Corolla Engagement Photos Kevin and Sam

I had so much fun working with my brother Kevin and his lovely fiance’ Sam. Our family gets together once a year on the beaches of Corolla. Since there are so many of us it is the only time we get to see each other. When I found out that they were engaged I couldn’t wait to photograph their engagement session. We started out at the Whalehead club and then ended our session on the beach.

I am super excited for their wedding day, where I will be a guest so I can enjoy the moment! Much love and happiness to them!

About the couple:

Samantha is a 6th grade ELA teacher from Bergen County NJ
I’m a huge book lover. I read all day every day. Being healthy is a big plus, but a glass of vino is my weak spot.
Kevin, director 401k implementation  from  Marlton NJ
I’m a meathead, pit bull lover, wanna be chef, tattoo enthusiast and philosophical explorer.

We are best friends (gag lol). We love spending time together. We also have a passion of rescuing and saving underprivileged animals but specifically pitbulls. Kev and I love to cook together, play together and fight together. We met on  match.com.  Our first date was at The Landmark in Livingston NJ. Too many tequila shots. We have been together almost 3 years. Kev and I volunteer on the weekends at the Newark Humane Society in Newark NJ. We have our own rescue pit named Scout. We have so many inside jokes and moments but BOOP sums it up!

Kevin took me to a lake down the street from our apartment. He proceeded to tell me how when he was in NYC last week he didn’t go for work like he said (I immediately thought the worst, that he was cheating!!) Then he got down on one knee and said “because I was getting this”
We are having our wedding in December 2017. We are getting married at Saint Catherine of Sienna in Cedar Grove and then the reception is at The Grand Wilshire in West Orange. The colors are deep merlot for my ladies and the guys are going to wear grey. Because our wedding is in December. We are going with winter and more specifically a Christmas theme.

 

Duck Family Beach Portraits Meling Family

We were so fortunate to work with the Meling family again this year. It has been so wonderful to see everyone over the years. They traveled from Raleigh,NC for their vacation in Duck this year.
This part of Duck doesn’t have very good sand dunes so most of the pictures were taken in front of the water or walking down the beach. Often, when we start a portrait session, we have everyone pose in the dunes with the sea oats in the background. When the sun goes down and gets softer, we do portraits in front of the water. This helps keep everyone from squinting. Thankfully, it was an overcast day which was wonderful for the pictures.
I love that the Meling family avoided the traditional colors and picked their favorite team colors for their portrait session.  We had a lot of fun with this family. I can’t wait until next time!

Ocracoke Engagement Photography Session

I love going to Ocracoke. There is just something so peaceful and tranquil about this little island. I love when people call us up and say “Do you go to Ocracoke?” I am always hoping and praying their date is not already booked! I was so excited when we booked Monica & Rob for their engagement session!

My Mom and I took the ferry over to Ocracoke rather early in the day. We went and had an AMAZING lunch at Dajio’s.  It is a lovely little place with amazing food and a wonderful ambiance. We trekked through town and stopped at all the little stores. Then I left Mom in town to shop and relax while I met Rob and Monica for their engagement session at the beach.

Monica & Rob were visiting from NJ. They were enjoying a weekend away in a gorgeous place. I tried to talk them into photos in town but they just loved the beach. They were happy having all of their photos there. It was a bit windy that day but, it was gorgeous!

We had an amazing session! Afterwards we relaxed in town eating dinner at the Jolly Roger Pub, listening to live music and watching the sunset. It was the perfect day!
