Leslie and Mark | North Portland Engagements

Leslie and Mark and I met up recently around the Mississippi area, which is their neighborhood and mine, so it worked out great! Leslie and Mark are kind, sweet and comfortable to just chill and talk with. We had coffee, went to Por Que No, (which is where they had their first date!) and took their dog to a secret beach to play. I love having real life engagement shoots that replicate what you, as a couple, do in your spare time! The results are fun, true and honest and also document a great time in your life by showing who and where you are as a couple. Leslie and Mark are planning to say I DO this upcoming August at the very hip Castaway space in NW Portland. I can’t wait to photograph their fun day!


Lisa - So cute! Love these photos, especially that one of Sammy! :)
