Michael Mehaffey and Dana Warf recently hired me to photograph their wedding in Eugene, Oregon later this year. After our initial meeting to discuss wedding logistics, I suggested they visit me in Portland for a tour around the city. I knew Mike from our youth as skateboarders, and soon thereafter he moved to southern California, where he met his fiancé. Neither of them had been to Portland, however, and Dana was experiencing Oregon as a resident for the first time. It was a treat showing them the Columbia River Gorge, despite the bleak weather, and upon our return to the city we mildly transitioned into urban hikers. The photos that follow are of a more casual, documentary styled approach, and were a bonus to the day’s outings.
