I’m sharing Mykael and Evan’s engagement session today, and I could NOT be more excited!!  Last month they came up from Eugene where Evan’s in law school to spend an evening at Champoeg State Park.  We started out in the field, chatted about their plans for their wedding, and then headed down to the dock.  […]

Shana and Josh!  Can we just talk for a second about how AMAZING these two are??  When we had their consultation before booking via Skype a few months ago, they weren’t sure they’d be able to do the engagement session that I gift to all of my couples because they live in Utah.  Well, about […]

They got engaged at the top of the tallest sand dune in Pacific City, so it was only fitting that we’d head to Cape Kiwanda for Colby and Taylor’s engagement session.  Colby’s family spent a lot of time in Pacific City as he was growing up, and it’s a place they’ve both come to love.  […]

Jenna and Armando kicked off engagement session season last weekend and it was PERFECT!!  We’d waited a few weeks to get dry weather, and just before Valentine’s Day, it happened!!  We went to Champoeg State Park because these two are practically neighbors with me here in Newberg and this beautiful location was five minutes from […]

When we first started planning their engagement session, Shellie and Kevin wanted to be sure we’d be someplace where we could show their love of the outdoors–especially somewhere near the water.  We chose Champoeg State Park for their barn, garden, and river access–and what a fun time we had there!

Over the Independence Day weekend, I was lucky enough to spend some time with Ryan and Miya for their engagement session at Dawson Creek Park in Hillsboro!  It was a whirlwind weekend for them as they worked family celebrations and wedding to-dos in between travel schedules, but I’m so glad we were able to make […]

If you’ve been following the blog for a while, you know that Cooper Mountain Nature Park in Aloha is one of my very favorite places to shoot at: there’s tall grass, views of the valley, and it gets the very BEST sunset light!  I was so thrilled Angela and Steven chose that location for their […]
