Fall Weddings in Wilmington

Fall Weddings in Wilmington
With summer winding down we are entering into the fall wedding season which is a magical time of year here in Wilmington and at Wrightsville Beach.

Living here in the southeast corner of North Carolina is fantastic. We are so fortunate to have awesome sunrises over the Atlantic and  as the upper atmosphere starts to cool we will see spectacular sunsets from the beach and on the cape fear river banks in Downtown Wilmington.

This is our favorite time of year and it brings in the cooler weather but still with enough warmth to make photographing weddings , bridals, engagements and families even more enjoyable.

If you are new to the area or if you are seeing this and want to know more about the Wilmington area send me an email or give me a call.

We still have some availability on some weekends for weddings and and engagement portrait sessions.  Also if you are wanting to have a Bridal Portrait done this is the best time ( you won’t sweat in your dress!) so give us a call we have some great fall specials going on until October 25!

What exactly is an engagement session? In most cases it is a casual photo shoot with your photographer. It is an opportunity for you to be photographed prior to your wedding, and get to know your photographer and see images of yourselves before the wedding day. The photographer you hired to capture your wedding images should be the same individual who shoots your engagement photographs. The idea is to build rapport and feel comfortable with the person taking your wedding photographs.

Try to get your engagement pictures taken soon after you hire your photographer, not weeks before the wedding. By arranging your session early, you will have the opportunity to enjoy your images during most of your engagement period. Should you wait until the wedding is close at hand, engagement photos will seem like one more thing to be done and little time to do it. The engagement session should be light and playful with plenty of time to capture just the right moments.

To help make these images special, pick a location that has some significance to you both. It could be the place where you got engaged or a first date. The location could be a place as simple as your home, a restaurant, museum, or maybe the college where you met. If you can’t think of anything, ask your photographer for advice. He or she will most likely know some picturesque settings nearby such as beaches, a national park, or even surprise you with a location you never would have considered on your own.

Another advantage to being photographed prior to your wedding day is the opportunity for the bride to have a test run done on her make-up. Set up an appointment with the person doing your make-up for the wedding right before your engagement shoot. This way you will get to see how your make-up will look, not only in the mirror but how it will photograph. If there are adjustments to be made, it will not be too late.

A 50th Wedding Anniversary a very special day! Congratulations to Nancy and Stanley they are from Greensboro and came to Wrightsville Beach last week with their wonderful family and stayed at the Holiday Inn Resort at Wrightsville Beach  to celebrate 50 years of marriage.

Wedding Kure Beach North Carolina

Wedding at Kure Beach North Carolina. It was very windy but the wedding on Kure Beach in May between Amanda and Jason was a beautiful celebration.

They came to the Wilmington area from Winston -Salem to get married on the beach just a few hundred yards from the Kure Beach Pier.

The sunset wedding was very romantic and Jason and Amanda combined two families to make one. Congratulations Amanda and Jason!

 

 

A beautiful Beach Wedding at the Courtyard Marriott at Carolina Beach

Michelle and Joseph came to Carolina Beach from Detroit Michigan last week to get married on the beach while staying at the Courtyard Marriott Hotel in Carolina Beach.

The weather was spectacular and the people at Beachside Occasions did a wonderful job with the wedding setup and ceremony.

 

 

Chris proposed to Sarah last night at Sunset Beach North Carolina

You could not have picked a more beautiful setting for a young man to pop the question to his girlfriend of two years.
The beach at Sunset Beach, North Carolina was in stunning beauty as I was photographing the Ditonto family from the Pittsburgh area of Pennsylvania.
Then suddenly near the end of the shoot Chris asked me to take one last image. I said “Oh sure what are you going to propose to Sarah?” And Chris takes out the little box and says yes which got everyone including Sarah all choked up.
