Emily and Matt are both from Ohio. They met in high school, went to different colleges in Ohio and are now in the Triangle area while Matt is in grad school at UNC. A few weeks ago, Matt proposed, and they knew they wanted to get engagement photos some place special, some place beautiful, some place memorable. Why not the beach at sunset?
We met at Wrightsville Beach near Wilmington in the late afternoon on a beautiful, clear Sunday. Despite the great light and beautiful surroundings, it was cold. 55 degrees doesn’t sound that bad, but with the ocean wind whipping, it can get a bit nippy, and when the sun goes down, those temps drop fast. Despite being frozen in a sundress, Emily was a trooper, and I think the photos show. We captured some great moments on the wide, flat sand of Wrightsville and, as the sun went down, were able to snap some great postcard pictures. Congrats, Emily and Matt. I had fun working with you guys!
