Growing up in Oregon has given me a love for trees and I will always love being in the middle of the forest. Felt like home while I was photographing this engagement session in the middle of the tall trees! It was such amazingly fun adventure! We walked amongst the redwoods (well sorta ran since we only had 30 minutes before the park closed) and then went to the beach. The best of both worlds! These two were amazing and I loved all their laughing, making faces at each other and seeing the connection between the two of them! I’m thinking I’ll have to do an Instagram of their funny face outtakes for sure.
I’ve known Jenny for many years now and photographed her when she was a senior in high school. When I found out that she got engaged to her high school sweetheart, Michael, on the beach in Washington State I was so very excited for the two of them. They’ve been dating for several years now and I was just waiting to see an engagement announcement post online. I am sure a few others were waiting for that post too!
They both love trees and some of Jenny’s favorite trees are the redwoods. We searched high and low and put a lot of time into finding the perfect location and Jenny finally stumbled upon a spot with a few redwood trees that wasn’t too far away. Once we arrived we noticed a sign letting us know that the park closed at 6pm which, as I said above meant that we had just 30 minutes to hike down to the redwoods and get some amazing photos. I’m so glad we did though and I have a feeling that Jenny and Michael are glad too. Thank you Jenny & Michael for the fun time and being amazing to work with! Love you guys and I can’t wait for your wedding this August at 440 Seaton!
