Columbia Gorge Waterfall Engagement Session. I don't care what TLC says - I will forever be chasing waterfalls.
The gorge has always had a special place in my heart - especially after we almost got married just down the street from where this session took place. Long story short about that: We were supposed to have our wedding at Bridal Veil Lakes. Unfortunately, the Eagle Creek Fire kept us from doing so. We were displaced from our venue just a couple of weeks prior to our date. Luckily, the venue was saved from the fire and we still had an incredible wedding day. Nathan and I are looking forward to the day when we will head back. Possibly for a vow renewal? I'm here for it.
Back to these cuties and their engagement session! Stephanie and Kyle are located in the Portland area. Leading up to their wedding date, we set up their engagement session. These photos were perfect for their save the dates, invitations, and they framed some to use as decor on their wedding day, too. I love to see it!
Waterfalls are so dramatic and powerful. It's incredibly exhilarating to stand in front of one, simply allowing the mist to fall on and all around you. It is quite the feeling!
We decided to go on an adventure for their engagement session to a waterfall in the woods. The particular waterfall we chose is called Dry Creek Falls. About 4.5 miles roundtrip and an elevation gain of nearly 900ft. It gets your blood pumping without exhausting you completely.
After our shoot was over, we headed back down the trail to our cars. I saw the beauty on our way up the trail and had a mental note about what the light must look like heading back. That gut feeling I had wasn't wrong! I didn't put my camera away as we walked back down so I could be ready. We got gorgeous sunset light poking through the trees. I realized then how much I seriously love this trail. It was simply a perfect way to celebrate love and new beginnings.
