arielle + dustin - an elopement on the oregon coast // portland wedding photographer // cannon beach elopement photographer //

In August, two people from Louisiana flew all the way to the Pacific Northwest to elope in the setting they had always dreamed of. They had never been there, but with adventurous hearts they set out to begin their story in a new place together.

It was a typical day on the Oregon coast at Cannon Beach, with rain slowly drenching us and the wind whipping our hair about. But these two...well, they aren't your typical couple. They had come here for an adventure, seeking something different and wild. The fact that the weather wasn't perfect only added to the sentiment of them setting out on an adventure together as a married couple. Together we ran through forests, across beaches, and all the while not caring one bit if our feet (or Arielle's dress) got muddy and that our clothes were soaked. Seriously, the best.

I am so in awe of love like this. Raw, honest, real.
