{Suzie + Wayne} Pre-Wedding Engagement Photos; Tumalo Falls, Central Oregon

July 12th, 2011

Recently, we had the pleasure of meeting up with soon-to-be married Suzie + Wayne to accompany them back to some very special places around Central Oregon.  When we do a pre-wedding engagement session, we always ask the couple if they have any special places they would like to go.  These two decided to bring us to this special cave where Wayne popped the question – right beside Tumalo Falls from the bottom.  It’s kind of a secret trail (and adventurous trail hiking in heels for sure) but wow, how spectacular to be almost underneath the power of the falls.  Well done, Wayne – not only did you pick a spectacular place, you nabbed a wonderful woman in the process 🙂

Suzie is the owner at Namaspa Yoga and Massage, which is where we first met.  We were told that Wayne wasn’t a ‘picture guy’ – but that’s what an engagement session will do, it’s a warm up for the wedding day in that respect!  We all had a lot of fun and Wayne’s theatricality came out as the day was full of smiles, funny faces (see below) and an awesome hat!

Suzie + Wayne, congratulations!  Thanks for choosing us to capture some candids of the two of you; we wish you all the peace, health and happiness that life can offer you two.

On our way to the falls, this glorious tree just couldn’t be passed.

Byron is under the falls here, without a shirt – oh the things we do for a picture 🙂

After they changed into their dressy wears, we nabbed several before the mosquitoes got the best of us.

Dramatic light suited these two perfectly and the sunset was too good to pass up.
