Engagements | Smith Smith Rock | Bend, Oregon


Jess and Taylor are the cutest. From our initial phone call, I knew that these two were going to be a blast to work with. I could tell they were down for anything when they said they wanted to drive out to Smith Rock State Park for their engagements. Jess’s style is SO cool. I was pretty bummed out when I found out she purchased her white dress a few years back at H&M.. I want one for myself! These two have a lot of love for each other and for their families. I loved hearing the two of them talk about heir lives together, how much they value family, and about their dreams for their future.

Side note: When I asked these two to shoot in the grass near Smith Rock, they were totally up for it! Apparently, Jess whispered “there are probably rattle snakes in here” to Taylor as they walked out. After we finished shooting, we were walking back to the cars and saw a rattle snake RIGHT NEAR THE GRASS we were shooting in!! It scuffled away, but I was so grateful we didn’t run into any while we were in the grass. Note to self: Eastern Oregon has rattles. Props to these two for powering through, though!
