Comin at ya this Wednesday with this beautiful Cannon Beach Oregon couple! This was my first time ever out to Oregon coast and dang, it DID NOT disappoint! I can see why everyone finds this place so magical!
I had always wondered, honestly, what people saw in this beach and the west coast. Not to say that I don’t think it’s gorgeous, because I do! It’s absolutely INSANE! But there are so many places in the world, and I’m also still finding beauty in where I live. But I digress. Cannon Beach is a place that holds its own in the world, and it has every right to!
If you haven’t figured it out yet, I’m from Michigan. The light, the scenery, everything here is different than on the west coast. Watching the sun set over the Pacific Ocean, it hit way different than any other sunset I’ve seen. The weather and temperature weren’t that different in Oregon than they were in Michigan. So I expected similar vibes to what you would find on Lake Michigan. But let’s be real, there’s no comparison!
Photographing Dez and April was absolutely perfect. You can tell these two enjoy being together and just having fun. It was fun to watch them running around on the beach soaking everything in.
So here’s a little reminder for you today. If there’s somewhere you want to go, somewhere you’ve always dreamed of, let’s go! Don’t ever think that your dreams are too big. If you want to have a sweet, fun, chill night on Cannon Beach, then let’s do it. If you want to head up into the mountains and enjoy an intimate moment together while watching the sun set, I’m all about it. If you decide you want to stay a little closer to home and go somewhere that holds special meaning to you and your relationship…I’m game!
My desire to to always capture who YOU are as a couple. We can copy what we see on Pinterest all day long, but what does that accomplish? Do the photos look like you just because it’s you? Maybe. But let’s be real, no one ever looked like themselves while trying to copy someone else.
So let’s not copy. Let’s go somewhere gorgeous, and just chill, and have the best time. Because in the end, those memories are what make those photos YOU. And you…you’re pretty stinkin great.
