Dusk Elopement at Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, Oregon

As I set up my gear against the breathtaking backdrop of Haystack Rock, the realization hit me like a wave – dreams do come true and God answers prayer and sometimes grants the desires of our hearts.

Let me spill the tea on a recent adventure that felt like stepping into a fairytale – capturing a dusk elopement at the iconic Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach, Oregon. This spot has been on my photography bucket list since day one, and little did I know that God had a plan to take me there sooner than I imagined.

As I set up my gear against the breathtaking backdrop of Haystack Rock, the realization hit me like a wave – dreams do come true and God answers prayer and sometimes grants the desires of our hearts. The sun dipped low on the horizon, casting a warm, golden glow over everything. Waves crashed against the rocks, creating a symphony of nature’s soundtrack, and birds soared gracefully around the towering monolith. It was a surreal experience, and I couldn’t believe I was lucky enough to witness such a breathtaking sight while doing what I love.

The crashing waves seemed to echo the promises made, creating an intimate soundtrack to their love story. It’s moments like these that remind me why I picked up a camera in the first place – to capture the magic in unexpected places and turn dreams into memories.

So, here’s to chasing dreams, to witnessing love against the backdrop of nature’s wonders, and to the humbling realization that sometimes, the best surprises come when you least expect them. Haystack Rock, you were a dream, and now you’re a cherished chapter in my journey.
