I recently had a great engagement session with, Bree and Jay, clients of mine that are getting married this July. We had really wanted to do an outdoor location shoot at their aunt’s ranch, however if you live anywhere near the northwest right now you will know that the weather has been completely unpredictable. I was really hoping that the clouds would break and give way from some dramatic sky-scapes. It did not. So as a back-up plan we headed to McMenamin’s Cornelius Roadhouse
Pass in Hillsdale, OR.

I like shooting at the McMenamin’s establishments because they are so unique and they are always very gracious about photography on site. I hadn’t been to the Cornelius Pass Roadhouse but they have a beautiful old house, well-kept grounds and a pub (barn-sized) with lots of great old signs hanging about.

Bree and Jay were just a pleasure to work with and the two hours flew by. They were very relaxed and playful. I wanted to do a mix of natural shots and then some posed stuff with funky McMenamin’s art and signs in the background. The shoot was a blast and I am really looking forward to their wedding at Cedar Springs Country Estate.
