The Oregon Coast is another popular spot for wedding photos! Whether you live here or are visiting the Pacific Northwest, Cannon Beach is a favorite spot of mine. It’s not a very far trip from the city, which is why it made the cut for Portland Wedding photo locations! Trust me, only driving 1-1.5 hours to get to the coastline is pretty darn exciting!

I’m finishing this list with one of the easiest and most obvious location spots: the city! Portland has such a beautiful city for photos, but my personal favorite is the Pearl District. Rooftop views in this area show off all the gorgeous high rise buildings and mountains in the distance! Not to mention, Portland has some of the best bars and restaurants that would be fun to stop into during your photo session. My favorite bar in Portland is The Pink Rabbit, which is super photogenic with amazing staff and owners!
