A few weeks prior to an upcoming wedding in Portland, OR, I posted on my Instagram that I wanted to give away an engagement session. I love the PNW so much that I wanted to photograph more people while I was up there.
Kenna and Tim were the first to respond. So, I treated them like I do all my couples. We met up on Skype and got to chat so that we could get to know each other. I was excited because I had yet another couple to photograph up in Portland and still had plenty of time to go exploring the city with my girlfriend on other days.
It had been a bit cloudy the day we planned to shoot. So, by the time we had met up, it was closer to sunset and a bit darker. We drove around trying to find the perfect spot and wound up deciding on Washington Park. As soon as we began shooting, drizzle started. We walked around a little bit to shoot at different spots, but after a few minutes it started to actually rain.
What we wound up doing was finding spots where the trees were covering us from the rain. I was mostly concerned with my new camera getting wet. And by that time, it was already dark. I relied on practically the only light that was available at that point… the lamp posts.
Kenna and Tim were awesome for sticking it through the shoot while it was raining.
