Sometimes, you just need to go to a waterfall in the middle of the week and sit at a lookout until the sun goes down. Spending time with your person is just as important as all the other big things in life. I know I'm usually sharing couples getting married and engaged, but I've found that it's all the little things in-between that matter the most. Silver Falls is one of my favorite places in Oregon, there's this 10 waterfall hike you can do that is pretty incredible. All to say, take the night off, stop watching Netflix, get outside, and spend some real undistracted time with your loved ones, because it's a big deal.

I don't often get to work locally since I live in a small Northern California town, so when these two contacted me to spontaneously do an engagement shoot while they were in town, I was so excited.  We went to one of the best waterfalls in the world, just 1 hour from Redding, and got completely soaked, as usual, while the tourists watched us like we were crazy.  Been there before. Meagan + Gavin were so sweet, and we had such a blast hanging out together.  Their love for each other just pours out of every image.  You can tell just how much they love being with each other.
