Columbia River Gorge Engagement

 
 


I arrived to this shoot with anticipation & nervousness BUT left making sweet friends & boosting my confidence. For those of you non-photographers, its hard when you go through a dry spell of creativity, this was even rough after moving to the west coast. So I signed up for a styled shoot that was taking place in the gorgeous Columbia River Gorge! It had always been a dream to shoot at the gorge. In short, I loved connecting and networking with awesome vendors in the wedding industry in Portland. If you are looking for a location to shoot your engagement or elopement, this scenic area of the Columbia river is the best! The gorge makes for an epic sunset background!
