jestine // rialto beach, washington portrait session

Last summer I had a wedding in Port Angeles, so I decided to take the long route from Yakima. Along the way there were a few stops I knew I wanted to make, one of which was Rialto Beach. When I first moved to the PNW, Julia Manchik was one of the first photographers I began following, and I saw some photos she had posted of Rialto Beach. Instantly, I was captivated, and knew one day I would have to see it myself.  I'm so thankful I had the opportunity to finally do so,  and also for Jestine who came along to model for me. She did an amazing job, and there's no doubt that she is talented and beautiful. Her dad also came along to do some surfing while we took photos. I found it interesting to watch him-he seemed at peace and at home amid the waves.

Also, I'm pretty convinced Rialto Beach (or Ruby Beach) would be an amazing place for an elopement, just sayin'.
