Mihaela & Jake | La Grande, Oregon, Destination Engagement Session | August 20, 2016, Leach Botanical Gardens, Portland Oregon, Wedding Photographs | Images by © http://MoscaStudio.com #moscastudio #weddingstyle #platinumlist

Marrying in beautiful destinations around the world, is always exciting! But why not take your photographers on adventures for your stylish engagement sessions too? It is not always feasible, of course, but if the time is right, and the occasion is perfect (and the photographers are willing and able) a destination engagement session is sure to be stunning. For one, we LOVE to explore new and exciting places, and engagement sessions offer the perfect off-season opportunity to think outside of the box. We’ve been asked to travel to Eastern Oregon (4 hours’ drive east of Portland Oregon) on several occasions, and we’ve been able to oblige on many. This time around, we went to the quaint little historic town of La Grande, where our beautiful couple Mihalea & Jake live and work. They hosted us in their home overnight and took us out to dinner, once we finished up the photography. It was a blast all around! Mihalea had a clear vision of how she wanted to look in the photos, and both she and Jake had a clear idea of where they wanted the images to be taken. They researched ahead of time, asked permission to go onto private land, and expressed all of this in detail to us, so we could be organized and efficient. And that we were! We arrived and went right to work chasing the glorious sunset light from a field of wheat with an old barn, to the center of the historic town, to a blooming field of sunflowers, just in time for the sun to set over the Blue Mountains. It was BEAUTIFUL! They will marry this Saturday August 20th 2016 at Leach Botanical Garden in Portland Oregon and we can’t wait!

Now THIS was an incredible engagement session! Nicole and Allen are going to marry on their favorite Oregon Coast beach with their reception being in Pacific City, Oregon (with it’s gorgeous sand dune, haystack rock and amazing views). We were already so excited for their wedding OCEAN adventure that it made sense when she contacted us about having an engagement session MOUNTAIN adventure for contrast! We met in the Zig Zag area by Mt Hood, to then drive to the Ramona Falls trailhead. From there, none of us was entirely sure how far the fall truly was, so we began to hike … in a pretty dress (Nicole) and our photography equipment (Mosca). Five miles later (!) we reach Ramona Falls. It was a beautiful day, an impressive waterfall, a super fun 10 mile loop on foot and an awesome time with the two of them! We had plenty of time to play in the woods with the greenery, the Mt Hood views and the beautiful nature. It was, honestly, one of the most fun adventures we’ve had in a while and can’t wait for their BIG day! Here is their sneak peek!

Jessica and Evan became engaged while on their 2-month backpacking trip in South America, at the end of 2013. It was exciting news for all! Its because they are friends of ours and because Jessica is a fellow photographer, whom we respect and love. We’re friends AND peers AND we are excited about their wedding day! We get to attend as guests and we can’t wait… I can’t remember the last time we were guests at a wedding! I’ll have to go shopping for something pretty to wear HA ;) This  set of images, is MoscaStudio’s contribution to Jessica & Evan’s engagement session day. We chose to take them on one of Portland’s beautiful Forest Park trails for part 1 of their day, then went to a bar and a rooftop, later on in the day. It was a beautiful day and we had a great time hanging out with them and other fellow photographers! Special thanks to the fabulous Janelle at The Prettiest You for Jessica’s gorgeous Make Up & Hair!

Jessica & Ryan are one of our brand new BEAUTIFUL couples of this coming 2014 wedding season. Not only are they UBER photogenic and fun, they are now also officially our new BFFs. Honestly! As soon as we finished photographing their fabulously fun Northwest Portland neighborhood engagement session, we all went our own ways, to freshen up and wait for the evening cocktail time. We met up over a drink, t at turned into late night dinner and SO many laughs and stories shared. We can’t even begin to say how excited we are for their wedding and for their engagement party too! A HUGE shoutout to our previous couple Heidi & Marti whom referred us to Jess & Ryan. THANK YOU!! And a big thank you to Rosie of Powder, Inc, for Jessica’s beautiful make up and hair.

Danielle and Jeff are going to marry at the beautiful Red Ridge Farms in Dundee, Oregon, next summer. It’s in Oregon’s wine country and it will be beautiful! We had a blast getting to know them and photographing them on this beautifully sunny and crisp fall day in Portland this year. They live in Los Angeles but came north, to Portland, to meet with some vendors and to have the opportunity to get their engagement session done…. SO glad they came up when they did: the weather was perfect and we had a blast! We can’t forget to mention pretty little Bella… She’s the little doggie in some of the photos below. #aww ;)
