Based in Bend, Oregon Engagement Travel Photographer | Engagement Session

Deborah and Payton knew they had a special connection from the moment they met. From having to consistently hold hands or sit hip to hip, these two can no longer stay away from each other. Their parents have made a family joke that they are like a pretzel! You never know whose limb is whose with them.  You can see their ever growing love for each other in each photo I took during their engagement session. We went to each sentimental spot where their relationship had a milestone, from the spot where Deborah confessed her fondness for Payton to where Payton proposed.  I can't wait to see them get hitched on their wedding day, July 2nd and have them official become pretzel!

Payton picked out the most perfect engagement ring! and it looks pretty great next to pinecones too.

How fun is it when an engaged couple brings funiture to their outdoor engagement session! I especially love this vintage red chair!!!

Deborah looked exceptionally beautiful in her black dress during their engagement session. We felt like she needed a little color on her though, so she borrowed the purple fedora hat I was wearing! It definitely looks better on her.

If your getting married in the spring or summer sometimes that means you have to do your engagement session in late fall or winter. At Ariel Dawn Photography we can still make a crunchy brown leaf scenery look cool! ;)

I always encourage couples to bring whatever they find meaningful together to their engagement session! Now Payton and Deborah will always have pretzels twisted into their engagement session photos. (See what I did there?)
