A chilly evening on the Oregon Coast with the sweetest couple who spontaneously drove up to Hug Point for an anniversary session. This Oregon Coast anniversary session was so memorable! We ran through the water as the tides came in, attempted to build a bonfire that totally failed and then took over another groups fire after they left. After, we sat and made s’mores while the sun set and the stars slowly appeared above. We talked about photography, wedding and all the wonderful joys of this life. Theresa & Simon car camped on the coast after their session. This was such a perfect day!
Hug Point State Recreation Site offers an easy access to the beach, a peek at some interesting local history and loads of scenic beauty. Just 5 miles south of Cannon Beach, this little wayside includes forested picnic areas, a restroom and a short walkway to the beach.
The lovely sandy cove beach just off the park is backed by hills vegetated by salal, ferns and sitka spruce. Located between Austin Point to the south and Hug Point to the north, a short walk north reveals a seasonal waterfall, caves carved into sandstone cliffs and tide pools accessible during low tide.
Please be aware of the tide when exploring the beach and headlands of Hug Point State Recreation Site! It is possible to become stranded by the incoming tide when exploring the point. Tide and sand conditions change with the seasons. If in doubt, don’t go out!
Let’s start planning your epic engagement session!
