Oh how excited I am to introduce you to another one of my beautiful 2017 CFP couples! Meet Liz & Dave! I spent the evening celebrating with them during their romantic sunset Corolla NC beach engagement session. It was super important to them that they have some portraits taken with the Currituck Lighthouse in the background. And there’s no better way to do that then to go to the Whalehead Club! When Liz and Dave first started dating, Dave saw a picture of the lighthouse on Liz’s fridge and he excitedly said “hey that’s my lighthouse!” Liz giggled and says she replies with “no that’s my lighthouse!”. In this they discover that as children they both vacationed on the Corolla beaches often and that they both shared a fascination with the lighthouse. It’s with that love for the memories that they both have for Corolla and the Currituck Lighthouse that having their wedding there would be the best way to start their married life together!
As we walked and talked, I absolutely loved hearing more about their destination wedding plans at the Historic Corolla Wedding Chapel next May. And let me tell you Liz is totally on top of her wedding planning! She’s the first bride that ever emailed me her wedding mood board when inquiring! Being a planner myself I have to say I knew then that we were a perfect fit! And she really made me fall in love with her even more when she starts telling me about how she was sure to get her Kendra Scott Harlow necklace for her necklace because she had read one of blog posts on preparing for your engagement session! It was then that she was able to tell me about many more posts she has read and loved! If I ever wondered if anyone ever read my blog…..the answer is YES! This beautiful lady has read many of them!!! AHHHH I just love her!! In all of her reading and following my social media she has really fallen in love with those cotton candy romantic sunset beach portraits. And I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing beach sky that night! In Liz & Dave’s words…”it was absolutely perfect and everything we hoped it would be!” I’m just so thankful that I was able to capture some of my favorite beach engagement portraits yet!!
What I also loved about their engagement session was that it was super important for them to incorporate someone beyond special into their engagement session….their son Bennett! Oh how adorable he is!! He didn’t quite know what to think about my camera in face…I’m blaming it on the heat LOL! How could you not want to bring him along for some pictures?? Besides being a handsome little guy…he’s a part of Liz & Dave. He is their world. You can just see the love and the joy in their eyes as they would sing to him as they hoped for that big grin he has would appear. I couldn’t have imagined shooting this session without him! As Liz told me on the beach “you’re documenting our story”….and Bennett so far has to be one of the best chapters!
Liz and Dave…and Bennett too…..Thank you for a wonderful time! I can’t wait to see you again and to help you capture another beautiful and amazing chapter in your love story!!
