Like many couples in the summer of 2020, Andee and Drew made alternate plans to their wedding day due to COVID-19. What was going to be a big celebration turned into a party of four—Andee, Drew, their pup and I. We woke up early to do a sunrise hike at Coyote Wall in Columbia River Gorge.
Choosing to have an adventure engagement session or an elopement doesn’t mean you have to be an avid or experienced hiker or lover of long strenuous hikes! There are a lot of stunning locations all around the PNW that are actually quite iconic and require little to light amounts of hiking. Win win!
That being said, there are also other epic locations that do require some hard work, and if you want to know about those, get in touch! I do a lot of hikes, but haven’t done many sessions in these locations
Janaye and Mike knew they wanted to have an adventure together, and then they decided to make a whole weekend out of it! We stayed at an amazingly cozy Airbnb in Bend, and made a whole weekend out of exploring and taking photos. What a dream!
We started out at the Oregon Badlands. I’ve always been a sucker for that desert vibe with the neutral colors, the dust and the general desolate nature of it all. Paired with their badass jackets, this made the perfect backdrop. We ended the session dancing to Get Low and making fools out of ourselves. All around, a great way to get started!
Anyone who has been to Trillium Lake knows just how beautiful that place can be! I was so excited when Shelby suggested it as the location for their engagement session
