Silver Falls, Oregon Engagement Session | Damon and Tara

As an Oregonian for my entire life, there's really no excuse for never being to Silver Falls in Sublimity, Oregon. On a whim, I decided I needed to remedy this. What better way to experience one of PNW's greatest beauties than to bring a love story to life amidst the spray of a powerful waterfall?

My inspiration for the shoot came from three words: ORGANIC, TEXTURE and MOVEMENT. I didn't want a huge production, as the beauty of Silver Falls surely doesn't need backup. I wanted to experience the natural beauty in all its glory. And lucky for me Chas from Wildflower Portland was just as taken aback by the fact that I had never been to see the stunning waterfalls. So she happily added to the vision with perfect blooms.

And then I needed to find the perfect love story! I loved hearing each of the love stories that were sent for the model call I put out, but Tara and Damon's stuck out. They met online and there were so many signs it was meant to be. I swear they need to make a movie. Tara's online bio read "I am smiling because I like to... why are you?" His was "I am looking for a girl with an easy smile."

RIGHT?! And then Tara explained their first kiss was straight from a romance novel - her knees literally gave out. Sweetest story ever, and I was even more convinced these two were made for each other when I met them in person.

crazy in love, finding the one, love at first sight, true love - whatever you want to call it, these two have it.
