ricky + becky . carolina beach, nc

Oh, man. My baby brother is getting married. I am so so happy for him, but that means he’s all grown up! *tear* I recently took a trip to Ohio to photograph Ricky’s aquatic proposal. Of course, Becky said yes! While I was there, they told me they wanted me to be their wedding photographer. I was honored…and a little nervous to be honest! I take my job very seriously, but it made me re-realize how important the job of capturing someone’s once-in-a-lifetime images are. No pressure, right?!

For their engagement shoot, they decided to come visit me here in North Carolina. We had a great time at Carolina Beach’s Boardwalk Amusement Park surrounded by all the amazing color, fun rides and sweet treats. I think it was the perfect location for this vibrant and fun couple.

We took one last shot at the end of the evening that pretty much spells out Ricky and Becky’s personalities. Ricky is energetic, goofy and the life of the party. Becky is sweet, giggles a lot and keeps Ricky grounded. They are inseparable and are enjoying their engagement like kids in a candy store. Yup, that pretty much sums it up.

Ricky and Becky, I love you! I’m so happy that you have found each other and are in love. Thank you for choosing me as your photographer! It’s an honor and I promise to do my best to make your wedding day even more special through pictures.

A big thanks to Jennie and Craig for a great afternoon! It was a pleasure to get to know you and we wish you both the best!
