Every time we’re shooting on the beach, we never know what to expect from the weather. Sometimes we get a beautiful sunset. Sometimes there’s rain. Nick and Sarylee’s Alabama Point engagement photos were no different… and these two had zero complaints!
On one side of us, there was a hazy sunset. The waves were as choppy as we’ve ever seen them as they crashed in the jetties.
However, behind us was an entirely different view. The clouds were dark and ominous as a classic Gulf coast storm made it’s way around us.
Nick and Sarylee’s story is different than most. They’re both in the military and she’s currently stationed in Japan but was back in the states for just a few days! So, time was precious and rescheduling wasn’t really an option for this rain-filled week.
Nick’s sister originally reached out to help coordinate the whole shoot (we love thoughtful siblings like her)! These two not only got engaged in the same week but also got MARRIED the day before the shoot and wanted photos to capture this time in their lives.
When we first arrived in Orange Beach to take Nick and Sarylee’s Alabama Point engagement photos, we did our typical storm watch to see what it was going to do. No matter what, we all were willing to get out there in the rain and have a BLAST – celebrating these two and their love.
Thankfully, the storm passed and we only got a few sprinkles on our way back down the boardwalk.
After the shoot, these two met up with BOTH of their families at Cobalt Restaurant – just across the parking lot – and enjoyed an amazing dinner!
Sometimes, even the most unpredictable weather can create the most beautiful results – even ending in a sunset – and we couldn’t love these more!
… I’m sure there’s a life lesson about patience in there somewhere!
Congrats, Nick and Sarylee!
XOXO, The Johnsons
