When Johana contacted me and said that she wanted to do an anniversary session and a trash the dress I was SO excited! The sun had just started peeking out through the dark rain clouds when we met up on the southend of Wrightsville Beach. When I met Brian and Johana I new this was going to be a beautiful and romantic session!

We started off by doing the traditional anniversary session. Brian had proposed to Johana on this same beach 4 years prior with the help of close friends. He had stops along the beach with videos and at the end Brian dropped down on a knee and asked Johana to walk through this life together forever, as the waves crashed in the background. It was so amazing to be in the same spot as they relived that special day just a few years prior.

For the second look, Johana decided to rip the underskirt of her wedding dress out and make it a cute outfit. She is so creative and needless to say, I was obsessed.  I had so much fun photographing her! Then came her wedding dress. My goal was to make it super romantic and I believe we captured just that. We wrapped up the shoot knee deep in the ocean as the last few rays slipped behind the clouds.

Xoxo, Kailey
