Sunset Portraits in Portland, Oregon

These sunset portraits in the Gorge are some of my new favorites! I had the honor of capturing the talented Leah Dawson this month in Oregon for her new rebrand! I met Leah on Instagram years and years ago when I lived in Virginia, and I’m so grateful that our paths crossed! After moving to Oregon in July 2019, Leah and her boyfriend, Keaton, modeled for me while doing a mentorship on the Oregon Coast. We instantly became friends and had the best time ever. Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to photograph them a few different times, once being in Palm Springs, California, on film and this time in the Columbia River Gorge.

Leah is SUCH a talented wedding photographer and is undergoing a business rebrand at the moment. One day, she reached out to me asking ME to take her new headshots, and I felt SO honored!! We immediately starting planning her shoot, getting locations and outfits together, and I don’t think these could turn out any better!

We went to my favorite secret little field at sunset and had the most beautiful light. The wildflowers were out, and we made magic! After the session, we grabbed beers and burgers with her boyfriend Keaton and had a great conversation. I am so grateful to call these two friends here in Portland. They always bring fun and good vibes! Thank you, Leah, for letting me document these special moments; I cannot wait to see your new brand come to life!
