Couples Session at Latourell Falls // Columbia River Gorge // Outside of Portland, Oregon

 couple embraces underneath latourell falls waterfall outside of portland oregon

A little over a week ago I was in Oregon photographing a couple under a waterfall (Latourell Falls to be exact). I had planned to go and meet up in Portland with a bunch of strangers from the internet who I met in a Facebook photography group. Sounds dangerous, but in 2019 it is honestly how I make most of my friends. It’s always scary to meet someone you’ve never met in person, but meeting this group of people wound up feeling pretty natural. I think it helps that we all meet new people almost every day for our career.

Something photographers like to do together is photograph – imagine that! So while we were all there we managed to set up a few shoots. One of the amazing couples we were able to work with is these two – Melanie & Larry. They were kind enough to meet me and my crew of photographer friends at Latourell Falls for a quick little photo shoot – they even brought their pup Nala.

I had hoped to get them out close to the waterfall where the rocks have all collected, but earlier in the day when I tried to venture out there to test the slipperiness I fell flat on my butt completely soaking my jeans and giving me a nice pair of matching bruises. I decided it was safest to keep them on flat ground! Hopefully when Matt and I head back out there again this summer I can give a shoot here another go and get the chance to climb some rocks.

Check out some of the shots we were able to get! These two were effortless with each other and I am certain I have never seen a more infectious smile than Melanie’s.

Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
Would you recommend starting with a free platform
like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are
so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
Any suggestions? Kudos!

I have read your article carefully and I agree with you very much. This has provided a great help for my thesis writing, and I will seriously improve it. However, I don’t know much about a certain place. Can you help me?

Can you be more specific about the content of your article? After reading it, I still have some doubts. Hope you can help me.
