Coupeville beach road: This is a really cool road down by the beach in Coupeville. The lighter tones and browns in this location are a better backdrop if you're wanting to dress moodier (black), or a very casual look with light wash jeans and even pops of off-white would be great. The hair pin turn in the road offers a unique look and also a casual vibe. This would be great for couples that are down for anything and super chill! Sunrise works best because of where the sunrises. Otherwise I would do a cloudy, even light drizzly day for this location! 

North Beach Deception Pass: A sweet little stretch of beach down in the Deception Pass park. Maybe a 5-10 minute hike from the parking lot, pretty easy! This is a very PNW rich setting. Honestly, it works best on a cloudy day if you want 360 views of the scenery including the bridge. If it is a sunny day at sunset, I can only shoot toward the sunset opposite of the bridge view. Keep this in mind. Carmels, off whites, plaid, beanies, coats, layers, casual PNW outdoorsy look pairs really well here! Avoid black, you will not pop in front of the scenery! Couples and families can have fun with their layers and fit right into this location. 

Light house Point, Bowman Bay: A very Pnw rich location on the other side of Deception pass park, nestled between the bridge and Rosario. Jutting rocks, a cove, and cliff edge views similar to Rosario, make for great variety. The catch is, a 20-30 minute hike in depending on how we take it. The hike also includes uphill hiking. I wouldn't recommend this for maternity or if you think your children could not handle it. A cloudy day is perfect for 360 views here. If it is a sunset, we would need to wait till blue hour to catch great views of the bridge backdrop. Sunrise or sunset would do for this location, just need extra time for the hike, and possibly flashlights as it could grow dark on the way back! Let's do it if you're up for an adventure! PNW type clothing, or go romantical with the look! Dreamy would be a good pair! Earthy tones, pops of off-white! In the winter it is very green, the summer is much more brown but still beautiful.

Beachy grass- A 5 minute walk past cranberry lake in the Deception Pass park, you will find a perfect location nestled between the sea and the lake. Beach grass and sand. A neutral pallet. Perfect for sunsets or cloudy day. This location is ideal for families. There is space for the kiddos to run around here and feel free! Also great for couples and seniors. The beachy look of the grass and sand is fun for many types of looks. Because of the neutral palette that this location offers, you can play around with your colors when styling! Or keep it neutral yourself! Dress it up or go casual, even beach casual. This is one of my favorite spots. There are enough trees here to filter the light, giving myself a lot more freedom of shooting during the session!
