Engagement Session at Smith Rock State Park

Jason and Nikola ventured out from Portland to meet me at Smith Rock State Park for their sunset engagement photo session. They're getting married in Bend during the summer of 2018 and wanted a classic Central Oregon scene for their engagement photos. Admittedly, I've lived in Bend for over one year and hadn't shot a portrait or engagement session at this cherished location before Nikola and Jason's session! In Bend we are spoiled with an abundance of incredible locations within a ten minute radius so it can be tempting to just stick around town. I'm so glad Nikola and Jason were up for meeting me at Smith Rock because it was such a gorgeous location for their engagement photos. That light with the tones of the desert there is beyond mesmerizing. I can't wait to capture Nikola and Jason's wedding late summer 2018! They are both the loveliest and most vibrant beings! Here are some of my favorite shots from our engagement photo shoot.
