Oregon Wedding Photographer | Bobby + Melanie | Bend, OR Engagement Session

Carli + Beau Engagements

Happy Tuesday friends!! Anyone else feel like its actually Monday though?

Those Monday holidays always throw me off – and now my week just seems so different going into today! haha – O well, we are cranking out things over here in our office and I just can’t wait to share with you this incredible Oregon engagement session.

Melanie + Bobby got together with us in Bend, OR in late July to shoot this session. They lived here for a time and it holds a special place in their hearts. For us, we were able to go to that area last November to shoot a wedding in Sunriver, OR, and we FELL IN LOVE. So much so that as soon as Melanie asked me if Bend would be an option for their session I didn’t even think twice! We made it happen and not only got to capture these two and their beautiful love story, but we got to spend about 4 days in Sunriver again and we had the best time.

If you’ve never been to this area before, you are missing out!

We started our session in downtown Bend which is seriously so adorable. Melanie + Bobby brought along their gorgeous pup for some of our shoot, and they took me to the place where Bobby proposed to Melanie. It was so great to get to know them better, and to hear all about their travels, and adventures since they started dating.

After venturing around the park and river, we headed out to Todd Lake. You guys, it was magical! I love the mountains so much and anytime we get to explore new places it makes us so happy! The only downside was the mosquitos were INSANE. Haha – you would never be able to tell by these photos, but we were all getting eaten alive. It was pretty bad! However these two toughed it out with me, and we got some really amazing photos!

Bobby + Melanie are tying the knot later this month at Melanie’s parents place in Idaho and we cannot wait! Be on the lookout for their gorgeous wedding we will share once its arrived!
