Every summer Anna and JM travel to Holden Beach, North Carolina with their families. They both enjoy spending time together in the sun, and after they got married, they moved closer to the water. But more importantly, JM proposed on the dock overlooking the setting sun on the James River.
JM and Anna are long time friends of photographer Lauren Simmons Photography. Anna was Lauren’s roommate in college, and she photographed their proposal by the water. Now that they’ve been married for two years, they wanted to celebrate at the beach since it is a special place that has meant a lot to them over the years.
From the photographer:
I asked them at their session what’s been surprisingly difficult, and they said, “When Anna was going through her dietetic internship and JM with a full-time job and college.” Then I asked what’s been surprisingly rewarding? They replied, “Being able to do all that hard stuff together.” At the end of the day, we get to come home and spend time with each other.” The water has always been something that they’ve been married for two years, they’ve been through thick and thin. Though it’s not easy, they’d rather ride the waves of life together.
Thanks for stopping by!
