Hug Point Oregon Coast Engagement Photos // KJ + Britney

Whether you’re celebrating an engagement, having an intimate vow renewal or eloping, Hug Point is one of the best places along Cannon Beach to explore Oregon’s beauty.

The nice part about visiting this epic spot on the Oregon coast is you are close to another popular place for beautiful photos, Haystack Rock. Haystack Rock sits along Cannon Beach and is also nearby Pelican Brewery (shoutout, I love them) so you can grab dinner or a drink after your session! Hug Point beach and Haystack/Cannon Beach are like friendly neighbors.

Where do I start with KJ and Britney? These two babes have such good energy and a whole lot of love for each other. Their engagement session at Hug Point was one for the freaking books and I can’t get enough of it. They are adventurous, carefree, loving and full of SO MUCH JOY. If you’re ever having a bad day I highly recommend hanging out with these two because they will lift your spirits in five seconds.

When KJ and Britney reached out to me to shoot their wedding we immediately hit it off. These two wanted somebody they could feel comfortable around especially because (like most couples) they were nervous for pictures. It was also important to them to find a photographer who was an LGBTQ+ ally, that they could trust to tell their love story in a way that was authentic and true to them. As an inclusive wedding photographer, I firmly believe in celebrating all types of love. No matter what body shape or size, color of skin or sexual orientation you deserve to be celebrated to the fullest extent. Every. Damn. Day.

Something completely awesome about this engagement session at Hug Point was we had the beach completely to ourselves in August (hell yes). After we started running around KJ and Britney quickly transformed into models. I was blown away by their pictures and how comfortable they were in front of the camera! There was no shortage of smiles, snuggles or laughter and we partied from sunset all the way through blue hour taking photos.

I can’t wait to reconnect with these two for their wedding and celebrate their love all over again. If you are interested in chatting about your own very special beach engagement session or wedding, let’s get in touch!
