When a bride asks for underwater photos and to meet at one of our favorite restaurants beforehand, we know its going to be a good session. Christine wanted to try some underwater photos as a part of her engagement session with her love Mitch. We jumped at the idea and worked on planning how to get that done here in Portland up until the last minute. Even with all that planning on both ends, we ALMOST didn’t get to go into the pool even though everything was cleared beforehand with the hotel. We sweet talked and luckily it worked out perfectly. Mitch brought some lighting since they own an event company and could light up the pool like sunlight! Collaborative creating at its best. Now lets go back to the detail that the pool was only the third thing we did during this session! First we dined with them at Eventide and then we took them around Portland’s Old Port and the Eastern Prom for some less underwater-y photos. You know you gotta have that too 😉 Thank you Mitch and Christine for being so laugh-y, snuggly, kiss-y, adventurous, open, trusting, and enthusiastic. We loved photographing you both and CANNOT wait to see how you do a wedding.
