A few months ago I emailed my good photographer friend Candi with an email that basically said, “Candi — what would it take to get you to come all the way down to Bald Head Island in May for an anniversary session?” I honestly wasn’t sure if it was something she would want to do — it was a loooong drive for only a few hours of a session, and it was during one of the busiest wedding months of the year. I was so excited when she replied saying she would love to do it!
Initially, we were supposed to meet on Monday, but the weather looked like it wasn’t going to cooperate with our plans, so Candi suggested we try Friday instead. Honestly, it worked out really well for us, because I knew that if we had waited until Monday for the pictures, I’d probably be super sunburned (anyone else relate to that?)! Not to mention — we got a perfect evening for photos! Sure, it was a little humid, and my curls totally fell out before we even started, but we seriously couldn’t have asked for better weather. and they turned out absolutely gorgeous!
I can’t tell you how much we appreciate Candi not only for our beautiful photos, but for making the trip all the way down to Bald Head (which required a 4 hour drive and a 20 minute ferry ride each way) AND for changing her schedule around because of weather. She is an amazing photographer to work with, and we just love her! We are SO happy with how our anniversary photos turned out — check them out below!!
