & Photography service option comes with your choice of an album or a print credit. Whether you've chosen art prints to frame or a locally made, hand bound album to experience each moment of that day once more, you and your family will be proud of the quality of materials 50 years from now.

Everyone loves a good party. The best graduation party ever? Rehearsal dinner? A Moroccan themed 50th birthday celebration? How many reasons does life give us to celebrate? Who will we share that with? Party coverage includes all your images in a private gallery with custom printed invitations for your guests to download the photos they love.

Photographing a coming of age celebration is an honor. From the anticipation of the rehearsal-the moments leading up to your daughter or son becoming an adult in the eyes of your community, to all the joy and dancing at the party; it's the reason I refer to this genre of photography service as "legacy."

Bringing Love and Photography together - a perfect marriage! I specialize in vintage inspired weddings, and love to photograph couples "in the manner 0f" their chosen decade, using lighting and developing techniques that enhance the story of that bygone era. Vintage film camera coverage is available!
