I recently had the greatest time photographing John and Patricia Brister. Patricia contacted me about their vacation in Wrightsville Beach. They had been recently married within the past year, but due to John’s military commitments, they never had the chance to do an engagement type portrait session. John was scheduled to deploy to Germany and life was going to get busy. They moved one week after we did the shoot and as this is written are probably unpacking and settling in their new location. We had a great time and ran all over the Island to different locations. At the end we ended up back at Shell Island Resort and I convinced them to get in the water. They were real troopers about the idea. By then it was quiet at that end of WB and we had a little piece of sand to ourselves. These are just a few of the afternoons captures. I want to give a special shout out to  Shell Island Resort, as John told me they provide a generous discount to our folks serving in the military. Very cool. I wish Patricia and John all the best on their new journey.
