Adventure Engagement Photos | Samantha & Adam on the Oregon Coast

adventure engagement session

Oh, Oregon. I can’t believe it’s been just over a week since this dream of an adventure engagement session on the Oregon coast with Samantha and Adam! We fell 100%, completely head over heels in love with the Oregon coast during a brief visit several years ago, and ever since, I’ve been dreaming of photographing a session at Cannon Beach. When Samantha and Adam contacted us about their wedding at CJ’s off the Square for next spring, I was so excited to hear that they currently live in Portland. Then we got to talk with them and found out how amazing they are, and we were ridiculously excited when they agreed to roadtrip to the coast with us for this epic adventure session! It was seriously a dream come true. Couples who love adventure are the best! These two are just so easy going and have so much fun together. They met at a brewery in Colorado (mountains, good beer, and good food–best!), and have lived all over the country, as well as spending some time long distance, and are currently in Oregon for Adam’s job with an outdoor brand. For their session we started with a hike through Oswald West State Park, explored Ecola State Park, then ended on Cannon Beach, which totally delivered with moody clouds and misty weather!

These are some of our favorites from our time exploring with them! (I’ll be here pretending to still be in this amazing 60 degree weather, instead of Nashville where the heat index is over 100 degrees this weekend ๐Ÿ˜‰ ):

Sam and Adam-Thanks for adventuring with us! You two are awesome, and we are so thankful for our time together and all the wonderful conversations we had! We cannot wait to celebrate with you in the spring (and hopefully see you in August!). And I’m forever grateful for the Pine State Biscuits recommendation ๐Ÿ˜‰
