Michael and I met Amy and Ryan in downtown Hampton where they live. They are walking distance from the water, and they know their neighbors like they have been there for years and years. As we walked down the street towards the water, I made them stop multiple times where the lighting was pretty. They were so patient with me because I know that they REALLY just wanted to get to the waterfront!
Being on the water is where they are most at home. That’s their happy place! I remember learning about sailing on Amy’s grandparent’s little sailboat up in Maine when we were little. It’s so awesome that that part of her life has carried over into this new season and she’s marrying someone who appreciates it just as much as she does!
They race and spend their free time on a sail boat owned and cared for by two of the sweetest elderly gentlemen we have ever met! They took us out on a quick ride during their shoot and it was so entertaining!!! I loved their commentary! They are used to seeing Amy with her hair up and in laid back sailing attire. Seeing her in a dress, hair down with lip stick on was a shock to them, and they couldn’t help but keep telling her how beautiful she looked! It was like we brought two sweet grandpas along for their shoot!!!
I’m excited to capture their beautiful wedding this coming fall!! Until then, enjoy getting to know these two via their engagement pictures!!!
