Kate 'n Nate - Trash The Dress - Ocean City

It's rare in any business that you get to work with clients so awesome as these guys, and I was fortunate enough to shoot Kaitlin and Nate not once or twice, but three times! Like hitting the jackpot of awesomeness.. a photographers jackpot that is. We had a great engagement session on the beach, they got married in Philly, and now we've had some more wedding photo fun back at the beach were we started! Mad and I drove down in a bit of rain and stormy skies, then it got dark... real dark. But as my luck has it, the skies cleared a bit and we had some amazing light on the beach. There was even a corny medieval film happening that kept shooing us out of their shot (how could you not want these guys in the background?). The water was warmer than the air, so why not go for a swim? I jumped in the water with them and we had tons of fun getting a bit smashed up by the waves. We then finished up the shoot on Nate's boat, with a little tubing session. Very awesome!

Big shout out to Kelly and Pat, gracious hosts and all around amazing people for letting me take a hot shower afterwards to avoid hypothermia and cooking a killer dinner to warm up the body again! -Kelly I need one of those mini sandwiches right now!!!

loved those old pilings

end it with another favorite from the day

Kelly and Pat (and Cona) - Trash The Dress

After taking a scenic drive way down the parkway to Avalon, Spencer and I quickly backtracked to Ocean City where I was scheduled to meet Kelly and Pat in the first place until I plugged the complete wrong town into my GPS for an unknown reason (Avalon was beautiful and worth the mistaken extra drive anyway! haha, good thing I always show up early).  Anyway, Kelly and Pat were recently married and wanted to dispose of their wedding attire properly... by destroying it on the beach and in the ocean of course!  We had a blast with some monster surf from Hurricane Igor, and wandering around the beach in Ocean City.  Here's a few of my favorites from a fun session with a genuinely happy, fun and good looking couple!

one of the last, and definitely a favorite of the day

this shot went a little something like this...
me: "hey guys, i want you to head out into that break over there, and passionately kiss each other, and don't let go when you get smashed in the back of the head by the wave alright, hahaha."
kelly and pat simultaneously: "ok, no problem!"

these guys were CHAMPIONS!!!!  the sequences of these shots are hilarious as you can imagine.

we just got a little dirty... and check out cona in the back having a howl at the setting sun

a little risqué moment on the beach

and the famous jeff tisman ring shot, with a dirty twist. :)
