Fran and Luke and I met up one chilly morning a couple months ago to explore one of my favorite parts of the Oregon Coast together. Their wedding is back in Texas on Fran's family ranch, but they wanted their engagement photos to capture the essence of their new home, to share with friends and family. We chose a beach by Manzanita that had all the perfect 'Oregon' things to offer. Jutting rock faces, a beautiful waterfall and a forest hike with amazing views!
Frances is an actual model, so the cold temps didn't stop her from making the shoot look warm and cozy. That, combined with the way Luke was always looking at Fran with googlie eyes, and the way she was always cracking up at his jokes, made them a serious dream to shoot. I'll let the absurd amount of photos do the rest of the talking!
