«– When Casey and Mike started dating, they often walked past this location to sit on a bench overlooking the river. We started their engagement session here, by Mike’s old apartment. This two block walk is special to them because they spent so much time in their early relationship talking about life and love in this very spot. Whether photographing a family or engaged couple, Portland portrait photographers Turn Loose the Art always plan a portrait session around significance to the subjects.
