If you ever get a chance to visit Western Washington, Deception Pass is a must-see. With a stunning historic bridge stretching over the pass, endless beaches and trails, and the most outstanding views you’ll ever see — Deception Pass makes for an epic location for a photoshoot.
We visited one of the lesser known spots at the park to capture these moments with Josie + Daniel. This tiny rocky island made an ideal backdrop to witness this pair’s connection. We had mini dance parties, drank wine and watched seals pass in the water below. Though it was too cloudy for sunset, the evening was tinted blue, and we zipped our coats tighter as we walked along the rocky shore.
Even months later I come back to these images to remind me of what’s possible — of capturing the true heart and soul of my subjects. Of identifying my style in the intricacies of this connection.
As a photographer and creative, each shoot strengthens my skills and motivation. This couple’s shoot was the first of many that I could say without a doubt that I was proud of. Perhaps it was the perfect conditions, or my familiarity with my subjects, but since this shoot I’ve had so many more that have felt just as right.
