Cathedral Park Elopement | Portland, oregon photographer | Oregon Autumn Elopement
There isn't much better than a sunny morning in the Autumn of the Pacific Northwest. It is all crisp air, crunchy leaves, and the perfect amount of moisture to make my hair curl but what really makes it special is coziness; not just the coziness of your favorite fuzzy sweater, but the coziness of love. The simplest joy of life is wrapping yourself and others in love just because you can. And this family emulates exactly that! Tara + Brett came with their small crew of children and parents for a beautifully intimate elopement at Cathedral Park in Portland, Oregon underneath the iconic St. John's Bridge on a perfect fall morning, Willamette River sparkling under the sun in the distance. Forest Park across the river looking absolutely stunning with fall colors, too!
One reason couples choose to go for an intimate wedding is, the focus is solely on their union and the love they have for each other. And if that is important to you then you have to honor that desire within yourself! Plan a day with less than 15 people at your favorite place then hit up your favorite restaurant to laugh the night away. Or hike 10 miles to a mountaintop for a picnic. Either way, I am there for it!!

Rainy Autumn Oregon Anniversary Session | Oregon Wedding & Elopement Photographer
Andre + Mary met me at a completely empty, yet briming full of color riverside spot. It was raining, but no one said a word about it. That's how I knew this was going to be a great morning! These two have a love that is sweet, passionate, and so beautifully deep and green. And they wanted to celebrate that love with a photo session to document their anniversary in the forest of Oregon. They wanted it to portray the adventurous spirit within their relationship and the location they decided on from my list of suggestions couldn't have been more perfect. We danced beneath the trees, on top of the leaves, across the suspension bridge, along the rocks, and beside the river. Andre + Mary laughed and hugged and kissed and shared their story with me in the most easy going way. I can't wait for their next anniversary so we can explore a new corner of Oregon together to celebrate another year of their love!
"Jen provided comfort, good spirit, and the best company for my girlfriend and I’s ✨adventure shoot✨ Jen truly captured the love my girlfriend and I both have for each other so perfectly. We were so excited to get our pictures, and the second we received them we were totally in love. In conclusion Jen is so dope, and spot on with timing. Jen is the one, forever! Jen you are AMAZING!"
