Wilmington Styled Shoot on Wrightsville Beach | North Carolina Wedding Photographer
A Non-Traditional Beach Wedding in Wilmington, North Carolina
Sand,Dunes,Water, and the Ocean Breeze
Can I just begin with how much my feet began to hurt from all of the sand exfoliation!? It was totally worth it, though. This styled shoot is full of so many amazing and fun vendors! It took each one of us to plan for this shoot, many of us located in different parts of North Carolina, and we all had to travel to the beach to pull this off. But who would say no to the beach when you only live a few short hours away!? We even managed to somehow not get sunburnt! This shoot has brought me to the conclusion that I absolutely love to shoot on the beach, the colors are so beautiful and the sand reflects light so well. It's so peaceful by the sea.

Oh, by the way, we woke up at the crack of dawn to beat the heat.
We gathered at one of our hotel rooms with donuts and mimosas while the model was getting ready. Then, a few of us packed up the stuff (again) and head out to the beach to set up! We got to the parking just in time.. it filled up immediately! I must say, setting up the decor was just as fun as photographing the shoot. Around 1 o'clock we packed up and all headed out to a local pizza joint. The pizza was amazing too, of course.
