Ecola State Park Engagement // Emily + Jeremy


So for the past month in Portland we've been having a crazy heatwave of like 95 degrees every day and scorching sun, so of course planning this coastal engagement shoot I was anticipating it to be pretty hot and sunny. But OF COURSE the Oregon coast never disappoints us with a total change in weather, I mean like going from 90 degrees to 55. But you all know me, I love me some foggy, moody goodness. And let me say this Ecola State Park engagement tops it as one of my favorite shoots ever! 

A little backstory on Emily + Jeremy, they met about year and a half ago in ITALY, *can we just take a second* and appreciate how freakin dreamy that is. Like wow, I was all heart eyes when they were telling me how they met in literally the most romantic place in the world. And let me tell ya, they are absolute fire! At first they were super shy at the beginning of the shoot, but when they started dancing on the cliff side, then they totally loosened up and their undeniable love for each other was shining through. Salty windswept hair, sweet kisses, and crazy laughs are what basically consisted of this whole shoot. When the thick fog started rolling in at dusk, the best part was that Emily convinced Jeremy to run into the freezing ocean water together, and sit in the wet sand, which of course resulted in some ultra funny + super romantic moments. Ahhh had so much fun with these two, and was so excited to edit these photos afterwards that I finished them all in like two days, haha. The saddest part though, is that I only get to photograph these two again on their wedding next summer in 2019, but still SO excited for their big day to come!
