Colombia Gorge Engagement Session: JJ and Brittany


You’re going to love these engagement photos at the Colombia Gorge!! It’s been months since our first time meeting over Facetime, but I think JJ and Brittany have the record time for the longest inquiry call. But I hesitate to call it that because it was more of a conversation between friends, and it wasn’t hard for me to see what kind of genuinely caring and kind people these two are. As a result their engagement session in the Columbia Gorge was SO MUCH FUN!! We laughed a lot, and captured some gorgeous photographs of their love. 

JJ and Brittany love each other. Duh, they are getting married. But you know something else? It’s not hard to see, they are each other’s best friends. It’s those kind of relationships in this world that are rare, and these two have found it. 

Oh and are you ready for a little surprise? JJ and Brittany are actually married…. They had their very small covid wedding last year, but are going for a 2.0 with a big celebration at the Old School House in Newberg, Oregon , and I couldn’t be more excited. 

These are the kind of people that make me overwhelmed with gratitude for being able to be a wedding photographer, and June can’t come soon enough to celebrate these two!

It's an easy treat to make and it can be served on its own with something warm to drink, or topped with creamy vanilla ice cream...or if you're like me, both!
