Southport Engagement Session
DJ + Emily
It’s always amazing to be a part of a couple’s wedding journey, but it’s pretty much the tops when it’s a friend! When Emily got in touch with me after she got engaged I was so pumped! She and I went through ECU’s photography program together so we spent many sleepless nights in the classes, labs, + darkrooms working our butts off for our degrees. And we survived + graduated so that’s pretty cool! We were super honored that a fellow photographer trusts us to make some serious photo magic happen for her wedding.
DJ + Emily have a special love for the Oak Island + Southport area so we thought a little stroll through downtown would be so perfect for their engagements. It did not disappoint! Such a sweet little coastal town gushing with southern charm, we always visit when we’re down in the area and scope on houses we can’t afford while enjoying the scenery 😛
So we picked a direction and headed off to make some cute photos of these two. We met some friendly cats, found all the cute picket fences, and even did a little dancing while strangers passed by. They were a ton of fun and we got to reminisce on some of our college shenanigans along the way. And of course we had to pop over to the marina at sunset for all that good glowy sky. Such a gorgeous end to a beautiful session! We seriously cannot wait for their wedding, it’s going to be ahhmazing!
