Wrightsville Beach Mermaids | Celestial Surf Studio + Spikey Peach Designs

While I was in Wilmington, North Carolina last summer, I did a mermaid inspired photo shoot at Wrightsville Beach with some ceramic artwork from Celestial Surf Studio and Handmade Costume Mermaid Bras by Spikey Peach Designs.  This gorgeous group of women was kind enough to splash around in the ocean with me.

Stephanie + Justin's Wrightsville Beach Photos

Wilmington + Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina Coastal Couples Photography

I love when photography provides me with the opportunity to travel!  This was my first trip to Wilmington, North Carolina and it totally knocked my socks off.  The town was gorgeous and close to the beach, and as an added bonus the scorching heat and humidity resulted in me losing 10 pounds.  It was amazing getting to see Stephanie and Justin while I was in town and taking some photos at Wrightsville Beach in North Carolina.  They are so sweet and so kind and absolutely hilarious – plus what a super cute couple.  Stephanie is an incredibly talented ceramicist, make sure you check out her website for Celestial Surf Studio and Instagram account [especially if you are addicted to watching time-lapse behind the scenes artists working videos like me]!  Check back soon because while I was in town, we took some photos for her business as well.

Sarah + Matt’s Outer Banks Engagement Session

Beach Engagement Photos Taken at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head and in Manteo on Roanoke Island

Sarah and Matt met back in 2004 at Campbell University when she was a freshman and he was a junior. They started dating a year later and have been together ever since. I loved traveling down to Nags Head in the Outer Banks for their engagement session, I had been dying to do some beach engagement photos. They are such a sweet couple that they even offered to let me stay at their house, but I decided to get a hotel room. I was in dire need of a “vacation” (yes, of course I did end up working the whole time, that’s just how I roll). I’ll be posting photos of their gorgeous Stillhouse Manor wedding in Hillsville, Virginia soon!
