Brenda and Steve’s Cape Fear engagement session completely filled my cup! We explored the Southend of Pleasure Island near Fort Fisher, something I have wanted to do for two years! I first drove out on this very peaceful beach two years ago for my own anniversary. My husband and I kayaked with literally not a soul in site. It was completely magical, and I have wanted to go back out there with a client every since!
When Brenda said they recently got a jeep and wanted to take it out on the beach, I didn’t even have to consider it. When they agreed to the south end, I was absolutely giddy! Wilmington NC isn’t a very big city, so we have a tendency to photograph in the same places. I can always be inspired, no matter where I am, but there is something really special about exploring a new place and being inspired for the very first time! There is truly nothing like it. Add in their sweet pup, and beautiful weather, and I was basically in photographer heaven. I didn’t plan on putting this blog together today, as we were literally just shooting this past Friday, but I simply couldn’t wait. I fell in love with these photos one by one and couldn’t wait to share!
Brenda and Steve, thank you so much for being up for the unknown and for trusting me to take you somewhere you have never been for your engagement pictures. I am so very excited to document your wedding. I know it’s going to be a magical day!
