This Hug Point + Cannon Beach Engagement got me published in Forbes Magazine! So stoked about that. I’ve linked the article so you can read about Lara and Matt’s cross country covid trip. Lara contacted me at the end of their trip wanting engagement photos to capture the end of their westward journey and the beginning of their journey back east to their home in New York City. I was so excited to be able to show them the coast here in Oregon which is by far the prettiest in the west coast(facts).

She wanted to do Cannon Beach but since Cannon is always crowded and even more so with covid we went to Hug Point which is another local favorite and less crowded, but I will tell you I photoshopped out many people in the background. Not nearly as empty as the photos look but it was still very pleasant.

Sea Stacks and Sunsets

During this Hug Point + Cannon Beach engagement we walked past the waterfall at Hug(Yes there’s a waterfall on the beach!). At the end there’s a nice sea cave that’s covered at high tide and some beautiful rocks we walked out on. I love the warm glow of the ocean air out here with the sea spray at sunset. Makes every photo warm and cozy like a big hazy hug from the sun. Because Lara wanted Cannon too I knew we had to get back and at least get the last few minutes of light at Cannon, and that’s what we did.

We raced back up the highway to Cannon and found a spot close enough to the rocks before the light faded and captured some end of golden hour beach walking before blue hour set in. Again, I was so stoked to be able to show them the coast AND have my photo published in Forbes with their article.

If you’re wanting to elope or have an engagement on the coast please get in touch. I know all of the great spots and I’m happy to share the beauty of Oregon with you.
