4.12.16: Watch KPTV's TV interview with Alice's MoscaStudio about wedding photography insights and tips!

Today was a debut for us here at MoscaStudio Television! Even after 13 years of being in business, we get shaky and excited about unexpected things in the world of wedding photography, and we’re grateful for that! It means that we do still care and that we are still deeply involved in the craft. We’re honored to have been asked to be interviewed by KPTV (Portland’s Fox News Channel 12) as experts on wedding photography. I was interviewed at our studio for about 45 minutes, and then our good friend James (cinematographer for KPTV), edited the set to a quick 4 minute story. He did an amazing job filling what I said to the images I submitted for “show and tell”! I am so grateful and so honored! Thanks for looking, friends! <3

Super special thanks to:

  • James and team at KPTV Portland’s Fox News Channel 12
  • Sara and Matthew at Bluemercury in The Pearl for my Make Up and Hair
  • ALL of our couples for being my spokesmodels for the story (See the images below!)
  • And Josh, for being my ultimate cheerleader and best friend <3

Smith Rock Bend Oregon wedding photography. Images by © http://www.moscastudio.com #moscastudio

We are so excited to show you this gorgeous destination wedding in Smith Rock State Park, by Bend Oregon. Central Oregon is absolutely beautiful for photography and we’ve had the pleasure of traveling there for 2 stunning weddings so far this 2015 summer season. We can’t wait for the rest of them! Exploring a brand new place to capture someone’s wedding day, is what keeps us inspired and excited about our art. Crystal and Kevin, pictured here, are not only stunningly good looking, they are in love and fun and funny and definitely adventurous! It was Crystal’s idea to hike in wedding garbs all the way to the bottom of Smith Rock State Park, for us to take our iconic environmental wedding photographs. It was music to our ears when she told us that we’d hike down there (which the 4 of us with pleasure and with fun!). We began the day in two separate AirBnB homes for their getting ready photography, then met at Bend’s downtown park for their first look (there was a beer festival at the time, so their “private” first look was witnessed by hundreds of people!), then we drove 30 minutes to the beautiful Smith Rock State Park for their portrait and ceremony. Their reception was back in downtown Bend at a trendy loft, surrounded by Bend’s annual culinary street fair… needless to say, June 20th 2015 was one busy day! We had a blast and loved seeing them marry. We can’t wait to see them again, soon!

Elopements are beautiful, intimate and sweet celebrations of a couple’s love, while surrounded by a handful of friends and family. It is a very private way of celebrating the union, and it is just as photographable and meaningful as large wedding days. MoscaStudio absolutely LOVES photographing elopements too, especially if they are organized by an amazing group of vendors! Gwen and Ty married this past Sunday June 22nd 2014 at the beautiful Leach Botanical Garden in SE Portland. The list of professional vendors is impressive: Sandy Shipley (officiant), Vibrant Table (catering), Vibrant Flowers (florals), Face Body Beauty (make up and hair), Bridal Exclusives (Gwen’s dress)… Gwen and Ty’s wedding reception (with 200 or so people!) will be this coming August 2014 and will be photographed by MoscaStudio associates Kelly & Jim. We can’t wait for all of their celebrations to happen, to complete their love story! We even have a post-wedding engagement session to do! :D Here is their elopement sneak peek, in the meantime :)

Maya & Hideaki eloped with a handful of family members this past Friday August 9th, 2013. They flew to Portland from Tokyo and, together, celebrated the love between one another. We met at the always adorable Oaks Pioneer Church in Sellwood, OR to then drive to Washington Park Rose Gardens for even more portraits. Their officiant was the always lovely Sandy Shipley of Sage Creative and we loved every minute of this day! Thank you Azumano for organizing it and including us!
** Family and Friends! All of the photographs of Maya & Hideaki’s wedding day are on their private online gallery.
