Niralee + Andy // Oregon Coast Engagement Session

October 27, 2021

Niralee + Andy reached out to me a few months back with a dream of shooting their engagement photos on a cliff overlooking the ocean. They shared with me how they have always felt their relationship was deeply spiritual and that they had loved each other in another lifetime and wanted to capture that emotion in their session.

So I met them in Portland and we drove to the Oregon coast and spent a couple of days together exploring the foggy coastline, walking along the beach looking for starfish, and taking in the beautiful views at Cape Kiwanda. And during their session we meditated, soaked in the raw beauty of the nature around us, and they even jumped in the freezing ocean at the end all on their own.

It’s also been a dream of mine to photograph Indian customs and a desi bride, and I was seriously over the moon getting to capture Niralee in her saree all done up! Indian culture is just mind-blowing to me and I’m so honored I got to experience a little piece of it 🙂

I had the idea to incorporate some love letters of theirs in the photos and I think it helps take their story to a deeper level. I hope you love these just as much as I do!
