I had such an amazing afternoon with these two for a windy but beautiful engagement session at Cape Kiwanda on the Oregon Coast. I’ve always loved this spot, with its gorgeous rock formations and stunning views from the top of the dunes, and I was so excited when John and Paulina suggested it for their engagement photos. There’s no better way to spend a sunset on the Pacific Ocean. . .
It’s been such a beautiful October for photos this year! Here’s a lovely little engagement session with Jenny and Charlie in Lower McCleay Park and Trail in Portland’s Forest Park. It was great to spend an afternoon with them and get to see their playful side! I’m looking forward to working with them again for their wedding next summer.
I was so excited when Lauren and Daniel got in touch with me about photographing their wedding. Daniel was the best man in a wedding I photographed this past summer, and he and his fiancée Lauren were about as much fun as wedding guests could be at that reception. I can't wait to photograph their wedding in Bend next summer. . .
Burt proposed to Emily earlier this week, and then we walked around the Portland Waterfront and took photos together. They were SO happy and relieved and excited and adorable. It was a great afternoon.
It was very icy at Cathedral Park when I met up with Jessalin, Kevin, and their adorable dog Eddie -- kids in the neighborhood were having a great time packing down the snow with their sleds and snowboards. So it was a festive atmosphere, but a little tough to get around. We still had a great time, though, and Eddie got to show off his adorable scarf, so it was all good. I can't wait for their wedding this summer!
Anna and Chris braved the cold and the ice for a (very quick) engagement session in the Columbia River Gorge today. Did I mention it was cold? It was cold. But oh-so-pretty! And everyone was in surprisingly good spirits. Looking forward to their (undoubtedly warmer) wedding this Fall!
I'm always excited for engagement sessions with my wedding couples, but I'm especially excited when I get to meet their puppies! (Casey + Morgan's adorable French Bulldog was a little more excited about the other dogs in the area than he was in me, but I didn't take it personally.) We had a lovely time walking around the city and getting some winter engagement photos!
How stinking cute are these two? It's been pretty rainy in Portland, Oregon, lately, so it took us a few weeks to get a day with reasonable weather. We worked it out, though, and I think it was worth the wait. Looking forward to their 2017 wedding!
