Shevlin Park Bend Oregon Engagement

- Travis and Lauren -

Travis and Lauren came over to Bend from the Portland area for their engagement session and while looking at them you might think it was nice and warm out... I will tell you, it was not! I was really happy to be behind the camera with my jacket on and so happy that Lauren was so amazing even though I am sure she was freezing! We started out at Shevlin Park, one of my favorites here in town. The bare aspen trees make a beautiful background! We then ventured into downtown for some more urban photos, finishing up on top of a parking structure at sunset. Loved it.

Forest Park, Portland Oregon Engagement

- Brandon and Jordan -

Alright, Portland may be known for being rainy, but when it isn't raining it is incredible. Such a drastic climate change from Bend that it constantly amazes me with how lush and green. In the Spring when it is still dry and brown in Central Oregon, Portland is full of beautiful flowering bushes all over the place! So when Brandon and Jordan told me they wanted to do their engagement session in Forest Park and the Northwest District I was all for it.

These two are super sweet, adorable together, and as Jordan put it, "our dog matches us!" They were willing to trample through the plants, stand on hillsides, sit in parking lots in the rain (ok, so it DID rain during our shoot, but just a little bit), and it was awesome! I can't wait for their wedding later this year :)
