Allison + Zachary | Atlantic Beach Engagement Photos | Atlantic Beach Wedding Photographer

It’s no secret I’ve fallen in love with North Carolina since we moved here almost 5 years ago. The beauty of this state never ceases to amaze and inspire me. Sadly, Hurricane Florence has caused immense destruction across eastern North Carolina, leaving the landscape bruised and battered. Even worse off than the land are the Carolinians who lost their homes and worldly possessions. It is truly heartbreaking and every day since Florence made landfall I’ve prayed for those suffering and the ones who lost their lives. We will never forget what this hurricane has done but I am so proud of how the communities impacted have rallied and supported each other. #CarolinaStrong is more than a hashtag— it’s become a battle cry backed up by action and compassion.

I wanted to share this beach engagement session from earlier this year because a) it’s gorgeous, b) Alli and Zack got married last weekend, and c) I wanted to pay tribute to this Carolina coast I have grown to love so much. I guess you can consider this blog post a love letter written with images…

Emily & Nathan | Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center Wedding | Beaufort NC Wedding Photographer

If you're single and your mom wants to set you up with her friend's kid, you might want to let her. Just ask Emily and Nathan. They went to the same Virginia high school but it wasn't until years later that the two fell in love. Nathan was stationed at a military base in Washington state and Emily was in grad school a couple of hours away. That's when their moms, who worked together, decided to play matchmakers. I'd say those motherly instincts were pretty spot on. I mean, this is a wedding blog, so we can guess what happened next. It's safe to say, moms really do know best :)

Emily and Nathan chose to get married in one of my favorite little towns here in eastern Carolina: Beaufort. It's a waterfront dream with rich nautical history and picturesque sunsets. It's basically the perfect place for a wedding and a great match for Emily's sophisticated style. The Ann Street Methodist Church set the scene for a traditional ceremony-- and the Harvey W. Smith Watercraft Center proved ideal for an elegant, rustic celebration, to which Nathan and Emily arrived in style via a boat Nathan built himself. Note to future brides and grooms: your guests will be really impressed if you arrive in a boat. It was so cool!

Emily and Nathan have since left North Carolina for their next Marine Corps adventure but I hope these wedding photos will always be a reminder of this beautiful coast where this chapter of life together began. Semper Fi, Mr. and Mrs. Hayba!
