We are lifestyle photographers that offer fun, natural, editorial, and romantic photos to our clients! We prefer outdoor settings and natural light in the beauty that the Outer Banks has to offer, but always accommodate different lighting and venues for weddings, and love to travel to other destinations for photo sessions as well!
What is a lifestyle photographer?
In our opinion, a lifestyle photographer is one that preserves moments as they are happening, capturing the story and emotions, and also creating the best images from the surroundings. We search for the best light, the best background, and position our clients so they look their best. Some of the shots are candid and some are posed, but we're always looking to position our clients so they look their best, while still capturing the true essence of the scene in an authentic way. We may smooth hair, adjust dresses, unbutton the top coat button, ask you to pull your elbow slightly out from your torso, but we won't make you appear to be something you're not. We want to capture you, your essence, your true, beautiful self, in the moment. When you look at your images, you will remember how you felt during the session, and the feel of your surroundings.
First and foremost, we want your photos sessions to be fun! We want you to enjoy the experience and have the session be a fun memory in and of itself. We are laid back, accommodating, loving people that want to get to kno w you and see you look and feel your best.
Maybe you've never had professional photos taken before, or maybe it's something you grew up doing and are comfortable. Either way, we will let you know what to do, so that you can relax, have fun, and be yourself. We will show you what to do so that you look your best, and still get those natural smiles, capturing real moments, that we all love.
We capture the story of your wedding, or the story of your vacation, or the story of your life here on the Outer Banks. We take a mixture of posed and candid shots, and strive to capture those special moments that will take you back to that moment and remember how you felt.
Who doesn't love a beautiful romantic photo? Whether it's your wedding day, your engagement session, or even a family or individual session, a portion of your photos will have a romantic feel. We think of romantic as soft touches and natural poses - nothing to be scared about!

There are few things more exciting than getting married! As a wedding photographer, I feel honored and privileged to be a part of your very special event and love every minute of capturing all of your lovely, enchanting moments. We cover rehearsal dinners, getting ready, all of your beautiful details, first look (if applicable), the ceremony, portraits, the reception, cake cutting, and the grand exit. You choose the photography coverage you prefer.
We work closely with you while you are planning your wedding, to make sure we capture everything you want. We love to work with you from the start by taking your engagement photos, so that we can get to know you and you feel even more relaxed and comfortable on your wedding day. Posing doesn't come naturally to most people, so a little practice with engagement photos before the big day always helps! We love to capture natural poses and candids and that is a primary focus in our photography. In addition we feel that getting some traditional posed photos is also a must on your wedding day.
We build a relationship with you throughout your wedding planning, so that we feel more like friends on the day of your wedding, and can capture you looking your best and most relaxed. Our packages start at $1,250.
