I am always happy to photograph people in love, so when I had the chance to photograph my sister and her fiance Josh, I was stoked! Josh makes Melinda extremely happy and they balance each other out really well. I know when I see them together that they are a good couple and will continue to be for years to come. We went for an early afternoon engagement session at the Whalehead Club in Outer Banks, NC. We went a bit early in the afternoon, because we had to be back for dinner and the family ‘cornhole‘ tournament (anyone not familiar, please google it, totally not an obscenity:) We chose this location for it’s wonderful mix of backdrops: the sound, a bridge, the clubhouse itself, and then the lighthouse in the distance. We also chose a day where they were doing an Art Show, which was closing down when we got there, but still had some pretty neat stuff from local artists. At one point during our engagement session, we ran into my aunt and uncle who were enjoying a wine tasting there that afternoon, which made for a nice intermission. All in all, I had a great time photographing them as a couple (they even went along with me suggesting to put Melinda in a tree…..also there was an interesting truck painted like a chicken that I made them stand next to…and the cactus patch I made them sit by….-you guys are such great sports!) I cannot wait for June when I have the privilege of photographing their wedding in Ohio! Love you both!
