My First wedding in San Francisco, California was a great one. Dana & Will have impeccable taste & were amazing to work with. Their ceremony was at a National Historic Landmark, Swedenborgian Church, which was built in 1895. The reception was at Presidio Social Club… so much fun.

Can’t wait to get back to the Bay Area this year for a wedding in Berkeley, CA.

2018 - A Look Back

Mark Federighi Photography Portland wedding photographer0017.JPG

Like most years, 2018 had its share of highs & lows. The highs were pretty great though. One of the highlights of my year was an amazing trip to Northern Italy with my beautiful wife. We love our daughter endlessly, but parenting is hard & it’s great find some time for ourselves… And doing so in Italy ain’t too shabby.

Weddings & other photography work took me to San Francisco, Oakland, Chicago, Michigan & of course, Portland & other Oregon locations. I also got back into doing family sessions, which I hadn’t done much of in awhile. As always, I’m forever grateful & honored that my wonderful clients chose me to document their big life moments.

I’m also a work-from-home dad & I try to document some adventures with our daughter each year.

I’m already excited for what 2019 has in store & I still have available dates. So, feel free to get in touch if you’re engaged, need family photos or for other photography needs. I will travel anywhere for weddings & elopements.

Thanks & have a great 2019!

p.s. In a former life, I led a band. life gets in the way & I hadn’t completed a new song in a couple of years, so I promised myself I would in 2018. I finished the song below, just under the wire & I thought I’d include it here, if you feel like having a listen while you scroll.

Lindsey & Roberto - Wedding - Mount Tabor Park & Plaza Del Toro, Portland, Oregon

Lindsay & Roberto were an absolute joy to work with from engagement session to their amazing wedding. They had a beautiful day for their ceremony in Mount Tabor Park, with a highlight being the New Orleans style, second line parade. I could’ve done a blog post of just those photos. The reception afterward at Plaza Del Toro was also beautiful & of course, had amazing food.

Kevin & Travis travelled from Memphis, TN to have an intimate, river boat cruise wedding on the Crystal Dolphin. So, not only did I get to document the love of these two super sweet & relaxed gentlemen, I also was treated to my first cruise along the Willamette River on a perfect summer night. I love my job.

Gabby & Stephen - Wedding - Plaza Del Toro, Portland, Oregon

These two lovely humans moved to Portland from New York not so long ago & I'm sure glad they did. It was a pleasure documenting their beautiful wedding at Plaza Del Toro in Portland. Plaza Del Toro is an event space owned by chef John Gorham, who is responsible for a number of other amazing Portland restaurants (so the food was amazing, of course). PDX brought the PNW vibes in early June & it was perfect.
