Cannon Beach and Hug Point Oregon Elopement


I have to say, that this was one of the more fun and exciting elopements I have been a part of. I have been so excited to share Kate and James Cannon Beach elopement story for awhile. It was an evening filled with games, adventure, a bon fire, and an epic sunset that left us with amazing colors to capture their special elopement. We talked before and decided on doing multiple spots for their elopement so they could really take in the Oregon Coast. My wife and I went out and scouted some spots at Cannon Beach earlier in the day so we had an idea of where we wanted to take them for photos. One of my favorite parts of elopements is finding cool, unique locations that leave you with infinite choices for photos! We started off at Haystack Rock to pop some celebration champagne and dance around the water while we waited for the sun to set before heading off to Hug Point. We walked along the beach for a little over an hour taking in the beautiful light that was casting shadows around Haystack Rock.

Next we moved up the coast to a more secluded location along Cannon Beach at Hug Point for a little more variety and intimacy! We had a lot of choices for fun photos at this location, whether you want to play in the ocean, run around the beach or make a bonfire. It was the perfect place to cap off their elopement!

We had talked earlier about fun activities to do during their elopement and I asked them what they liked to do in their free time together. They mentioned they played disc golf during their breaks on their road trips….and lo and behold, they had their frisbee in the car! It was the elopement Gods shining down on us and telling them to get back to their roots and have some sandy fun on the beach!

By that point, they were covered in sand and the floodgates for adventure were open. They opened up and decided there were no rules for what they could or couldn’t do on their big day! These two were not afraid to get dirty for some epic photos. Nothing was off limits for them! Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself!

We may have started on the beach, but we inevitably felt pulled toward the beautiful, rocky cliffs that line Cannon Beach and much of Oregon’s coast for some adventure!

We were coming to end of their Cannon Beach elopement with each of them being completely soaked from their water adventures…and the only way to cap off such an epic experience is with a bonfire, naturally!

This was such a fun and special evening and I was so incredible grateful to capture their adventure on the Oregon Coast. It’s always so fun when couples let it rip and let their wild side take over. These two really took in every moment of their sunset elopement!
