Liana + Ramon // Columbia River Gorge Couple's Session

Liana and Ramon were married over the winter in their home state of Minnesota, but they didn’t have any photos taken at the time. I was so honored to do this session for them while they were visiting family and friends in The Dalles! Liana wanted to do the shoot somewhere outdoorsy, near water, and I scouted this amazing spot a few weeks beforehand (you don’t have to twist my arm to get me to go exploring in the gorge!) It was a great location for our shoot, even if a little windy. And! The rain gods actually smiled down on me for once and the skies cleared up just in time to keep us dry!

Jeff and Shawna's Dreamy Wedding in the Mt. Hood National Forest

I don't normally cry at weddings....but this one got me. Jeff and Shawna's friends and family made the trek out to a very special place in the Mt. Hood Forest to celebrate their wedding day with them, and although there were a few bumps in the road (literally and figuratively), the ceremony (you know, just the most important part!!) could not have been more perfect.

Shawna found me through the Portland Hikers Facebook group and I hope to run into her, Jeff, and their pup, Willow on the trail someday!
