Congratulations, to all you newly engaged couples.
With the coming of spring, I’m here to recommend all the beautiful places you may want to take engagement photos this year. I’ve been to waterfalls inner-twinned along the Columbia River Gorge. Or if your feeling beachy, the beach where I feel most home. I’m here to help you narrow down your list of choices with a few easy tips and tricks in finding the location that’s right for you.
There’s a few different places on the coast that call out to me. The coast can give you so many different backgrounds and textures depending on how far north or south you go. A few of my favorites are are-
The Gorge is most always gorgeous! The scenery speaks for itself, and the options are vast. From Rowena’s crest to Multnomah falls your options are endless. This past year I found myself out in cascade locks more than 10 times. This location gives me all the feels accompanied by its jaw dropping beauty.
Waterfalls surround a good part of Oregon. Here, in Oregon we more than 238 waterfalls ranging from small tonlosere. The Columbia gorge is home to more than 80 waterfalls giving you more variety here than other places. A few of my favorite waterfalls are Latourell falls, Multnomah Falls, Silver Creek Falls, and Bridal Veil Falls.
What time should we plan out shoot!
I tend to answer this question a little differently for each of my couples. Some of my couples want a warmer feel to their photos, which comes usually from the setting of the sun. If you want that warm summer glow I suggest planning your shoot time an hour to 45 minutes before the scheduled sunset. On overcast days along the coast, I tend to prefer to shoot anywhere after 3/4 pm to help with how bright the sun is behind the clouds. There's quite a few factors that go into planning your session, but don't fret that's why I'm here to help!
Id love to set up a time to chat about what your engagement session will look like. The options are endless, and I'm here to help along each part of the way.
