Step into the magical realm of Hoyt Arboretum, nestled in the heart of Portland, Oregon, where Everly and Levi embarked on a whimsical journey for their forest-themed engagement photos. With towering trees, dappled sunlight, and the delightful presence of their beloved golden retriever, Armstrong, this enchanting location provided the perfect backdrop for capturing their love amidst nature’s splendor.
Captivating Forest Scenery at Hoyt Arboretum
Hoyt Arboretum offers an awe-inspiring tapestry of lush greenery, majestic trees, and meandering trails, making it an ideal setting for couples seeking a nature-filled engagement photoshoot. Everly and Levi found themselves surrounded by the tranquil serenity of the forest, creating an ethereal atmosphere that perfectly complemented their love story.
We spent the beginning of our session walking the trail to Redwood Deck and chatting about their upcoming wedding! Everly and Levi are looking forward to a gorgeous, intimate wedding day with all of their favorite people. I learned that they love to go on hikes and camping – Everly even wore her Teva shoes between shots and pretty much sold me on buying some myself!
Including your dog in your forest engagement photos
No engagement shoot would be complete without the adorable presence of Armstrong, the couple’s playful and lovable golden retriever. With his wagging tail and infectious energy, Armstrong added an extra layer of joy and spontaneity to the session. His boundless love stole the spotlight and created heartwarming moments that are some of my favorite photos ever!
