Amy and Matt’s Kitty Hawk Wedding

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

It’s hard to believe Amy and Matt had their wedding at the Hilton Garden Inn beach access in April of this year.  It just doesn’t feel that long ago we were in Kitty Hawk!  There were plenty overcast skies but the rain held off until the reception began.


Above: Important ring bearer activities.


Above: Important groomsmen activities.


Above: There was a slight drizzle during the pre-wedding photos.  Amy’s bridesmaids were very helpful!


Above: I was too far away to know what was so funny during the ring exchange.

Above: Don’t worry.  There was no mess!

Congratulations to you both!

Myrna and Paul’s Wedding – The Pointe Golf Club

Thursday, June 17th, 2010

Myrna and Paul decided to hold their wedding and ceremony at The Pointe Golf Club in Powell’s Point, NC.  I had never shot there before.  I was very surprised at the hospitality of the facility.  There were rooms for the bridal party, plenty of reception space, and beautiful grounds for the ceremony and pictures.  I was able to spend some time with owner Keith Hall and his manager Angela.  They are both fast at work creating an all-inclusive wedding facility with the Pointe.  They have an extremely friendly staff and a no nonsense attitude towards the big day.


Above: Myrna arrives early to put the finishing touches on her centerpieces.


Above: Owner Keith Hall was nice enough to consult me and the bride about the chair setup for the ceremony.  The lighting was great and the location was beautiful.


Above: Myrna and her girls have a toast before the ceremony.


Above: Another example of the beautiful grounds!


Above: Tons of fun at the reception!


Above:  The Pointe rests very close to the sound side of the ocean in the Outer Banks.  Sunset shots are a breeze!


Above: Glad I was able to catch this cheeky glance!  Congrats to you both!

Kathy and Jeff – Kill Devil Hills 10/03/09

Monday, January 18th, 2010

I’m so thankful my web designer fixed my blog.  I can finally get more content on here.  Kathy and Jeff held a super fantastic wedding outside of a GORGEOUS home in Kill Devil Hills in October of last year.  I’ve had quite my share of “event home” weddings but this one took the cake.  We were close enough to the sound for a beautiful sunset, the grounds were large enough for a tent and there was a nice pool area designated for cocktail hour.  Beautiful.

Above: The event home having just been decorated before the guests arrived.  The blue sash was a GREAT touch to hide the parking areas.

Above: Luckily I got my shots before getting shot!

Above: Why are women (especially moms) better at ties than men?

Above: Suites?  Check.  Sunglasses? Check.  Beer?  Check.

Above: Next to green, purple is my favorite color.  My future home will have a purple door.  I need a volunteer to distract my fiance whilst I paint it.

Above: Yes, I have done this image before but I love it so much!  And it doesn’t hurt the fact that Kathy has perfect legs for it!

Above: Spontaneous image of Kathy less than 10 minutes before the ceremony.

Above: The best part about being a kid at a wedding is you can kick back and chill until a grown up hurries you off to some ceremony!

Above: Kathy gets a kiss from both fathers before being given to Jeff.

Above: The sand ceremony.

Above: I’m all about shooting images from a child’s perspective.

Above: Jeff, I respect you for this.  You did what had to be done to get that garter!  🙂

Above: Congratulations Kathy and Jeff!  Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day.
