Romance at Wingaersheek Beach

Love stories are often woven with a unique blend of personalities, interests, and chance encounters. Meet Ashley and Nick, a couple whose journey from strangers on a dating app to soulmates is nothing short of a modern-day rom com. Hailing from different states, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, these two lovebirds found each other on OkCupid, proving that love knows no borders.

A Match Made in Football Heaven: It all began with a simple message and a witty pickup line. Nick noticed Ashley’s love for football and the legendary player, Gronk. He proceeded to use a line about her love for both making her absolute perfection in his eyes, and that made a big impact on Ashley! The pickup line lead to a date and the date lead to love. Seven years later I got to capture their love at Wingaersheek Beach, a dreamy backdrop for romance located in Gloucester, Massachusetts on a perfect summer evening.

Ashley, a self proclaimed hippie, adores the outdoors and has a special love for the ocean, making it the perfect place for her and Nick’s engagement session. With their toes in the sand and the ocean breeze in their hair, the couple embraced the ethereal beauty of the beach, allowing their love to shine through. And boy did it ever! From cuddling on the dunes to strolling hand in hand along the shore and stealing kisses, these two had an undeniable connection. Their laughter echoed against the crashing waves, and their genuine affection exuded an aura of warmth and tranquility. Being in the presence of such a great couple (and one who made my job so incredibly easy!) was an absolute pleasure and I am so beyond excited to capture their upcoming wedding!
