Courtney & Ryan’s Surfing Outer Banks Engagement Session | Outer Banks Wedding Photographer

Courtney & Ryan’s Outer Banks Engagment Session can be described with a lot of different words, but my favorite?? EPIC. I had SO much fun with their session. When Courtney I met (what seems like forever ago!!) to talk about me photographing their upcoming wedding, we got on the subject of our menfolk never wanting to take photos. Courtney, a photographer herself, totally understands my gripe that my husband hates having his picture taken and in all our years together we really have very few – aside from our wedding photos. I’ve had the idea for a surfing themed engagement session, and I’ve just been waiting for the right couple. Enter Courtney & Ryan! Ryan is already a surfer, and aside from being super adorable, I knew that Courtney would totally get my vision.

We met up in South Nags Head on what could have possibly been one of the windiest days we’ve had so far! Courtney Instagramed a photo while getting her “glam on” for our session, little did we know that the wind would be so crazy! They totally rocked it out! They braved the wind, rolled in the sand, and just did whatever I asked of them. At one point Ryan had Courtney in a lift, and then dropped her – right in the sand! I couldn’t help but laugh when I heard a lady behind me say “did he just DROP her???”.

Ryan was so patient, and we finally did one last outfit change and headed out with the boards. The red flags were flying, so we couldn’t go all the way out into the water but we were definitely able to get a lot of really fun shots. I can’t wait for their wedding this upcoming October!!
