If anyone knows Hannah + Cole, they know just how perfectly in love with each other they are. It's no often that I meet a couple that still can't stop taking pictures of each other, oogling over how cute they are, and enjoy having their photos taken because that means they get to be close to each other. These two are inseparable in the most perfect way. They are what I want to feel inside, and they wear it all on their sleeve. They are open, intentional, accepting, forgiving, who deeply love and aren't afraid of the consequences.
Do you dream of eloping, but know that it means too much to your family + friends not to?
You're not alone.
The elopements that you see all over instagram and the internet where a bride + groom plan an epic trip to some far off land with cliffs and waterfalls have only really been a thing for the last 5 years. That's probably why your parents don't get it.
The thing about eloping that really is so incredible (and what I love so much about them) isn't the killer photos or even the money that you will probably save on catering and an open bar, it's the intimacy.
A rainy day on the Oregon Coast with the sweetest, most adventurous and carefree couple who love and enjoy each other like no other.
A little rain didn't stop these two from having the best day ever.
From the first time I talked to these two, I knew right away that they were the most relaxed, down to earth couple and we would all have so much fun together. They had found this spot on Canon Beach where the tide goes down far enough to access a different, secluded beach, and their dream was to have a little private table setting, in the water, as the sun was going down. It was nothing short of amazing.
Then we spent the rest of the daylight dancing in the waves and I just stood back and captured these two playful souls be together just as they are.
