The Oregon Coastline has my heart and so it is no wonder that this beach couples photo session speaks right to my soul.
With Oregon’s jagged coastline, that hugs along about 360 miles of the wild Pacific ocean, these rugged beaches are seriously some of the most beautiful in all the world. And really, it doesn’t just stop in Oregon, because the coastline into our Northern sister state of Washington is equally as breathtaking and incredible. Tide pools, dark rock formations, foggy sand covered shores, deep forests with hiking trails galore, and the most incredible sunsets cover this dramatic and moody coastal wonderland with swoon worthy photo ops.
This particular photo session took place at Hug Point, which is one of my frequent photo stops. Located just off of the Highway 101 about 4 miles south of Cannon Beach, this little state recreational area is an incredible option for easy to reach dramatic backdrops. Just make sure you get there at low tide, as it is impossible and extremely dangerous to reach some of the iconic caves and waterfall when the tide is high.
We happened to arrive when the tide wasn’t completely out so we stuck to the little rocky area of the beach just off the trail. No matter what area you photograph for your couples photo session this Oregon beach is just breathtaking. It was also a chilly, November evening which added to the moodiness and drama of these shots. These two lovebirds were troopers, considering it was super cold out that day! Lots of hugging and cuddling to keep her warm added all the warm fuzzies to these images.
The incredible dress was designed by the fabulous, Claire LaFaye, an alternative and edgy wedding wear designer based out of Portland, Oregon. I’ve worked with Claire’s creations a lot during different wedding and engagement shoots and her beautiful dresses never disappoint. If you’re looking for something totally unique and beautiful to wear for your wedding or engagement session, she’s your girl.
It’s safe to say that I will never tire of exploring the Oregon Coast and it’s incredible beaches. Beach couples sessions will always excite me and I look forward to planning my next one.
