Sunrise Cannon Beach Elopement Photographer
Oh, does this elopement make my heart skip a few beats. Amanda and Brett found me on Instagram when they needed some help dreaming up their perfect elopement.
We connected about how they wished to elope with just the two of them. They wanted a romantic and whimsical place to celebrate their love. When I shared my heart with them that Cannon Beach is my favorite place in the world, we knew it was a perfect match.
Amanda did her own hair and makeup for her wedding day. She wore this stunning lace Adelaide dress by Willowby from the local Seattle a&bé bridal shop. Her earrings were purchased from an Etsy shop, Reese Hayden Studio and her unbelievably beautiful crown style ring came from the Etsy shop, FYM jewelry design. Her boho bridal bouquet came from a local Cannon Beach Florist, Debbie.
I love when couples choose to shop small for their wedding day, and find unique pieces that speak to them.
Do you need an elopement photographer for your own Cannon Beach wedding?
We chose a beach along the coast that would give us lots of texture. They wanted to choose their ceremony spot in the moment. A true sense of adventure, don’t you think? We arrived just before sunrise so the coast would be quiet and secluded. They wanted their space to read their vows to one another without any distractions outside of the sound of the ocean.
Carolyn of Oregon Beach Ceremonies, Amanda and Brett’s local officiant, lead a beautiful ceremony for them. My husband, Nathan, was my second shooter and we were the sole witnesses to sign their marriage certificate.
I’m grateful that my job allows me to document love stories in places where my heart is set on fire.
It was a gorgeous, foggy morning with little to no wind. When the sun rose and made its way through the clouds, the rays of light danced along the coast as if in celebration of their love and their joy.
