EVERLY ARDENT Timeless Destination Wedding Photography

Ruby Beach Engagement | Bethany & Austin

Austin is steadfast, Bethany is a dreamer. Together these two have a contagious joy that cannot be contained. Their engagement session in Olympic National Park, Ruby Beach, Washington was so stinkin’ dreamy. The golden light and the ocean breeze made for the most stunning images.

A couple who lives life to the fullest

Bethany & Austin are the type of couple who never miss an opportunity to throw the biggest party. Whether it’s heading into the city for a friend’s 30th birthday bash, or trying the top ten best burgers in Seattle, they believe in celebrating every moment no matter how small. They love backstreet boys and will be the first ones on the dance floor. (Even if their moves are totally cheesy!) And that’s what we love about them. Their love for each other and their friends is inspiring. They ask deep questions and dig into doing life alongside those they love, no matter the task at hand. They’re always there in times of need and I can’t think of a more beautiful example of an Everly Ardent couple than that.

The dreamiest engagement session on Ruby Beach

When we met Bethany and Austin, we instantly knew we were going to become friends, and their engagement session was a dream come true. Did I mention how stinkin’ beautiful they looked in front of the camera? Two beautiful souls, gorgeous evening light, and the perfect setting. We were in heaven. As the sun set over the pacific ocean, we walked, barefoot, along the coastline soaking in every sensation. We took it slow – as we reveled in every emotion. The gentle, salty breeze is something I will remember for the rest of my life. Needless to say, we walked away from this session changed forever. Austin and Bethany are a couple beyond compare, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to call them friends.
