There are some days I want to have catalogued into my brain forever and this is one of those days. How lucky am I to document so many special days for wild, in love people? And this Oregon waterfall hiking engagement session is even closer to my heart because Tyler Jean is my soul sister. We came into each other's lives in our single, early twenties and our friendship bloomed so beautifully. We connect effortlessly on music, the outdoors, a love of dissecting movies, and of course being absolutely in love with life and adventure. We usually spend much of our time laughing and I wouldn't want it any other way because for as much time that we spend laughing together, we spend just as much time talking about the nitty gritty, raw, absolute shit parts of life so we can help each other through it. And now she has found her person!
Tyler Jean, Christopher, and I hiked this laid back and beautiful trail for their adventurous engagement session along the Columbia River Gorge to one of my favorite waterfalls in the Pacific Northwest. This rocky, winding trail is a canvas of the deepest blues and greens; the kind of blues and greens that make you feel calm and wild all at the same time. Which is exactly what I believe these two have found in each other...that fantastic feeling of peace and adventure all in one.
We all had such a great day together! We popped a couple bottles of champagne and ran around the Columbia River Gorge in the rain and wind before finding some lunch and cold beers.
These two are getting married October 2022 in a beautiful downtown Salem church ceremony followed by an absolute raging dance party to be sure. I am so stoked!

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!"
If you're looking for a special way to celebrate your anniversary, this is your sign to hit me up and let's get to talking about how we can plan a morning or evening or weekend as special as this one for you and your person.
Jen values connection and believes that true connection is what absolutely leads to emotive, powerful imagery.
