I've known these two for a long time but hadn't seen either of them since early college. Heard they were engaged through facebook, and then randomly ran into them at a bar a few months ago when they moved to Portland from St. Louis. To be asked to shoot their engagement session was an absolute privilege and a joy. They are so sweet and so comfortable with each other - photographing that kind of love is so much fun.
Shaun and Jessica had two concepts for their engagement session: on the one hand, an urban "Portland-y" vibe; on the other, a nod to their Mardi Gras-masquerade-themed wedding. We met up early to catch the early morning sunshine - worth it. Oh, and no big deal, Jessica had strawberries, bagels & cream cheese, and orange juice waiting when I arrived (yum).
I'm so happy for both of you - and so happy you live in Portland now!
