Our Adventure Shoot in Portland, OR | JUSTIN LEE PHOTOGRAPHY
No, these aren't photos of our work you're seeing, they're photos of us. After booking our August trip to Portland, I knew I wanted to be photographed by a waterfall. We don't live near waterfalls, so it's the next best thing. Google searches were not turning up the photography I was looking for, until I stumbled upon Justin Lee. He was quick to respond, excited about our vision for the shoot, and hey - it's got to be fate with a name like "Justin Lee," get it? :) He had some great spots in mind and with adventure in our hearts, we drove/hiked/walked to them to capture these photos.
It's safe to say that most photographers forget to put the camera down and step in front of it. It's not my favorite place to be, but I realize that it's usually not my client's either. So with a little hesitation, Justin and I put ourselves in our clients' shoes and experienced booking a session from start to finish. Before doing so, I had no idea how stressful planning outfits were, or how hard it could be deciding on locations, or the tummy butterflies from worrying how they'll turn out. Now I know these feelings first hand and I keep those things in mind with every client. Bonus, we got photos of ourselves to hang up and share with our kids and grandkids someday. If there's anything I'd like documented about our lives right now, it's our passion for adventure and our deep friendship and love for one another. I think Justin did a wonderful job; here are some of our favorites.
