Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden is a hidden oasis. Located just 3 miles from my home and right across the street from Reed College, it’s hard to imagine that I never previously photographed at this location. When I first arrived, I was immediately taken by the beauty of the garden and knew exactly why Samantha & Jamie chose it as the location for their engagement session.
Samantha & Jamie love the outdoors. They love to go hiking to explore all that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. So, while capturing their engagement photos, I wanted to make sure to include their environment and surroundings. I love this peaceful moment of the couple spending time together alone with the setting sun trickling through the trees.
I have worked with Samantha & Jamie many times over the years and I feel so honored to have the opportunity to document their wedding in 2016.
