It was a perfect setting on Wrightsville beach for a romantic and intimate wedding they rented a house on Wrightsville beach for their friends and family to help them celebrate the tying of the know on the beach in North Carolina. Beach side Occasions provided the seating and altar set up.

Moon rising on the Intra-Coastal Waterway at Wrightsville Beach

It has been some time since our last blog post. We have been very busy meeting with clients and designing wedding albums from winter weddings.

We also just got back from attending a fantastic photography convention in Las Vegas  at WPPI, which was very inspirational and exciting to see and share ideas and techniques with some of the 16,000 attendees.

Recently we createdf these images from the Wrightsville Beach Draw Bridge which is over the Intracoastal Waterway. If you are interested in purchasing a custom print from one of these images we can print in sizes 24×30, 20×24, 16×20, 11×14 to 8×10 please email us.
