Haystack Rock, a beloved Oregon coast landmark, has been a favorite wedding portrait location for many years. Just an hour or so from Portland, Haystack rock is part of Cannon Beach, Oregon. Aside from the natural beauty of the beach wedding portraits, the nearby town features a plethora of adorable shops and eateries. If you’re planning an intimate elopement or sunset portraits, Haystack rock is worthy of consideration. For larger weddings, guests can enjoy the local hotels or beach-front rentals while they await the wedding celebration. This unique monolith is among Portland photographer’s favorite attractions on the Oregon coast and truly a must see natural wonder.
