Floral Bicycle Engagement Session in Beaufort, NC Austin + Tony | Beaufort, NC

Couple Sessions

Ya’ll, I’ve been DYING to get this engagement session up on the blog!!! The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of traveling to VA, shooting a wedding in Maryland, coming home to SC, going to NC for an engagement session, back to SC for my sister’s birthday then back to VA for another wedding. Whew! But, I’m so grateful for a busy season after a few months of rest and slower work weeks. Austin and Tony have had to reschedule their shoot so many times (I think this is true of everyone the last few months!) but I have been looking SO forward to this shoot for so many reasons! We changed the location quite a few times as we went back and forth determining what would be best. We ultimately landed on Beaufort, NC after Austin visited and fell in love. She got to do a bike tour of the area with Hungry Town Tours and the concept for her engagement shoot was born that day!!

We worked with Betsey from Hungry Town Tours to guide us on the most adorable bikes to our first location – and we decked the bike out in GORGEOUS florals! I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun at an engagement shoot – we literally rode from location to location on the bikes! Then, we headed down to the water for golden hour and it was an absolute DREAM!! I can’t wait for you to see these photos!!

Those EYES!!!

The light, the location, the colors, the outfits…I die!!!

Fave!! You know I’m having a good time when I break out my 85mm!!!

Another fave!!!

The LIGHHTTT at this second location was to-die-for!

Another fave!
