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!

Married at Sauvie Island, Honeymoon in the Wallowas

As much as I love weddings, for my own I just wanted to do something low-key and small. So, we eloped in the rain at Sauvie Island and took a short trip to Joseph, OR for our honeymoon. Thank you to The Jennings Hotel for providing such a gorgeous place to stay, and a special shout out to Renee for being sweet enough to share one of her morel spots with us! We had a wonderful time and I have a feeling we'll be back next year.

I take pictures on my phone constantly, but somehow, even as a professional photographer, I never seem to remember to shoot with my big-girl gear, so it was really nice to shoot some personal photos for a change. Some of those below...
