Svea and Blake’s January 2018 wedding at Crystal Ballroom in Portland OR

Svea and Blake’s wedding may have been in early January, on a day that can be cold, rainy, or even snowy, but instead the weather was sunlit and warm, and so was their wedding! The ceremony took place at Bethel Lutheran Church in NE Portland, and then moved to the legendary Crystal Ballroom on West Burnside for the reception. Many people know the Crystal Ballroom as a live-music venue and dance hotspot (everybody from Little Richard, Marvin Gaye, James Brown to the Grateful Dead have performed there); fewer know that it is a truly fabulous place for a wedding reception.

Corporate and Business Headshot Portfolio

We shoot Business Portraits and Headshots in our Portland studio, or on location anywhere in the Pacific Northwest.

Starting over a decade ago, working in Albany, New York, Paul and Brenda developed a reputation as the “go-to” photographers for creative business portraits that clearly communicate confidence, friendliness, professionalism, trustworthiness, integrity, accessibility, intelligence — whatever the specific qualities and personality traits you need to project in your headshots. Now based in Portland, OR, we are continuing to grow our business with an eye to the same qualities — with just a little Portland twist!

Call us at (503) 799-9802 to schedule your headshot session.

The Happy Couple: Together and Alone

“The Happy Couple” is one of our favorite categories of wedding photography. Whether posed or captured spontaneously, these photos reflect personal moments of happiness and joy. Images like these are an essential part of any set of wedding photos created by Grupp and Rose Photography.


Getting Ready!

The “Getting Ready” time is the calm before the storm. Whether leisurely or rushed, the rituals of getting ready spent with parents, close friends and family represent the last moments of single life, and everyone is aware that in a few hours, a few minutes, the couple will be making a public commitment that will forever change the nature of so many long-standing relationships.
