Who is Carlos?
I am a Fine Art Film Wedding Photographer based out of Portland Oregon. I am so blessed to be a part of the most memorable moments in so many people’s lives. I am moved by sincerity, gestures of purity, and the disappearing value of the tangible. My desire as an artist is to create photos that are full of life and express beauty in an honest way. For this reason, I choose to photograph your wedding in an organic nature mixing film and digital photography. This allows me to slow down and turn my eye to detail in order to document moments that are meaningful. I graduated from college as a civil engineer in 2007. Soon after, I became a licensed professional engineer, where I learned the importance of detail, precision, and organization. I have worked as a photographer since 2012 and I incorporated those additional skill sets to my workflow. All of the couples I get to work with really enjoy that I have that previous training.

In a more personal note, I am married to my amazing Finnish goddess, Athina. We call Portland Oregon our home, but we can’t seem to stay grounded for too long. We love to travel, see new places, and meet new people; sometimes just spontaneously. If we are not home, you will most likely find us photographing pretty things or on an adventure… still photographing pretty things (we are working on a personal blog, keep an eye out for that). We serve an amazing God who has blessed us immensely, and we pour our soul in what we do. I really enjoy hearing stories of how couples meet and how they want to make an everlasting commitment to each other. I would love to meet you and hear your story. Please, send us a note here, we look forward to hearing from you!
I think photography is eyegasmic | I bought my first camera when I was 10 | I paid with 50 coke caps and 20 pesos | My guilty pleasure: old reruns of The Wonder Years | I really enjoy jazz music | My favorite band is MuteMath | I’m a civil engineer, and a physicist… yes I do love math | I love the smell of coffee, but no so much the taste | But I still enjoy getting coffee with people | I was born in Mexico | Despite contrary belief I don’t like spicy food | My extended family is enormous | I married a Finnish goddess by the name of Athina | My full name is Juan Carlos Hernández Chávez
