Columbia Gorge engagement excursions are some of our favorite times to capture creative photos. Inviting Karina and Christopher on an “adventure engagement date” in the Columbia Gorge was the perfect way to begin our journey together. It’s great because it offers us time to develop a dialogue with each other as a foundation for photographing their wedding. Every engagement adventure we go on is an expedition where we take time to naturally capture as many forms of light as possible while letting our couples play and interact through the backdrops. This makes for a free-flowing, fun experience and awesome photo inspiration to share for their upcoming wedding.
With Karina and Christopher we wandered along incredible waterfalls and cliffs and strolled along the wide-open Columbia Gorge sandy banks. Luck was on our side with one of those last spectacular Indian summer autumn days. A gorgeous red-pink sunset filled the sky as they walked solo into vast openness. Absolutely stunning. This adventure was the perfect way to get to know them before photographing their wedding at the Columbia Gorge Hotel & Spa.
