Zack + Melissa | Silver Falls Anniversary | Portland Wedding Photographer

This  Silver Falls anniversary session is really special to me. When you look at these two, you really wouldn't know that they've been married for 10 years and have 3 adorable babies together. They still look at each other like they just fell in love and it warms the freaking heck out of my heart. We thought Silver Falls would be the perfect location for a moody anniversary shoot and it suuuure was.

It's always a good idea to get images taken of you and your special someone but this case was a little more unique. Melissa shared with me that when they got married they were unable to afford a photographer and it was a regret they'd carried with them for a decade. It's so special for me that I get to create art like this with people who will value and cherish it for generations.

Of course I think everyone should invest as much as they can into photography for their wedding day but in some situations if you just can't, totally make sure to get anniversary sessions so you're able to capture how you and your cutie grow together each year.

When we got to Silver Falls there were little patches of snow all over! We avoided them though because we all wanted a spring look to the shoot. This is the 4th time I'd been there in the last year so I got to see it in all seasons! It's crazy how different it looks in each one. We explored the area around the falls and took some images in the forest before the hike down. These cuties were even brave enough to hop into the FREEZING cold water. They're amazing and I love them.

We truly had a rainy Oregon adventure and I'll never forget this moody anniversary session. Happy anniversary, cuties!!

This was the snowiest and most magical day! I was invited by Emery Adair to join her on this amazing winter styled shoot and had the most fun ever. So many amazing local vendors added their creative genius to the shoot and made it extra special!! We wanted to inspire couples with these romantic snowy vibes and it turned out better than any of us could have expected. Mother nature graced us with fluffy snow to top it all off!

Carmen + Sasha are some of the most gorgeous women I've ever seen and their smiles are freaking BLINDING you guys. I hope you get to meet these ladies because they are the absolute sweetest, especially to each other. Their love is so clear and present in every photo of them together.
