Columbia River Gorge Adventure Bridals // Vandella + Garrett


After an insanely busy fall season of shooting + editing weddings I was craving to shoot something fun, adventurous, and WILD. Thats why I was SOO excited to photograph Vandella + Garrett at sunrise in the Columbia River Gorge. Me and a friend woke up at 4:30 A.M. when the world was still asleep and it was was pitch dark to grab coffee before our adventure. We drove in the dark around scouting for last minute locations when we found this gorgeous cliff overlooking the Gorge (seriously stunning even in the dark lol). We met up with Vandella + Garrett right before sunrise and lemme tell ya, the winds were FIERCE, but despite the crazy weather we had so much fun battling the wind on the cliff and laughing our butts off from the adrenaline rush and how cold we felt. After defrosting in the car we drove down the mountain and stopped to capture some sweet and peaceful moments in the middle of this road, with the last glimmer of fall as our backdrop. We ended our ‘morning’ with an attempt at popping some fruity prosecco which we kinda failed at but we all got a crazy good laugh out of it. Thanks to these two for being crazy and getting up so early for an amazing adventure, this was definitely one for the books. :)
