Meeting new couples is an awesome perk of the job, but it’s even cooler when an old high school friend reaches out with the great news that he is engaged! Ted and I were friends in high school and lost touch over the years like so many people do. I was thrilled when he wanted to book me for his engagement session and I was so excited to meet the soon-to-be Mrs! Their Wildwood engagement session was rescheduled originally because we thought the weather looked bad one Saturday back in May. Of course, it turned out to be beautiful. We planned on another Saturday in June and the weather was perfect!
We started their session at the now closed 2nd Street Annie’s where Ted and Vicki first met. The sun was high in the sky but gave the dramatic look I was hoping for.
After 2nd Street Annie’s walked to the boardwalk and headed for the carousel for a few fun photos! The sun flare and the colors made this part of the day awesome! It was not awesome when I was told I could not stand on the outside during the carousel ride, which ruined the perspective I had planned! But it all worked out anyway…
When we were done at the boardwalk we took a short drive to the beach! I was very impressed with Vicki’s skills at getting changed in the car while driving! The beach was absolutely perfect and has me rethinking my love for Philadelphia and architecture! The water, sand, and sunlight were to die for.
Next stop – light house! How gorgeous are these gardens?
And last but not least we stopped along the water near Ted’s family’s home to close out the night where we even got the dog into a few photos!
Congratulations Ted and Vicki and thank you so much for having me create these photos for you!
