There have been many times when I will get requests to shoot on a client’s private property or property of a family member. It usually never disappoints here in the Pacific Northwest and the views are usually always gorgeous! The only downfall is that I end up falling in love with the place but obviously, because it’s private property, it’s a one and done deal. I can’t usually come back and say shoot all my family sessions there, haha! BUT this Gates, Oregon engagement session was actually an exception to that rule!
I was so blessed to have shot a wedding here at this private residence out in Gates last year. It had the most stunning view of the rolling hills and wide open spaces. Just gorgeous! So when Jessica and Bryan reached out to me about shooting their wedding and told me they were cousins of a bride and groom of mine from last year AND they wanted their engagement session done at the same location I shot the wedding, I was SO excited!!
Jessica grew up around this farm so it was extra special to her that we did their session here and of course, we had to get the cows in some of the shots! Jessica + Bryan were so cute and playful together! You could tell she really felt like she was home. I felt right at home with them during this Gates, Oregon engagement session. I can’t wait for their upcoming wedding day!!
If you love sentimental engagement session locations, take a look at where Anne Marie and Chris chose for theirs!
