Bend, Oregon Engagement Session For Greg and Karen at McMenamins Old St. Francis

Karen and Greg are a true testimonial to online dating!  It all started on when Karen and Greg posted their profiles with purposefully casual pictures.  Karen said she wanted to meet someone who was drawn to her personality.  Greg is a laid back, quiet man that was drawn to Karen’s outgoing nature, so they make perfect companions!  It was such a pleasure to hang out with the both of them for their engagement shoot, taken at the location of their first date, McMenamins Old St. Francis in Bend, Oregon.  To kick off the session and gab about their upcoming beach wedding in beautiful Captiva Island in Florida, we all ordered a round of drinks to celebrate and spend some time with this fun couple.  Since it was all prearranged by a good friend of Karen’s and event coordinator, Cindy Tintle (Lay It Out Events), it was the first time we were able to meet face-to-face.

They were both great sports since a wedding was going on a the same time as their shoot!  We got to explore some new areas in a familiar location and had some fun near the cigar bar and pool table 🙂  Karen and Greg, thanks so much for the opportunity to work with you both, you are the epitome of a relaxed, sophisticated couple.  We are so excited to travel to Florida, spend time with your kids, family, and friends and capture your sunset wedding here in about a month!  Cheers and congratulations to you both…

They look so relaxed 🙂

Okay, this is one of our favs – love your hat and glasses Karen!

I can’t get out of my head that you’re about ready to enter a snazzy Jazz bar.

Okay, so I never really noticed this hot Juke box until now!

A great headshot, Greg!  And we got a smile outta you after all 🙂
