A Moody Cannon Beach Oregon Elopement

Eloping in Oregon

Cannon Beach is one of those places you dream of going to as a photographer - so I was SUPER excited to capture this elopement and experience the beauty of the Oregon Coast!

This couple, Angelica and Jeremiah, have that deep love where you know they were made for each other. They ran away from home at 18, lived a very frugal life moving from place to place, had a beautiful baby boy and worked incredibly hard to be where they are at now. They are so easy going, totally in love and gorgeous together! It was an honor for me to photograph their love.

This day was cloudy, very windy and chilly, but it was worth every second! The wind naturally created a very ethereal, whimsical look to their photos! Pro tip: Wind isn't so scary!

The Oregon Coast, especially this beach town, is perfect for a more intimate elopement. The beach is fairly large with plenty of room to get photos without a lot of people in the background. We never felt crowded and couldn't go wrong with any angles since this beach is so stunning all around. Overall, this is an amazing elopement destination.

Tips to Elope in Cannon Beach

  • Take weather into account! Depending on which months you travel, your attire will vary! Summer (May, June and July) are going to be the better months. Temperatures will reach the mid-70s which is perfect weather (in my opinion!) This elopement took place in August, and it was very windy and COLD! It was perfect for a more moody vibe for their photos, Definitely keep that into account when planning your elopement. Weather and cloud coverage influences your photos!

  • Wear shoes that won't sink into the sand (aka, not small heels!) Block heels, boots or flats are going to be your best bet here!

  • Get a Beach Permit!

  • Use this resource made by the Cannon Beach Chamber of Commerce to organize your planning

  • Book great vendors!! I would LOVE to be your photographer! Angelica was also wearing a gorgeous dress from Ania Bridal, an amazing bridal shop in Portland, Oregon. The florals for this wedding were designed and created by the talented Flowers by Almanac. All vendors will add something unique and beautiful to the vision!
