Chris Brodell is a Wedding Photographer in Portland, Oregon.

I photograph engagement sessions, weddings, and elopements in a natural, candid, documentary style throughout Portland and the Pacific Northwest. I create images that are full of light, love, and vivid colors. Your wedding photographer is one of the most important details of your wedding and being part of that means so much to me. With over a decade of wedding experience, I have the expertise to create images that you will share for years to come. Below you will find information on my approach to wedding photography and pricing. I can’t wait to learn more about you and your wedding day!



I love taking photos, being outside, and creating meaningful experiences for people.

I approach every wedding day ready to have fun and excited to document your day and tell your story. I offer a professional experience throughout the entire process and I'm always friendly and easy to work with.

I love photography and feel lucky that I get to do something I love as a job. I bring this perspective to every wedding that I shoot. I believe in having a positive attitude and pride myself on being flexible and easy to work with.

As a wedding photographer with a photojournalistic approach, I document the day as it unfolds. I know when to pull back and let a moment occur naturally but I also know when to step in, lend a hand, and provide direction. I work closely with my clients to help them feel comfortable in front of the camera. I know that a wedding can be stressful and it’s important to me that your photographer is the least of your worries.

Chris was incredibly easy to work with, answered all of our questions during the planning phase, and executed everything flawlessly the day of. He has a great eye for capturing the best light and scoping out interesting and unique spots for photos. He’s also really reasonably priced. When we shared the final photos with my mother-in-law, she declared that they were the best wedding photos she had ever seen.

Do you shoot engagement sessions?

Yes! I love working with couples before their wedding day. It’s a great opportunity to get to know each other and for couples to have some exposure to being in front of a camera. It’s also a fun way to highlight your life together in Portland. There are so many great locations like Mt. Tabor, Powell Butte, and the International Rose Test Garden.

What are your favorite types of wedding venues?

As a natural light photographer I love shooting outdoor weddings. Venues like Cathedral Park, Hoyt Arboretum, and Abernethy Center are all amazing. There are also plenty of indoor venues with great natural light too such as Union/Pine, Ecotrust, and Castaway.
