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: 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: 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.

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!

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?


Two Weddings, Two Dresses – Tiffany and Phil 5/16/09

Tuesday, May 19th, 2009

How cool is it that Tiffany had two ceremonies and two dresses on the same day?  We were at the Oasis Suites on Saturday morning.  The dress to the left was for her Catholic ceremony at the Holy Trinity by the Sea Church in Nags Head.  The dress to the right was for her beach ceremony in Kill Devil Hills a few hours later.



Above: Tiffany has help from her girls getting ready in the first dress.  The beach ceremony dress was to be a surprise to everyone.

cook_ditzel_352Above:  Instead of the usual glass taps to get the couple to kiss at the reception, Tiffany and Phil requested their guests stand and sing a verse from a song with the word “love” in it.  I didn’t think it would happen.  Almost every table made them kiss!
cook_ditzel_355Congratulations Tiffany and Phil!
