Suzanne & Eric | Wilson, NC | Engagement Session | March 10th, 2017
Eric and Suzanne asked for an Engagement Session that was active, silly, playful, and capturing the FUN time they have together! We were immediately excited to photograph a session with that theme in mind!!
They wanted to incorporate their Sailboat, which is super special because Eric built it HIMSELF, and they enjoy sailing and being on the water together. Another special part was the location they chose! Their first date AND proposal took place there, so it was fitting to shoot our Engagement Session there as well!
We photographed Suzanne’s beautiful engagement ring ON the sailboat, especially since their wedding theme is nautical. Eric had Churchwell’s CUSTOM DESIGN the ring, comprised of BOTH their family’s jewels!!! Suzanne never wanted a “typical” diamond ring, so Eric knocked it out of the PARK with this meaningful, unique ring.
I NEED to tell you what AMAZING people these two are. The elements were testing Suzanne & Eric every step of the way for this Engagement Session. First, their truck (pulling their sailboat) didn’t start, so they had to anxiously wait for it to work. Next, Suzanne’s foot was in a BOOT from breaking part of it, so she couldn’t be as “active” as she normally would be!!! Then, it was COLD and to top it off, INCREDIBLY WINDY at 25MPH!!!!!! So, Eric couldn’t even put the sails up on their sailboat.
Through all of that, most people would’ve begged to reschedule, or just “pity party” about all the things that didn’t go “according to plan”. NOT THESE TWO!!!! Suzanne and Eric (and I’m NOT lying) laughed and had fun the ENTIRE TIME. You’d think it was warm and beautiful outside from the way they smiled and were so JOYFUL!!!!
I love these two for their spirits. Suzanne’s romper’s “cape” (as we called it) was PERFECT to catch in the wind, and I loved her bohemian outfit. Suzanne’s makeup was done to perfection by Merle Norman. The thought and effort they put into the session was awesome, and it paid off!
We hope you love these images as much as we do!!! Enjoy a few of our favorites from our time together!!!
