Engagement Session in the Heart of Portland

Amy & Tyler’s urban engagement session proves that you don’t need to travel far from Portland for a gorgeous backdrop. Just as the locals do, they spent the day wandering the streets, making a few stops along the way at Stumptown Coffee, Ace Hotel and the Multnomah Whiskey Library.

From the Bride: 

Tyler planned a wonderful weekend to Hood River this summer and found an amazing sunset hike for us to do. It is not unusual for us to go on hiking adventures so I thought nothing of it. We had a wonderful day visiting breweries and walking along the river that weekend before heading out on the gorgeous gorge hike. There was no one else on the hike that day - something very unusual for the Columbia River Gorge on a Saturday in the summer. At the peak of the hike he recapped our love story from the beginning going through all the highs and lows, or "peaks and valleys" as we call them - something we have always done. He proposed at the top of the hike with views of Mt. St. Helens and Adams in the distance and wildflowers blooming throughout the valley. It was perfect, romantic, and just us. I would not have wanted it any other way.

 

From the Coordinator: 

Elyse of Plum & Oak Photo and I decided to make an impromptu trip to Portland to explore the land of hipsters, Voodoo donuts and insane mountain greenery, that we just don’t get enough of in Southern California. I played collegiate volleyball with Amy at NNU and reached out to her because I knew she had recently gotten engaged. We were inspired by Amy and Tyler’s proposal, so we decided to have our favorite calligrapher, Phoenix Feathers Calligraphy, create a sign with their names, favorite song lyrics and wildflowers, to bring in elements of their engagement day. Three hours before our flight back home, Elyse and I met Amy and Tyler in the city and explored like locals. We wandered the streets of Portland in search of the most gorgeous engagement session, and that is exactly what we got!
