Sam & Derek were set up by their friends Shaye and Abe and met at a softball tournament! Sam instantly fell in love with Derek’s constant grin! And Derek’s first words to Abe when he saw Sam were, “Nice!”

 

Derek proposed on a beach in Oregon called Hug Point. Sam loves being by the ocean and hunting for treasures in the sand. That weekend, they went out as usual, but instead of finding shells, Derek surprised Sam with a ring!

 

I am so excited to share these moments with you of Sam & Derek’s wedding! It was a cool month this past September, but the smiles on these two sure kept us warm!! Everything was so beautiful and went perfectly!

 

Thank you Sam & Derek for letting me be a special part of your big day! I hope these photographs always bring you back to the moments of your wedding and remind you of the love you felt then and now!
