WOW! What a crazy past few months it has been! From traveling to the beach lots, starting wedding season back up, several photoshoots, and other life things, we have been SO busy! We may be a little behind on blogs posts, so be prepared for many post coming your way!


Today we are sharing one of our favorite engagement shoots recently that for sure set the bar HIGH! Keep reading to find out why.


Claire and Michael are the SWEETEST couple and we are so happy they chose to be a #dylancookcouple. We first met with Claire and her mom at Starbucks what feels like forever ago. She had gone dress shopping before meeting with us so it was a jam packed day for her. We were so thankful she was able to meet with us though. For almost TWO HOURS we talked about how she pictures her big day, what exactly she was looking for, and getting our advice about wedding photographers and other vendors. We love when clients ask for our suggestions and input!


Fast forward to June, we were finally able to start their wedding journey with their engagement photos down in Topsail Island, NC. Me and Dylan will never deny 1. A trip to the beach 2. An engagement shoot on the beach and 3. A ride on a boat. That right, Claire and Michael took us on their boat to an island to take pictures and to have a good time. We jokingly said that boat rides are now a requirement for all engagements shoots!


It was such a fun day getting to not only take photos of Michael and Claire (that turned out AMAZING) but get to know the two of them better and meet their family! We did get some puppy loving too!


We won't keep you reading too much longer so scroll down to see these DREAMY engagement photos. We can't wait for April to celebrate Claire and Michael again!
