Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

Top 1 Portland-OR Fine Art Wedding Photographers for 2020

Page Updated: February 11th, 2019

Would you love to find an artistic Portland-OR fine-art photographer to document the details of your big day and to complement your unique love story with a creative flair? The Wedding Photojournalist Association can help! Documentary-style wedding photographers are, first and foremost, photographers — artists, in other words, whose medium is the still photograph. In the Artistic Guild competitions, WPJA members show off their creative talents for digitally enhanced still-lifes and fine-art detail photos.

Quarterly Artistic Guild contests for Portland-OR fine-art wedding photography are held annually, entered and judged separately from the WPJA competitions held during the year. After each contest, we add another collection of award-winning detail images to our wedding photographer’s member profile galleries.

What could be better than the details of your carefully planned event captured by a top Portland-OR fine art wedding photographer? Detail images generally are tighter framed shots on some of the day’s textures, and features, whether as arranged by the photographer or as they were found: dresses, gowns, suits, rings, linens, flowers, bouquets, cake, shoes, or champagne glasses. A collection of tightly cropped faces would likely also be a “details” shot if the surrounding context has been subdued to bring out the image’s artistic impact.
