I cannot say enough good things about Paul and Brenda! I searched for photographers for quite awhile knowing that my pictures were one of the most important aspects of my wedding day. After reading nothing but great reviews and going over their pat work I decided to meet with... Read More Paul and Brenda, and knew at that first meeting they were the perfect duo to photograph our wedding. They offered great advice and made the process truly about us, and I had constant communication with them leading up to our wedding day. When they arrived on our wedding day they got straight to work and Brenda was so good about helping me stay calm as I was getting ready and captured so many special moments during that time such as my dress reveal to my father. More impressively after the ceremony they handled our very large bridal party and even larger family with ease during group photos . We got through all my requested shots and did some more fun bridal party pictures that they suggested which are now some of my favorite. They also worked in so much time to get photos of just my husband and I at different locations all around our venue and at different points throughout the night to get the best lighting. They captured each point of our wedding perfectly and there was so much detail in the shots. Most importantly, our photos came out BEAUTIFUL! I received so many edited photos from beginning to end of our day and have received a ton of compliments from family and friends on our photos. Paul and Brenda are not only professional but take the time to become really involved and personal about your special occasion . I made the best possible choice with them and would recommend them to any future bride looking for perfect pictures to cherish forever.

All in all we couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of wedding photographers! Paul and Brenda are amazing at what they do and it truly shows in their work!

Brenda and Paul did an amazing job on our wedding. We wanted someone we were comfortable with, that was professional, and that would take the lead on getting the pictures without us stressing about anything, and Grupp & Rose more than accomplished this. They are so talented... Read More and professional and there isn't a single moment of the night that I wish had been captured that wasn't.

I highly recommend Grupp & Rose Photography for any couple in the Portland area! They were a pleasure to work with start to finish. They shot both our engagement photos and our wedding. Anyone who wants beautiful pictures that capture the moments and emotions of your event needs... Read More to book them ASAP! They take pictures that tell your story. I stumbled across Grupp & Rose when I was unhappy with the photographer I planned on using. Paul & Brenda were quick to respond to my emails and were very informative. They worked with my budget and time frame (both were small). They picked the perfect location for our engagement shoot, and they were amazing to work with! We felt comfortable from the moment we met, and they made the experience a fond memory. The pictures turned out amazing as well. It looks like we stepped out of a fairy tale. They walked us through how to prep for the big day, and calmed this bride's nerves that everything would work out well. And when the wedding day arrived, I couldn't have asked for more professionalism. Paul shot the boys while Brenda stayed with us girls (since we didn't do a first look). They bent over backwards to capture every precious moment. They gave the perfect amount of direction, and they kept us on a very tight timeline without making us feel rushed. The pictures were once again stunning! (Plus, we had them by the time we got back from our honeymoon.) We relive every moment of our wedding day when we flip through our pictures. They ensured that every moment was captured. I can't say enough good things about them. I have had many guests tell me how much they enjoyed our photographers and the pictures. Don't waste your time with anyone else!

Loved working with these photographers. They definitely have a passion for what they do. We had so many amazing photos at our wedding, he Paul definitely captured lots of moments.

Paul and Brenda were very down to earth, professional and fun to work with. We really wanted to find photographers who could capture the candid moments of our special day in a more photojournalistic style. The other photographers we checked out were more expensive, and seemed... Read More more focused on the artistic photographs, like the more posed shots, and photos of the rings, the dress, etc, which we were less interested in. They were very generous with their time preceding the wedding, to meet with us, answer questions, and gave us plenty of advice and tips on do's and don'ts for the actual day. And we were very pleased with how the photos turned out - which were a varied combination of candids and posed shots (per their recommendation, for our family members, who would want them). The turnaround was quite fast, and they provided us with their favorite edited shots, as well as an entire gallery of all of the photos to choose from, that we could download and order prints from, share with our family and guests, and favorite, for the album which is included with our package, that they assemble for us. We were very lucky to have have found Paul and Brenda to capture our wedding day, and we would highly recommend them.

What I liked best about these guys were their down to earth and calm attitudes. While I was slightly panicked they laid out helpful hints about what I can have done for my big day. Their experience really showed and I felt like I was in great hands. My wedding was fairly... Read More small and simple so I only had Brenda come out to shoot it. She was marvelous! She was personable with my guests but kept everyone on time and moving so we could get as many shots as possible.

They emailed teasers from the day really quickly and didn't have to wait very long for the full color and black and white album to be posted online. It was a great experience and I would happily use them again.
