Wendy + Byron Wedding Anniversary - Central Oregon - Pronghorn Resort

When Wendy let us know she was planning a surprise 10 year wedding anniversary for Byron and asked us to secretively photograph it, we were all in. She knew exactly where she wanted to surprise him too, in a 45-foot canyon and open lava tube along Pronghorn Resort which is one of the most unique golf holes in the world and the home of many great horned owls. Our friendship with Wendy and Byron goes back 9 years and since they are also wedding photographers we felt even more honored to capture this milestone moment for them.

Bereka & AJ Mt Hood - Ski Bowl - Engagement

Bereka and AJ met in Government Camp on Mt Hood and met skiing. They have inside connections up at Ski Bowl and were given special access to the slopes for a fun and adventurous day walking through the forest paths, hill sides, private lakes, and warming hut at Ski Bowl. It was one of those last sunny days in the Northwest where the warmth is still in the air with a hit of a cool Autumn edge. Our favorite time of year!

Ale + Julie Proposal - Portland Waterfront - Engagement

There is nothing like photographing a proposal. Butterflies are everywhere from the person proposing, the photographer(s), and of course the person being proposed to! When Ale asked us to capture his proposal to his girlfriend Julie we immediately started brainstorming ideas. After long discussions about “how” to shoot this without being seen and keeping it intimate Ale decided to do it outside along the Portland waterfront. The spaciousness of outside was the best location since there were less people, the dynamic of the rain and the Fall leaves were also still vibrant.
