Lisa & Rhema (& Kona!)’s Engagement Session | Oregon Wedding Photographer

When we showed up to the river location to shoot Lisa & Rhema’s engagement photos it was absolutely packed with boats, innertubes, dogs and people enjoying the sunny weather at the river. We tried for a bit to get our shots and then finally gave up and left searching for a less chaotic location. I knew a great Christmas tree farm just up the road so we hopped in the car and off we went. Thankfully Lisa & Rhema just go with the flow because when we pulled up to the farm we discovered ALL the trees had been cut down! I swear they had just been there a week before! Oh well, I’m okay with shooting in a field of tall grass any day. At dusk we dared go back to the river and got the entire place to ourselves. Their dog Kona was a huge fan of retrieving sticks (branches? trees?) from the river. It ended up being a gorgeous evening for photos and even thought it took a tad bit more patience than usual, the entire shoot ended up perfect. Wedding photos from these two to come soon!
