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.

Double Rainbow Wedding. John and Kristen  were so thankful when the rain went away and  the sun popped through the clouds and a double Rainbow appeared.

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.
