As Outer Banks wedding photographers, we get so excited when someone says they want to trash the dress. Not many brides do it. When they do, we enjoy every minute of it! We will come to your location. If you don’t have a location, there are plenty to choose from.

Please check out our last blog post on this super awesome and super fun couple. They had their wedding and their trash the dress session all in one week. Don’t be afraid to talk to your photographer about bringing some key elements of who you are with you to your session. That could be a family portrait, wedding, engagement or trash the dress session. It can make for a lot of fun during and after your session.

We loved working with this couple. They had such a wonderful day! They also had a great planner to help keep everything on track.
Katie and Hunter chose to use us for most of the day with two photographers. This allowed us enough time to capture details, getting ready, ceremony, portraits and their special events without rushing through the day.
We started the day out with the pre-ceremony shots. I was able to work with the bride, her attendants and family. We were not only able to capture getting ready photos but we were also able to get some of the family portraits done before the ceremony as well as bridal party portraits. I was able to capture Katie with her family and bridesmaids while Doug worked with the groom, his family and groomsmen. This allowed the bride and groom to get to their reception faster after the ceremony, combined family portraits and romantic portraits were finished.

Katie and Hunter got to say their I do’s in front of their closest friends and family on the beaches of the Outer Banks in Corolla, NC. The ceremony was beautiful! They decided to keep their ceremony simple and reserve a few minutes afterward for themselves to spend time together in their first moments as husband and wife. A table with congratulatory drinks was set aside for them in the gazebo with champagne to celebrate. Shortly after their time together we were able to gather everyone for a group photo and then finish up with the rest of the family and bridal party portraits, so that we could focus on the couples intimate session.

Katie & Hunter were so fun to photograph. You can see the love they have for each other in every photo. They were so expressive. I was so happy to know that we would be spending another day together shooting a trash-the-dress session. I will have those photos in another post.

While I was working hard on the beach, Doug was working hard to capture the details of the reception and the cocktail hour. He was able to keep himself out of site and capture the guests making memories and the details. This allows the guests to enjoy themselves without feeling like they have to perform for the camera.
The bride and groom joined everyone for cocktail hour for a little bit before the reception started.

The bride and groom focused on their time with family during the reception. They were able to keep their reception moving at a good pace with the help of the day of planner Heather from Premiere Events.
The reception was started off with dinner. While everyone was finishing up dinner the toasts began. I always love this approach as everyone is still in their seats and you don’t have to disrupt the party to get the events started. Shortly after the toasts the desert bar and cake cutting took place. It is so fun when the couple is playful! The final events of the evening ended with the dances and then to an open dance floor. Each dance was so emotional and thoughtful. It was truly a memory filled day.

Don’t forget to check out our trash-the-dress session with this lovely couple in our next blog post. Coming soon!

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.
