If you’ve been around the blog’s water cooler for any semblance of time, you’re probably already aware of how in love I am with sunrise. Is it rough when the alarm goes off at 4:30 am? Yes. But is it worth it? Absolutely! So when Katelynn asked about the possibility of doing their engagement portraits off the South Carolina coast, and they were up for shooting at sunrise, I was in photographer heaven! Sunrise on the east coast is already hard to beat, but shooting out on the water takes it to an entirely other level.
I loved that our time on the boat also gave me the chance to get to know Katelynn & Robbie more! Like how their wedding date will be their 10th anniversary of dating, and how their first date in high school was at a bowling alley (despite the fact that neither of them really like bowling, and haven’t been since). They’re such a relaxed duo, and I love that they don’t let the little things stress them out.
Robbie & Katelynn, your engagement session was SUCH a dream come true! Thank you, thank you for trusting me with an early wakeup and sailboat cruise- it was so worth it. And at the end of your shoot, you two were the epitome of grace under pressure. I was so impressed with you! I can’t wait to see you both again next May! xoxo
