This Deception Pass engagement session is a perfect PNW-vibe location with its rocky beaches, driftwood, and dark green trees off in the distance. Our trip out to Deception Pass for Ashely + Jacob’s engagement session was actually my time going there since I’ve lived in Washington! I couldn’t have asked for a more sweet couple to share that experience with 🙂
Our First Coffee Date
When I first met Ashley for coffee, I feel like we really hit it off and became quick friends. As I listened to her talk about Jacob, his surprise beach proposal, and learned more about the both of them, it was pretty obvious to see how much Ashley loves and cares for Jacob. As a wedding photographer, I love documenting that kind of love that you can see in the way someone talks. As a person, I adore being around people as happy and funny as Ashley. Meeting up and getting to know Ashley even more before her engagement session really showed me how sweet and thoughtful she is. At this point, I’m also dying to meet Jacob whom I’ve heard so many good things about!
Deception Pass Engagement Session
Despite a rainy car ride to Deception Pass, we were blessed with a sunny beach day! Seriously, I don’t know how I get so lucky at my sessions with no rain at all in the PNW. We did have some dark skies for the first half of the session, but no complaints here 🙂
Now friends, you are going to gasp when you see how perfect Ashley + Jacob looked for their engagement photos! Ashley got her hair and makeup professionally done by my favorite HMUA and looked FLAWLESS. They coordinated their outfits so well despite it being their first time dressing up for photos.
On top of all of that, they were naturals in front of our cameras! I could hardly tell that they had any nerves at all for their first time getting professional photos done. One of the most adorable parts about capturing Ashely + Jacob’s relationship was witnessing was how easily they made each other laugh. I still can’t get over the way Jacob smiles at Ashley or Ashley’s adorable giggle!
My Favorites From Ashley + Jacob’s Engagement Session
I have some of my favorite photos from this Deception Pass engagement session below… You won’t want to miss the stellar golden light and sunset we had at the bottom of this post! The next time you’ll see these two lovebirds will be at their June 2020 wedding at Maplehurst Farm!
