New York City Engagement Session | Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

We finally made it to one of my favorite cities for an engagement session! I love New York City! It holds such a special place in my heart (because my husband and I got married there less than 2 years ago!) I swear I could move here I’ve always been a city girl at heart! I’m stoked for Brittany and Ryan’s Outer Banks Wedding in 2020. They’ll be getting married at the Black Stallion next July. It was so perfect for us to use NYC & Dumbo for their engagement session location, as they live in Brooklyn. Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session in New York City!

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Kitty Hawk Pier Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

Natalie and Tucker’s Memorial Day wedding is on the blog today! I am so connected to their images! I love that they chose a smaller gathering of people to celebrate with them at their outer banks wedding. Their Kitty Hawk Pier wedding ceremony was perfect! A very informal day that led to some amazing candid photos of everyone at the Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk, NC. Their first look photographed inside their suit at the Outer Banks Hilton Garden Inn was so personal. We also loved their couple photos!  Definitely take a look at some of my favorite from their outer banks wedding!

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Corolla Whalehead Club Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

One of my favorite Corolla wedding venues is on the blog today! I love weddings at the historic Whalehead Club in Corolla! Paige and Roberts wedding at the Whalehead Club was everything perfect! I loved that we were able to do a variety of photos all over the whalehead club property in Corolla. We started at the little bridge, made our way to the big yellow house and then finished the night with a phenomenal sunset on the point. Love these photos! Be sure to check out a few of my favorites from Paige and Robert’s Whalehead Club wedding in historic Corolla.

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Kitty Hawk Pier Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

So excited to share Chelsea and Matt’s Outer Banks wedding at Kitty Hawk Pier! We started the day off with getting ready inside the Hilton Garden Inn Outer Banks Kitty Hawk. Afterwards me moved out to the kItty Hawk Pier for the bride and groom’s first look! We loved the sunny day and the Caribbean blue waters we were given to work with that day! Definitely take a look at some of our favorites from their wedding day!

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Casual Beach Elopement | Coquina Beach

I’m so happy to be sharing these pictures from this casual Outer Banks elopement! Hillary and Dylan had their wedding ceremony at Coquina Beach, which is located in south Nags Head. At first we were so worried about the weather. It was supposed to rain that day but instead we got severe wind. I have always said I’d take wind over rain anytime as it’s it’s whimsical and makes for the best windswept photos! Definitely check out of few images from their Outer Banks wedding at Coquina Beach.

Virginia Beach Wedding Photography | Hunt Club Farm Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

A few weeks ago we ventured off to Virginia Beach, Virginia for Watkins and Carmen’s wedding at the Holiday Day Inn and Hunt Club Farm! Both the hotel and Hunt Club Farm were awesome places for wedding photography! We started off with our first look and most of our wedding party photos at the Holiday Inn which was perfectly located on the Virginia Beach boardwalk. After the ceremony, we finished everything up at Hunt Club Farm. We love traveling for weddings, and are always looking to photograph weddings in a new place. Definitely check out some of our favorite photos from their special day!

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Vista Creek Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

Rasheed and Sky’s held their wedding at the Vista Creek wedding venue! We are so excited to share some of their photos form their Manteo wedding.  This was the first time I’ve photographed at this site in years! I love this venue in Manteo, NC so much! The view at Vista Creek is simply incredible. The surround marsh grass paired with perfect outer banks sunsets really gives you the sense of privacy and intimacy you’d want for your wedding. Vista Creek is a perfect wedding and event venue if you’re looking to host your Outer Banks wedding somewhere that isn’t directly on the ocean side.While Sky and Rasheed opted to have their Outer Banks wedding ceremony at their home church, Vista Creek offers a wide variety of ceremony options on site. There’s also an amazing bridal suit upstairs perfect for all of those “getting ready” photos! Definitely check out some of our favorite wedding images of this fantastic couple!

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Sarah & Mike’s Intimate Ceremony Duck, NC

I am so overly excited that our first Outer Banks wedding of 2019 as come and gone! Is it really that time of year again?! Sarah and Mike had their intimate ceremony in the coastal town of Duck, North Carolina. The closed in gazebo at Duck United Methodist Church was the perfect ceremony location for the chilly spring day!  I love that I was able to soft break into this year with an Outer Banks wedding that was simple and low key. Like I always say, when you’re looking for your Outer Banks wedding vendors it’s most important to go with who you love! You won’t regret going with an Outer Banks photographer who’s work you love for only a few hours, rather than  settling for a photographer just so you can have them the entire day. Even though I was only present for 3 hours at this Outer banks wedding, it was absolutely magical! As we navigated the Duck board walk, in Duck NC, we were able to do all of their family, wedding party and bride and groom photos at this location. We finished up their Outer Banks wedding reception at Trio, in Kitty Hawk, NC! All in all it was the perfect day!  I’m so happy with how their intimate ceremony and reception photos turned out!

Outer Banks Weddings | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | 2018 Year in Review

I can’t believe we’re finished for 2018! It’s been a whirlwind of a year with Outer Banks weddings and destination weddings, and I’m so excited to finally have our 2018 year in review up! I’m pretty sure we got everyone in there! (All 39 weddings!) I can’t thank our couple’s enough for choosing us and for letting us hang out with them on their wedding day! If I may say so, I feel like we knocked it out of the park this year… We pushed out some of our best work ever.  I went into 2018 knowing I wanted to push myself, try new things, and continue learning  so that we could deliver killer work. Goal completed! Stoked to be sharing our year in review! Check it out below!!
