Laura is one of the first friends I met when I started college. We quickly bonded and have remained friends ever since. Our friendship is the kind where it doesn’t matter how long you go without seeing each other, it’s like you just pick up where you left off. Living far away for quite a while, we didn’t see each other much and I had’t had the chance to meet the new man in her life, Dave. It didn’t take much time to see that Dave is a perfect fit for Laura. They are definitely well matched, and he dotes on her like every girl deserves. Dave is in the Air Force, and a few short weeks after their June wedding they’ll be headed off for 3 year in England. I’m looking forward to photographing their wedding at the beautiful Abilena Plantation in New Bern this June.
Laura & Dave came out to visit me on the OBX, and the weather was NOT forgiving. It wasn’t just cold and rainy, it was pouring! So much for beach portraits. Since Dave is in the Air Force we’d planned on some photos at the local airport but the weather didn’t cooperate. Luckily, we were able to pop into Barrier Island Aviation and use the Biplane and hanger for some indoor portraits. We got up (early) the next morning and braved some drizzling rain for some outdoor portraits in Downtown Manteo. I’m definitely going to miss Laura when she leaves, but I know she’ll have a blast exploring Europe with her love!
