"I saw this place and have wanted to take pictures here ever since....Um, wait.  *Inspects*  Uhhh.  You aren't allergic to poison ivy are you....?" 

"Uhh kinda yeah.  But let's do it."

I first got to take Shannon's pictures when her older sis, Stephanie, was also getting her senior photos done a few years ago—and now it's her turn!  She was more than gracious when her dreamin' photographer went off on a pursuit and realized that the poison ivy was not only incredibly healthy, but pretty much solid thick in the location.  She wasn't deterred, and was willing to brave all kindsa tall grasses and prospects of hidden creatures in an uncut field—quite a trooper :)

She's got a whimsical spirit about her and doesn't hesitate to use her voice to praise God.  Best wishes, hun!

Ocean Isle | Sarah & Kevin

For the longest time, I've had a fascination with the ocean—despite having an irrational fear of sinking off a dark drop-off, or not even being that strong a swimmer, from the safety of the beach I really am a fan.

When Sarah and I met up at Panera to talk details, a beach wedding had been passed over for another option.  However I got a glorious call not too long after, and not only was it on for Ocean Isle, she was also willing to get in the water with her dress. [Yeeah yeeeeaah!]

The day of the wedding approached, along with a storm front—the early morning brought a healthy amount of clouds that hovered over the day, but they kindly (mostly) held off for the festivities.  It gave us more than enough time to have a blast and a half with fam and friends we'd all gone to school or summer camp with.  

Awesome indeed.


With the last touches, she was ready for a Daddy-Daughter Reveal...
Wedding parties who laugh together are always the raddest to work with...
For those HIMYM fans...

[ P A R T  II ]
Fantastic times are when the bride and groom get away...and then rendezvous with me for more time.  We took our time and then headed off for the pier.

And whenceforth came final Bridal fun before we parted ways...
