Oregon Coast Couples Session – Hug Point
Before Tyler and I moved from Idaho to Oregon, these two-Alexandrea and Evan-scheduled a couples session with me. We met “face to face” over a video chat and talked about how they met and their relationship now. And let me just tell ya, they are two of the sweetest people. Not to mention they have the most adorable baby boy. (Who we snuck in some photos of!!)
Once we got to Oregon and a sunny day came around, we ran out to one of my favorite Oregon Coast beaches, Hug Point. It’s got the coolest little cave and rocks sticking out of the water. The first time I saw it just felt so surreal. I hadn’t realized just how magestic the Oregon Coast was until that day.
The whole session felt so relaxed. Alexandrea and Evan were so comfortable and easy to be around. I loved hearing their stories (Evan is a cop, so he had some fun things to tell!), and just enjoyed spending time with them. And holy crap, they have the calmest, most content baby I have ever met. He sat in the sand throughout the whole session (other than when they snuggled him up for a few pictures) and just watched his parents love on each other. It was so sweet and I was completely amazed.
By the end of the session, I felt like I had a pretty good feel for these two and their relationship. I could tell they were each other’s best friends, and how much they build each other up. They seemed like the essence of a strong relationship. It was such a beautiful thing to witness, and to get to capture.
I drove home from that session feeling so happy. I had the windows rolled down and the only *good* radio station (there’s so many weird stations out here!!) playing, and I couldn’t stop smiling. I probably looked like an idiot but I didn’t care.
That’s why I love photography. I love connecting with like-minded people who care more about memories than things. This was definitely a special memory-I loved being a part of it.
Thank you Alexandrea + Evan for trusting me to capture these moments.
