When I first met Liz & Erick, they told me that they were planning to rent an AirBnB fire lookout tower to get ready in! I was so on board. This little quaint Airbnb was a dream to photograph in. There are various levels - there's one for sleeping and even one for just lounging in. You can sit back, read a good book, and feel the warm sunshine on your skin. You can cook up a breakfast, or take a seat in their cutest hammock-like swing. When the sun goes down, you can even star gaze and see many constellations on clear nights.
These two eloped at Smith Rock State Park which is known for it's beautiful rock formations and the Crooked River which whirls it's way through the canyon. It's a must if you like to rock climb, or if you're an adventurous hiker. You can also access most of the scenic overlooks with a short walk from the parking lot if you prefer to stay off the hiking trails.
I am always so excited when I'm able to photograph engagement sessions or elopements at such a beautiful park in Central Oregon. It is definitely a must see if you are ever staying close by at Sunriver or Bend. Make a daytrip out of it and explore the wonders that this State Park has to offer.
