A Fall afternoon in Portland’s Pearl District with Hannah, Sam, & their corgi Lincoln.
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!
This is the 5th and final post from Angela & Bryan’s fabulous wedding celebration in Mexico’s Riviera Maya! We have already blogged about shooting under-the-radar at midnight in their hotel pool, Angela’s stunning bridal portraits, their sunset beach wedding ceremony, and photographing at night around Playa Del Carmen following the ceremony. After all of the festivities, we took a few days to relax and found ourselves outside the tiny village of Akumal, about 2 hours south of Cancun, snorkeling with turtles and stingrays in the surrounding lagoons. Bryan & Angela came out to meet us one afternoon and we took a few hours for a trash-the-dress session with a dress that Angela picked up for a bargain!
Yes, it is almost their first anniversary but it has been fun and tantalizing for these Portland photographers to revisit these images. Please enjoy the photos below, but if you are viewing from here in the Northwest we suggest you refrain from visiting any airline or travel-related websites for at least a day or so to avoid making any rash decisions to get out of town!
