You’ll never believe these photos were shot in the middle of February. On the Oregon coast. Where, in August, the water is barely warm enough to dip your toes into.
Mother Nature was on our side that day — the air was unseasonably warm and there was no rain until literally the second after we called the shoot a wrap. And then we were gifted a double rainbow (photo at the bottom). A magical day, indeed.
We left Portland before the sun was up and arrived in Florence, OR about 4 hours later. The day was full of champagne, laughter, and a lot of hard work to photograph 10 looks before the sun went down (mission: accomplished on that last one).
Everything went incredibly smooth thanks to lots of pre-shoot organization by LeoRevolt founder LeAna Leo and stylist Martine LeLievre.
These are some of the best photos I’ve ever taken. My dream is to photograph beautiful ladies in front of stunning backdrops. Apparently I’m living the dream, baby.
I had to dedicate a photo gallery in my portfolio to this lovely day on the Oregon coast — click here to view more photos from this shoot.
These photos wouldn’t have been possible without the stars aligning to bring the rest of this wonderful team together.
Hair + makeup by Brooke Morse Creative. It was a blast to work with the beautiful models Skye Sengelmann and Keeley DiPietro. Big props to Lacey Lee, Charlie Allen, and Terry Leo for the super helpful extra sets of hands.
