He immediately noticed her. And not being bashful he asked her if she would go out with him. She turned him down as she was seeing someone. A few months later- she noticed him. She hoped he would be bold enough to try again. And you know, he was brave! Asking once again, she agreed. And as Kirsten recalls “the rest is simply history”.
Hiking dates followed. One after another. She recalls knowing she was madly in love with John when they would find themselves sitting in the car watching the stars above through his car’s sunroof–denying the fact that the night had to end.
They now find themselves planning a beautiful Oregon Coast wedding in the fall. After spending the afternoon hiking with these two (and let me tell you, it’s hard to keep up with avid hikers!) I cannot wait for fall. I think I’ll have to begin a workout plan just to keep up with these two and their hiking ability though!!
During their engagement session we really hiked! Out of breath and all it was worth it!! We ventured down to this gloriously stunning beach and we could not have asked for a better day! The sunset God provided us was simply breathtaking and created such amazing warm light….. photographer’s dream!!
John and Kirty, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your love story. I feel so honored that you would entrust me with such an important task and feel so blessed by the opportunity to get to know you and your families a little better. From a thankful heart ~Xiomara
