Negar & Merhdad are such a sweet couple! They have a easy-going, fun way about them and it really made for a special evening at their engagement session. Negar reached out after a co-worker of hers referred me to her! So thankful for the repeat clients and the clients who want to share the love with others! Thank you Amanda!

Starting at the Vancouver, Washington Waterfront she had a beautiful long-train lace dress and him in the blue suit! The sun shining down on them was a perfect afternoon for an engagement session, when the sun shines in the PNW it’s always a good day for a photoshoot.

Down on the beach from the waterfront walkway, there is beautiful beachy greenery that looks amazing in photos.

Little do you know, there was a bunch of runners running by in this shot. Thank goodness for spot removal. It was such a hot day for running but it was impressive how many people were out on the waterfront running away!

Then we made our way down to the Eastbank Esplanade in Portland.

They met at school, going to pharmacist school. On the first day the teacher said “look to the right, etc” and there she was!

They hit it off & now here they are engaged! Both Pharmacist graduates! Such a cool story.

Sunset is the best time for photoshoots, the soft light coming past the buildings across the water.

Congratulations Negar & Merhdad!!

This is one of my favorite shots, him smiling at her, the movement of her dress, the soft sunset, the cityscape of Downtown Portland, and the cute steamboat in the water.

    Natalie took our engagement photos and she was sooo amazing and sweet. She made us feel at ease and not feel as awkward. My fiancé hated the fact that we had to do photos but after our session was over he said that wasn’t bad at all and that’s only because of her making it so easy and constantly giving us posing guides.
    He even said WE SHOULD BOOK ANOTHER SESSION WITH HER… this coming from a guy who absolutely hates photos means a lot.
    Of course as we already expected, we got our photos back and we loved it. She is amazing and I would 100% recommend her to anyone.

    • Negar, thanks for your sweet comments! I loved working with you guys and I’m so glad you did too! The city backdrop from your session was so pretty & your outfits matched it perfectly.
      – Natalie
