I met Zach & Alyssa back when I shot Jeremy & Ana's wedding in September of last year, and was thrilled to pieces when Alyssa said she wanted to do an anniversary shoot + trash the dress session. After several months of trying to get something scheduled it FINALLY happened in July in the cute, historic town of Cameron, NC.
Our first location was the fantastic Dewberry Deli. An old-time ice-cream parlor and antique shop in one!
(I love that they ordered a sundae to share! :)
After ice cream, we wandered up to the second floor of the building, to the antique shop.
"M" is for their last name, Murray. :)
Alyssa is SO gorgeous, she makes all of these photos amazing!
She made her pretty hair piece!
Of course there were all kinds of cool little knick-knacks and things to look at.
Zach is in the military, so Alyssa thought it would be fun to grab some cute, patriotic shots. (And I think they rocked it!)
After we shot for a while at Dewberry Deli, we wandered to a few other places in the historic downtown area.
We happened upon this great tea-room place, and the ladies who worked there were so sweet and offered free lemonade for Zach & Alyssa to enjoy during the shoot (which was the perfect beverage on a warm July afternoon)!
THIS cracked me up.
Of course, Zach is hilarious, and Alyssa wasn't able to keep it up for too long... :)
Our last historic location was this porch. Probably my favorite. The lighting and colors were just so great!
Do they know how to wooork it or what?!
I hope you enjoyed all of these super fun photos. It was such a fun shoot! Stay tuned for Part Two which will cover the photos we took at a nearby park/lake....where Alyssa trashed the dress. :)
