The Pacific Northwest is beautifully unpredictable. After scouring the forecast for a day that was predicted to be sunny and dry, I strolled up to Discovery Park Beach to be met by dreary dark clouds and rain. The wind was intense! Shannon & Hayden were already on their way, and I knew we were in for an adventure together!
Truthfully though, one of my favorite things to incorporate into images are the natural elements; water, rain, wind, fire… it adds movement and life into the photos! With the wind howling around us for the duration of our time together, we had PLENTY of it, too.
Shannon & Hayden were such troopers during our time together. Despite the freezing cold, they laughed together, snuggled up on the driftwood, and were just completely wonderful to work with. I am in love with the way the wind caught Shannon’s hair & dress in these images. It might not have been the weather we expected, but I think it worked out for the better!
Hayden & Shannon, thank you for taking a stroll on the beach with me! I cannot wait for your September wedding!
