Summer nights at Cannon Beach, Oregon

Summer nights at Cannon Beach, Oregon

If anyone knows Hannah + Cole, they know just how perfectly in love with each other they are. It's no often that I meet a couple that still can't stop taking pictures of each other, oogling over how cute they are, and enjoy having their photos taken because that means they get to be close to each other. These two are inseparable in the most perfect way. They are what I want to feel inside, and they wear it all on their sleeve. They are open, intentional, accepting, forgiving, who deeply love and aren't afraid of the consequences.

Sometimes, you just need to go to a waterfall in the middle of the week and sit at a lookout until the sun goes down. Spending time with your person is just as important as all the other big things in life. I know I'm usually sharing couples getting married and engaged, but I've found that it's all the little things in-between that matter the most. Silver Falls is one of my favorite places in Oregon, there's this 10 waterfall hike you can do that is pretty incredible. All to say, take the night off, stop watching Netflix, get outside, and spend some real undistracted time with your loved ones, because it's a big deal.

Long summer nights on the Columbia River Gorge 

Baylee is a friend and fellow photographer in Portland and it was such a treat to capture her and her husband along the Gorge, near the place where they were married just 1 short year ago. Places are so significant to me and when I get to infuse their story in a love story, I feel everything.

From the first time I talked to these two, I knew right away that they were the most relaxed, down to earth couple and we would all have so much fun together.  They had found this spot on Canon Beach where the tide goes down far enough to access a different, secluded beach, and their dream was to have a little private table setting, in the water, as the sun was going down.  It was nothing short of amazing. 
Then we spent the rest of the daylight dancing in the waves and I just stood back and captured these two playful souls be together just as they are.
