I’m a wedding & elopement photographer for laid back couples that value the idea of being married more than just having a party. They want photos that show their true selves and represent their love of nature, and prefer to be more natural than overly posed.
Rochelle and Ben both have a love for craft beer and heard about the Bend Ale Trail, so they planned a brewery themed vacation earlier this year. While here, they visited Crux and watched the sunset with a brew in hand. After enjoying their beer, they went on a stroll along the Deschutes River and Ben proposed!
As most people do, they fell in love with Bend and decided to plan another trip here from the Bay Area, to have their engagement photos done and enjoy more of the tasty craft beers our area is known for. In planning their session, brewery engagement photos at Crux were a priority, but they also wanted to incorporate the river. We decided to start the engagement session on a beautiful stretch of the Deschutes River, near the area known as Big Eddy. It was a beautiful July day and luckily, the mosquitoes weren’t too bad!
After the river, we headed over to Crux for the brewery engagement photos. It was only fitting given Rochelle and Ben’s love of craft beer. It was a pretty busy night at Crux, but that’s exactly how it is here in Bend, especially on a beautiful summer evening!
Crux was kind enough to allow us to step back into the fermentation room to get a quick photo.
I had a blast doing Rochelle and Ben’s brewery engagement photos! The river photos followed by a session at Crux pretty much sums up Bend culture and all that I love about this great place I get to call home! Rochelle and Ben, wishing you the best in planning your wedding.

These are great Erica! I love the casual Colorado feel with the brewery and river views! You captured these two so well.
Thanks Amy! This is actually a brewery in Oregon, but Bend is very similar to Colorado. We love our microbreweries too!
