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!
