Pacific City Engagement

I heard at church that our local school was in need of a cheer coach, having a little bit of experience I offered to help and interviewed for the job. For a full summer I worked with 10 hard working girls. We ran, did stair climbs, built up strength all while working towards a big goal; going to a local college for a weeklong cheer camp. Each squad member raised enough money to attend and this proved to be a huge team builder for them all. Fast forward two months into the season and Josh and I took Naomi, who was 5 at the time, to an opthalmologist check up, what we thought would be just a normal follow up to rule out any major issues turned her little world upside down as she was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. This meant multiple trips weekly into OHSU for the first months as specialists ruled out complications of the disorder. These trips left little time to coach and so I stepped down and left the squad in capable hands.

Now seven years later one of my girls contacted me because she was engaged. After an hour on the phone catching up we set up a time to meet and begin planning an epic engagement session for her and her high school sweetheart.  {don’t you just love young love}.  After our meet up I just couldn’t help but feel ooooold!

Fast forward to Andrew and Natasha’s dream shoot: an hour incline hike to this epic view of Pacific City, the very same spot Andrew got down on one knee as he asked Natasha if she would allow him to love her for all time. The photos and memories we captured were sooooo worth the inclined hike and the fact that I could hardly walk up the stairs for two days straight. I am so delighted to get to work with both Natasha and Andrew as they plan their 2017 wedding!! Until then I leave you with a few of my favorites from their Pacific City Engagement Session.

We took some time to photograph as we hiked. Or at least that was my excuse to catch my breath, don’t tell Natasha. ;)Imago Dei Photography, Pacific City and Cannon Beach Wedding Photographer, engagement session in Pacific City Oregon, Oregon Coast Engagement pictures, Haystack Rock Engagement Pictures_0005Imago Dei Photography, Pacific City and Cannon Beach Wedding Photographer, engagement session in Pacific City Oregon, Oregon Coast Engagement pictures, Haystack Rock Engagement Pictures_0006Imago Dei Photography, Pacific City and Cannon Beach Wedding Photographer, engagement session in Pacific City Oregon, Oregon Coast Engagement pictures, Haystack Rock Engagement Pictures_0004
