North Bend Engagement

       This was a very unique engagement shoot, unlike one I had experienced or prepared for. Everything had gone according to plan, except for one small detail...the air was FILLED with wildfire smoke! Despite the worrisome and ominous feeling the sky gave us at first, we got more comfortable a realized we were safe to continue what turned into an amazing shoot!

Starting off at Reinig Bridge in North Bend, WA the sun was just starting to head towards the forest tree line. This is when the smoke started to drift in!

However soon realizing the haziness from the sky turned into a beautiful soft light and cut a lot of the harsh direct sunlight!

At this point the sky turned a glowing RED! We took to the huge grass field with the mountains in the background (that I originally planned to be VERY clearly seen) and played around with all the empty space!

This shoot was so much fun and Shawn + Teresa were up for everything! So despite the unexpected weather conditions the engagement turned into the most unique photo experience! The red sunset and low fog created the most beautiful colors.
