Not only is the scenery of this shoot incredibly breath taking, but the couple themselves are beautiful, as is their love story! We’re sharing all of their Oregon coast engagement session here on our wedding blog today – and boy, is it magnificent! Their photographer, Amanda K Photography, captured their adventurous spirit perfectly. Can’t get enough? Take a peek at another of our favorite scenic engagements!
From Amanda, Lauren and Mike traveled all the way from Cincinnati for their Pacific Northwest Engagement session, which is fitting because they run a travel instagram account called An Inspired Collective aimed to “inspire discovery and build community.”
Here is their sweet proposal story, “I was coming home from a 2 1/2 week road trip when I got a message from Mike. On the outskirts of Denver, I was hoping to make it to St. Louis by the end of the day. Let’s just say, after talking to Mike, I drove 18 hours straight to meet this guy! For our first date, he picked me up in a white Jeep Wrangler and cowboy boots and took me to hang out with rescue wolves for the afternoon. The instant connection between us was magnetic. I truly felt like God finally sent me than man I had been dreaming of for years.
He proposed a year later by making a coffee mug that said “Will you marry me?”. It was a normal Sunday and coffee morning as I finished my coffee to find these four amazing words at the bottom of my cup! I said yes!”
