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.

Megan and Thomas had the perfect wedding day. The ceremony and reception was held at the Currituck Club. The ceremony took place on the sound and the reception was outside in the outdoor reception area.  There were so many family and friends and vendors that made their day wonderful!

We had the honor and privilege to work with some of the Navy’s finest at a beautiful Outer Banks Christmas wedding. The day started out with Michelle photographing the bride getting ready and getting some pre-ceremony portraits. Doug worked with getting some fun pre-ceremony portraits with the groomsmen. This took a lot stress off the portrait session after the ceremony. As we finished up with the couple we were able to have enough time to get detail shots and photos of the guests arriving to the ceremony. Since we had a rainy and very windy day all the portraits were shot inside except for a few on the covered deck of the pool house (in between the rain) during the getting ready session. Shooting inside didn’t matter because The Black Stallion event home is GORGEOUS!
The ceremony took place in front of the fireplace. This area is so beautiful that we shot the family portraits and bridal party portraits here too. Since this was a Christmas wedding we were able to get some romantic images of the bride and groom in front of the Christmas tree.

The reception started with some great food from Basnight’s Lone Cedar. They provided a delicious buffet. After the traditional events George Wainwright with Coastal DJ and Video kept the guests dancing non-stop. Friends and family were not afraid to celebrate and have a good time.
I love that the bride and groom were so carefree on the wedding day.  They had a wonderful day filled with fun, family, friends and lots of love. Every wedding day should be this wonderful!

From the Bride
Bride: Sara
Groom: Carson
What do we do: Sara and Carson are both officers in the Navy. Carson is a Naval Flight officer and flies the P-8A and Sara is a helicopter pilot and flies the MH60R.

A little about us:
Carson and Sara were both raised in the South. Carson is from Calhoun, Georgia, a small town north of Atlanta. He is one of six kids. Carson enlisted in the Navy after high school and a few years later picked up an officer package and was accepted to the Naval Academy where he met Sara.
Sara was raised in Clearwater, Florida. She has one sister. She attended the Naval Academy to pursue college sailing. Carson and Sara met sophomore year at the Academy in Ethics class and have been together ever since. After graduation they moved to Pensacola, FL together for flight training. Two years later they moved to Jacksonville,FL to continue training. They reside in Jacksonville today.

Engagement story:
Carson and Sara were on scalloping in the Gulf of Mexico, a tradition that they do with Sara’s family each summer. After a long day of snorkeling and diving for scallops. Carson was waiting under the water with a sign that said Sara, will you marry me? She said yes and the planning began.

Wedding location:
We chose the outer banks because we had visited before for Christmas and loved it. After we saw the Black Stallion, we knew it would be the perfect place for a Christmas wedding. The Christmas time worked well with our schedules but we also thought it was a good opportunity to bring both families together for the holidays.

Wedding theme/decor:
With the wedding three days before Christmas, it was a Christmas theme. Colors were gold holiday decor. Flowers were white with greenery, with red and gold berries. We also se poinsettias to decorate.

Dress:
My dress was by Waters Too. I wanted something that was not strapless.

Favorite part of the day:
The First Dance was the favorite part of the day. We took dancing lessons. My uncle played our first dance on the guitar and sang the song. It turned out perfect and was a really special moment.

Tips to make the wedding easier:
I would have worried less about small details. Nobody will notice them anyway.

About my day:
I spent all morning getting ready with my bridesmaids and then got dressed and went to the wedding. It was a great day.

Extra:
It was the perfect wedding and everything we dreamed of. It did rain and things didn’t go as planned but we were flexible and went with it and it turned out perfect. We are so happy and so excited for whats in store for our future. We spend a lot of time apart from each other, both deploying and away for the Navy. So we really value our time together and time with our families. Being able to bring our families together for an entire week to celebrate our wedding as well as Christmas was so much fun and everything we wanted and more. The event homes at the outer banks are such a great idea. It took the rush of the wedding and only getting to spend time with people who travel so far away to attend.

Rebecca & Brian had an amazing day! It had rained all week but the weather finally broke for their wedding day. We battled some wind but sunshine is all you need. We met this wonderful couple at another wedding that we photographed. What a wonderful couple and wonderful family! It was a pleasure to be a part of their day.
