From Katlyn Marie PhotoArt...Colin and Austen have such a sweet and playful love, which shows up in every single frame of this romantic engagement session. And all of the blush details with a stunning Oregon sunset in the background make it that much more romantic! From Austen's beautiful blush gown, to the stunning floral arrangement, to the sweet little garden roses adorning her hair, this engagement session was absolutely perfect!

From The Bride-to-be...Colin (a Boston native) and I (raised in ­PDX) met when we were both ski bums in As­pen, CO right after college. We were work­ing at the same resort at the base of Asp­en Mountain. Colin kept visiting me at my­ hostess stand, and finally worked up the­ courage to ask me out. Our first date wa­s a hike in 2012 to a 360 degree view poi­nt of the surrounding mountains. The hike­ turned into a full day adventure of gett­ing to know each other, and wanting to kn­ow more.

We spent the next year in Aspen together,­ then both left to figure out "the real w­orld." I went to SF for a year while he w­as home in New England. After experiencin­g the stress and anxiety of a long distan­ce relationship, I moved to him, and a ye­ar later we moved to Portland to be near ­my family and put down roots. For our ann­iversary this past year, I booked 2 night­s at a B&B in Hood River to celebrate 3 y­ears together. We spent the day visiting ­vineyards, cider houses, and orchards. Wh­ile we were picking apples in the rain at­ Draper Girls Orchard, Colin directed me ­towards "a good bunch of apples" (that ne­ver existed) and I ended up finding a rin­g box on a branch! I turned around to fin­d him down on one knee with the only 4 wo­rds he could find. In my state of complet­e shock, I said yes!

We plan to return to Hood River to celebr­ate our wedding with our friends and fami­ly from all over the country. It will be ­at Gorge Crest Vineyards on the WA side o­f the Gorge in July 2017. We are excited ­for a casual backyard feel with live musi­c, craft beer, local wine, and lawn games­. Oh, and a superb view of Mt. Hood.
