I first met Brianna and Preston at the Shorestyle Wedding Faire in Astoria, Orgeon this past winter! I had a booth there and hoped to break into the Oregon wedding world. I immediately liked Brianna and Preston and felt their connection! We made it official and then planned their engagement session which was amazing down on the Oregon coast! I learned right away that these two are very easy going and fun to work with!
As their wedding got closer, I got more and more excited about shooting in Oceanside, Oregon for my first official beach wedding!
I arrived early to scope out the area and wow, gorgeous. It was hot. Like 90+ hot, which is pretty uncommon here in our neck of the woods! There was a decent amount of sweating throughout the day but at the very end we walked down to the ocean to get our feet wet, cool off, and take some gorgeous sunset portraits before I called it a night. I had a long drive home but I was wide awake reflecting on my time with these two and their closest family and friends in Oceanside, Oregon. The people I met were amazing, the love around Brianna and Preston was so special and the food was delicious! And THE VIEW! The view overlooking the ocean where they had the reception at Oceanside Community Club Rental Hall was spectacular. We could not have had a more gorgeous setting. Brianna and Preston, I want to congratulate you two again on the rest of your lives together! I've only known you a short time, but you two truly are the real deal and I can't wait to watch your journey continue to unfold! I foresee a very happy and beautiful future ahead of you! Thank you for letting me play a small role in your story by documenting these precious moments.
