Carli and Justin wanted to do their engagement session in Astoria, Oregon because it was one of their first getaways together and still a place where they love to go with each other. I love when couples pick locations that are meaningful to them—it makes the photos and the whole experience that much more special. These two even stayed in a cute AirBnb and made a whole little mini vacation out of our weekend photo shoot! I want your engagement session to be so much more than just a few hours of snapping photos—I want you to have an amazing experience of getting to work with, act with, play with and laugh with your partner. I want it to bring you both closer together and help you feel even more comfortable and confident on your wedding day. I think you can see the love, the laughter and the closeness in these photos we made together on a stormy day in Astoria. They make me happy and I hope they make you happy too.
