Wedding and Portrait Photographer capturing smiles in Portland, Oregon and beyond.

About Federico X.

Levels 1.jpg

Hey, I’m Federico!

A Portland, oregon based wedding & portrait photographer.

When I started photographing people in 2015, I set out to make every person who swore they were “awkward in front of the camera” feel like a million bucks. I don’t care much for features or instagram trends but I do care about you and what you love.

Through smiles and kisses, I capture moments that will hopefully inspire you to remember and cherish those memories in a constantly busy world. Because of my graphic design background, you will find creative elements of negative space and clean composition in my photography. I gravitate towards warm natural light because I can’t think of anything sweeter than hugs and kisses out in the sun.

I know finding a wedding photographer can be daunting and sometimes intimidating, but I don’t bite! Reach out, I can’t wait to hear from you!

FAQ

 

What is it like working with you?

Fun and laid-back. If you need some direction, I’m here to help but once you get comfortable, you’ll find it much easier to be in front of the camera with your loved one. During the wedding day I’m helping any way I can and documenting the in-between moments.

How many hours do we need?

I offer three wedding collections that cover 6, 8 and 10 hours. About 90% of the weddings I shoot choose 10 hours of coverage, leaving enough time for a getting ready and a sweet exit but it really depends on how much you’ve got planned for the day.

When Can I see my wedding photos?

My turn around time for wedding photos is usually 5-7 weeks and usually send out previews within 48 hours. I deliver anywhere from 500-900 images through an online gallery called Pic-Time - where you can download, share and print all your photos.

 

Do you travel?

Absolutely and often! I offer a flat rate for travel weddings in the continental US and do custom collections for those overseas! You can find starting rates and where I’ll traveling to this year on my pricing page and if you have any more questions don’t hesitate to reach out!

Do you use backups?

Yes! I bring three cameras to each wedding as a backup and have a robust system in place for files at home and while I travel.

How do I book you?

Send in an inquiry, review and sign the contract and pay the retainer of $1,000 and you’ve booked your wedding photographer!

DO you do prints?

Yes! When I deliver your images through Pic-Time there is a “Shop” button where you can order prints, calendars, canvases and albums! The album designing process is so easy but if you need help, I am only an email away.
