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 my sweet couples wedding days…and by some miracle we had a BIG turn in luck and the day was filled with the warmest and most beautiful sunshine the Outer Banks could offer on this joyful June Saturday and if anyone deserves it, it’s these two!

Justin and Kirby were surrounded by people who love and support and adore them and it made the day even more amazing for us to shoot, we are ALWAYS excited to show up for every wedding but you never really know what chaos can be waiting for you because wedding days even when organized can go pretty crazy. Instead, we had bridesmaids stepping in to help at any given moment, our incredible intern checking the weather for us to see what it was calling for corresponding with our itinerary and one heck of a perfect pier wedding day! Thank you for the absolute privilege of being your wedding photographers, Justin & Kirby! We are SO grateful for you!!
