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?!

A Stunning Family along the Columbia River Gorge

December 13, 2023

Nestled between towering cliffs and majestic landscapes, the Columbia River Gorge offers a breathtaking backdrop for any session. I had the pleasure of capturing the beauty of this stunning family along the scenic shores of the Columbia River. They live out of state but visit family here in Oregon. This was the second session I was blessed to be able to capture for them while they visit! During their first session with me out at Cannon Beach, they only had their first daughter, Emma Kate. So I was thrilled to meet their newest addition!

As the sun dipped below the horizon, casting a warm golden glow across the river, the atmosphere was set for an unforgettable family session. The Columbia River Gorge, with its winding waterways and lush greenery, provided a natural canvas for this family to play, have fun, and create lasting memories.

The Columbia River Gorge

The location itself played a pivotal role in enhancing the beauty of the family session. The Columbia River Gorge, known for its cascading waterfalls and towering cliffs, offered a stunning backdrop for both candid and posed shots. Each frame captured not only the family’s love but also the awe-inspiring natural beauty that surrounded them. They definitely dressed the part as well! Their outfits couldn’t have been more perfect to get that soft, romantic vibe!

I loved watching them play with their girls and seeing their infectious smiles. To say that this family has model-like stunning good looks is an understatement! They are GORGEOUS! As the sun set behind the Gorge, it marked not just the end of a session but the beginning of a legacy immortalized in photographs. I count myself so blessed to be able to watch and capture their family grow!
