When Heather and Ed told me that they wanted to do their engagement session at Woodmont beach, I was excited! I had been there a long time ago and remembered layers of gray toned rocks and just the wide open water. I mean, what's not to love?! But then when they told me why
I loved it that much more. The place held a special place in their hearts. Heather grew up not far from there and as a kid on more days then not, would climb the rocks and play along the water. Summers were spent playing at the shoreline and gazing out across the water at the boats. This little beach really is a kid's dream with so much to explore.
As we walked around Heather would point out the "Potato Rock" and the perfectly named "Umbrella Tree." Now, I thought these were cute little names straight from a child's imagination, but no. No, these are the actual
names of these landmarks. And just to prove she hadn't made the names up, a little package arrived at my door a few days ago from Heather. It was a little history book with postcard photos from decades ago of the very beach and these silly named landmarks. It was so cool to step back in time and see what the beach looked like way back then.
Through the storytelling and laughter, I had so much fun spending time with these two... reminiscing about childhood adventures and watching the storm clouds roll in. Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session and some then and now photos! :)
