Five Things Outer Banks Brides Should Know | Outer Banks Weddings

Since before moving to this incredible sandbar, I started shooting weddings down here DREAMING of the day I could drive┬áhome down the road at the end of the nights. Now having Mike (my husband!) be my second shooter and make that drive with me, I can assure you that after stopping for 711 nachos and…

Why Family Formals Lists Are Crucial | Weddings

Thankfully, a lot of photographers are doing this now…but it’s something I learned about 3-4 years ago the hard way! I kept asking myself on a wedding day…where are we seeing a disconnect in the joyful, carefree mood of the day? Where do we start feeling stress even with the most lighthearted and laid back…

Niki + David | Hatteras Outer Banks Wedding

When it comes to this pair, I have so much to say but I will have to make sure I give you the best of it. I could write a blog paragraphs long but let’s just sum it up this way: they are golden, they are genuine, they put others first, they are team, they…

Mary Claire + Ari | Tuckahoe Woman’s Club Richmond Wedding

Mary Claire and Ari light up the people around them. YES, they light up each other, but you absolutely can’t help looking at them and not thinking loudly inside “gosh I am SO so happy for them!” Mike and I said it so many times that day and we’ll say it again…they’re the real deal….

Stephanie + Chris | Ford’s Colony Williamsburg Wedding

Stephanie. Chris. Where could I ever begin!? Chris, you cried when this woman walked down the aisle and you had already had a first look with her prior to the ceremony, and it’s because that woman is everything to you, I love how clear that is to all of the people who get the joy…

Jenna + Andrew | Pirates Cove Manteo Outer Banks Wedding

Jenna and Andrew…how can we even deal. We adored every part of this sunny, Manteo wedding day starring two people who make the world so much sweeter having found one another.

Jessica + Jason | Intimate Nags Head Wedding

This summer I got an email from Jessica and I was all in – they wanted a sweet, intimate wedding on the salty aired Outer Banks and they needed someone to capture it for them. If there’s one thing I love, it’s diversity in what we shoot so we’ll be at a 250 person wedding…

Vicky + Matt | Manteo Waterfront + Budleigh Wedding

It’s an absolute privilege to call Vicky and Matt clients of ours and you will see a joy that brings YOU joy when you look through the cheerful story of their Manteo wedding day! I don’t even know how we beat the heat and the crazy weather that we all experienced earlier that week but…

Kirby + Justin | Kitty Hawk Pier Wedding

We watched the weather for a week and it was NOT looking good. Not just a prediction for rain, but the kind that keeps the skies grainy and dark the whole day through. I was prepared and knew I could handle it but of course I’m always hoping for something different when it comes to…

Sarah + Jay | Nags Head Vow Renewal

No way you guys. This is TOO GOOD — you have to prepare to see some of the sweetest images of a couple who has been married 15 years with the two of the most adorable little girls on the planet. The way they look at their parents, the fact that they got to be…
