Shauna and Michael were long distance while dating, but planned a weekend to be together, just to shoot their engagement session. They picked the Columbia River Gorge for their photos, and I couldn’t have been more excited! After all, the gorge is one of my absolute favorite spots to shoot in Oregon! We planned to meet, for the first time, in the parking lot of Latourelle falls. When I looked across the parking lot, and saw a stunning girl in a flowy red dress walking my way, I knew instantly that this session was going to be one for the books! We spent the next couple hours wandering the historic Columbia River highway, dancing in the street, and watching the sun set at Crown Point. In a word, is was simply magical. These two definitely get the “best dressed award!” I mean LOOK at them!! Just gorgeous.
These two were so much fun to work with. Andrea is a super talented event planner, and owner of Wandera Weddings. I have had the privilege of getting to photograph many of her super fun, gorgeously decorated events though the years. She always looks adorable, and every event she does looks amazing, so I knew photographing her engagement photos would be no different. Andrea and Daniel love wine, and are even members at Stoller Vineyards. So naturally, it was fitting to shoot their engagement photos at a vineyard, with some wine in hand. Andrea planned out an entire little picnic setup, complete with cheese boards and a charcuterie spread. Wine was sipped, kisses were shared, and a whole lot of love was captured. Love these two so much!
Tracey & Mike are two of the sweetest, kindest, most genuinely beautiful people -- inside and out. Today I am thrilled to announce that their scenic Columbia River Gorge engagement session is being featured by A Paper Proposal!

The sudden blooming of Portland's cherry blossoms are always such a splendid sight to see. One day it still feels like winter, and then the next, all around the city hundreds of delicate, pastel pink blossoms sprout out to bring life and beauty to the city. Sokhorn and Jay timed their engagement session with the blooming of the cherry blossoms along the Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland. We started their session, beneath the soft petals that matched Sokhorn's pink tulle dress so well. Then later on, we transitioned their session to Cathedral Park to capture some portraits underneath the St. John's Bridge and it's iconic weeping willow tree. Engagement sessions like this remind me why I love living in Portland so much. Such breath-taking natural beauty, and with a couple this sweet and in love, it's no wonder their photos turned out so stunning.
