Hey There!

My name is Trung and I'd like to introduce myself as a photographer, as a friend, as a Coffee lover, and maybe just the photo guy.

As a Photographer: Wedding photography is my full-time work, commitment, and passion. I can't tell you the joy that I get when I'm faced with the challenge of making sure that your day is captured the best way it can be. Every wedding is unique, every couple is important to me, and I can't imagine myself being anything else and the wedding photographer that wants to take care of everyone. 

As a friend: I hiked the Appalachian trail, I traveled from the east coast to the west coast with only a half filled car trunk with Portland Oregon in my sights, and if we wanna fight just ask me how I feel about Windows VS. Mac  computers.

As a Coffee Lover: There is a strong possibility that I re-located to the other side of the country and made my home in Portland Oregon because of the coffee.

As a Photo Guy: Photography degree From King University, 10 + years of Photography experience, and a second degree that I do not use at all, but it did pay for college so I am not really complaining at this point.

What I do

I had a very important professor tell me as I was getting my formal education in photography that "People just want to know that they will be taken cared of, so remember that you are always talking to a person that has had as many ups and downs as you have."

That inspired a couple of standards in my photography:

1- My engagement shoots are free with any wedding booking, because it gives me a chance to get to know you guys.

2 - Travel is very important because you get to know this one floating rock that we all hang out on.

3 - The photos that I am taking are for you, your current and future family, and everyone that loves you. These are important moments that turn into heirlooms.

I get the incredible opportunity to take that trust, and turn it into something that makes you cry, makes your friends envious, and your family never forget.

What is Trung Phan Photography?

My style is all about bringing out the gems in your wedding day. Small or large things that may be forgotten, missed,or not easily remembered. I also enjoy a little bit of energy in photos. Using both flash and natural light to get an organic and dynamic feel to the photos.

Some of the first things we will do is get a feel for your wedding style and design. Pinterest is a big help, if there are wedding albums that inspire you then we will look into those as well.

All weddings are covered by me! An assistant may be there as well but a majority of your images are captured by the head photographer to provide a unified vision and consistency throughout the day.

Frequently asked questions

Q. How did we get here?

A college major that let me be my own boss and make art for people that you can't help but be friends with. Cross country travel and relocation, adventures, people, food, art, coffee, and just a little bit of stubbornness to the idea of getting rusty keeps me moving.

Q. What's your favorite food?

I have been known to drive out of an airport on my way to a wedding the next day for a banging Croissant nearby in between flights. Apparently that was a new one for the Uber Driver.

Q. Kryptonite?

I had no idea until 2021 that I was afraid of scary clowns. Normal clowns are fine.

Q. Who or what inspires you.

There are a lot of superstars in the photo world, and a few of them are wedding photographers. They have built their brand image on their ability to bring out the best in beautiful spots. Cristiano Ostinelli is an incredible photographer that defined the look of luxury in the European photography world. Jose Villa is the best of the best in weddings. And Nirav Patel is a master of personal and quiet storytelling. Bek Smith has inspired huge portions of this websites design, and I am huge fan of the work of most of the sony camera ambassadors.

Q. Favorite piece of camera gear?

For some reason most photographers will avoid this question but I absolutely believe that we as photographers need our gear to create art. My most important piece of the set is the 35mm 1.4 G Master Lens. Some fun other things that have made my life easier are things like the Peak Design messenger bag and camera clip.
