EE + EE = EEEE or LOVE! No, it’s not a complicated math problem, but a lot of “E” initials! Eric Evans, also known as EE or Double, now has the beautiful wife Erin Evans — you can imagine the new nicknames, Quad, E to the 4th, etc.
Where to start with this amazing couple? I have known Erin for about 10-12 years, she is the sister of my best friend’s husband. (Did you follow me there?) I could honestly say I’ve watched Erin grow up even though we’re only a couple years apart. In that time though I’ve never seen her this happy. Only a short time after meeting Eric upon arriving in Hilton Head, I knew everything was as it should be with this special pair. They complimented each other in a very unique way. They just seemed to be the last two pieces to a big puzzle — it was really amazing. It was also incredible to see the love that Erin has for Eric. They just “get” each other. It’s great!! (I must add a side note here that it’s late, and I’m running on little sleep tonight, yet it seems to make me write more, and I must be feeling mushy too because I’m almost tearing up as I go!! )
I should insert here that Erin and Eric are also from Kentucky, they currently live in Louisville, but they planned an intimate destination wedding with their closest relatives and family in Hilton Head. They both grew up vacationing there, and they both share a love of golf too, so it naturally seemed like the perfect location. It seemed from the beginning without question that Erin wanted me to make the trek out there with them to document everything. It also gave me to opportunity to spend time with my BFF.It was such a great time getting to shoot in this scenic area. They were married at the point on the golf course by Harbor Town at Sea Pines Resort. Again, it doesn’t get much more perfect for this couple! The weather was great, and the ceremony was beautiful. I’m thrilled with all of the pictures we were able to capture of the wedding party and of Erin and Eric. From our wonderful accommodations, to the golf course, the lighthouse, the trolley, the reception at the house, and the after shoot on the beach — it was a blast!! I can’t stress enough that the more you are at ease with the photographer, the better the pictures — they completely put their trust in me, and I was able to deliver some fun images for them. (Another side note — able to deliver after being almost sick Saturday morning with nerves because of personally knowing them for a very long time!That’s right — I do still get nervous! Anyone in their right mind would – it’s only one of the most important days of your life! ) As soon as I got my camera in my hands though I settled into my groove.
We were even able to do an image release party of sorts all the way in Kentucky so that they could view the images the way we do here for our local brides. It was a lot of fun, and they are very pleased. Thanks again Dinah (Erin’s mom) for the baked spaghetti and fabulous peanut butter pie!! Thanks for taking me along for the journey guys!! Congratulations!!! xoxox
