I’d say a healthy 90% of my couples always reach out wanting engagement photos on the Oregon coast, and I am happy to oblige them!
The Oregon Coast is an iconic spot for the local or traveler to visit for their engagement pictures. From Pacific City, to Cannon Beach all the way down to the Southern Coast, you really can’t go wrong. Take a drive along the 101 and you will see stunning cliffside views, beautiful tall grass and sandy beaches for miles.
Lexie and Pierre are two of my closest friends in Oregon and they got engaged at the end of 2020 with my help! Our first round of engagement photos ended up being a bit of a wet disaster (it rained AND we were at a waterfall) so we went for round two this summer. Trading in the soaked hair for windswept beach-hair and the rain jackets for comfy summer clothes was a definite plus.
If you are looking to see a throwback, check out these photos I took of Lexie and Pierre back in Arizona, before they were engaged! I love seeing them in some of the same prompts back in that shoot versus today. And the contrast between Arizona and Oregon is an added plus as well!
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 engagement photos on the Oregon Coast! If you are interested in locking me down as your photographer for your own epic session, contact me here!
