I had never met Sarah or Chris until this day, but oh my gosh did I love them. They are funny and kind, giggly and goofy, adventurous and amazing. We met up in Bend and drove for miles and miles, laughing in the car, telling stories, jumping out, running across highways, tramping through underbrush, chasing the light the whole time. They’ve been doing long distance for two years now and I could tell that every moment together was worth so much to them. I was thrilled when they suggested doing their engagement photos in Central Oregon because I absolutely love getting to shoot in this part of the state. We shot outside of Sisters, up on Santiam Pass and then finished the night at Smith Rock State Park, watching as a gorgeous sunset lit up the sky to make the day even more perfect. And oh yeah – it was Valentine’s day. Couldn’t get any better than that. Sarah and Chris – thank you for adventuring and exploring with me. Thank you for being game to climb up scary rocks in high winds in sandals. Thank you for making this day so, so much fun. I cannot wait to shoot your wedding this summer!
