Melina and Matt’s Oregon Engagement Session

Oregon engagement
The promise of a new year is exciting, but what’s even more thrilling is the promise of sharing a lifetime of new years with the one you love. To celebrate their engagement, high school sweethearts Matt and Melina took to the charming riverside in Wilsonville, Oregon.

The two of them grew up together, sharing a journey from their prom nine years ago to their beachfront proposal in Cabo. Their portrait session pays tribute to the place that holds some of their favorite memories, from fishing to boating to relaxing with family.

What’s so special about photographs is that they never change, and Jamie Rae Photo beautifully captured Matt and Melina’s effortless connection. Their portraits are real, romantic moments that will stay constant, just like they have been for one another:

Broken relationships in our families, people we care about struggling with addiction, and death of loved ones to name a few. We have been a constant in each others’ life within the chaos it has brought at times.I am so thankful that I have found someone who is the first person I want to celebrate with on happy days and cry with on sad. He is my family. ”
