Bridal Session at Elizabeth Gardens - McKenna and Byron

When McKenna and I started planning the locations of her bridal session. It dawned on me that the locations we used for their engagement session would be an amazing surprise to Byron and a great experience for her. Additionally, Byron's pride and joy is an old sailing boat he has been lovingly restoring which is anchored behind their Outerbanks family home. 

Thinking this through, we started her bridal session at the Elizabeth Garden's in Manteo, then moved to downtown Manteo to use the sailing boat and then finishing up with the sun setting over the Outerbanks fresh water intake. 

With her mother, family and friends involved in the session, we moved from one location to the next. I treated the session as a model shoot, with the intention to create art and magazine worthy portraits. I wanted to give McKenna an experience she would never forget.
