This Elopement shoot at Ruby Beach was one of the most stunning I’ve ever been a part of. Seattle wedding photography has always blown me away- and I knew I wanted to shoot at more locations around Seattle! This was my first time visiting Olympic National Park and I was not disappointed!
Typical of the PNW, when we showed up to Ruby Beach it was very foggy. If you can’t tell, it increasingly got more cloudy as sun went down. But honestly, I loved it! It is so true to the rainy, moody, upper left USA vibes.
We stayed in Forks the night before and met these two at the entrance to the beach. I had this stunning boho crown I had yet to use at a shoot and I knew it would fit the magical, misty scenery perfectly. Doesn’t Olivia look like a woodland fairy queen?!
These two blew me away with how sweet they were towards each other. When they originally reached out to me, Olivia had voiced how they had always wanted photos at Ruby Beach but had just never done it. I was so glad I could made their dreams come to life!
If you are considering eloping at Olympic National Park, I would highly recommend Ruby Beach. It’s also not too far from the rainforest (say what!!!) and the mountains in Olympic, so you can have the best of all worlds!
I want to end with these sweet words that Olivia left me about our time together:
“Abbey is SO talented. I was worried about feeling awkward or not looking natural, but if you trust Abbey and just let her tell you what to do, your photos will be amazing. It’s so hard to pick which ones we want to frame!!! I have never felt more beautiful in a photograph. Abbey is really easy going and we felt so comfortable working with her. You will not be disappointed!!!”
