Rocky Butte is an amazing location for portraits or weddings. Rocky Butte is an extinct volcanic cinder cone butte right outside of Portland, Oregon.
It has hiking trails leading up to it and once you get to the top you are rewarded with an amazing 360 degree view of Portland and the Columbia River. On a clear day you can see the entire Cascade mountain range.
The summit of Rocky Butte is a Portland city park, Joseph Wood Hill Park. The summit is also noted on maps as Rocky Butte Natural Area, even though it is well developed.
At sunset it makes for some beautiful photographs. We’ve done multiple portraits shoots up here and rain or sun it never disappoints.
