Wilmington Styled Engagement Shoot: Melissa + Shawn

You’re going to love this Wilmington styled engagement shoot! When Wilmington engagement photographer Eric Boneske met Melissa and Shawn, he knew their engagement shoot had to be something special. Eric’s fantastic brainstorming session led him to the great idea of photographing the couple on an uninhabited island. They used a boat to shuttle back and forth from the island, carrying all of the amazing details they’d need for the session. The planned shoot was also going to include aerial shots of Melissa and Shawn along the island’s landscape. Wow! What follows in photographs is an amazing story told by their photographer Eric Boneske.

Eric tells us, “A luxury ocean liner goes down just off the coast of an uninhabited island, and only two make it to shore alive… Rugged-meets-refined was our starting point for this styled engagement session.” Find out more after the jump…
