Stevi Sayler Photography » Eugene, Oregon Wedding and Portrait Photographer

From the moment Katy contacted me, I knew this was going to be an epic, super fun and totally unreal shoot! Katy and Trevor were traveling from California, through Oregon and up into Washington for a fun vacation and a way to celebrate their second wedding anniversary! They knew they wanted to do photos on the Oregon Coast they began searching out Oregon photographers and somehow, thankfully, they found me! Every email with Katy got me more and more excited about the shoot, we were totally on the same page with ideas, locations, outfits, EVERYTHING! They even put up with my goofy stories about my dog and let him tag along, at a distance!  Can you say perfect shoot?!

We met up at Cannon Beach, walked along the beach to Haystack rock and then headed down the coast to Hug Point Beach for the more dramatic part of the shoot! Doing two different outfits and matching them to the surroundings not only gives a ton of variety in photos but it really helps to amp up the drama in the photo!

These two didn’t shy away at any suggestion, not when I asked if they would climb up a giant rock, and not even when I asked if they would wade in the FREEEEEEZZZZINNNGGG cold ocean water! Talk about troopers and the photos turned out even better because of it!

From this point on I will be showing this shoot to future couples as an example of everything perfect. The dress, the location, the willingness to try crazy stuff.

ALLL THE THINGS!

Gosh, I could just go on and on, but I won’t.

BUT if you are considering photo locations, OREGON COAST!!!

Of course I have to include some awesome outtakes. The uncontrollable faces you made when the ocean water hits you, and of course my derpy little puppy.

I rarely photograph anything involving kids, so you know it’s a good one when I make the exception! I’ve known Becky since before she had her oldest, Addy so it has been such a fun experience to see her adorable family grow! Talk about some cute kids!!

Oh, and there was a pony there. If you have a pony at your party, I WILL be there!!

I’ve known Carolyne since high school back in Ashland Oregon and we’ve kept in contact this whole time, taken about a million pictures together, I talked her into second shooting one of my most challenging weddings of all time and we rowed together on a crew team for years! We’ve been through some crazy and fun stuff together so when she told me she was engaged I could barely handle it! And i was even more excited when she asked me to photograph her wedding, what an honor!?! I hadn’t met her new fiance yet, but I knew any guy she liked would be amazing, and of course he is!

For our shoot, we planned one doozy of a weekend! I came up and met them at the Portland Waterfront for sunset followed by Council Crest photos, hanging out, delicious dinner and an early night because we would be up at sunrise for more photos and more adventures! We had our hearts set on cherry blossoms but due to some crazy winds all the blooms on the waterfront were gone, but we found some at the Japanese Garden and down to NW 23rd for coffee at one of the fanciest and prettiest coffeeshops I’ve ever been to, Barista.

Then for more flowers we treked to Owen Rose Garden in Eugene! It was a wild, totally packed shoot and oh so much fun!! I’m thinking I might have to make more of my engagement sessions full on adventures, I loved all the variety and getting to know these two as a couple was just the best!!

A strong guy who can lift his lady, adorable dogs and a cool mossy river?!

I’m in photographer heaven!

I had so much fun with these two and I love that they came with some fun ideas on how to make the shoot all their own! Bringing their pups, their waders and their fishing poles was all their idea and I loved it so much!! As a photographer I’m more than happy to make recommendations on locations, ideas and poses, but I’m so much happier when couples come with their own opinions and ideas! I feel like it makes the shoot so special and much more of a collaboration between all of us! So, if you are planning your engagement session, let’s talk ideas and come up with some awesome locations and activities that are the perfect combination of fun, beautiful and totally you!

Another day, another post about my little baby nieces! Perhaps if I post enough, I will learn to properly spell niece everytime! But anywho, I felt incredibly honored to get to see the twins in the NICU and even more excited to get to be there as they prepared to be discharged and leave the hospital and adventure out into the world for the first time! I cannot wait to share even more pictures!!
