Kelsie & Braden | Oregon Coast | Couple’s Session

Any time I have a chance to shoot on the Oregon coast, I’m there.  Kelsie reached out to me and wanted to hit the Cannon for some pictures of her and Braden while they were traveling through Portland on vacation.   What better way to take home some great memories than to do a session in one of the area’s most iconic spots?  These sessions are always a lot of fun – just like an engagement session.  We all get to run through the sand and water and have a blast, get a little exercise (sorry guys – nobody broke a sweat though!), and everything falls into place.  Thanks for reaching out to me Kelsie – it was great meeting you both!

Lacamas Park | Washington | Engagement

When your couple is willing to hike, jump over slippery rocks, and go running through the forest, you get good stuff!  I’m really excited about this post – Britt and Brian are really great people and this is the most fun I’ve had shooting in a while.  We beat around Lacamas Park outside of Camas for something like 3 hours.  It was very cathartic for me and we came out with some fun stuff.  I’m looking forward to sharing their big day next year!  Thanks for spending so much time with me guys – enjoy!

Even after living in Atlanta for a few years, I never made it to The Goat Farm Arts Center in Atlanta.  And after years of shooting Falls Park and other quintessential (read: over-done!!) Greenville spots for engagement sessions, I was hopeful for something different with character.  Shannon and Mike came up with this idea and it was the perfect venue to match their personalities, as well as break me out of the norm.  THANK YOU!  Very cool spot with tons of opportunities.  We definitely blew it out and if you’ve been checking the Instagram feed, you know that I’m loving the turn-out.  It’s been crazy hard deciding on which pictures to choose – so much awesomeness is overwhelming at times…  Enjoy!

This engagement shoot was a little different for me both in content and style.  Sarah is a ballerina and she and Wesley wanted to work that angle into their session, so I wanted the shoot to pay homage to the art of dance by being a little more artistic in its approach.  Drayton Mills allowed us to use one of their studio apartments and the vaulted ceilings, massive windows and exposed brick all came together perfectly with amazing natural light.  I loved the way this session turned out and am looking forward to sharing their big day later this year!

It always seems that I’m saying “I’m excited to share this post.”  But the truth of the matter is that generally speaking – I AM always glad to be sharing a post.  So…  I’m excited to be sharing this post of Emily and Jonathan.  We bounced all around Clemson and Anderson looking for the perfect country vibe, stopping along many streets and hills, dodging a couple of rain showers, and even driving under a rainbow.  No joke – we drive under a rainbow.  So there it is.  And here they are – enjoy!
