Ahhh I LOVED Joseph & Kenzie’s engagement session in Lincoln City, Oregon SO much!!

Joseph actually first reached out to me wanting to capture his proposal to Kenzie. But with COVID messing up a few things this past year, he ended up adapting his plans and popped the question while their families were at the coast together! He had her walk down the coast until she came up on a whole setup he’d prepared at the end of the shoreline. It was super intimate, private, and SO special for the two of them!


The Session

For our engagement session in Lincoln City, Oregon, we hiked a steeeeep hill for about fifteen minutes, but the view at the top was breathtaking. From the top, you could see the entire coastline of Lincoln City and the waves crashing below. The trail to the top of the cliffside was through a forest. So for their engagement session we shot in the sunshine in the forest! And at the end, right as the sun was setting. they ran through the ocean and loved on each other as the sun set past the waves.

Their entire session was filled with fun, joy, and ENERGY! They compliment each other perfectly and their humor and energy was so perfect for this day. I cannot wait for their wedding in August!


Sweet Words From the Couple

“Working with Michelle was amazing! Right at the beginning of the session, the interaction felt relaxed and natural. She made us feel really comfortable and helped us own the camera. It never felt awkward or forced and we appreciated how encouraging and excited she was! Joey and I’s favorite moment was when we went down to the beach. We splashed in the ocean, but Michelle encouraged all of it and those photos were some of our favorite photos!”
