My name is Philip Chachka.

I began photographing weddings for friends in 1998 while I was getting my Art Degree from Oregon State University.  Since then I’ve shot over 100 wedding at various locations throughout Oregon and Washington.  I am now located in Portland and often shoot weddings in  locations from Eugene to Seattle and Bend to the Oregon and Washington Coasts.

I photograph weddings in a photojournalistic style – I want to tell your story.  My goal is to capture real emotions and facial expressions as they happen.  It’s that sparkle in the eye that I’m trying to catch.  It’s my philosophy that a wedding’s a celebration of people and the focus should be on the people.  The photographer should be able to get good pictures with ease and without too much distraction or inconvenience.

I would be happy to meet to show sample albums and discuss wedding plans and options.    Please let me know if you have any questions.
