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…

Front Porch Cafe | Outer Banks Small Business

We have a problem, a really good one 🙂 We’re fairly simple when it comes to what makes us happy in life. We love going to the beach (free), collecting sea glass (free) and swimming in the ocean (free)…which inevitably leads to lots of salty kisses (free depending on the mood, Ellie will make you…

How We Moved To Our Dream Location | Outer Banks

Goal Setting with Powersheets | Life By The Sea

All The Wonderful Weddings of 2016! | Amanda Hedgepeth Photography

Summing it up — I have this feeling in my heart that’s hard to bring to life with words. Okay…best description I can come up with…it’s this warm, nostalgic feeling of the year that I traveled my heart out, adventuring from hotel to hotel and venue to venue with my husband, my BEST friend…shooting weddings…

Advice For Fighting With Your Mommy | Cammy Video Series

Okay so this is mostly ME talking because she wanted to sit in my lap and make faces at the camera — HAHA, but I love what she says at the end about Ellie! I love that these videos you can’t edit and can’t prep her to say anything because kids will be kids and…
