Walker and Makayla decided to take their bridal portraits at God’s Thumb on the Oregon Coast. Portraits can feel rushed on wedding days, so this allowed for these two to take their time and really soak in the moment with one another. I will always recommend a bridal portrait session to my couples who crave intimate and un-rushed photos together. Not only do you get to traveling to somewhere beautiful, like the Oregon Coast, but you also get all the bomb photos & memories to look back on, forever! These photos can even serve as your “first look” at each other, in your wedding attire, if you are worried about missing that moment on your big day. A bridal portrait session is also a great way to celebrate your anniversary and get dressed up in your bridal attire again if you’ve already tied the knot!
Makayla looked absolutely stunning in her chic statement-sleeve wedding dress, with the perfect pops of color in her bouquet, and of-course her iconic white cowboy boots— which were such a fun and practical touch for this mountain-side adventure. Her and Walker complimented each other so well with their warm and fun-loving personalities. I absolutely adore capturing couples who radiate so much love & joy for one another! The photos truly embodied Makayla and Walkers love for me-another. The gallery feels so magical and reminds me of all the joyful moments that were shared on the mountainside that day.
Taking bridal portraits at a fun location of your choice allows you to squeeze in some extra time for photos in your wedding attire. If you’re wanting to create the vibes of a destination wedding, but don’t want to full-on commit to one, this adventurous bridal session serves as the perfect compromise. You can celebrate your wedding day with friends and family back home, then hop on a plane to an exotic location for some gorgeous adventure portraits like these. I mean, look at how precious Walker and Makayla looked! These two were such a blast to capture!
