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!

The day started off with heavy rain showers. Doug headed to the guys house in the Tuckahoe neighborhood of Duck,NC. I met up with the bride and bridesmaids at the event home in Kill Devil Hills. Despite the wet weather everyones spirits were high.

As we neared the end of photographing everyone getting ready the rain stopped. We were able to get the ceremony in before it started to drizzle again. We also got some family portraits in on the beach before the rain got heavy again. We took some pictures in the cabana with the bridal party and as we finished them up we got another break in the rain. We were able to sneak out to the beach again to get some gorgeous romantic photos with Sydney and Stefan.

The rain stopped at the beginning of the reception and the planners were able to set up the tables and chairs for the reception. The rest of the night was perfect and beautiful. The couple ended the night jumping in the pool with their bridal party!

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.
