In this blog post we meet our lovely engaged couple, Amanda and Kevin. This is their engagement session.

By day Amanda works two jobs while Kevin is a full time college student, but in their spare time the two enjoy geocaching, road trips, and awesome geeky stuff like watching sci-fi tv shows and movies.

While Kevin has been really busy with all of his classes, Amanda has been planning the wedding. Starting with this beautiful venue, Gentle House in Monmouth Oregon.  Part of the Western Oregon University campus, this home has been beautifully restored inside and out. It’s beautiful! While we were shooting this set of pictures we were serenaded by the farm animals next door 🙂

Planning this engagement photo shoot, I wanted to show off more of who Amanda and Kevin are. That’s when I got the idea to bring comic books to the shoot. We headed to the adorable near by town of Independence Oregon.  We met back up at Riverview Park and I handed them a couple of my son’s comic books…and that’s when the fun happened! Kevin started reading to us from the book. Big deal right? Well when taken out of context, comic books are actually pretty funny. We laughed a lot!
