Seaside is a cozy coastal town less than two hours from Portland. My wife and I took a road trip around the area when we first moved to the Pacific Northwest, but haven't been back since. This made me especially excited to photograph Alexa and Justin's wedding at McMenamins Gearhart Hotel. I love everything about McMenamins. Outside of the Gearhart Hotel, they run dozens of beautiful properties and spaces in Oregon and Washington. In the very near future when I'm hosting weddings on my own Smith Farm, I'll gladly give credit to McMenamins for being an inspiration of what gathering spots in the community should look like. Since Gearhart is a only few miles north of Seaside, intimate beaches and breathtaking views of the coast can be found everywhere. What a perfect destination to tie the knot in Oregon!
Congratulations to Alexa and Justin on throwing such wonderful wedding celebration. The energy from friends and family was contagious. This group was ready to party from the moment I started taking pictures ;)
My name is Cameron Smith, this is my studio and farm! We specialize in chicken portraits, cocktails, cannabis and dive bars.. Based in the ATL with frequent trips to Las Vegas and Portland Oregon, we like to city hop! Design, another thing we do at the farm! From photo books to below average art that consists mostly of ink drawings, we're creative folks. We're also crazy enough to be house photographers with Hogs & Heifers Saloon in Sin City AND Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans....We see some crazy shit! When not taking pictures of said crazy things, or planning a wedding celebration on a future ranch, you can find us in our garden with the dogs, cats and chickens!
Living the green life in St. Johns North Portland for now, the Smith Farm in Ellijay Georgia in our future??
Follow thy future farm, the journey will be fun!
