I love to take pictures; I love the beach. That makes taking pictures at the beach something I REALLY love. So I was excited when Adrienne and Chip told me they wanted to have their engagement session at Wrightsville Beach. These guys really love the beach, too, and they’re even having their wedding in Wilmington next April, so they knew photos on the beach would be more meaningful for them than any other location. We decided on an afternoon shoot, with the hopes of doing downtown Wilmington, then going over to the beach for sunset.
The day of the shoot I wok up to clouds and rain in the Raleigh area. I talked with Adrienne and we were both worried about the weather, but I knew that things change quickly at the beach. To make things easier, though, we decided to skip the downtown pictures and just focus on Wrightsville. The drive down was cloudy, cloudy, cloudy…then, about an hour out, the clouds started to break, and the sun started popping through. By the time I got over to the the south end of Wrightsville Beach, we had our perfect weather, and the pictures turned out great.
Thanks, guys. I’m excited for the wedding next April.
