When thinking about engagement sessions, couples most often consider location. A typical conversation includes weighing the options of a photo session in a park setting or something more urban like downtown Portland. And most couples hope to align with a nice bright sunny day.
Amy & Paul wanted to do something very different and capture their engagement photos during the evening. They love Portland, especially at night. Amy loves the look of twinkling lights in the background and wanted to make sure to capture the essence of Portland at night.
We began the session at PSU, the exact location where they originally met, and where Paul proposed to Amy. We walked over to the Park Blocks and captured some images by the Portland Art Museum. Then, as the sun began to set, a quick outfit change was in order as we hit some key locations throughout the Portland area.
Among our many stops, we made sure to visit the Portland Center for the Performing Arts, the iconic Portland sign on Broadway, and of course the Portland skyline from the east side.
Amy & Paul’s evening engagement session goes to show that pictures can happen at any hour of the day. I love that they opted for something different and came away with images of the two of them enjoying each other and the city that they love so much at night.
