Over time I have slowly discovered one of the best places to stay at Cannon Beach. The Hallmark Hotel is a beautiful spot to vacation with your babe for engagement photos!
The Hallmark Hotel in Cannon Beach has easily become one of the top places my couples stay at for their engagement photos. I met with Vanessa and Brad at their hotel which sat just along Cannon Beach. Their room was facing the iconic Haystack Rock, and when I saw the inside I immediately looked up some availability for myself! HAHA. It is seriously so cool and the perfect spot for a staycation if you’re from Oregon! Their rooms have these GIANT jacuzzi tubs in the same space as your bed that I think are so cool.
Cannon Beach is an extremely well-liked location on the Oregon coast for photos. Hallmark Hotel is perfect for your engagement photos too because you can walk down a set of stairs in the back that goes straight out to the beach! There was no shortage of laughter at our session, and I am absolutely in love with the beautiful PNW weather in these photos!
Things to do at Cannon Beach
- Pelican Brewing in Cannon Beach and Pacific City is an iconic place for food and drinks – you have to go!
- Visit Hug Point, which is a quick 8 minute drive from the Haystack Area. Check out a session I did at Hug Point right here!
- Low tide is going to be best to utilize the entire area when getting married. When it’s high tide you cannot get as close to Haystack Rock as you see in these photos.
- If you’re a huge foodie like me, check out Wayfarer, Zingers ice cream, Crepe Neptune, Grizzly Tuna or Sea Star Gelato!
Without further ado, let’s get into these pictures! If you are interested in locking me down as your photographer for your own epic session, contact me here!
