Bronwyn and Derek are New Yorkers through and through, but are getting married at the Lions Club out on Peaks Island next year. They made the trip up to chilly Portland to work on wedding details last weekend. Having never met in person, their laid-back engagement shoot was a perfect time to learn more about them, and their sweet pup, Bear!
These two are so relaxed (favorite Portland restaurant, J’s Oyster!), and were completely unfazed by the fact that is was freezing cold and windy, they’re also both so at ease in front of the camera that they made my job very easy. Derek works in the television industry, and they both come from a long line of photographers and filmmakers, so being followed around town by photographer snapping away was no big deal to them. Lots of couples find the whole engagement session idea pretty weird and nerve-wracking, not these two! The only issue we had was that Bear was far too preoccupied with his new stuffed lobster toy from Fetch to look at the camera.
Their wedding is going to be a super-chill summer party and I’m really looking forward to it!
