Mt Adams Wedding

This late summer Mt Adams wedding was what every small to midsize wedding should be. If you have under 50 people just copy this playbook and you’ll be set.

  1. book an awesome location
  2. focus on family and food
  3. just let loose and have a blast

Originally when I booked these two they made it a point to tell me they just wanted to have a great day with their friends and family and really wanted to hire me for candids(what I usually get hired for). Driving out to the location I knew I was in for a treat because the house was located in one of my favorites spots out here in the PNW…near Mt Adams.

Mt. Hood gets most of the love from us Portlanders but Mt Adams is just as rad and is even rumored to have UFO’s an lights that come in and out of the mountain which I just think is super cool.

We didn’t have any views of the mountain that day thanks to the wildfire smoke that was still lingering but it did make for some nice mood light.

This wedding was also one of my favorites from last year. You can see my Year in Review for many of my favorite moments here

Mountains and Valleys

Mt Adams is far more remote than Mt Hood in terms of vendors. So keep that in mind if you decide to elope/get married out that way. I will say though it’s a totally different feel out there and I absolutely love it. Hard to put into words honestly so at the risk of sounding weird I won’t.

I don’t shoot many big weddings anymore, usually my head count is under 25. A 50 person has been big lately thanks to covid. This one was just the right size and the people just let loose and had a blast. It’s what I’d want out of a wedding if I was getting married. Focus on friends/family/fun. I just tried to capture as many memories as possible for them since the family all live apart now. Hope you guys enjoy this one as much as I did.

If you’re wanting to elope or have an engagement on the Oregon coast or up in Washington¬†at other amazing elopement locations like Artist Point at Mt. Baker…please get in touch. I know many many many great spots and I’m happy to share the beauty of Oregon with you.
