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.

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.

Anna & Enrique - Wedding - Gordon Lodge, Door County, Wisconsin

We had a really dry summer last year in Portland. However, Anna & Enrique's gorgeous wedding at Gordon Lodge in Door County, Wisconsin brought the Pacific Northwest vibes. Moss, evergreens & cool, overcast weather (my favorite). Ceremony at Stella Maris Catholic Church.

Special kudos for one of the best choreographed first dances I've seen... such an amazingly sweet couple.
