One of our favorite locations to capture engagement sessions is on Sauvie Island. Just a few minutes drive from the hustle and bustle of downtown Portland is a wonderfully peaceful location for couples to spend time together.
Ashlyn and Chad are getting married in January of 2016 at the Benson Hotel and wanted to capture their engagement photos in a different setting than their wedding. This is something we always recommend to our couples as a way of creating greater variety in the work they receive. It is fun to change up the setting and even the time of year of when your engagement photos are captured as opposed to your wedding photos.
Ashlyn and Chad’s engagement session was incredibly fun. The late day sun provided perfect light and the rustic setting worked really well with the attire they chose. Ashlyn and Chad brought some tequila to the session, so about mid-way through the session after changing into a different outfit, the three of us took a couple of tequila shots.
From the moment I met with Ashlyn and her mom during our initial consultation, I knew right away that this was a couple I very much wanted to work with. Ashlyn and Chad’s love for each other is incredibly infectious and I am so excited to have the opportunity to document this exciting milestone in their lives as a couple.
Here are some of our favorite moments from Ashlyn and Chad’s engagement session on Sauvie Island:
