Playful LGBTQ Engagement Session at Hug Point Beach, Oregon

Nicole & Oodie

I met Nicole and Oodie on the Oregon Coast the week before their wedding. They danced, laughed, hugged, and played resulting in whimsical images that capture their beautiful, authentic selves.

Nicole is a wedding blogger and the editor for Junebug Weddings in Austin, TX. If you’ve been planning for your special day, you’ve probably read some of her work. If you haven’t, I would highly recommend popping over to the Junebug Weddings blog to check it out. There is so much inspirational reading + imagery there. I love their focus on inspiring couples to create a wedding celebration true to their love, whether it’s traditional, far from it, or somewhere in between.

Oodie is a sustainability-focused certified barista + advocate for women, POC, and LGBTQ+ people in the coffee industry, a.k.a. a total badass. You can read more about Oodie’s story here.

I’m in love with how these turned out. Maybe they’ll even inspire you to have a playful, sunset-backed beach photo session. Message me and I’d love to make that happen. ♥
