Waterfalls! Oregon Coast! And Total Eclipses!

Any who know me, know how much I love the great PNW! This August I took a trip up to Oregon, visiting the coast in Yachats, OR for the total solar eclipse many were raving about, as well as Portland, OR.

Now, first off, the total solar eclipse. HOLY COW. Literally the most awe-inspiring thing I have ever seen. I knew it would be cool, and I was intrigued to see it, but I never imagined it would be as incredible as it was! I now understand why people become "Eclipse Chasers." As happy as I am that I was able to grab a few shots of it, no photo I've seen yet even comes close to the real thing. But here are a couple favorites for you to check out, in case you didn't get to see the real thing yourself!

My favorite thing about the PNW is how GREEN it is. I cannot get enough of it! I had visited Portland for a job doing some headshots. While there, of course I had to visit the famous Multnomah Falls. This place graces my Instagram feed frequently, as I imagine it does yours as well! Again, so much more gorgeous in person than I imagined! If you ever have the opportunity to visit Portland, be sure to make it out to Multnomah! Not only is it itself absolutely breathtaking, but the drive there alongside the Columbia River Gorge isn't so shabby either!

So here are a few favorite shots from this amazing trip. I hope you enjoy them as much I did! Prints are available for purchase as well. If you'd love to have one of your own, send me a contact form and we'll make it happen!

Justin & Lily

On my recent trip to Seattle I was able to meet with this precious couple, whose wedding I'll be shooting this summer!  I loved being able to travel to this amazing city for their engagement shoot.  I'm also pretty crazy about this state.  Can't wait to visit again and can't wait for their big day in a few months!

Mark & Sally

I recently was able to make another trip up to San Francisco, where I got to shoot with Mark and Sally.  Such a cute couple!  I'm telling you, these two were little models.  Can't wait to visit NorCal again!

Matilda

I was able to make up a trip up to Seattle, WA last week, and I am sad to be leaving the PNW in just a matter of days.  So many gorgeous locations in just this one city alone.  While on this trip, I had the privilege of photographing the coolest girl in Seattle.  Tilly might actually appreciate Star Wars as much as I do!  Of course, we had to get some awesome photos of her in her homemade stormtrooper outfit for her portraits.  I mean, why wouldn't we?
