Brookings, Oregon Backyard Wedding

- RT and Mandy -

It was my busiest/craziest weekend of the year. There is always that one. Every wedding season somehow the wedding/portrait world come together to create the ultimate weekend. This year it came in the form of driving to Brookings, Oregon for an engagement session and wedding and then flying out the next morning to Bozeman, Montana for a second wedding. A few other things in between too, but the other thing about these weekends it that it usually ends up to be some of my favorite work from the whole year... and this year has not let me down.

As I was nearing Brookings it was sunny and warm... and then the Oregon Coast did it's thing and boom, I was in the fog. It was literally only like 1 mile of fog, but in the exact location that I was to be meeting RT and Mandy for their engagement session. It wasn't what I planned on or expected (I should have known better), but as you can see it turned out pretty awesome. I love the rich colors and soft background... and of course the super cute couple :)

Just wait until you see their wedding!! It will not disappoint. Promise. 

Kyler and Erin | Olympia, Washington

Kyler and Erin are adorable, there’s no question about that. On an afternoon that had a forecast for rain, rain, and more rain… somehow the skies decided to open and gave us a perfect Northwest afternoon. I had a fun afternoon exploring Olympia, Washington for the first time. Priest Point park is gorgeous and if you ever get the chance to go, do it. With trails lined with lush ferns and moss covered trees that wind down to the rocky water’s edge it makes for an intimate and beautifully, romantic setting. I couldn’t have asked for a better day with some amazing people in a gorgeous location. Come back soon to see Kyler and Erin’s a-mazing wedding held right here in Bend!

You can also view Kyler and Erin’s sweet engagement session on Le Magnifique Blog here. Happy weekend everyone!

Brad and Kaitlyn | Laguna Beach, California

This is probably one of my very favorite engagement sessions to date. Not only because they are some of the most adorable people ever, but because Kaitlyn is like my little sister. I have watched her grow up from her sweet little bowl cut into this stunning and intelligent woman. I am so happy these two wonderful people found each other and that they decided that they cannot imagine their lives without the other in them. I cannot wait until their wintery wedding this December, so until then I hope you enjoy these cute, beachy engagement photos
