First of all, I want to send a HUGE shout out to this amazing couple! I had a wicked last minute cancellation, like as my sitter walked in the door I got a message from the people I was supposed to be shooting. (In their defense, it was because of the Marine Corps and no fault of their own) We had everything set to go but we just needed people for in front of the camera. I told my amazing sitter that unless she knew someone who wanted to get half naked on the beach and take pictures, we’d probably have to cancel. As I scrambled to find someone, she pulled out her phone, made a call and the session was on!
We met at the Bogue Inlet Pier as clouds loomed overhead and the occasional rain drops sprinkled down. Originally, we were only going to be shooting Mrs M, but she convinced her husband to come in the water with her and it was perfection. The waves were rough which made for some excellent shots of them with the waves crashing over them. Some of the session was shot in natural light, but I was also able to use my assistant and pull out the light and do some on location lighting as well!
Fair warning, this session did get a bit steamy, so this may not be safe for work!
