JC Envisions Photography
Greg and Amanda approached me a few days after he popped the question and told me they wanted to do something special and meaningful for their engagement pictures. They have a lot of memories hiking around the Columbia Gorge and just the outdoors, in general. Greg even proposed near the river. They wanted to continue the same theme with their pictures. While they were thinking about the perfect place, I proposed a location on the Columbia Gorge that is beautiful, with the minor detail that it is a 45 minute drive from Portland, then a two hour hike. I never thought they would actually agree to do it. They were happy, but I was even elated. I finally found an excuse to photograph a couple in such a majestic place. We put on boots, hiking gear, and we threw backpacks on our backs with snacks and clothes for the couple to change once there. It was a hot and strenuous hike, but the sunset was breathtaking; one of my favorite shoots for sure. My fiancé came along and we made it a double date, watching the sun fall behind the river and the mountains.
