We created Studio 1904 to support creatives, especially photographers in need of a beautiful and flexible natural light studio in rainy Portland.

The studio sits in a historic building with thoughtfully preserved details and features: tall ceilings and full-length windows filter light into the space year-round; exposed brick and bright white stucco walls offer a mix of textures; and the 1,500 square foot open floor plan can adapt to any shoot you can dream up.

Studio 1904 is a project by beloved event company Something Borrowed Portland, and has been thoughtfully furnished to support photographers with great resources for bridal, newborn and maternity portraits, boudoir and editorial work and styled or catalogue shoots. In addition to props, decor and furnishings included in the rental price, photographers can also access Something Borrowed’s inventory at a significant discount.
