They met at a party, he called dibs on her the moment he first saw her. That night Brian set out to teach Martha a game she had never played before, and wooed her with his beer pong skills. Many dates and different lessons later she said yes to him in a surprise engagement proposal in which all their family had come in from out of state to see.
The day of their engagement session in Fort Fisher was beautiful, the waves crashed against the rocks, and the sun warmed our skin. She styled herself in a 50s inspired blue midi skirt, white blouse, and red heels paired with her red lipstick, looking just gorgeous. Brian opted for a relaxed look of shorts and a button up. We found a perfect spot across the street with gorgeous trees to set up. Martha had given me her cruiser bike to decorate with doilies I had been collecting months prior to the session. She knows I’m obsessed with the Free People clothing lifestyle and insisted she trusted me and my artistic license, for photographers out there reading this, isn’t she the most awesome bride ever? They had so much fun riding the cruiser down the hills in the sunshine finally sitting down for a faux picnic, reading love books and my personal favorite, snuggling in flower beds. Their engagement session was just perfect, both of them graciously went along with any idea that popped into my mind. We concluded their session with a set of silhouettes as the sun had began to set behind them, she ran into his arms and he spun her around, just the stuff love stories are made of. This lovely bride and groom to be will be celebrating their wedding in downtown Wilmington, NC this September, absolutely cant wait to capture the next chapter of their love story. Congratulations Martha & Brian!!
