Port Townsend Engagement // Bri and Ray - bethanykiddphotography.com
Port Townsend 

This Port Townsend engagement shoot was one of my top favorite shoots in 2020. I’m serious! I love this couple, Bri and Ray, and their adorable dog, Stella with all my heart! I absolutely can’t wait for their wedding summer 2021. Port Townsend is cozy, maritime town steeped with history, culture, and adventure. This town has it all and there is seriously something for everyone here. Fort Worden is state park nestled on the salt water beach front and that’s where we ran around together for hours shooting! You will need a Discover Pass to shoot here. You can purchase those online and I think they run about $10 for a day pass.

Funny enough, Port Townsend wasn’t actually our first choice location. Hurricane Ridge was our original plan. However, Hurricane Ridge ended up not working out the day of and we quick switched our plans over to Port Townsend. Just a quick note to fellow photogs, its REALLY important to have Plan A, Plan B AND a Plan C. Sometimes things just don’t work out and that’s totally ok! In fact, I’d say this Port Townsend engagement shoot ended up being better than any of us could have imagined.

Bri and Ray

Bri and Ray are two amazing human beings. I love following Bri on IG because she is one of the most uplifting, body positive women I know. She is a huge encourager of women, and I think the world needs a little more of that. I was also super impressed with how well their dog, Stella was during our time together! I’m a huge dog lover so anytime a couple wants to bring their dog I’m all for it. Bri and Ray were so laid back, trusted me with all their hearts and I think their photos are just to die for.

It was so fun to spend a couple hours exploring. We trucked through the sun speckled forest, played across the sandy beach and melted into a warm sunset. And, to top it all off, at the very end of the shoot we stood and watched a pod of whales feed just five feet away from the shore. Bri and Ray, you mean so much to me. I’m beyond grateful we connected and can’t wait to hug you again soon!

I honestly can’t believe I get to meet amazing human beings and explore these beautiful landscapes for a living. I’m so thankful to be doing this as a job. If you’re interested in booking an engagement shoot or wedding planning, I’d love for you to reach out so we can connect. I’d love to help serve you through this process! We will have some grand adventures for sure!!
