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.

Havasu Falls Adventurous Engagement

When Tina + Matt suggested the idea of doing their engagement session here, I didn’t hesitate for a second, and we went straight to work, sorting out permits and travel details. The location itself is no easy feat. Driving from LA on only a few hours of sleep, Tina + Matt met us at the trailhead and we hiked in 10 miles to the most breathtaking waterfall we could ever imagine. The water was so unbelievably blue and next to the red desert rocks it’s like no other place in the entire world. We slept out under the stars, giddy as ever to shoot the next day. We woke up early before the other hikers arrived and had the whole place to ourselves. The whole trip was such an unforgettable experience, and the most inspiring place to capture their love and spend time together. This is definitely my favorite shoot of all time.
