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.
Tanuja & Scott are a wonderful couple whose love story all started via Airbnb. It’s such a sweet story and the start of a perfect match! They both love the Central Oregon landscape and wanted to choose a unique location for the photos. I’m always happy to suggest locations to my clients, but I also love when a couple has a spot that they love. It was a chilly, but gorgeous spring day when I met Tanuja & Scott for their engagement photos. Scott arrived wearing a kilt, an homage to his Scottish heritage, and I was so thrilled! The unique rock formations and wide open spaces made this an amazing Crooked River Grasslands engagement session!
Scott changed into a wool flannel shirt and pants for the second half of their Crooked River Grasslands engagement session. We continued to clamber about on the unique rocks out in the desert, while Tanuja & Scott played around affectionately. The sun decided to peek out and treat us to some amazing golden hour light, as it slowly set on the high desert horizon.
Sometimes I really love to play with sun flare. It tends to soften an image a bit, as it creates a rich, creamy haze over the photo, but the result always makes me so happy! I just love capturing rainbows in my photos and the love between this two is so evident, especially in this ethereal image.
I always love creating a silhouette of every couple during their engagement session. I am so happy with Tanuja & Scott’s Crooked River Grasslands engagement session!
If you are engaged to marry and are interested in Oregon engagement photos, I would love to talk to you! We can chat about creating a custom engagement photo session for you! And, if you are newly engaged couple and still looking for wedding photos, I still have a few 2019 dates available, as well as many 2020 dates. Send me an email or text and we can talk more!
