Irene & Nick: Columbia River Gorge Engagement

outdoor engagement photography in boulder | adventurous engagement photographer | colorado engagement session


Irene and Nick were my first engagement shoot ever. They are a couple from Texas who wanted to get their photos taken in an environment totally different from home: the lush green rainforest of the Columbia River Gorge outside Portland. I had the best time location scouting for these two, and we wound up choosing a lesser-known, but magical location called Oneonta Gorge, where we shot in an old wooden train tunnel, alongside moss clinging to the steep ravine walls, and even atop wobbly slick logs in the river. These two were the ultimate adventure troopers and we had the best time traipsing around in this gorgeous (and soggy) environment. It was here I realized how much fun it can be to spend time photographing a couple in love.
