Outer Banks Anniversary Session | Kim + Wally

It's our absolute FAVORITE thing about what we do. Meeting new people, creating friendships that last for, well, ever, and generally just loving the couples we spend so much time with. Kim and Wally are definitely one of those couples. Two years ago, around this time, Brian and I photographed/filmed their NC State Fair engagement session, and then a few months later, we photographed their wedding at Bass Lake. Now as they are about to approach their two year anniversary this upcoming March, we have had the chance to photograph them again, with their brand new fur-baby!

There is definitely something to be said about photographing someone so many times. The complete and utter trust of everything I do (even when it's a little crazy, and may have involved contact with giant blood-sucking mosquitoes...), the way they know all my suggested poses before I say them, and then how to make them work all fierce-like.

It was kind of amazing. With the perfect timing of our session too, I know I feel soooo creatively fulfilled with how their images turned out! I seriously hope you enjoy them as much as I did - Kim and Wally are simply two of the sweetest people we've ever photographed! 

We heart you two!

I wasn't kidding about those mosquitoes - they were horrible and deadly and we all feared we'd contracted some sort of disease, but when we saw this shot... well I think we got over it.

This was the first time I ever been to or photographed a lighthouse. I'm pretty sure there are about 7 more I need to find an excuse to go out and photograph sometime soon.
