A little over a month ago I found a dress in our local store here in Tillamook called Phoenix Exchange. I went in and wasn't sure what I was looking for but new I would see it when I found it. I had almost given up hope when I spotted a piece of lace in the back of a closet. I wrestled through a mountain of prom dresses and pulled out what was at some point someone's dream wedding dress from an era long gone. It was an incredible site and it took my breath away. I knew immediately that I would be featuring this dress in my portfolio. I walked around the corner to one of Tillamook's finest florists and started explaining my vision and what I was hoping to accomplish with this stylized shoot. The gals at Sunflower Flats were quick to join in on my enthusiasm and partnered with me to bring my whole vision to life with garland, a floral headpiece and the core of my vision with a beautiful vertical bouquet along with a smaller bouquet perfect for any brides bridal toss bouquet.
April can be a blustery and rainy month for Oregon and last weeks shoot at Cape Lookout was no exception. We were faced with rain, wind, frigid temperatures and even hail with peaks of sunshine in between. The sea mist in the air provided an environment that was almost mystical in nature. The Oregon Coast can be such a magical place and as a newcomer here I am exploring constantly exploring and looking for that next beautiful backdrop that will be every couples dream for their engagement or wedding photos. Cape Lookout is a perfect marriage of trees and ocean views that will bring a stunning backdrop to anyone's love story.
