This engagement session at Government Cove Peninsula in the Columbia River Gorge, are some of my new favorites! Government Cove is such an epic PNW engagement session location! This location has it all, the river, views of the gorge, interesting cliffs and rock formations, trees and other overgrown nature goodness.

Choosing the perfect engagement session location for you and your lovebug can feel like a daunting task. There are so many fantastic locations to choose from in just the Portland area alone. Expand that radius to just 45 miles, and you literally get hundreds of more options! If you’re looking for quintessential PNW vibes, with lots of variety all in one central location, then this may be one to consider. And, it’s only about 1 hour from Portland!
These two live in California, but planned their wedding for Portland. We met at Government Cove for their engagement session during one of their visits to the area! We spent about an hour exploring the entire peninsula. These two were so much fun to work with and up for anything I suggested! Plus, the timing was perfect, as there were a ton of purple wildflowers blooming, and it felt so magical walking through all of them. And, the golden hour light really gave us a show. The colors of the river and gorge were so vibrant. I could have photographed here for hours, and can’t wait for the next session there.
