Myles and Chris are a perfect example of the type of people who make Portland so damn awesome. Myles is a super talented photographer and together she and Chris created Rugby, the band. (I highly recommend watching their latest music video, Bag of Bones, filmed in Astoria.)
The day we set out to photograph their love session the sun was bright, the car was full of a dozen different outfits, and I was beyond excited to finally catch my first glimpse of Rowena Crest.
For the first half of their session we decided to go with a casual vibe while we hiked a mile or so out to cliffs overlooking the Columbia River Gorge. Myles and Chris rocked their 90’s grunge inspired wardrobe like no one else while I tromped along in my typical black on black getup, nervous as hell about the camera crew following us around getting material for a promo video PICR created about my little photo biz.
After making our way out to the river and back we switched gears and went with something a little more dramatic while we watched the sun go down during the 2nd half of their session. Golden hour at Rowena Crest is absolutely magical and the sky matched Myles’s lavender hair perfectly, a sight you’ll have to see in my next blog post, Myles & Chris Part 2!
