When talking with Shannon about a location for their session she mentioned they would like to shoot at St. John’s Park in N. Portland. I thought this was a great idea, I love North Portland and yes I’m biased since I live up there! What was even more interesting is they don’t live nearby, they just really like the location. So we headed over there one Saturday afternoon. The weather was good, the sun shining and pictures were being taken. This was the first time I met Matt and after our session together I’m really excited to shoot their September wedding in Sunriver. He is goofy, makes Shannon smile from ear to ear and is really sweet to her. After shooting in the park I wanted to take them to downtown St. Johns. It’s the cutest little area with some fun retro feeling backdrops. Here are some pics from their session, enjoy!
