I had so much fun working with my brother Kevin and his lovely fiance’ Sam. Our family gets together once a year on the beaches of Corolla. Since there are so many of us it is the only time we get to see each other. When I found out that they were engaged I couldn’t wait to photograph their engagement session. We started out at the Whalehead club and then ended our session on the beach.

I am super excited for their wedding day, where I will be a guest so I can enjoy the moment! Much love and happiness to them!

About the couple:

Samantha is a 6th grade ELA teacher from Bergen County NJ
I’m a huge book lover. I read all day every day. Being healthy is a big plus, but a glass of vino is my weak spot.
Kevin, director 401k implementation from Marlton NJ
I’m a meathead, pit bull lover, wanna be chef, tattoo enthusiast and philosophical explorer.

We are best friends (gag lol). We love spending time together. We also have a passion of rescuing and saving underprivileged animals but specifically pitbulls. Kev and I love to cook together, play together and fight together. We met on match.com. Our first date was at The Landmark in Livingston NJ. Too many tequila shots. We have been together almost 3 years. Kev and I volunteer on the weekends at the Newark Humane Society in Newark NJ. We have our own rescue pit named Scout. We have so many inside jokes and moments but BOOP sums it up!

Kevin took me to a lake down the street from our apartment. He proceeded to tell me how when he was in NYC last week he didn’t go for work like he said (I immediately thought the worst, that he was cheating!!) Then he got down on one knee and said “because I was getting this”
We are having our wedding in December 2017. We are getting married at Saint Catherine of Sienna in Cedar Grove and then the reception is at The Grand Wilshire in West Orange. The colors are deep merlot for my ladies and the guys are going to wear grey. Because our wedding is in December. We are going with winter and more specifically a Christmas theme.

Kimberly and Bryant had a fabulous wedding at the Best of My Love rental and event home in Kill Devil Hills. Unfortunately, we had a rainy, windy day but Kim & Bryant didn’t let that stop them. I love when I am at a wedding and the couple works together to make things happen. I loved their spirit about the weather. You could just see how much they love each other.  The ceremony was absolutely gorgeous. They even brought sand in from the beach so their “toes” could be in the sand. After the ceremony we did portraits in front of the beautiful arch. After the group photo the guests made their way down to the pub style bar the next level down for cocktail hour and the photo booth. Shortly after cocktail hour the reception started. The room looked wonderful and it was filled with many wonderful friends and family. Hopefully we get to meet up later this week for some amazing romantic portraits in the sunshine!

Kim and Bryant used a lot of wonderful vendors.

Doug and I were so fortunate to work with Anna and Chris on their April wedding. They were such a fun couple- just look at the photos 🙂 We had a wonderful day capturing their day with video and photography. We started the day out with a few getting ready pictures, a first meet between the bride and groom then we were off to shoot romantic portraits and bridal party portraits on the beach. Since the portraits were early in the day we chose the Nags Head Fishing Pier. It gave us shade and added another element to our pictures. Thankfully the tide lined up perfectly with our time frame and the photos came out fantastic. As we were shooting the romantic portraits a heavy fog bank rolled in. At one point it was so thick that I was afraid we may not be able to continue. It all worked out and it really added some mystery and romanticism to the pictures. It was great to get the bulk amount of photos done before the wedding. After the ceremony we were able to get some beautiful romantic pictures on the docks as well as get the family photos done. This allowed everyone to get to all the fun festivities quicker than if the full photo session was after the ceremony. The reception was wonderful. There was great food, fun, and lots of dancing. The evening was beautiful!

I asked Anna to write a little bit about her wedding so we could share the details with you.

Anna wrote:
I was born in Russia  and came to the Outer Banks in America when I was.  Here comes OBX:). I spent 5 lovely years there. I had to move further in land (Currituck ) to get my nursing degree. I met Chris in Virginia beach in a night club. He came to Virginia beach for a vacation and I went there for my spring break. We both felt that there was something special between us. We wound up in a distance relationship for 8 months while I was in nursing school. Chris was patiently waited. On the day of my finals I packed everything in my car and moved to Fairfax, Virginia (2013). Chris proposed to me later that year on 11/12/13.
I chose turquoise for our wedding color. The reason for the color choice was that I love the ocean and turquoise. And I wanted to incorporate those colors into my wedding theme.
I made the entire wedding theme and items all by myself. I made the little books for the guests to sign. I also made the book with my childhood pictures. These are especially important to me. By the way, I got the idea to use childhood pictures from your wedding guide :))). Plus, knowing that nobody from my family could attend the wedding made it extremely important to make that book. Also, my lovely grandmother couldn’t make it to my wedding (she passed away several years ago), so I made sure that her picture was in the book and I kept her in my spirits all the way through the wedding.
Chris’ mother (Connie) embroidered the date and location on our table cloth. It was wonderful.
The moment that made me happiest was that Chris’ entire family was able to attend. Moments that made me sad, my mother couldn’t make it but she saw the entire ceremony through Skype.
I just want to tell everyone thanks for all their help with putting together the wedding. Great team work!
Also, a special thank you to our guardian photographer Michelle!:)

I love going to Ocracoke. There is just something so peaceful and tranquil about this little island. I love when people call us up and say “Do you go to Ocracoke?” I am always hoping and praying their date is not already booked! I was so excited when we booked Monica & Rob for their engagement session!

My Mom and I took the ferry over to Ocracoke rather early in the day. We went and had an AMAZING lunch at Dajio’s.  It is a lovely little place with amazing food and a wonderful ambiance. We trekked through town and stopped at all the little stores. Then I left Mom in town to shop and relax while I met Rob and Monica for their engagement session at the beach.

Monica & Rob were visiting from NJ. They were enjoying a weekend away in a gorgeous place. I tried to talk them into photos in town but they just loved the beach. They were happy having all of their photos there. It was a bit windy that day but, it was gorgeous!

We had an amazing session! Afterwards we relaxed in town eating dinner at the Jolly Roger Pub, listening to live music and watching the sunset. It was the perfect day!
