Anh and Brian decided to have an intimate ceremony on the Outer Banks for their closest family and friends. They were already officially married in Anh’s home country and now it was time to tie the knot with Brian’s family. The ceremony was held on the sound side at Basnight’s Lone Cedar Restaurant in a beautiful, tucked away little spot. After the ceremony friends and family enjoyed h’ordeurves  and cocktails while we went to the beach and  Jennette’s pier for some romantic portraits of this adorable couple.

We headed back for the formal part of the reception and dinner. During dinner I was able to grab Brian and Anh for a few more pictures in the gorgeous sunset. The evening was wonderful.

We are so excited to be working with Bo & Kayla for their beautiful spring wedding in Ocracoke in 2017. We had a great time working with them on their engagement photos and are so excited for the wedding day! The engagement session day was perfect! Such a gorgeous day especially after the week was surrounded with days of bad weather.  I had no idea what I was in store for that day. I was nervous and excited. I met Bo at the dock at Oregon Inlet. We loaded up my equipment and he took me on a beautiful boat ride to a private island where we met up with Kayla, her mom, and the cutest and sweetest dog ever, Sprig! Getting to the island was exciting. It was beautiful. I couldn’t wait to go explore.

I loved how well Bo and Kayla connected on camera and off. They are such an amazing couple.  They were so fun to work with and are such great people! I am so honored to be a part of their wedding day! We were able to use many parts of the island for the session and it was GORGEOUS! I asked Kayla and Bo a little bit about themselves, their engagement, and their upcoming wedding. Look below for their big day plans!

 

Kayla is from Nags Head and works as a senior office support specialist for the Adult Services Unit at Dare County Social Services.
Kayla grew up around the water. It was beach days as a child and then when she turned fifteen she began in-shore charter fishing with her father and did that for eight years. Kayla attended East Carolina University where she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Health Administration and a minor in Business Administration. Kayla enjoys anything that involves being on a boat or sitting by a pool.

Bo is from Manteo and works in construction for HOM Land Development. Bo also grew up around the water. He can drive a boat better than he can drive a vehicle. Bo takes fishing and hunting very seriously and it is a large part of his life. In the summer he is always chasing a fish. Be it drum, cobia or flounder–nothing is safe. In the winter he is always chasing a duck. He takes his yearly trip to Canada in the fall and then gears up for a long winter of finding anything that flies. He is open for any excuse to be outdoors and an even better excuse to skip out on work.
Kayla and Bo love spending time together. They don’t take life too seriously and they love to have fun!

 

A mutual friend introduced Kayla and Bo in Greenville, North Carolina while in college. They dated on and off for about two years in college before finally going their separate ways. In 2012 they found their way back to each other. Four years later Bo proposed!
Kayla and Bo got engaged on March 11, 2016. Bo bought the ring and proposed all the same day. He was a nervous wreck after purchasing the ring. He had a plan to take Kayla to a sand island and popping the question there but his nerves got the best of him. Kayla came home early that Friday afternoon and he was waiting on one knee when she walked in the door. The funny thing is that he did not even think about changing out of his work clothes. So Bo proposed to Kayla in a dirty white tee shirt, green shorts and camouflage ankle boots. It makes the proposal story that much better!

Bo & Kayla’s wedding will take place in the spring in Ocracoke. Kayla and Bo have both  always loved Ocracoke and it is such a unique place so it was obvious that that is where we wanted to have it. They decided on Berkley Manor as the venue because it has a classic feel that they want for the wedding. It is an old duck hunting lodge that has been renovated. The colors for our wedding are going to be gold and blush. Kayla has always loved that color combination. The decor is going to be simple and classic because they do not want anything too over the top. The ceremony will be on a dock on Silver Lake and the reception will take place under tent in the yard of Berkley Manor.  Kayla loves the classic look of baby’s breath for the flowers and the fact that it is not a formal looking flower. As for the bridal party? We know they sweet dog Sprig will be the pet of honor in the wedding.

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!

We were a part of Ashlyn and Nicks intimate wedding off of the Chicahauk beach access in Southern Shores, NC. We had a wonderful morning wedding. We were so thankful for the clouds that kept the ceremony and portraits nice and cool. We were also thankful that the rain had past. The sun did come out towards the end and it wound up being a gorgeous day!

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.
