RITA + SHAWN

BALD HEAD ISLAND  |  WILMINGTON, NC

This was our first adventure to Bald Head Island! I think the thing that really set this wedding apart for me was being able to shoot "true" sunset photos on the beach - the sunset over the water since the beach was on the west end of the island! (You NEVER get that in North Carolina). But truly - the fun, love, and family that Rita and Shawn share was incredible! I had so much fun covering their wedding (and I think their photos turned out PARFAIT!!) I know i'm incredibly behind in blogging (can you consider an entire year being behind?), but now that I have some down time I really get to reflect on all the weddings we covered in 2017. Wedding Photography isn't just about the beauty of the photos, its about telling someone's love story on the biggest day of their lives! You have to get to know them to understand their couples personality. Once you've done that - well, then photographing your couple becomes a piece of cake.
