Taryn was one of the last subjects I shot in the Outer Banks before I left. She was a pleasure to work with.


Thanks Taryn!

Jamie – And Her Big Ass Jeep!

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Jamie’s Jeep is such a cool prop for images.  She has let me use it before for her and Sara Hillert.  I got angry with myself this time for not scheduling more time with her.  She agreed to help me with some night photography coming up so I have that to look forward to!

I didn’t shoot as much as I normally do this year.  I wanted to enjoy it instead.  Below are a few images from the event.

Audrey + Matthew + Dare Days – 6/6/09

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

Wow.  This wedding took place at 10am on the beach in Kill Devil Hills.  At first we thought we were going to have to shoot pics in downtown Manteo due to the bright sunlight.  We were concerned because Dare Days was in process in Manteo.  Downtown was FULL of people.  We ended up having beautiful overcast skies on the beach!  We shot most of the images in Kill Devil Hills.  After the ceremony Audrey, Matthew and I walked around Dare Days as it was in process.  It was so much fun!

Congratulations Audrey and Matthew!

Kelly and Jason – The Country Club of the Crystal Coast 5/30/09

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

Kelly and Jason held a beautiful ceremony at the Country Club of the Crystal Coast in Atlantic Beach. I was super impressed by the staff who kept things on track. Even though the ceremony was a little earlier than I usually like, there is enough open shade around the area to work with.

Kara and Dustin 5/22/09

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Kara and Dustin were super cool to work with.  I really loved shooting them on the beach.  Kara and her bridesmaids are soccer players so we incorporated a soccer ball in her images.  Dustin is a former baseball player so we brought a bat also.


Above: Is it me or does Dustin remind you of Christian Bale?
