Coastal Inspired Bridal Shoot

Topsail Island, NC

As we stare down Florence this weekend I’d love to reflect on better times on our beautiful NC Crystal Coast.  This time last week Jared and I spent an afternoon at Topsail Island photographing a gorgeous styled shoot.  A group of talented vendors donated their time, efforts, and products to make this vision come to life.  I’m always amazed at the talent we have in our state, just some fantastic work and great people.  

Heather is the mastermind, host, and florist behind this shoot and she slayed it!  She reached out to me a few weeks ago to see if I would be up for tagging along and documenting everything and I’m so glad I said yes.  She is an Ohio native but spends time every year vacationing in Topsail.  She really wanted to put something together here because it’s such a sentimental place for her and her family.  We found a quiet little spot of beach in the golden sun and played wedding for the afternoon.  

I can’t thank the vendors who participated enough, these images would not be possible without you!

If you’re in the Carolinas - please be smart and safe this weekend!  Our coast has always held a special place in my heart and I hope that it weathers this storm.
