Andrea + Chuck are the crazy-amazing visionary types.
They grew up in Wisconsin, but moved to Portland to start BrewCycle — AKA the brewpub-crawl-by-bicycling phenomenon. AKA these guys work harder than anyone we know. AKA they also know what it’s like to be in love / try to have a healthy romantic relationship together while also running their own business together. We’ll be the first to raise our hands + admit that is a balance that isn’t always easy. But they’re killing it. They’re wonders.
We first Skyped with Andrea + Chuck when we were in LA + they were in Portland, all the while we talked about their wedding details for Wisconsin. (I have a ‘connect the dots’ picture of a map of America in my head right now.) Then, the next thing you know, the four of us are talking about how fun it would be to do their engagement photos in their current home — Oregon — and tossing around whether or not we could squeeze flights in anytime in the coming months.
Skip the boring details, and BAM. Here come the results!
We recently spent a magical day in PDX with these two (three if you count Crosby!) with the 2 hour trip to the coast, the shoot on Cannon Beach (Goonies fans say ‘HAYYYY’!) on the most incredibly eerie-romantic day of haze, the 2 hour trip back to Portland, and then a night of delicious food + choice beverages! When all was said + done, we ended the day bidding farewell to new friends, and that is something we feel pretty darn stoked about.
Enjoy a few faves from the day with these guys … and, enjoy your weekend, folks! (We’re in NYC shooting this week with a wedding at the Riverside Church here tomorrow, so we know we will!) We’ll be back next week with s’more piccies for allay’all… xo!
