Years ago, my husband and I had our own photos taken at Sahalie Falls, Oregon. Consequently, that particular location has been a favorite waterfall ever since.
What I love most about Sahalie and Koosah Falls is how up close and personal you can get to them because there’s nothing quite like standing at the base of a waterfall to truly appreciate it’s power. However, if you’re not into getting that close, the viewpoint also offers incredible views from a higher angle. Consequently, when it came time to picking Marcella and Sam’s location for their waterfall photos, this area immediately sprang to mind.
MARCELLA & SAM
Thinking about heading to a waterfall for your own engagement or portrait session? Take a peek at Marcella and Sam’s photos for some inspiration! Then head on over here to make it happen!
A few things to keep in mind if picking a waterfall location:
The ground will be slippery! Surrounding vegetation and rocks are constantly being coated with a fine spray of water, resulting in muddy and slippery conditions. Make sure to wear proper footwear with a good, sticky sole and take your time when moving around.
You will get wet. You want waterfall photos, you’ll have to deal with the constant spray and mist swirling in the air. Plan your hair, make-up, and clothing with the thought of getting soaked in mind.
It can be dangerous: know your limits! If you’re not comfortable getting super close to the base of the falls, let your photographer know. We will never force you to do anything you don’t feel good about so there’s no shame in expressing your discomfort.
Have fun! This is an awesome opportunity for epic photos. Embrace the mud, the soaking mist, and the need to shout to be heard and have the time of your life.
