I loved getting to meet up with Emily and Justin at Angels Rest for their The Gorge Engagement session! I’ve known Emily for, I don’t even know how many years! Emily is my cousin’s cousin….see if you can figure that one out. We’ve gone on vacations together, had sleepovers, talked about boys and marriage, shot photos and so much more together. I’ve loved getting to watch Emily’s relationship with Justin blossom and was so excited to found out they got engaged. And I was even more excited when they inquired with me about documenting this time in their lives! Justin is a big hunter and outdoorsman and him and Emily go on lots of hikes together so they wanted to do an Adventure Session with gorgeous views and some of that PNW vibe. We landed on shooting at Angel’s Rest along The Gorge and crossed our fingers for perfect weather, and it delivered! It was such a joy to get to hike up the mountain with them and learn how Justin proposed, how their story grew and more about Justin and his family. I cannot wait to document their wedding in Oregon next year!
