3 Spark’s Lake Elopements That Show Off Oregon’s Natural Beauty

Jenn and Ryan are having a larger wedding ceremony this year but wanted to find some time to do elopement-style photos for just the two of them before their big day. We met at one of my favorite places along the Cascades Lakes Scenic corridor, which offers a clear view of South Sister.

I decided to photograph them on the volcanic rock outcroppings that looked over the lake for the last light of sunset. Central Oregon is so vibrant in late summer- it’s the perfect outdoor wedding venue!

From our vantage point on the rocks, we could see SUPs and canoes crisscrossing over Sparks Lake, and the shore was lined with tents and campervans. We left before the sky was completely dark, but I’m betting the star gazing is top notch too!

Wild Earth Weddings

You know, the one that always reminds you to bring extra socks on the overnight hike, and who definitely has the best podcasts queued up for the road trip.

From dreaming to planning, to the big day and after, I lend you my experience, my best ideas and inspiration, my favorite and most breathtaking locations, and the all cheering-on you need.

I create the space for you to feel easy, relaxed, and EXCITED as you treat yourselves to one heck of an adventure together.

More than epic photography

I believe that big weddings aren’t the right fit for everyone, and that your wedding day is an opportunity to do something different, something wild, and something completely unique.

I also believe that connecting with the earth connects you to your partner, and that wedding vows (and photos) are extra magical in the majestic landscapes of the American West.
