Beautiful night for a beautiful engagement session with Chelsey and Ross we photographed this great couple at Wrightsville Beach then he took her on a special plane ride, truly a match made in heaven!
What exactly is an engagement session? In most cases it is a casual photo shoot with your photographer. It is an opportunity for you to be photographed prior to your wedding, and get to know your photographer and see images of yourselves before the wedding day. The photographer you hired to capture your wedding images should be the same individual who shoots your engagement photographs. The idea is to build rapport and feel comfortable with the person taking your wedding photographs.
Try to get your engagement pictures taken soon after you hire your photographer, not weeks before the wedding. By arranging your session early, you will have the opportunity to enjoy your images during most of your engagement period. Should you wait until the wedding is close at hand, engagement photos will seem like one more thing to be done and little time to do it. The engagement session should be light and playful with plenty of time to capture just the right moments.
To help make these images special, pick a location that has some significance to you both. It could be the place where you got engaged or a first date. The location could be a place as simple as your home, a restaurant, museum, or maybe the college where you met. If you can’t think of anything, ask your photographer for advice. He or she will most likely know some picturesque settings nearby such as beaches, a national park, or even surprise you with a location you never would have considered on your own.
Another advantage to being photographed prior to your wedding day is the opportunity for the bride to have a test run done on her make-up. Set up an appointment with the person doing your make-up for the wedding right before your engagement shoot. This way you will get to see how your make-up will look, not only in the mirror but how it will photograph. If there are adjustments to be made, it will not be too late.

The Holiday Inn at Wrightsville Beach is a beautiful oasis in southeast North Carolina.
The Holiday Inn oceanfront resort was remodeled last year and the guest rooms have excellent views of the Atlantic Ocean, and the Wrightsville Beach Sound and come equipped with new LCD tvs and microwave ovens and small refrigerators.
The Resort boasts a comfortable lobby with the live parrot mascots Abby and Gabby, a variety of spacious meeting rooms for large and small events. A very nice ocean front restaurant and lounge. A well stocked gift and sundry shop, and indoor and an outdoor pool, with a poolside tikki bar.
Minutes from downtown Wilmington and the ILM Airport the Holiday inn at Wrightsville Beach is great for the entire family. Plenty of wonderful shopping and restaurants minutes away as well as golf, tennis,boating,sailing,bowling and movie theaters. Not to mention fishing off of one of the longest piers on the east coast at Johnny Mercer’s Pier.
