Katie + Cole
Fun fact! Some of my absolute favorite memories are from all of the beach trips to the Oregon coast my family and I took as a kid. I grew up a little less than two hours from this coastal wonderland and could never get enough of it! Even on the cloudy, windy, down right cold days- I was always thrilled to be at the beach! Now that I live in Arizona, we don’t get many beach days being land locked and all so when I was headed back to the Oregon coast this March I knew I needed to shoot at one of my favorite places in the world- Cannon Beach, Oregon! Katie and Cole found me after I posted on social media that I’d be in town and a string of mutual friends connected us! I could not believe how many mutual friends we had, but had never crossed paths! It was definitely one of those small-world moments. When we got to the beach it was the most beautiful day- completely sunny, the beach was packed, but don’t let the sun and large amounts of people fool you- it was COLD. Katie and Cole were absolute champs though- they battled the cold throughout the shoot and we had the most amazing time taking in the views of Haystack Rock, running on the beach, and even attempting (and totally nailing) the airplane (your inner child knows what I’m talking about and if not scroll until you see what I mean)! By far, this is one of my favorite shoot to date – frozen fingers and all!
