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.

Eric and Ashley had a beautiful summer wedding. They were married on the beaches of Kitty Hawk next to the Kitty Hawk Pierhouse- Hilton Garden Inn. Doug and I make an awesome photography team! Doug was able to work with the groom and his men while I was able to have fun photographing the ladies. Most of the portraits were done before the ceremony allowing the couple to get to the party after just a few more romantic pictures. Doug covered cocktail hour while I spent more time with Eric and Ashley. Everyone was so fun to work with from the couple to their friends and family and all the vendors.

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 able to work with Samantha for her bridal portrait session last night. The weather was looking a bit grim but we changed locations to avoid the rain and wound up with an amazing sky instead! Here is a sneak peek of Samantha’s session. In the end the clouds moved in. It only made the session more beautiful!

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.
