I remember seeing Deception Pass for the first time as a kid. The bridge is awe inspiring and it’s absolutely incredible to walk across. It’s pretty close to where my aunt and uncle live on Whidbey Island and as soon as I crossed over the bridge on my way to visit them, I felt like I was on the home stretch. It’s always a fun place to photograph and honestly, so diverse! Every spot at Deception Pass has a different vibe to it, which I love! Meaning this shoot with Brittani and Chance from last fall is rocking a totally different look than Jason and Deirdre’s Deception Pass session, which is a total dream for a photographer.
By the way, if you recognize Brittani and Chance, it might be from another anniversary session I had with these two at the lovely Diablo Lake. It always means a lot to me when I have repeat clients. One, it’s a total confidence booster that they had so much fun in front of the camera last time, they’re totally down to do it again! Two, it’s awesome going into a shoot when you already adore the couple to pieces. And three, it’s just plain fun to catch up with people.
Chance, Brittani & I walked around Deception Pass for a while before we found this little beach tucked away from all the action. We enjoyed some of the wooded areas that DP has to offer before finding this gem of a beach. It was a gorgeous night and I knew tons of people would be out enjoying the fresh air and scenery. But whenever possible, I love finding places for my couples to enjoy all to themselves for their session with me. We found this little gem at sunset and I fell completely in love. It has a classic PNW beach vibe but also has these super cool rock formations that I just love.
I’m an adventurous wedding photographer moving to the west coast after 3 months of living the nomadic life on the road. Before we cozy down in our new home in Washington State, Caleb and I will be traveling and photographing in North Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, and Washington State.
