Stephanie, Jonathan and I met in downtown Wilmington NC at one of the local Port City Java coffee houses for their engagement session. They are the happy winning couple of Cary Magazines' Dream Wedding. The magazine ran a competition for a deserving couple to win a wedding. This studio is proud to be a sponsor of the competition. As an additional bonus, I upgraded their local engagement session to a destination. The engagement session was a blast from start to finish. Initially meeting at the coffee house, with the sole purpose to get to know one another. Little bits of information about the two of them helps when I think of portraits.
We shot around the Cotton Exchange and some of the neighboring streets. Then headed off to Southport for a little bit of different setting and finishing up at Oak Island. I'm never one for half doing it! From urban to beach.
