Nena’s 99 Red Balloons Engagement Shoot

We can all agree that Nena’s 99 Red Balloons is a pretty great song. It also happens to be the inspiration for our next engagement shoot. When Heather heard the song she knew that it was the perfect theme for their engagement shoot. The bride and groom are both actually circus performers who found love. Their story is rather cute and you can read all about it by clicking here.

There are so many more darling photos that you must see. Click here to view all of them.

    amazingly beautiful photographs! very well done!

    I love that you did the photo session ON TOP of the bridge instead of UNDER the bridge! Being a girl from Portland sessions under the bridge are overrated and cliche. You are so creative and talented, you must be new here!

  17. -100. Terri Linden says:

    WOW!!! Utterly beautiful photos! Well done!! Such a great venue… LOVE the balloons. You are one very talented photographer!

  18. Captivating photos. Such warmth in them. My fave is the one where the lights are glowy…but I really thought your perspective was just perfect! :) They are the perfect amount of quirky-cute for the color of the bridge & the red pop of color! Sooo glad this was posted. :)
