I met these two friends of mine when I started working at Ironclad Brewery in downtown Wilmington. Ethan and I got hired right around the same time so we were the new kids together, and we all instantly became friends. Ethan and Abbie even got married at Ironclad, and this fall was the perfect time for an anniversary photo shoot. We braved the cold (okay maybe it was like 50 degrees but for us North Carolinians – that is cold – and yes, all three of us are even from Ohio) and walked around Fort Fisher with their trusty dog, the handsome little Fozzie bear! He may not have loved having his picture taken, but we loved having him there anyway. Ethan and Abbie even went out into the ocean by the end of our shoot as the sun was setting and the waves attempted to tackle them, but instead we got some great photos! I always feel so lucky when I get to do what I love and share that with my friends, so thanks for letting me take your pictures, and happy anniversary!! Can’t wait to celebrate all of your future anniversaries, too :)
