  • Engagement Photography At Beacon Rock And Cape Horn

    Hannah and Graham chose Cape Horn and Beacon Rock for their engagement session locations. Cape Horn was one of the first hikes they went on together. Graham took Hannah there on their third date. Nice move! The views at Cape Horn are gorgeous. Beacon Rock is close so it seemed like a cool second location. […]

  • Painted Hills Engagement Session At Sunset

    The Painted Hills is one of my favorite engagement session locations. The hills for which the landscape is named are gorgeous and otherworldly with their colorful striations. A part of me wishes that The Painted Hills was closer to Portland, so I could shoot engagement sessions there more often. But the benefit to it being […]

  • Government Cove Adventure Engagement Session

    I scheduled Kennedy and David’s engagement session at Government Cove several months ago and we kept having to postpone because of the weather. In the grand scheme of things, I’m really glad that we decided to wait because we were gifted with a stunning evening and a secret patch of purple flowers that I found […]

  • Smith Rock Engagement Photography Smith Rock Engagement Photography

    Smith Rock is one of my favorite locations for photographing engagement sessions. The landscape is seriously epic. It’s also very accessible, and you don’t have to hike a bajillion miles to get amazing views. During our initial meeting, Zarina and Chris told me how they had gotten engaged on a mountaintop in the Dolomites. I […]

  • Hoyt Arboretum Engagement Session Hoyt Arboretum Engagement Session

    The Redwood Deck in Hoyt Arboretum is one of my favorite places in Washington Park for an engagement session. I often find myself returning to this spot. The red color of the giant sequoia trees’ bark lends the forest a warm glow that’s incredibly peaceful, and standing on the deck being surrounded by these redwoods is […]

  • Tamanawas Falls Engagement Photography Tamanawas Falls Hike Engagement Session

    This was not only my first time shooting an engagement session at Tamanawas Falls but also my first time visiting, and boy am I glad I came across it because it was a treat. Since the fires in the gorge last year I’ve had to search for new photo shoot locations, and Tamanwas Falls was […]

  • Clackamas River Engagement Photography Clackamas River Engagement Photography

    I photographed Emily and Dave’s engagement session deep into no phone reception zone along a beautiful portion of the Clackamas River. We arranged to connect at a little country store, the only one around for miles, just in case we were to miss each other for some reason at the trail they had chosen. I […]

  • Columbia River Gorge Engagement Photography Columbia River Gorge Engagement Session

    Believe it or not, today’s session on the blog is the first engagement that I’ve photographed in the Columbia River Gorge since the Eagle Crest fires consumed and closed down so many of my favorite trails and shooting locations. Luckily, the ever dependable Latourell Falls is still open, and Melissa and Adam really wanted to […]

  • Cathedral Park Pittock Mansion Engagement Photography Engagement Photography At Cathedral Park And Pittock Mansion

    Last fall, I photographed Angela and Jeremy’s engagement session at Cathedral Park and the Pittock Mansion, and we struck gold with the perfect day. It was still early enough in the year that the sun was out and it was plenty warm but there was a pleasant briskness to the wind, and the autumn leaves […]

  • Dallas Texas Arboretum Engagement Photography Dallas Arboretum Engagement Photography

    Last fall, I got to travel to Dallas, Texas, to photograph Jeffrey and Patricia’s engagement session at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden. Even though I’ll be photographing their wedding this summer in Portland, I was lucky to be able to photograph their engagement session because they live in Dallas. However, I was already going […]

  • Woodlawn Washington Family Farm Engagement Session Woodland, Washington Family Farm Engagement Session

    I photographed Christine and Kyle’s engagement session last fall at Christine’s family farm in Woodland, Washington. When I arrived, Christine’s dad was working on renovating the old barn on the property. They plan to incorporate some of the barn wood into their wedding day decorations, which I think is a great idea, because the existing […]
