Casual Couple’s Session at Carrie Lynn’s Plants, Michael & Cheyenne by Oregon Elopement Photographer Black Salt Photography

"Casual Couple's Session at Carrie Lynn's Plants, Michael & Cheyenne" by Oregon Elopement Photographer Black Salt Photography

This casual couple's session at Carrie Lynn's Plants on Fremont was just what I had in mind when I pictured sitting in a room surrounded by fresh plants. It's hard to go wrong with something leafy, and when you're surrounded by hundreds of them, it naturally relaxes you.

Carrie Lynn's Plants promotes an eco-friendly, chill, woman-empowerment vibe with their local artwork and vintage furniture. There's a little bit of something for everyone when you walk through their doors. Also, they love seeing your photos! Pop a squat and pose next to your fav cactus next time you visit.

Michael & Cheyenne, this rad couple I'm featuring, were more than willing to snuggle up on the velvet orange couch. Let me tell ya, this couch doesn't want you to leave. You sit and sink deeeeep within, like a generous hug. A couch hug.

After following these two on Instagram for a bit, I could tell they loved natural adventures. This cute, down-to-earth couple's session was right in line with their lake-swimming, park-laying, day-to-day schedule. Doesn't it just sound like a dream?
