A lot of my clients are drawn to locations outside of the city for their engagement sessions. It’s no surprise to anyone that Oregon is FILLED with breathtaking views. We have mountain tops, wild flowers, rivers and waterfalls. But we also have a charming little city to take advantage of! So It’s a nice change of pace when clients like Sam & Kevin, are interested in a downtown Portland engagement session.
Downtown Portland has so many iconic locations that are great for an engagement session. We have Tom McCall Waterfront Park, the white stag sign, the Pearl District and Pioneer Courthouse Square. While those locations are iconic for a reason, my favorite location wont make any ‘Best of Portland’ lists. Rooftop parking lots make GREAT backdrops for urban engagement sessions. And you can’t beat those views at golden hour.
I certainly hope this blog posts encourages you to think twice about bouncing around Portland for your engagement shoot. Learn more about what shooting with me is like here.
