Rachael & James - Oregon Coast Wedding

Rachael & James’ wedding is one I’ve been looking forward to for a long time. I was fortunate enough to spend the weekend with them in Cannon Beach. We shot their engagement session (check it out here) last September and since then it’s been so cool to pick up on all the little quirks and things that make their relationship such their own. Rachael and I first met back in high school almost a decade ago (I’m not freaking out, you’re freaking out) and it’s been a pleasure getting to know James throughout this past year.

While we ended up getting quite an ugly storm on the wedding day and needing to move the ceremony indoors, I’ll still take a day on the Oregon Coast any time. Thankfully we did catch a 40 minute break just long enough to get some portraits outside. The rest of the weekend was dry though and I had a wonderful time with everyone over these three days. I don’t think I’ve ever met a bridal party that was more welcoming and friendly. From Friday night brewery trips with the boys, to late night hangs with the girls, every minute was awesome. This is a weekend I will not soon forget. Rachael, James, thank you both so much for allowing me to be a part of such a special time.
