As Portland, Oregon wedding photographers, Angelina and I often reflect that connecting with others and documenting something so special is immensely rewarding. We love not only the photography aspect, but the opportunity it gives us to meet and get to know so many different people. 

All of the weddings we are part of are special to us, but we have especially fond memories of Charlotte and Brad's wedding. It was one the first weddings we documented together and it was the most intimate of ceremonies — a Bridal Veil Falls Elopement! We all hiked together to the beautiful Bridal Veil Waterfall in the Columbia River Gorge, documented the special elopement, served as witnesses, and then had an awesome time taking photos after. It was such a wonderful day and we loved getting to know Charlotte and Brad, and their sweet rescue dog Riley, who they brought along to be part of their wedding day.

Fast forward a year later, and while a lot has changed for us, what hasn't changed is our love of Oregon elopements and connecting with others. When we had the chance to meet up with Charlotte and Brad for their anniversary, we were so thrilled to spend the last hour before the sun set at hiking, exploring, catching up, and taking photos of course! They brought Riley along with them so the whole family could be part of the special occasion.

I hope you enjoy these anniversary photos as much as we do! Thanks for stopping by!
