Brent & Mariko traveled through California and Oregon for days, adventuring in their hand crafted converted camper-truck. These two Portland lovebirds knew they'd be making a stop in Bend for some "hiking"... well at least that was the cover story between Brent and I. We did, in fact, go on an incredible hike. I was the keeper of the secret (in cahoots with Brent) that he had a ring in his pocket during this hike, and had a plan to pop the question! I woke up totally giddy to capture these two during this next big step in their lives together.

Tumalo Falls is one of my favorite locations and It worked out really well to have the session there. The diversity of the falls, flowing water, moss covered boulders and surrounding meadows all made for such stunning backdrops. I was so honored to be there to capture this moment with Brent & Mariko. Cheers to these two and their pup Ellie too! P.S - Scroll all the way to the bottom of this gallery to see the GIF's I created from this shoot!
