Why only have one day of fun when you can add on a session like this Painted Hills adventure session before or after your elopement day?
Corri and Mike eloped in a ghost mine in Central Oregon. But they also wanted the excuse to explore somewhere else and have that documented too. The Painted Hills were relatively close by, so we stuck around an extra day and explored the Painted Hills National Monument together.
There is something I want to be very clear about when it comes to this Painted Hills Adventure Session. If you visit, do NOT step on the hills. On top of being disrespectful, it consequently damages the pristine hillside for future visitors. Furthermore, it also damages the geologic data that the hills have. The Painted Hills contain information that educates us about ancient environments. Similarly, some other units in the larger John Day Fossil Beds area house the best specimens of mammal fossils in the United States.
As an Oregon elopement photographer, I feel a session like this is the perfect way to document an adventure. Firstly, it gives you a completely new setting/backdrop. Secondly, it’s another excuse to connect with each other in front of the camera, especially if it’s before your elopement. You can use it as a warm up and a fun intro session before the big day!
Moreover, you can totally read the connection through the images. That extra time in front of the camera translates to more intimate and natural looking images when you receive your full gallery.
