Painted Hills Couples Session in Eastern Oregon

Shortly after moving to Portland, I did some heavy research to find all of the hidden gems and landscapes all around. After finding the Painted Hills, I was ecstatic! I knew that I wanted to do a Painted Hills couples session! It was only 4 hours from Portland and I had seen it all over the Internet for years. I was ready to cross it off my bucket list and so I recommended it to Rachel and Alex and we made a day trip it out of it. Oregon is such a diverse state, there’s the coast, mountains, and desert all within a 5-hour radius. 

We met up in Portland and were on our way, chasing the sun. The sun was setting so fast and we were trying to beat the light, luckily we made it just in time after stopping for burgers in the middle of nowhere and passing through wheat fields. 

Upon arrival, I was in awe. The vibrant red dirt could be spotted a mile away. We jumped out and quickly began shooting along the wooden pathway. We had 30 minutes to shoot and made it all happen. When you have a couple and locations this photogenic it makes the job easy! We sat and watched the stars slowly appear one by one and we may have done a few donuts in the gravel parking lot. 

This was such an incredible night with so many wonderful memories made. Thank you Rachel and Alex for coming with me and exploring. I cannot wait to visit again and camp next time. This place is a beautiful masterpiece. 

Let’s start planning your Painted Hills couples session, wedding, or elopement! Get in touch!
