There’s few things that make me happier than being outside in nature. It’s wild to think that 45 minutes from my apartment I’m able to explore the same stomping grounds that Lewis and Clark once trekked through. The freedom to easily share this beauty with my couples is one of the reasons I moved here 2 years ago. Jessie+James wanted to incorporate the wildness that makes up this neck of the woods for their Portland engagement photos. It’s a semi-secret location tucked away just east of the river, and it made the perfect backdrop for their session.
