Portland Pearl District Engagement Photographs | Andrea & Mark

I hit it off with Andrea and Mark right away. From the moment we met, I was blown away by how sweet they were together. These two Portlandians met five years ago in the city’s fall Ultimate Frisbee league (I know! How cool is that?) and are planning what looks to be an amazing Mt. Hood wedding this fall. Andrea contacted me to enter our Wedding Bee engagement photography giveaway and told me of their love of frisbee, Portland’s Pearl District, and industrial/urban engagement photography. I’ve been dying to play around in the Pearl, so I just had to award her one of the sessions.

A few weeks ago, I took a train down to PDX one afternoon to shoot their session and catch a ride back to Seattle the same night with friends. We had a pretty narrow window to photograph in, made a little bit narrower by my train’s tardiness. I confess, I was a little nervous because Andrea painted herself as “camera shy” and I wasn’t sure we’d have enough time for her to get comfortable. But, as it turns out, either she is a big liar or we just meshed that well –these guys had a wonderful sense of humor– so this shoot was one of my most fun and stress-free sessions yet!

They started their engagement session in Tanner Springs Park in Portland’s Pearl District, then ran about for photographs on the Broadway Bridge before heading to Overlook Park for more pictures before sunset. Alas, we lost most of the light before we could take frisbee-diving photos, but I really couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful shoot with more fun people.

Thank you, guys. Enjoy your photos and congrats on your pending nuptials!
