I’ve pretty much known Stephanie forever. Growing up, her younger sister and I were BFF’s. I was at their house every single weekend. This girl is family and I’m so thankful for her. When Steph and Jake contacted me to photograph their wedding, I was SO STOKED. I couldn’t fly up to Portland fast enough to photograph their engagement session. We went to a super pretty spot in the Columbia Gorge. We got to catch up and play in the strong wind gusts that would come through. They got to enjoy the gorgeous sunset together, and I got to document moments like these. These kind of sessions are a huge reminder to me of why I do what I do. It’s all about the couple. It’s all about the love.
