When Helga contacted me there was only a few months until Her and Jeremy's wedding, But we knew we needed to get some engagement portraits in. So in mid March, The rainy season in Oregon we decided to hope for the best. Helga and Jeremy chose one of my favorite shooting locations Rood Bridge Park for their engagement portraits and Oregon decided to be nice and let the sun shine. I had so much fun with this amazing couple we were laughing and dancing the whole session.
We started the session at the little water feature on site. during the summer its clean and has a cute stream and waterfall but during the winter it gets kinda boggy. When we arrived at the location I almost decided to move on but Helga said she LOVED the color of the alge so we stayed. And I am SO glad we did.
After the pond we walked arround the park a bit and found this cute little bridge. This is when I found out that Helga and Jeremy are swing dance partners as well! These two totally busted out the pretzel it was beautiful how they just danced like they were the only ones at the park.
We walked a bit more back into the wooded area and found the most AMAZING back light. Im a SUCKER for hair light so we had to stop here and do a couple as well.
You can tell these two fill each others lives with so much love and fun. In this case I told them that I needed them to just walk towards me holding hands looking at each other. Instead of starting with a regular step Jeremy had both Helga and I cracking up because he leaped into the air and clicked his heals together. I just wish I had caught the full leap!
I absolutely love capturing engagement sessions for my couples and am always up for an adventure.
