You know it’s gonna be good when your couple drives 16 hours roundtrip in one DAY just to make magic with you. Isaiah and Victoria have become some of my biggest supporters and dearest friends since we photographed this styled elopement at the Alvord Desert! It will seriously give you allll the boho, edgy desert wedding inspiration.
I went on a little road trip around Oregon last year with a few fellow creatives, and we made a stop at the Alvord Desert! It’s one of the coolest places in Oregon and sits at the wayyyy southern edge of the state.
The Shoot in the Alvord Desert
We got the coooolest weather while we were there!! It was pouring rain before we started shooting, and then stopped basically right when we started our shoot. Talk about meant to be! We photographed Isaiah & Vic under huge storm clouds, with the sun popping out for about five minutes at the beginning. Vic started off wearing a super gorgeous black buttoned dress with a black leather jacket and black boots. Isaiah wore a black and white patterned shirt that paired perfectly with Vic’s solid black!
Then we got to watch a huge lightning show in the clouds for a while, which was awesome to witness in such an epic location! At this point, they had changed into some more “formal” black outfits and WOW they rocked their outifts. To end the shoot, we got a gorgeous sunset and the clouds were STUNNING.
I cannot rave enough about @victoriya.l & @imdei7 – they are just the most genuine, thoughtful, and passionately & wildly in love couple out there. I’m SO excited to work with them more and to watch their love blossom and grow everyday. And since our shoot, they’ve actually made their own Instagram account (@zayvic) and have been doing a bunch of modeling for other photographers!!
Here’s a little introduction that they shared recently on their new page –
“Hey everyone! We thought we’d hop on here and introduce ourselves! We’re Isaiah + Victoria , and adventurous, God fearing couple who love to meet new people and spend time together , and we make up this account ! We met through Instagram a year ago, and the rest is history from there (thank you social media hahah) 😅 We both currently live in Oregon , Isaiah in Albany OR, And Victoria in Portland OR.
We’ve recently gotten into couple modeling and we absolutely love how it allows us to meet and make new friends through it, while creating magic , and getting to spend time with one another 🤩”
So if you’re a photographer and ever need an amazing couple in the PNW, hit these two up!! They’ll rock your shoot and bring allll your visions to life. I adore these two beyond words!
