This sweet, sweet couple is getting married in August. Last December, I was heading up to Portland, OR and had time for an engagement session with Taylor and Justin! We started their Portland Engagement Session at Forest Park, then made our way to Downtown Portland near Pioneer Square for some cool dusk lighting and focused on the Christmas lights that surrounded us.
One of my favorite things to do during engagement sessions is ask the couple their proposal story. About halfway through our time at Forest Park, we were walking from one beautiful spot to the next, and they took turns filling in the story of how he asked. When they were done, I had them hang out in a long embrace. You could tell they could feel all of the feels. There’s something about re-living a moment like that with the one you love. There is so much depth in relationships.
It’s fantastic to have a job where I can endlessly explore the adventure of love.
I can’t wait to photograph their wedding at The Jupiter, which is an urban boutique hotel in Downtown Portland. It’s going to be somethin’ else.
