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.

It was the perfect day. We started our day with a first look of the bride and groom on the docks by the salon. Stephen got to see his stunning bride before the big day went into full swing. As I took pictures of the bride and groom with their bridal party and some romantic pictures on the dock Doug was able to get some beautiful images of the reception and ceremony site. It is always good to make sure that everything is already set up before your photographer arrives. This is so important if you want pictures of the room as well as the tables and details. It is also important that the ceremony site be set up  before guests start arriving if want to make sure your photographer gets this important shot.
After the portraits the bridal party freshens up while we headed to the ceremony site to get pictures of the guests arriving. After the ceremony we headed to the beach for family photos and a few more bridal party and romantic shots while Doug photographed the cocktail hour details and guests. After our session on the beach we walked over to a little dock to the south of the Sanderling where our couple and bridal party boarded a boat to get to the gazebo on the sound side. It allowed the bride and groom to enter from the sound side into the pavilion for their introductions.The rest of the night was topped off with great food, fun and a lot of dancing!

Our bride shared some information about their special day. See what she wrote.

I am from Pittsburgh, PA and Stephen is from Topsail Island, NC.  We are currently living in Alexandria, Va.
Stephen works for PEPCO Electrical Company and I work for the federal government.
We met at a local establishment in San Francisco where we used to live.  Stephen asked me to marry him on top of the Marin Headlands overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge near where we lived.  It is a beautiful view of the city.
We chose the Outer Banks for our wedding because Stephen is from North Carolina and loves the beach and I visited the Outer Banks a few years back and really enjoyed it there.
Our colors were tan, violet, mint, and yellow. I got my dress at a small dress boutique in Walnut Creek, CA.
My favorite part of the day was seeing how happy my parents were and spending time with friends and family.
It was easy to plan a destination wedding.  The hardest part was the hotel and sleep accommodations for guests.  Destination weddings can get very pricey and you typically need to book rooms in advance which most people don’t like to do.
The best part of a destination wedding is that I got to be at the beach for an entire week.  The wedding goes by so fast, so it was great to get a beach house with my bridesmaids and spend time with them before and after the wedding.
I also took pictures with the bridal party and had a “first look” before the wedding which I liked because it helped move things along between the wedding and reception.  Our dinner service was served early which I also think is important because it allows more time for dancing.  It was also very convenient that you could just walk from the ceremony to the reception.
I wouldn’t have changed anything about our wedding day.
Dana & Stephen

AJ & Gina were married in Kill Devil Hills at a beautiful beach ceremony. This couple was so fun to work with and so was their bridal party. We were able to get in a lot of fun shots with the bridal party and a lot of beautiful romantic portraits in before we headed to the reception. AJ & Gina will hold a more formal reception back in their home town in Pennsylvania. It was awesome to work with such a great group! Thank you for making us a part of your day!

Kimberly and Bryant had a fabulous wedding at the Best of My Love rental and event home in Kill Devil Hills. Unfortunately, we had a rainy, windy day but Kim & Bryant didn’t let that stop them. I love when I am at a wedding and the couple works together to make things happen. I loved their spirit about the weather. You could just see how much they love each other.  The ceremony was absolutely gorgeous. They even brought sand in from the beach so their “toes” could be in the sand. After the ceremony we did portraits in front of the beautiful arch. After the group photo the guests made their way down to the pub style bar the next level down for cocktail hour and the photo booth. Shortly after cocktail hour the reception started. The room looked wonderful and it was filled with many wonderful friends and family. Hopefully we get to meet up later this week for some amazing romantic portraits in the sunshine!

Kim and Bryant used a lot of wonderful vendors.
