It was a cloudy and misty evening on the Oregon coast at Shorts Sands Beach for this styled Oregon coast elopement. Short Sands Beach is a great beach in between Cannon Beach and Manzanita with an epic drift wood pile and amazing cliffs. You’ll often find many local surfers along the short trail to the beach. Short Sands Creek flows right into the ocean and in the winter you can sometimes see Coho and winter steelhead spawning. It’s the prefect location for an intimate wedding or elopement on the northern Oregon coast. In the winter and spring there is an amazing small waterfall right along the beach on the north western edge.
All film images were captured on my Pentax 645n with Fugi 400 film rated at 200. Digtal images were captured on a Canon 5D Mark iii with the a 45mm tilt shift and 85L lenses.

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.”
