Stephanie & Joe’s Columbia River Gorge Elopement


Stephanie and Joe flew out from Louisiana to host a tiny wedding in the Columbia River Gorge.  Surrounded by about 20 of their family members and best friends, the wind playfully blew through the ceremony on a cliff overlooking the river.  We paused for a long celebratory lunch in Hood River, before I headed out with the bride and groom on an evening portrait adventure.

First, we stopped at a waterfall, where they took of their shoes and stood under the misty rain of the summer falls.  Then we returned to the site of their ceremony, which had gone all blue and gold in the sunset light.  I LOVE this photo of them, the moon just behind, and the magical light of evening blasting across from the mountains.
