Jay and Ashlie live in Houston, Texas and were coming to Oregon for a friend’s wedding in Bend over Labor Day Weekend. Wanting to take advantage of the change in scenery and beauty Oregon has to offer, we coordinated a session for them while they were on their way back to Portland. How can a Columbia River Gorge session be beat?! I was so thrilled when Ashlie mentioned she wanted her session there! We had fun adventuring all around this old rock quarry island and taking lots of film photos along the way. Thank you so much Jay and Ashlie for choosing me as your destination photographer, I can’t wait for you to come back to the Pacific Northwest. xoxo
