On Saturday morning I received a call from a friend wondering if I was available Sunday afternoon to photograph an Elopement. When she started to explain Matt & Stacy’s story, I quickly realized this was a particularly special Elopement. Matt & Stacy had been living in Thailand for a while when Stacy started having pains in her back. They went to the hospital and the doctors found a potentially cancerous mass in Stacy’s back and she would need to begin chemotherapy treatment immediately. As a result, Matt & Stacy packed their bags and moved back to the US for treatment. They decided to elope in a remote location on Pea Island before Stacy began her treatment. Needless to say I was extremely honored to document their elopement and photograph them before they began their next chapter, which will undoubtedly be a long, challenging road ahead. After spending the afternoon with them, I am very confident they will stick together and Matt will be an incredibly supportive husband. Best of luck to you guys!
