About the shoot: This styled shoot had two themes that we were aiming to achieve, dramatic nighttime photos and military personnel. Both were accomplished. It was exceptionally dark during this shoot, allowing for the plantation lights and patio lights to glow.
About the couple: Ernie and Erin are a real couple, not models, who were married 2 1/2 weeks before this shoot took place. Both of them are Marines based at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock, NC.
About the venue: Palo Alto Plantation is a historic plantation home built between 1836-1840. The current owners bought it a few years ago and refurbished the entire property with the intention of turning it into an event venue.
