A Pre Wedding Shoot at Cannon Beach and Sentinel Hotel
Sunny Day, Purple Flowers, and Elegant Palace. Those were the three dream components that William and Tran wanted for their pre-wedding shoot. They dreamed up a portrait session of bright sunny beaches, guitar serenades, fun dates, purple flowers, and romantic evening palaces. Amazingly enough, we got them all. We drove away from rainy Portland, exited the forest, and found a sunny Cannon Beach waiting for us! Along the drive back, we stopped at field covered with purple flowers, and ended at the Sentinel Hotel (formerly known as the Governor Hotel), who were really, really generous and kind to let us come shoot in their empty reception halls.
They were so excited to see sun at Cannon Beach they immediately took off to enjoy it.
Ice Cream in the summer isn’t the easiest for photos, guess that means they’ll have to eat it up quick!
Tran’s favorite color is purple, and she really wanted photos in her ao dai in a field filled with purple flowers.
Let me just reiterate how amazing the Governor Hotel is. They’ve got beautiful banquet and meeting rooms, perfect for any size wedding, and the staff are super awesome.
