You know a couple is special when they are willing to drive 4+ hours to the coast for a 2 hour shoot, and their smiles look as genuine and fresh as if they were in their own backyard! After meeting with Anna a few months ago and hearing her describe her love of natural colors and textures we decided the Oregon Coast would be a perfect location for their engagement shoot. When we originally planned the shoot, they were going to fit it into a longer road-trip. However, it turned out meeting for the shoot a little earlier worked better for their schedules so they decided to use the there-and-back drive (about 8 hours) as a good excuse for some quality time together. They obviously enjoy each other’s company, as their positive energy and love for each other really shined through during the shoot!
The dunes and beach-grass near Manzanita were a perfect backdrop, and despite the intermittent rain showers Anna & Billy truly embraced the moment. We are excited to spend more time with them and photograph their waterfront wedding on Puget Sound this summer!
