Sarah and Yoshi originally hired me to photograph their wedding day at a beach house in Wilmington, North Carolina this spring. I met these two at a coffee shop and we hit it off right away and I couldn’t WAIT to be there for their wedding day. Unfortunately, their date fell directly at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, and they had to figure out a new wedding plan. They decided to elope in Charlotte, with ONLY the two of them and their officiant, so I wasn’t able to be there. We were all really sad that we didn’t get to work together, so they ended up taking a little mini honeymoon in Wilmington. They rented a tiny little beach house and headed here with their two pups, and invited me out to Carolina Beach to get some newlywed photos!! I was so excited to get to see them again, and meet their sweet dogs! Of course, it rained almost the entire time they were here, so they enjoyed their time together in their beach house, playing Uno, watching all the movies, and snuggling their pups. There could definitely be worse vacations, right? So we risked our chances with the weather and walked to the beach in the rain, and still got some incredible photos. I’m so happy for Sarah & Yoshi, even though they didn’t get the wedding they had planned, these two are lucky to have each other and have such positive attitudes about the whole thing. And you know what? THEY’RE MARRIED! What else matters???
