Editorial Corolla Elopement | Outer Banks Elopement | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

So excited to be sharing this golden dipped Corolla elopement today! I’ve had my eye on this Outer Banks wedding for a few weeks now, waiting to find time to share and blog it! I love little pop up weddings like this! With no care in the world these two tied the knot on the beautiful beaches of Corolla, North Carolina. With just close family and friends it was just enough time for a ceremony and a few bride and groom photos afterwards! They’re the sweetest photos for the sweetest couple, and I can’t get over the golden vibes of that 4PM beach time. And that ceremony arch with all the pampas grass and no greenery! Seriously it’s all the rage with Outer Banks weddings and it’s very quickly becoming one of my favorite trends. I also am obsessed with that Pampas bouquet!! Love it! Here are a few images that are my favorite for their special day!

I love these images! Kim and Jimmy contacted me, explaining that they had tied the knot in NYC during the Covid lock down, and were never able to have official wedding photos done. They took a quick trip to one of their favorite places, the Outer Banks, and decided to have their elopement style portraits done and Coquina Beach. These editorial outer banks wedding photos are literally perfect! I love the simplicity of their outer banks elopement… no flowers, no guests, just love! Here are a few of my favorite images from their Coquina Beach Outer Banks wedding

Roanoke Island Festival Park Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Outer Banks Wedding

Another wedding at one of my favorite Outer Banks wedding venues! More specifically probably my favorite Manteo Roanoke Island wedding venue, Roanoke Island Festival Park. Lauren and Steven’s wedding in Manteo was so perfect! We were able to do photos all over downtown Manteo and the Festival Park area! Here are a few of my favorite photos form their Outer Banks wedding!

Outer Banks Photographer | Kill Devil Hills Beach Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

Kristi and Josh’s Kill Devil Hills beach wedding is on the blog today! Giving me all the black and white outer banks wedding vibes!! Talk about an Outer Banks bride after my own heart!! I loved all of Kristi and Josh’s black and white details.. and can’t help but say it really reminded me of my own wedding color pallet. Black and white really are the classiest of colors to incorporate into your outer banks wedding! It’s doesn’t have to all be seashells and starfish for your outer banks wedding! Something special about these guys is that they also are plant lovers (like myself) and have their own soy candle company and sell plants online! They also prepped, cooked and served their own wedding guest dinner as a token of gratitude! Seriously how cool is that?! I was amazing at how they pulled off their beach wedding, but to add that on top was just crazy! And not to mention Josh is an incredible chef, the food was delicious! Outer Banks dream wedding couple come true for me!! Drop below to see a few of my favorite images from their outer banks beach wedding in Kill Devil Hills, NC! ENJOY!

OUTER BANKS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | COVID ELOPEMENT | THE SANDERLING RESORT

This year has been such a whirlwind of a year! Especially for Outer Banks weddings… I mean I’m actually shooting weddings were there are NO guests in attendance, it’s crazy! To see the zoom cameras set up at ceremonies and having couples FaceTime or Zoom their families before, during, and after their outer banks wedding ceremony is something I never thought I’d see! Jourdan and David contacted me semi last minute and explained they would be having a wedding with no one in attendance. Instead, they opted to have a romantic outer banks beach ceremony at the Sanderling Resort.  No catering or DJ, just a cozy room service dinner and toast celebration between the two of them. I LOVED IT! It was truly perfect, and I’m so happy to have been a part of their day! See a few of my favorite images below from their covid zoom elopement path the Sanderling Resort!

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Roanoke Island Festival Park | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

What a summer it has been so far! We actually made it to fall and were able to start photographing a few Outer Banks weddings. I am so happy to be sharing Anna and Tyler’s outer banks wedding, as it’s long overdue! Originally, they had planed to hold their outer banks wedding at Roanoke Island Festival Park in Manteo NC. But due to Covid, they were force to change venues to the Elizabethan Gardens for their ceremony and use their beach vacation rental in Nags Head as their reception venue. While both of those locations are fabulous outer banks wedding venues, I knew how important it was to make sure they were able to remember their wedding day as they had envisioned!  So after their outer banks wedding ceremony we decided to escape to Roanoke Island Festival park for their outer banks wedding photos. It was literally the perfect time of day to sneak over there, as the sun was setting perfectly and created the best outer banks golden light! All in all I’m so happy we were able to go to Roanoke Island Festival Park for their outer banks wedding photos, as the images turned out amazing! Definitely check out a few of my favorites below!

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Wanchese Engagement Session

HOLY GOLDEN HOUR! A secret island only accessible by boat ride. A pure golden sunset. Literal engagement session fire! I am so excited to share Britnee and Joe’s outer banks engagement session on the blog! The sheer amount of golden light we experienced during their outer banks engagement photos was insane! It really was the most magical summer night that perfectly set the bar high for their outer banks wedding! Britnee and Joe took me on a private boat ride to a secluded island, a few miles away from the Wanchese harbor. I seriously could not have asked for a more perfect shooting location for an outer banks engagement session. Their outer banks wedding will be this spring. Can’t wait to photograph them again in good ole Wanchese at Vista Creek!

Outer Banks Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Moody Styled Shoot at Coquina Beach

Well, with all this free time on my hands this summer, I figured it was high time I put tother a blog post! This Outer Banks wedding styled shoot was assembled by an incredible team of outer banks wedding vendors. I had a vision of dark and moody tones at Coquina Beach in Nags Head, NC. Our team of outer banks wedding vendors came together and made my hearts dream come true! They did a phenomenal job!  I had one thing that I knew would perfect our Outer Banks wedding photos, and that was I insisted that we had to have an all black horse. It seems like  incorporating an animal into all of our outer banks styled shoots tends to be a trend for us! Coquina Beach was the perfect outer banks location to set up this mock outer banks wedding. The weather at Coquina was a bit challenging that day, with grey skies and gale force winds we had everything working against us but in the end we did prevail! So excited to share these outer banks wedding photos! Definitely take a look of some of our favorites!
