Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

Brooke + Daniel: An Engagement Session along the Columbia River Gorge

May 11, 2021

I love our Pacific Northwest and all the beauty it offers! Especially when we get to visit the Columbia River Gorge! It’s always absolutely breathtaking here! This particular area was over on the Washington side close to Stevenson and just a gorgeous as I remember. This stunning engagement session with Brooke and Daniel was an adventure as we drove up and down this part of the gorge looking for the perfect spot! They totally killed this session and these colors and the light were EVERYTHING!

Brooke and Daniel are such a super cute couple with a thrill for the outdoors. They are so laid back and easy going and did I mention ADORABLE?? This session was the first time they had professional photos done together and they had a blast! Daniel proposed right on Cannon Beach during a family trip. He was showing me photos that he asked a nearby photographer to take and what a sweet moment!!

I had several favorite moments during this Columbia River Gorge session. But one of the best parts was hearing their reactions as I would occasionally turn my camera around to show them what I was freaking out about haha! I just had to share with them how cute they were and they would get just as excited as I was! For anyone that’s worked with me, you know how excited I get when I shoot. Especially if we get to shoot at such a gorgeous location. I’m so blessed to be able to work with some amazing people that are not only super fun but super beautiful! I am so thrilled to capture their wedding day at Langdon Farms this summer!
