I have known Sara & Josh a few years now. Sara is a old and dear friend of my beloved sister in law, she and josh have all way been fun to see around parties & camping trips. Even hanging out with them as guest at one of the weddings I shot this summer!
They are the kind of couple that are just easy to hang out with, and fun to be around. When Sara contacted me earlier in the year about shooting her wedding I was overjoyed. Knowing these two, I knew the wedding was going to be an amazing event.
They will be getting married this June at a beautiful summer camp just up the Columbia River Gorge, it will be a beautiful setting and location! To give them a little something different for their engagement photos we trekked into downtown Portland for this session. Even though both were a little hesitant to do the session at first, we had a great time running around downtown. Even their adorable (and huge!) dog Bohdi got in on some of the photo action.
Here are a few of my favorites so far:
Sara & Josh both have sparkly blue eyes & warm smiles.
Sara & Josh have been together for a long time. How many years has it been, like 7? These two are so lovely together. It is always fun to work with a couple who is 100% comfortable with each other and just so good together.
Check out the whole family here. Bhodi is so adorable. He is some kind of lab mix, but by the size I believe the guess is his mix is Great Dane. Though a little attached to his people he is a big huge love. It will be fun to see how big he gets, oh yes he is what only 10 months old right now. Lover boy is going to be massive.
this one might be my absolute favorite from the day. We lucked into some amazing afternoon light.
After running around downtown I talked Sara & Josh into heading into a parking lot with me. Not the most traditional place for a session I know, but I just had few ideas I wanted to try out. They were pretty rad to accommodate my crazy ideas!
Thank goodness no cars decided to make it up to the top of the structure for these! I loved all the bright yellows.
Beautiful city + beautiful couple = happy emily
We so lucked out with the weather on Sunday. The skies were perfect!
and one last one of our lovely couple. Such a perfect fit these two.
Sara & Josh thanks for hanging out with me on sunday, even if you did have to drag your selves out for it.
