It’s “Gettin’ Married Monday” and I’m so excited to share Jessie + Michael’s Engagement Session!

Nothing screams PORTLAND, OREGON like a trip to Powell’s City of Books and a walk around Hoyt Arboretum… which is exactly what we did on a lovely sunny Saturday in early October.

Jessie + Michael are total book and science nerds, but they’re also outdoor adventurers! I’ve known Jessie since we were teenagers. Her joyous spirit has always been infectious, which she brings to her science classroom at Sherwood High School. I love following along on her field trips via Instagram and learn something new nearly every time we meet. Their engagement session was the first time I met Michael; he’s the perfect match for Jessie. His sweetness and kind heart were immediately obvious to me through his smile. His well-timed sense of humor creates constant laughter (p.s. Jessie has one of my favorite laughs EVER) on their many adventures throughout Oregon.

Needless to say I’m thrilled to be working with them to tell their love story and document their Oregon Coast wedding next July. …On to the photos!Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0002 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0005 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0001 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0004 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0003 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0006 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0007 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0008 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0009 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0010 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0011 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0012 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0013Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0014 Portland Engagement Photography Powells Hoyt Arboretum_0015
