Amanda & Nick were married in April on Hatteras Island on a beautiful stretch of beach in front of Jekyll’s Hideout. The house is amazing with huge decks, gorgeous views, a lot of room and a nice yard for a reception. It was a close call with the weather that week but everything turned out perfectly. We always tell our couples not to worry about the weather until just a couple of days before the wedding. The weather is always changing on the Outer Banks.
We started the day with Doug photographing the groomsmen getting ready and some portraits and I photographed the bride getting ready and a portrait session with the bridesmaids. We had a wonderful first look before the ceremony to help take away some of the stress from the busy day. After the ceremony we had a wonderful portrait session. It is always important to make your photographer a family portrait list. Not everyone’s family dynamics are the same. This will help everything to move quickly. Talk to your photographer to find out how to best organize your list. Also, be careful how many pictures you ask for. Portraits take time. Make sure you allot your time wisely. A long list can make for a long day.
After a super romantic portrait session with the couple the bride bustled her dress on the beach and the bridal party was announced into the reception. It was a wonderful reception filled with romantic dances, toasts, fun, family and friends. I am so glad and blessed to be an Outer Banks Photographer. I get to meet so many wonderful couples and their amazing friends!
Enjoy the photos!
