Nothing like grabbing a pint at your favorite brewpub while having your engagement images captured!

Dani and Travis joined me at my studio in the Academy in downtown Vancouver, WA and then we headed up to their favorite spot to grab a drink, Brothers Cascadia.

Starting at the historic building located on the Academy grounds, the old brick is always one of my favorites.

And I will never complain if you bring your furry friends along. I love how their dog was always wanting to be in the middle of them both. It made for some great portraits with him involved.

Being December, the rain came along so we thought why not utilize the porch right outside my windows. The Academy was built in 1871 by Mother Joseph and has a big part of Vancouver’s history. So I love being able to include the bricks an architecture where I can. Including the spiral staircase inside and the awesome from the entrance.

And you know if there is rain, we are going to go play in it.

After playing around in the rain, we packed up and headed up for some drinks at Brothers Cascadia in Hazel Dell.

The brewery was gracious enough to let us play around (as long as we didn’t crash someone’s good time) and even gave the newlywed couple some pints to pose with…and drink.


We were able to shoot at one of the tables lined with all of their barrels as well as utilize the loft they have above the bar. I have always lvoed the looks of old barrels, so it framed Dani’s gorgeous opal ring perfectly.

A HUGE thank you to the staff and manager there that let us do this. We didn’t interfere with anyone else AND the couple got a few congratulations along the way!

Congratulations to Dani and Travis!
