The Painted Hills Engagement session // Lilli + Zach

 

you really can never go wrong with spending a day running around the painted hills in central oregon! the deep moody colors of the hills at golden hour are really unlike anything else i’ve ever seen!

these two babes ooo-ed and awww-ed right alongside me as we explored the gorgeous landscapes! this space makes epic photos easy, and the grandness just overflows in every image I captured!

I’d drive to central oregon any day to hang out here!! Especially when it involves wonderful humans to hang out with (and donuts, that was a nice touch - thanks zach & lilli)!! ;)

Definitely go explore it yourself!! Go check out more info here!

 

Central Oregon, Lava Beds Couple Session // Haley + Brendan

 

all the moody goodness for this bend lava bed shoot! one of the things i love most about central oregon is that there is BEAUTIFUL LANDSCAPE IS EVERYWHERE! The lava beds, the mounts, the lakes, the forests, the deserts… it has got it all.

haley and brendan hiked all over the sharp lava rock with me (we only fell down + tripped a couple times haha). we walked back to the car right after the sun went below the peaks in the distance, and the whole field of rocks felt like it was glowing. it was so magical!

So, if you’re all about that epic landscape vibe, hit me uuuuuup and let’s hit the road to central oregon!

 

Oregon, Rowena Crest Couples Shoot

 

Oregon, Columbia River Gorge golden hours never disappoint!

the wind was just perfect and the golden hour JUST right! dylan and arianna snuggled, kissed, frolicked, and soaked up every second of our shoot on the gorge! those views are worth every hour it takes to get there!!

 

California Clifftop elopement // Diana + Daniel

 

ohhhhh california, your golden clifftops and earthy tones steal my heart every time!!! after spending the afternoon wine tasting in Sonoma, i couldn't have pictured ending the day in a more magical way! running up and down these ocean cliffs was a DREAM. We sprinted down the warm sand beach and they kissed till the sun went down. Now, that's a day well spent!

california coast elopement // Half Moon Bay

 

Tacoma Waterfront Engagement session

 

These two!! A huge reason I add complimentary engagement sessions to my wedding packages is to make sure we have a chance to HANG OUT and just have fun so we're not strangers on the wedding day! And these two wonderful people are such a prime example - we had soooo much fun running around the tacoma waterfront! Their wedding isn't until September, but I happen to run into them at another wedding they were guests at in Portland, and it was like seeing friends!! That's what I want it to be like!! I want to hear about your wedding, but also JUST ABOUT YOU TWO! I want to hear what you do for fun, learn about what makes you excited, I really do mean it when I say I want to hear your stories! So, definitely take me up on that engagement session, and I promise it'll be super fun! 

 

Skogafoss // Iceland Waterfall Couples session

 

majestic feels like an understatement for this Iceland waterfall. it was absolutely incredible and I could have stayed there all day just watching it and listening to its powerful force. 

shooting with these two love bugs at the foot of something so beautiful was pure magic! we were soaked from the spray, but giddy as ever!

 

Icelandic Airplace Frolicking

 

Iceland, you are as beautiful as everyone says! these massive, open landscapes take your breath away (both because they are AMAZING, but also because it's windy as heck haha)! I would frolick on an Icelandic black sand beach or an abandon plane wreck any day!

 

John Day Fossil Bed Elopement

 

Worth every second of a 10 hour driving day to hang out with these two at this AMAZING location!

Central oregon has so many little gems for eloping! there are just so many spaces with epic locations that it makes me giddy! andddd, blue sheep rock was just one of so many!

Oregon, ya keep blowing me away!!
