The land of enchantment… also known as the Oregon Coast. No matter how many days I spend here I miss it more and more when I’m away. I have these plans to live on the coast, out of my van and surf non-stop. An extended version of what I was able to taste with friends this summer at Indian Beach!
When Tom and Lyndsey found out that I was traveling through Oregon they reached out in hopes to have some photos taken of them in one of their favorite spots. I was psyched that everything would line up. I met them at one of our mutually favorite coffee shops, Sleepy Monk. We loaded up on espresso and set out to explore the massive trees and cliff sides of the Oregon Coast. A place where beauty and enchantment is present, whether rain, dark, light or shine.
Mat called me and asked if I would be up for doing part of their engagement session under water. Honestly, I didn’t think twice. I was in. Mat got his suit for pennies to the dollar at an estate sale and Kenzie picked her dress up at a local thrift store. Things could only go up from there!
Underwater housing has been added to the arsenal! I’m excited for all that is to come with this new family member! That being said, if you’re down for spending some time under water for your session then I’ll be there! Seriously. I dare you.
Have you high-fived a Park Ranger lately? During the 2013 government shutdown Sean and Allie got married under the Golden Gate Bridge, which happened to be closed and off-limits. Not only was there a drug bust right before they tied the knot but this Park Ranger rallied and assured them that they could carry on, marry up and enjoy life with their people on closed lands. Cheers to the good hearted!
Sean, Allie and their daughter Zuri traveled from Zurich to San Francisco for their wedding. I was psyched to spend the day with them and their family. Here are a handful of my favorite photos from the day.
I also got to work with Ted and Alanna of Modern 8 Films at this wedding. We worked together a few years back at a wedding in Beaver Creek, Colorado so it was pretty rad seeing them again! They document weddings on 8mm film. They’re pretty incredible, check them out! www.modern8films.com
