Engagement Photographer

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!

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?)

Hockey Rink Engagement Session | Great Fall, MT | Christina + Cameron Engaged

An amazing backstory of this engagement session that was written by the bride -
"We picked the Great Falls Americans hockey rink to have our engagement photos because of how our engagement started. Cameron is a huge hockey fan (the Colorado Avalanche) and wanted to make his proposal something very special and unique. After the game, Cameron brought me down to the glass and said: "Now every time we watch an Avs game on tv we can see this spot and remember how amazing this moment is." He got down on one knee and said "I can't think of a more perfect place than my favorite my place to ask my favorite person in the world to be my wife. Will you marry me?" It was so unexpected coming from someone who never wanted to get married and that some how there was something about me that changed his mind. I was so surprised and excited of course I said yes!! We were extremely excited to find such a fantastic photographer to run with our idea and be able to include my som in our photos. Special thank you to Ariel Dawn photography and Jim and the guys at the Great Falls Americans Ice Plex for making the perfect engagement shoot possible!"

Courtney and Matthew | Fairfield, Montana | Engagement Session

Courtney and Matt live in Reno, Nevada at the moment, and contacted me about doing an engagement session at Matt's family ranch in Fairfield Montana during their visit. 

The property is a very 'rustic' setting, with barns, fields,  mountain background and even a farm cat. Any cowboy's dream place to be. We met a little before sunset to capture their love under the beautiful big sky of Montana. Their session was full of laughs, and cowboy boots. 

Congrats to this fantastic couple.
