Nothing beats spending the day photographing a beautiful couple surrounded by lush Portland greenery! Lauren and Ben met up with me at Hoyt Arboretum which, as we soon realized, was much larger than we all thought. It took us about 15 minutes of searching just to find each other amidst its large array of trails and walkways. But, once we came together it couldn't have gone more splendid. We explored a few walking trails and captured photos of their love along the way. The once-puffy clouds began to sprinkle half way though our session, but it didn't faze them one bit. They just ran to the car and whipped out their yellow ducky umbrella to save the day until it passed; which, only resulted in even more sweet engagement photos of them underneath an adorable umbrella.
Congratulations on your engagement Ben & Lauren! I can't wait to photograph your wedding later this summer! :)
