Here’s our list of the best spots for engagement photos in the Portland, Oregon area!

Eastbank Esplanade

We love taking couples to the Eastbank esplanade for their engagement photos. There’s a paved path that leads all along the Willamette River. As a result, you’ll get sweeping views of the city of Portland skyline and its famous bridges. Couples love this location for engagement pictures because its urban, a little gritty and shows off the city of Portland buildings.

Rocky Butte

Rocky Butte is perched on a butte overlooking the city. Hence it’s name, Rocky Butte! From atop the butte, aka a hill, you can see sweeping views over the city and Mount Hood in the distance.

Northwest 23rd

There’s something uniquely intimate and romantic about Portland’s Northwest 23rd neighborhood. Couples love the local shops, authentic dining and casual atmosphere.
