{For the Bride + Groom} Kimberly Kay Photography Weekly Wedding Tip | Oregon Wedding Photographer

{For the Bride + Groom} Tip of the week – “Connection” For us…as wedding photographers it’s not so much about posing…and more about a “connection”. What we are always seeking for is a real moment… a raw split second of a moment that evokes an emotion or a connection. So… with that being said… my suggestion to you…is to remember to have fun in front of the camera… We will collaborate with you… on a lovely location that will compliment your relationship. Then we will work with you to have a lot of fun… Be silly, be romantic… invade each others space a bit more then you normally would be close… {so important} ! Have fun, flirt… laugh and love on your partner during your engagement session or wedding day. The intimacy, connection, the laughter and love will poor out when you do so. And in turn, it will always provide for the most precious moments to cherish after the fact. Don’t be afraid to be “real with each other”. With this particular image… I asked my clients to stand underneath a weeping willow tree. I was swooning over the light and the romance of the flowing leaves and branches and felt it would convey a fun, warm and inviting look for their photos. I asked them to simply put their heads together… I wanted to capture her lovely “ring” I think she tickled him or said something silly that only he would appreciate…and we captured an entire series like this. I adore this image… I think it truly conveys the love they have for one another…the fun couple that they are together… full of life and simply smitten for one another! I hope this tip helps! ~Kimberly Kay9969

{Kelsey + Brian} Engagement Session Columbia River Gorge, Oregon | Portland, OR Wedding Photography

The Columbia River Gorge is a canyon of the Columbia River in the Pacific Northwest. The Canyon stretches over 80 miles and there are some incredible scenic spots all along the gorge perfect for an engagement photo shoot. Kelsey and Brian chose to start off their engagement session with a few photos at the Historic Vista House observatory at Crown Point. Followed by some romantic photos at the exact location of which Brian proposed to Kelsey on a lovely little dock at a little lake on private property along the gorge. We finished the engagement session at Latourell Falls off the historic Columbia River highway. This particular water fall is unique amongst the best-known waterfalls along the Gorge in the way that it drops straight down from an overhanging cliff, the drama is perfect for any romantic and fun photo shoot!

{Engagement Session} Three Sister’s Wilderness Central Oregon | Central Oregon Wedding Photographer

We had great fun getting to know this incredibly smitten couple during their engagement session in the Three Sister’s Wilderness of Central Oregon. It seemed like such a perfect evening. We all had simply breathtaking views of the Three Sisters Wilderness which is an area in the Cascade Range, within the Willamette and Deschutes National Forests in Central Oregon. It comprises 286,708 acres, making it the second largest wilderness area in Oregon. It was established by the United States Congress in 1964 and is named for the Three Sisters, three volcanoes. It’s one of our favorite areas to take our clients as it’s provides for such a lovely back drop for photos. The groom is a pilot, and by chance there was all sorts of planes flying over head during their engagement session….leaving their marks in the sky. Which was so entertaining, fitting as their relationship started out as a long distance romance. Enjoy a little sneak peek!60105724578957456139579692548922880262398703849463248420629561896284l8Like what you see?
