Stephanie + Kyle | Currituck Club Wedding

The week before the wedding was calling for an entire week FILLED with rain, including Saturday. We know we can pull it off if it rains (like the wedding we shot the day before this one!) but we just HOPE it doesn’t, especially when the ceremony is at the golf course on the Currituck Club!…

Stephanie + Kyle | Corolla Engagements

In Corolla on literally THE windiest day we’ve had in so long, I got to meet Stephanie & Kyle for their engagement session and we totally braved it together! This part of the island is really narrow and the beach AND sound were both like wind tunnels whipping us around and we totally made the…

Alicia + Levi | Intimate Corolla Wedding

I showed up and Alicia…you greeted me with absolute sunshine. No wonder you are so adored, I can’t even believe I have had the luck of connecting with such perfect brides and grooms when it comes to these intimate Outer Banks weddings with only close friends and family by the sea for a joyful ceremony and celebration….

Lauren + Nick | Nags Head Engagements

I know both of these wonderful humans from back home…one because he’s my cousin’s cousin and the other because she grew up on the same street as me 🙂 And together? They are SO incredibly sweet…the one thing I kept noticing and totally loving was how they kind of smile the same which is what…

Kirstyn + Fam | Avon Hatteras Family Session

This girl Kirstyn and I…we go WAY back 🙂 And Andy. That’s because I was fortunate enough to be their wedding photographer when I was pregnant with Ellie and I will never forget falling in love with these people. They are charismatic, hilarious and full of LIFE. They’ve been through so much together and now…

Ellen + Fam | Corolla Family Session

I loved this SO MUCH and Ellen’s family happened to visit on a week where the forecast originally may as well said “HAHA good luck photographers!” LOL! I mean – it was rain every-single-day. And then…it wasn’t. WHEW! When I pulled up, it was sprinkling and I thought, okay, your camera can get a LITTLE…

Jaclyn + Daniel | Corolla Wedding

This sweet pair…you KNOW it’s going to be good when the groom has the most endearing tears in his eyes as his almost-wife is heading down the aisle! WHEW! We were losing it, Mike and I kept looking at each other saying “yay! He’s crying!” LOL! Because we love that. We know you don’t need…

Nora + Family | Corolla Family Session

These three!!! The biggest feeling I walked away with from this session was, gosh…these two are SO happy to parents!! I always feel like it’s such an honor to work with loving parents. In seven years I’ve seen and experienced a lot and there is nothing like two people are so happy that they’ve started…

Ashley + Ryan | Carova Outer Banks Engagements

I’ve lived here almost four years and I had not yet been to Carova…UNTIL NOW 🙂 We met and I jumped in the jeep so excited about being able to finally get out on the beach over here where everyone just loves it, and I see what the hype is about. Carova is beautiful. The…

More Than He Bargained For | Life By The Sea

Mike Hedgepeth wasn’t ever a ladies man. Like really. He didn’t have many girlfriends and when we started dating, that became his first serious relationship, EVER! I however had a lot more experience in the long term relationship department and I thought to myself for the first couple of months – is this guy real?…
