ALEX + SAM | columbia river gorge engagement

These two have a very special kind of love. I mean, just look at their faces! This shoot was special to me because we got to just hang out, wait for the sun to set, and get to know each other. They let me be creative and try new things. They were patient with me as I kept saying "wait for it, wait for it, only 10 more minutes until the sun sets I promise..." and "okay sit on these sharp rocks for just a little longer..." Troopers. 

We shot these photos on the sunniest spring day, it felt like summer. It was a total soul-filler. I am constantly being reminded that this is what God wants me to be doing. No amount of self doubt can change it. God is also reminding me with these shoots to not be afraid of growth. A friend told me that we should not compare our beginnings to someone's middle, or our middle's to someone's end. We all are learning. We are all at different stages. All that matters is that we do our best. 

Thank you Sam + Alex for the amazing time! These photos make me so happy.
