This engagement shoot was focused on capturing the adventure that so embodies this couples relationship. Jeff and Jill crave adventure. Some of their most recent excursions include Zion National Park, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon. On one hike they encountered both a rattlesnake and a black bear on the same trail and as you can see, they came out unscathed and ready for more! I think it’s safe to say that together, they’re unstoppable. Being avid hikers, it was only fitting that Jeff popped the question while they were out on a new trail. He asked Jill if she would go on life’s big adventure with him for the rest of their lives and as you may have guessed, she said YES!
All that said, we searched for the perfect outdoor location for their engagement session; a place filled with adventure yet entirely romantic. This gorgeous spot on the Deschutes River in Tumwater, Washington couldn’t have been more fitting.
It wasn’t until after my first son was born that I realized the true significance of an image; the ability to document a moment in time before it is gone forever. My goal is to capture the moments that are simply too beautiful to be put into words, and instead, put them into images that will last a lifetime. Wherever a person is in their life’s journey, I truly believe it is worth documenting. I’m a wedding and portrait photographer with a passion for love stories; whether it’s a wedding day or the indescribable love a mother feels for her unborn baby. My photography style focuses on capturing natural, timeliness images, driven by emotion and focused on small, yet significant moments.
