Studio 1904 celebrates love and community in our intimate event and wedding venue in St. Johns, Portland. Built in 1904, the historic building was home to Portland Woolen Mills before becoming a multidimensional space that’s home to Portland artists, makers and local companies.

A charming alternative to large, impersonal venues, Studio 1904 has beautiful original windows, charming exposed brick and a minimalist concrete floor - lending itself to romantic decor and modern touches alike. In addition to celebrations of all kinds, the space hosts photographers as a natural light studio and the wider creative community as a venue for classes and workshops.

Our studio is a project of Something Borrowed Portland, a beloved event rental and design company, and the studio draws on Something Borrowed’s experience creating curated events with thoughtful decor options and detailed touches.

We invite you into Studio 1904 to join our creative community, to collaborate with us on engaging workshops and beautiful photo shoots. We can’t wait to help you create your vision.

Natural Light Studio

We created Studio 1904 to support creatives, especially photographers in need of a beautiful and flexible natural light studio in rainy Portland. Learn more about our 1,500 square-foot studio featuring exposed brick and bright white walls, beautiful decor and year-round natural light.


We’re honored to be a part of Portland’s thriving creative community and one of the most important things we do at Studio 1904 is support our fellow creatives with workshops, conferences and learning events. Take a look at our upcoming classes or book the space for your next class or workshop.
