engaged! Katie + Matt, part three

(continued from parts one and two)

…part three. We made it, y’all! This is the last post I’m writing about this engagement session. I know, I know, I went a little overboard. Couldn’t help myself , I’m crazy about this shoot and this couple.

So, right… we left Greenfield Lake, and headed down toward Wrightsville Beach. On the way to Mercer’s, we stopped in a gorgeous little neighborhood on the island…

Probably the most idyllic, most perfect neighborhood in all of Wilmington. No offense to Wilmington neighborhoods that aren’t this one.

Then the beach! We went straight to Johnny Mercer’s Pier, because (a) ample parking; (b) cool concrete pier; (c) arcade and hot dogs; (d) umm… maybe there is no (d).

A few shots under and near the pier…

Then up to the arcade! It’s… well, not much of an arcade. In my memory it was much bigger, better lit, and more fun than this. But we still passed the time while hot dogs cooked for us.

When we walked out onto the pier, it was freezing. Probably not “freezing”, but it had to be in the 40’s. (note: it was probably 62 degrees. We’re wimps down here)

Katie brought hats 🙂

At the very end of our session, I wanted to grab a few shots of Katie’s ring. Then, on the way back downtown, we saw the most gorgeous sunset… and I had to grab a few shots of it, just to round out our day in pictures.

There you go. Epic E-Shoot 2012, v1.0. Let’s see if I can match or beat this one this year!!! Thanks for sticking with me through all three parts of this. I know it was a lot of work, but wasn’t it fun?
