The Four Season Engagement

Yashara & Saylor came up with this wonderful idea to capture each season in the year leading before their wedding. Beginning in Summer, almost precisely a year before their wedding day, each season we traveled to a new location to capture engagement photos.


The Summer session was taken on a field behind the bride's parents' home in the Willamette Valley. This would also be the location of their wedding ceremony.


In Fall we took a stroll around Mount Pisgah Arboretum capturing photos against the changing colors and falling leaves. The reflection photo captured during this session (and displayed below) was also used for their wedding invitations.


For Winter, we ventured into the Cascades in search of a snowy wonderland. What makes this session extra special is that Yashara made the dress she is wearing.


Finally, in Spring we spent a day at a local park capturing the beautiful spring colors and capping off this wonderful year.
