Americana Engagement session Matt and Shelby Vancouver, WA

I used to work with his mom and she introduced us!

  • We were vacationing in Denver visiting another couple who's good friends of ours. We were all driving through the mountains and stopped at a turnout for some pictures. Matt took the opportunity to surprise me and dropped to one knee and proposed! The backdrop was gorgeous - the view was a vast mountain range sprinkled with snow. Unforgettable!
  • The location, the outfits, the food, the party!

  • What kind of food will you have? Food will be mini versions of classic American food (i.e. sliders, sliced grilled cheese, mini chicken & waffles)
  • Relaxed, outdoor, and a little bit of an Americana feel thrown in there.
  • Try on several outfits before your shoot.

  • It was super fun! I was pretty nervous, so we met our photographers at a brewery downtown and had a couple beers before the session, which helped ha! We needed total guidance on how to pose (or not pose), and Tara was so good with us.
  • Experimenting with the sparklers
