Shayna and Ryan were such a cool, laid back couple to shoot with. They were totally up for exploring some locations I had been scouting out for a while. If you are wondering about how I choose my photography locations, I always keep my eyes out for what looks photographically interesting to me as well as has good lighting, accessibility, etc. When I meet with you to plan your shoot I always ask what kind of “feel” or “mood” you are going for because we’ll want to guide the location, outfit, and prop decisions by that theme. Since you guys are always so fun and creative, more often then not you’ve been doing some scoping out too and have some ideas on where to start, but if not, I’m all there to make some suggestions. This old house was something I had my eye on for a while, and when Shayna said she wanted something classic and rustic I knew it was time to head out there for their engagement photographs. Locations (as well as props and outfits) can bring so much into the final photographs. I would encourage you, if you are thinking about scheduling some portrait or or engagement photographs, think about getting creative with your location! Do you know anyone who has a ranch, an old barn, or an orchard? Have fun with it and it makes your final photographs totally and uniquely yours!

Megan and Brian are a delightful couple. They are sweet and caring, laid back and goofy. And being able to shoot their engagement portraits in Cannon Beach was such a treat for me. Our family has a long history of vacationing in Cannon Beach so it hold a special place in my heart as well as the couple’s. The day was cold and foggy but it was a delightful break from the record wind gusts and rain in the days preceding. We braved it like champs and had fun frolicking in the tall grass over by where Ty + Katie‘s pictures were taken. In fact I even saw Katie as we were roaming about Cannon Beach’s quaint little downtown! Megan and Brian, thank you for such a fun filled afternoon and Cannon Beach weekend!
