I'm a wedding and portrait photographer living in Vancouver, BC with my husband Randy.  I photographed my first wedding when I was only 17 years old - and I've photographed over 200 weddings since! I am an avid bookworm, lover of green tea, pretty nail polish & my Labradoodle Harley. Thanks for visiting!

A Weekend in Cannon Beach

June 24, 2014

personal

Something Randy and I were most looking forward about being married was being able to go away for a weekend together. While we were engaged, we were hanging out with our friends Kelsey and Jon and the Oregon Coast came up. We decided to plan for a little trip in June. We picked a weekend and that was that. Back to wedding planning I went. It has been almost three months since Randy and I have been married (One year for Kelsey and Jon next month!) and it was so fun to spend a weekend away with friends.

Friday morning we were out the door around 7:15am and headed south. The drive was no problem on the way down, just over six hours. Not  including a stop in Astoria to eat at Fort George Brewery & Public House (highly recommend it!) and a stop in Seaside at Safeway to grab groceries for the next two days. Our time in Cannon Beach was much too short (it’s a really lofty goal to drive 6-8 hours on only a 3-day weekend) but we made due with the time we did have. Next time we would absolutely go for more like 5 days. Not 3.

Weekend highlights included waking up to my husband every morning (he leaves at 5am so… this is a rare occurrence), staying in bed until 10:30am the first day (!!) and 9am the second, hot-tubbing both nights, playing four games of Rook, cooking together at the cabin, taking photos on the beach at sunset. Most of all, just spending time with Randy. I miss him when he goes to work/I go to work. Is that silly? I don’t think it is. Dreaming about the day where we both can work side-by-side in the same field.

If you are in need of coffee recommendations, definitely check out the Sleepy Monk (pictured in this blog post) and Insomnia Coffee (instagrammed here.) I loved my decaf almond milk lattes at both places.

Thankful for the life we live.

Thanks to Kelsey’s husband Jon for these next two photos.

    oh my goodness – I am actually in love! I mentioned on your IG that I’ve always wanted to go to Cannon beach, now it’s officially on the MUST GO list. :)
