Anybody that knows me knows that I love doing shoots either at sunrise or sunset, it's my happy place! When it came to this shoot however, we were up against the challenge of one thing - midday direct sunlight. Do you know what I say to that? Bring. it. on!

It was a warm, bright and sunny day and it was time to venture off to our destination location at Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City, Oregon along the Oregon Coast. To be honest, this shoot was sort of intimidating seeing as shooting in direct sunlight can pose some challenges but the end results were out of this world (scroll down to see).

Once we got to Cape Kiwanda, we began shooting and it was so much fun! Chelsea is actually a wedding photographer too, so it was really fun for us to experiment and come up with poses together for her. The sun was blazing this day and incredibly harsh but to say we made it work would be an understatement (we actually killed it)!

The mix of water, sand and rocks at Cape Kiwanda truly made this such a beautiful location to shoot at and I can't wait to go back and create even more magic.

Photos By Gayle does more than just take photos of people. Rather, it is capturing moments of LOVE and HAPPINESS. Singing to the skies, dancing in a field, smiles that hurt because they’re so big. There is nothing else I would rather be doing than photographing these unique details that make you and your significant other a couple.
