Tilikum Bridge Engagement Photos – Courtney & Andrew

Tilikum Bridge Engagement Photos – Courtney & Andrew

Courtney and Andrew's Tilikum Crossing Bridge photos along the Eastbank Esplanade was about as fun and meaningful as engagement photos get. We started off on the rooftop at the KEX Hotel in SE Portland catching up about life and all of its challenges and blessings. It was a sweet summer day around 6 pm and we found some unique slivers of light everywhere along the back streets of Portland. We ventured down narrow streets where there was a gentle summer breeze and directional light that cast...

Lavender Valley Engagement Photos – Dao & Minh

Lavender Valley Engagement Photos – Dao & Minh

We couldn't have had a more beautiful day with Dao and Minh for their Lavender Valley Engagement Photos in Hood River, Oregon. The excitement was high since none of us have ever visited the Lavender Valley Farms. The lavender fragrance, rich purple shades, buzzing bees, bright blue sky, and magnificent view of Mt. Hood was stunning. Mid-July proved to be the perfect time as the lavender was in full bloom. The sun was setting just right offering all the dramatic light to cast across the...

The foundation of their relationship is so solid. They knew that their wedding would be an expression of their...

Latourell Falls Engagement Photos – Brendan & Stephanie

We got chills when Brendan asked us to capture his secret surprise proposal to his girlfriend Stephanie for their Latourell Falls Engagement Photos. Real proposals are absolutely thrilling. There are so many unknown variables. Nerves are all over the map. The person proposing. The person being proposed to.  Photographers hiding in the bushes while being ever-present and ready to capture every fraction of a second. There is nothing like it.  It's such a rich environment for capturing great...

Iceland Engagement Photo Ideas

Our adventures exploring Iceland engagement photo ideas opened our eyes to a whole new world of wild landscapes, rich history, and language that makes us want to go back every year and learn more. It's the land of fire and ice. It has one of the most geologically and volcanically active landscapes in the world. Can you believe it, this place has over 100 volcanoes. We have a growing curiosity and much to discover and learn. We can clearly see why the Game of Thrones was filmed here among so...

Moab Elopement – Abby & Bruno

Moab Elopement – Abby & Bruno

Abby and Bruno drove from Virginia to Utah for an epic Moab elopement and a mind-blowing adventure. The first part of their road trip expedition spanned over 5 days and met us in Arches National Park.  We were to meet them early morning at 4:45 am for an intimate sunrise ceremony surrounded by a red-rock wonderland. At that hour it feels like you are on the moon, under an infinite sky with twinkling stars, a gentle breeze, and what felt like loud silence at the bottom of the ocean. Arches is...

Kansas City Elopement – Rebekah & Taylor

Kansas City Elopement – Rebekah & Taylor

Rebekah and Taylor's Kansas City elopement began with lots of zoom calls. We love to ask questions, listen, and get to know people. We are always happy to talk about all of our technical skills and approach to photography, but honestly getting to know our couples is our secret sauce to capturing a great story. When Rebekah and Taylor said they were "looking for artistic photojournalists" and wanted a free-flowing organic experience we knew we were a great fit. When we arrived in Kansas City,...

Oregon Coast Elopement – Crystal & Phillip

Oregon Coast Elopement – Crystal & Phillip

Crystal and Phillips Oregon Coast elopement at Ecola State Park on Indian Beach was a sunny day surrounded by many rainy dark days before and after. Tree and I have been pinching ourselves because somehow "wedding magic" shows up on most of the weddings we've been honored to photograph. Perhaps it's our rule to fully embrace whatever we are given and photograph the light and mood to its fullest however it turns out. Our motto is to love every moment, no matter what! It always works out,...
