abby + ben


In the midst of their wedding planning, Abby and Ben decided that the formalities and big event simply weren't for them. Instead, they wanted to celebrate each other with their friends and family in a spot that has always been close to their hearts-- the Oregon coastline. 

Going on the advice of some surfers, Abby and Ben found the perfect alcove near Cannon Beach that perfectly snuggled their guests, all seated on beach towels and huddled close together. The incredible setting instantly made everyone feel at ease. There is something so special about being surrounded by majesty and having the earth nestled right underneath your feet, and this place couldn't have suited Abby and Ben's union any better. These two just fit together. Spending time with them individually before their first look was great, but being in the presence of them as a couple just felt right. Ben opened up immediately, and Abby never stopped smiling.

Throughout the day, Abby, Ben, and those closest to them became even closer, and I am so grateful that I was able to spend the day surrounded by such positive energy and beautiful people. 

The day was truly one to remember. Thank you, Abby and Ben, for being so wonderful from day one and for inspiring me and my art. Wishing you and your families all the best!
