When I met Jillian and Nick, we instantly connected and they were an absolute DREAM to photograph! I cannot wait to capture their wedding. One of the first things I noticed about Jillian besides her sweet personality, was her BEAUTIFUL sleeve! I love all of the NC detail, the color and the way it looks in the photos. 

  They met almost two years ago and began dating shortly after. Nick proposed this past July at Kill Devil Hills in the Outer Banks! Ahh! They went out to eat and then went for a walk on the beach afterwards so that they could look for seashells. It was a really nice evening and there was even a huge school of dolphins really close to shore! (Y'all my heart is fluttering!) Jillian bent down looking at a big pile of collected shells when Nick came up behind her and said he found one. When she turned around he was on one knee!  


  The ring is stunning! Nick and his PopPop were very close. He passed away last year, shortly after he and Jillian met. He adored Nick and it is so special that the ring was bought in Wilmington at Perry's Emporium where Nick's PopPop used to work. Nick took his mom and grandma with him to pick out the ring and the staff at Perry's was thrilled to help him with the process. He picked it out all on his own and knew it was the one because "it looked like her". (gahhh! heart eyes) 


  Jillian and Nick enjoy simply being together whether it be cuddling on the couch in PJ's watching a movie or going on a romantic date! They say their "I do's in November 2019!

Enjoy a few of my favorite selections for this engagement session!
