Corolla Wedding | The Whalehead Club

Sugarbutts in Love

I had so much fun with these two last night while photographing their “Day After” session at The Whalehead Club.  She wore the sassiest sparkly heels while we were at the Whalehead Club and changed into the cutest turquoise cowgirl boots at the beach.  Carrie’s  dress had a big hoop underneath it and lots and lots of layers on top, it was perfect for spinning!

Not only was I lucky enough to photograph a gorgeous couple who is so in love but the location they chose and the evening was absolutely perfect!   We had amazing clouds, a gorgeous sunset and it was cool enough no one was uncomfortable!

This beautiful beach is right across the street from the Whalehead Club, couldn’t be more convenient!  Currituck County has recently added a bath house at this access, complete with hot showers, this is the second public access for Corolla with the first one being by the Currituck Club.

I love both the bridges at The Whalehead Club, they make for such dramatic and scene setting photographs!  I love how you can see the Currituck Lighthouse from both bridges as well!

Currituck Family Portraits | Oliver

Sweet Oliver is Five Months Old!


I cannot believe Oliver is five months old already!  Seems like we were just taking Shana’s maternity portraits!

He’s such a big guy!  Already growing out of his 6-9 month clothes!  He’s such a sweet love bug too.  Just wanting to cuddle his parents and smile the whole time.

I was in love when Shana brought over the little dorky glasses for him to wear during the shoot!  Such a pensive little face too.

Ollie’s growing and changing all the time, so it’s important to get the little details now before he looses his baby chub!

Can’t wait to see Oliver grow, and grow!!



Duck Beach Wedding | Sanderling Resort

Outer Banks Destination Wedding


Ashley and Jason were married this summer at the Sanderling Resort in Duck, NC.  They had a small intimate wedding with just themselves attending.  Dr. Dave Keller performed the ceremony on the beach.

It had rained earlier and we had a gorgeous sky, even a rainbow!  Ashley had a simple dress, which worked perfect for their ceremony.  She even made the star fish on the back herself!

Thanks for having me!



Nags Head Family Portraits | Outer Banks

Nags Head Fishing Pier


I met Jen and her family while they vacation here this summer by the Nags Head Fishing Pier.  Brooke has photographed them in the past, and it’s so fun to see their family grow!  We were rained out of our evening portrait session, and opted for the next morning.  The lighting was gorgeous!  Sunny, but with a grey blue stormy sky off to the north.

Their pup Dewey is such a party of the family, she’s a pro at sitting in for the family portraits, except when she feels the need to dig a hole!

See you guys next summer!


Corolla Wild Horse House | 40th Birthday Bash!

Happy Birthday Scott!!

Corolla Wild Horse House

We pulled up about 30 minutes early on the beach and there was a full on party happening, 80 or so people on the beach playing games, swimming, napping and having the best time!  I said, this must be it,  Scott’s 40th Birthday Bash!

They all started heading up to the Wild Horse house where they are all staying to shower.  You would think that many people in one house would be cramped but the house is huge and there is more than enough room for everyone! It’s the perfect venue for weddings or any type of party!

I’m not sure how many individual families there were but they coordinated getting showered and coming to the beach for their family portraits.  I photographed each family, the parents from each family and the kids from each family.  It varied from a family having 1 child to 6 kids and everyone was so easy going and fun!  Even the kids were happy to be in the photos after a long day of beach and pool, so proud of all of them!  At the end we took a group photo of everyone on the huge deck overlooking the ocean, we couldn’t ask for a more beautiful backdrop!!

DJ Raymond Burnell kept the party going and everyone’s fannies shakin’ and Steamers made the most delicious food, oysters on the half shell, steamed shrimp, lots of dips, ceviche… delish!!
