Columbia Gorge Engagement Inspiration – Lauren + John

I love when a shoot comes together flawlessly. When you have a vision and then it becomes reality. I also love getting to explore new locations and having an excuse to make a day trip. Any reason to get out of the city and disconnect is always welcomed. Our destination was the Columbia River Gorge, specifically Angels Rest. Located roughly 40 minutes away from Portland, OR on the scenic highway that runs alongside the Columbia River. After a 2.3 mile climb and a 1500′ elevation gain we made it to the top and scouted our locations. We had time to kill but that was good since there was a significant amount of hikers in the area that I wanted to wait for them to clear out before we got to shooting.

This engagement session is probably a little over due since John and Lauren have been married for quite some time. But after meeting Lauren recently I knew that the two of them would be an awesome couple to work with. I could tell they had the energy I love to work with on my engagement and couples sessions. It can be quite hard to enjoy the moment with your significant other when there’s a camera pointed at your face, but some how these two managed to ignore me enough to show some true expression and give me the look I was hoping for.

Once we had the light I wanted we got to work. And like I said before, these two made this shoot easy. It’s not a simple task to be intimate and playful on top of a mountain with my camera lens pointing at you. If you can move past the distraction and get lost in the moment then we have struck gold.

I’m in love with this set and I’m very excited to share it with you, take a look and enjoy! Leave a comment, share with your friends or pin this post or your favorite shots to your Pinterest!
