Back in October, Matt & Ali celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary. We felt honored when they asked us to come out to Skamania Lodge to photograph their love.
Everything about this session was pure perfection. The air was fresh & crisp, the sun was shining, and M&A let their love shine!
They wanted a little touch of vintage charm to their session, so they dressed accordingly, and really focused on the details by bringing items that mean a lot to them. The earings Ali wore for the session were the same she wore on their wedding day, and they once belonged to her grandmother. The blanket (oh, that blanket is awesome) was given to her mom by her great-grandma back in the 60’s … Matt & Ali cuddle up on the couch with it almost every night. The deer pin was purchased at Velor, their favorite vintage/resale shop in Newberg. They also collect vintage cameras, and one of these was owned by Ali’s grandfather. The cameo ring was a birthday gift from Matt … he found it at their favorite vintage shop in Lincoln City. Ali’s hair & makeup was done by Jessica Belknap. Reason number 4,826 why you should hire a makeup artist … it lasts all day & looks fabulous!
For a couple who loves adventuring (did I mention they are our soulmates), Skamania Lodge was the perfect backdrop for the session. It’s about an hour from Portland, so it’s the perfect little weekend getaway.
We absolutely loved spending a bit of M&A’s anniversary with them!! Love these two … oh yeah, we think you might too! Check out their site.
