Donny & Alexis | Columbia Gorge Engagement

These two were just a blast. Alexis and Donny both ended up moving to Portland together, from New York and Vancouver, respectively, after meeting in Phoenix. The Northwest is definitely a magical place, especially coming from Arizona, and they never left. The Columbia Gorge was the perfect place to showcase the beauty of Oregon for their engagement session!

Ice cream is Alexis' "first love", so of course we had to grab some soft-serve at this teeny fast-food spot at Cascade Locks before heading out for the rest of their session. We (and the baby) definitely didn't mind!

Rufus is their well-loved and kinda crazy dog, who ran around the island for their entire shoot, chasing birds, yaking up ice cream, and having the time of his life.

Alexis & Donny were total champs about standing/sitting on multiple sketchy precipices, and were constantly cracking each other up. Chemistry for days!
