Over the July 4th holiday, I had the chance to work in an area that Wilmington wedding photographers get to play in every weekend. Elizabeth & Jeremy had wanted their engagement session in Coastal NC and, despite our best efforts, we couldn’t connect when they were in the Outer Banks for their engagement session. So, being the total troopers they are, they drove back to Wilmington to meet me after only being home for a few days from Duck, NC. It’s been a while since I had done any photography work in Wilmington so our plan, if you want to call it a plan, was to meet in Historic Downtown Wilmington, grab some coffee, then promptly get lost. While this sounds a bit haphazard, I find it always makes for the best photography as you run across truly unique places that you would, ordinarily, never find.
This trip was no different. Since we shot in the morning & early afternoon, the heat wasn’t too bad (from the weather – my clients, however, are smokin hot) so we were able to walk all over the area and work with some lovely gritty backdrops that are perfect for this type of photography. Wilmington wedding photographers have a lovely diversity of scenery at their fingertips and, during my short duration here, I took advantage of it all. As we were finishing up the session, I think we all realized that no food had been consumed so we stopped by the “Slice of Life” for a few slices of really good pizza. Another reason to walk around and see what you can find – great pizza!
I want to thank Elizabeth & Jeremy for making the trip, being so awesome to work with and generally having a great time with my in Wilmington, NC. It was a blast working with you both and I cannot wait for your wedding!
