Ever since I started doing photography and I wanted to shoot an elopement in the Pacific Northwest! So when I was finally planning to be in Bend, Oregon I was SO stoked for this shoot with Morgan and Brad!
Morgan, who’s also a photographer, and Brad are adventurous souls like me so we decided to explore the most gorgeous waterfall outside of Bend, Oregon last April. We also had the pleasure of working with some amazing vendors that made this shoot so magical! A huge thank you to Kate Podwils with Kate Hana Artistry for doing makeup, Kelsey Garrison with K and Co Bridal Hair Styling for doing hair, and Brier and Ivy for this stunning bouquet!
We stayed at an Airbnb in Bend and Morgan came over to get ready before we headed out to shoot before sunset! Once we got there, I totally geeked out about finally seeing my favorite waterfall in person after seeing it in photos and dreaming about visiting!
We walked around the surrounding forest area and all my PNW dreams came true!! Seriously- nothing beats the stunning moss-covered forests in the Pacific Northwest. The light coming through the trees was pure magic and these cuties were the absolute perfect models!!
We ended the shoot under the waterfall and Morgan and Brad were absolute TROOPERS for getting drenched out there! I couldn’t be happier with how this story came to life and I’m so grateful these two were up for the adventure!
I’m so happy I could finally make my PNW dreams happen and a HUGE thank you to all the amazing vendors & Morgan and Brad for exploring with me!

I’d love to visit the PNW one day as well AND photograph and elopement! Looks like she got a little wet by the waterfall in the beginning
