When I first met with Sonia + Julio I fell in love with them – he proposed to her in Paris for crying out loud! While I was upset I didn’t get to photograph them there, we knew we needed to pick a spectacular spot here at home to photograph their engagement, and as soon as I told them my idea of Cape Kiwanda out on the Oregon Coast they were 100% on board.
And guys, the location did not disappoint. It was spectacular. I finally got some of that moody PNW weather I’ve been hoping for, and it doesn’t hurt that Sonia and Julio (and Ruby!) were such troopers! It was cold, windy, and rainy, and they didn’t care at all – they believed in my vision and that the suffering would be worth it! They ran, jumped, kissed, and crossed over some wires and a ‘DANGER’ sign (I like to think it was more a suggestion), and I think it was so worth it.
Julio + Sonia, I can’t wait for your wedding next year! Thank you for picking me to tell your story!
