Impromptu Multnomah Falls Shoot | Oregon Photographer
So I had this little idea for a long time that I just couldn't get out of my head. I want to travel with my photography more. To places like California, Hawaii, Oregon and eventually Europe and South America. I came up with this idea to do a road trip styled shoot and work shop. But I didn't think any other photographers would be up for it, so I kept the idea to myself for a long time. But I just couldn't get it out of my head! So I finally made a post on a Facebook group and asked if anyone would be interested in doing this crazy hair brained idea with me, not expecting much of a response. Well I got back on Facebook an hour after making the post and WOW! There were so many people who loved the idea! We started group messages to figure out when and where. I reached out to my uncle who owns a condo on the Oregon Coast and he just happened to have some dates available for us to use his property! We eventually had to start turning people away once we figure out we could only take 8 people with us. We ended up with the perfect group of girls. Seriously, we all got along so well and everyone did their part in planning and the whole trip was a breeze. We all shared ideas and had a mini workshop where we all taught each other. And the styled shoots we put together were a DREAM! I can't image doing that trip with anyone else and I appreciated what each person brought to the table!
This shoot wasn't even on the agenda guys, but I'm so glad it happened! As we were driving to our condo in Otter Rock, I remembered this waterfall my family had visited previously on trips to the coast. I looked up the fall to see if we were going to drive anywhere close and to my pleasant surprise it was like a 5 minute detour and we were still coming up on it! I asked if the girls wanted to make a quick stop there, and one of our girls said she would put on a dress and model for us if we wanted to shoot there. I hadn't been to Multnomah Falls since I was a teenager, so it was really cool to get to stop and visit again! It was raining and cold, so we didn't shoot for long so that poor Shanya wouldn't freeze to death. You wouldn't know it from the photos, but there were so many tourists there!
