Cannon Beach Wedding Inspiration

The West Coast will always have a piece of my heart which is why the Katie Nicolle Workshop hosted on the Oregon coast drew me in. I had long dreamed about wandering down Cannon Beach taking in its immensity; immersed in the sounds and sights only offered by the ocean and it did not disappoint. This workshop allowed me to explore the world of film which reignited my passion for photography. Shot primarily with Fuji400h the colours, textures and mood of this workshop were romantic, whimsical and dreamy beyond belief.

Tyson and Sydney are newlyweds which was evident through their embraces and natural chemistry. The beach offered a neutral background that allowed the blush Leanne Marshall gown to take centre as it was gently caressed by the wind and moved with Sydney every step. Cannon Beach’s signature enormous rocks offered protection from the wind and a textural backdrop to the gorgeous tablescape designed by Stacey Foley Design. The soft pink and peach palette was beautifully captured in the unkempt, wild, floral design by Foraged Floral. Organic elements including sea shells in the flat lay and place settings kept a cohesive feeling of an intimate beach wedding.

Workshops are such a wonderful opportunity to learn, try new things and step outside of your comfort zone. You can make mistakes and grow from them especially in an environment full of support. I’m so thankful for the new friendships formed and the wealth of information provided by Katie. Most of all I’m thankful for the confidence that I walked away with once it was time to return home.
