Wrightsville Beach Engagement | Mallory & Justin

Wrightsville Beach North Carolina Engagement Session

I just LOVE the Wilmington, NC area and always get so excited to be able to spend time on Wrightsville beach!  As a PA girl, the beach has always been my happy place and although I never actually lived there, Wrightsville Beach sort of felt like a home away from home from the first time I visited.  I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to shoot Mallory & Justin's engagement session on our most recent visit & even test out a new camera system, the Fuji X-h1.  

This is actually a two part blog post, and you can check out the Wilmington Arboretum part of the session here.  

We started the morning at the Arboretum, took a break midday, and then met back up in the evening at Mallory & Justin's beach house to shoot part two on the beautiful Wrightsville Beach at golden hour!  We had the south end of the beach mostly to ourselves which made for some gorgeous aerial shots (check out the color of that water!).  We then took a little walk down to Crystal Pier because, well, I'm sorrrrrt of a pier geek, if that's a thing.  I just think they're beautiful and so picturesque!  We ended the night watching a gorgeous sunset on the south end of the beach, which was the perfect way to close out our evening.  

Thanks so much Mallory & Justin for trusting me with this session... enjoy & of course congratulations!

Olivia & Grant | Snowy Engagement Session

I kicked off my first engagement session of the year yesterday with Olivia & Grant, one of my 2019 couples!  This snowy engagement session was seriously the perfect thing to get me prepped for my winter weddings that I get to photograph starting this weekend.  Olivia & Grant were SUCH troopers, and trekked all over to some of my favorite spots in our area, all while Grant wasn't feeling well.  Couples like this make my job so easy, and I love that they were up for anything (even an impromptu engagement session that we literally planned via Instagram yesterday morning).  Congratulations Olivia & Grant... enjoy this glimpse into your winter snowy engagement session!

Lewisburg Engagement Session | Miranda & Nate

Miranda & Nate are one of my 2017 couples (their wedding is coming up next weekend, actually) and they decided to take me on a tour of downtown Lewisburg for their Lewisburg Engagement Session.  They've been together for about six years now, so we visited all of their date night spots in Lewisburg!  It was probably the hottest day of the year thus far for this session, so I have to preface this by saying Nate handled this session extremely well since we trekked to a ton of really great little spots, including where they met years back, their first date location, and where Nate popped the question! Miranda & Nate met after Miranda relocated to Lewisburg after completing nursing school.  Nate proposed in the gazebo of Hufnagle Park, so we stopped there for awhile and Nate even got back down on one knee.  I think that was a first for me to experience at an engagement session, and so nice!  Congratulations Miranda & Nate... I'm so looking forward to your Barn at Boone's Dam wedding later this month!

Summer Engagement Session | Erin & Chris

I have known Erin for quite a few years and I'm so happy to be able to photograph her upcoming wedding next May.  I include engagement sessions with each of my Wedding Collections, which brings us to this blog post!  I have a lot of couples who question whether they need the engagement session, but I must say it is absolutely the best way to get comfortable in front of the camera and for me to work with you on any posing we might do, so that it feels natural and the exact opposite of posed!  Erin chose a summer engagement session on and around my property in Stillwater, which I absolutely love shooting at, and is always available for all of my sessions!  Summer is one of my favorite seasons to shoot, when everything is green beautiful.  Shooting film more and more recently has given me a greater appreciation for the gorgeous greens that film produces, so I'm a sucker for a field on a warm summer day!  Since none of this actually has to do with Erin and Chris (who seem to be naturally photogenic and easy to photograph, making my job fairly simple), I suppose I should tell you about their engagement! Erin & Chris met at The Berwick Brewery which is a great little spot with hands down the best artisan pizzas around.  Chris actually popped the question there as well!  Or dropped the ring out of his pocket in the parking lot and Erin grabbed it.  Either way, Erin said yes and the rest is history!  We talked about everything from building a house to 'rolling with it' when it comes to raising kids, so I have high hopes for this marriage and any future babies that might happen down the road.  :-)  Congratulations Erin & Chris - I'm so looking forward to your big day next May!
