Lookout Mt. Adventure | A + A

First off let me say that all the couples we work with are badass - these two are no exception! True to their adventurous nature, they booked the Full Shabang, which includes an Adventure Engagement Session. They chose Lookout mountain for the shoot, with an elevation of 6,536 feet, it’s the second highest peak in Oregon's Mount Hood National Forest! Here’s the best part: it’s only a 2.6 mile hike roundtrip. Lots of love for these two and can’t wait to capture their wedding later this month.

Mt. Hood Lavender Love | J + M

Location: Lavender Valley

DIRECT SUNLIGHT? Now you definitely won’t see that often on my feed or in my work but sometimes there’s no way around it! Luckily a few days before, Ben Haisch released a video tutorial on maximizing dynamic range - and it worked wonders. Anyways, we left for the beautiful Lavender Valley Farm and had an amazing time getting to know each other. I love long drives with couples because it gives us the chance to talk and laugh before the camera comes out and it pays off for the engagement shoot and the day of the wedding.
