Columbia River Gorge Styled Shoot

Columbia River Gorge

Elopement Inspiration - September 2016

This shoot was such a dream and I was very lucky to be able to work with several talented vendors for this project who helped ensure everything came together flawlessly! I planned this shoot with an autumn theme, which meant deep dark colors, moody lighting, and a breathtaking location - everything I would have wanted had my own wedding been in September instead of July. We shot in the Columbia River Gorge which, if you haven’t already noticed, is one of my absolute favorite spots. I wanted to put something together for this shoot that had a simple, almost vintage aesthetic. Everyone who participated was from Portland (or just outside) in an effort to keep things close to home and support local small businesses.

This shoot was a joy to organize and plan while I was hanging in that limbo between ending teaching and starting school myself. It is always fun and rejuvenating to work with other creative minds.
