Wilmington, NC Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Lindsay and Josh’s Wedding in Wrightsville Beach at the Wrightsville Manor!

It’s spring! And it’s already 2018 wedding season! After 9 long weeks off, I’m happy to be back shooting! Last week Madeline and I ventured down to Wilmington, NC (more specifically Wrightsville Beach!) for a wedding at the Wrightsville Manor! We loved Lindsay and Josh’s wedding! Palms, florals, and a very modern venue in a region of the state we hadn’t had an opportunity to photograph in yet. Here are a few of our favorite photos from their big day!


Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Natalie and Grant’s New Year’s Eve Wedding

We’re officially finished! And that means I’m officially on vacation until mid-March! We’re starting 2018 with a total rebrand! It was so cool to finish out 2017 with a banging New Years Eve Wedding! I’m so excited to share Natalie and Grant’s Outer Banks New Year’s Eve Wedding at Pirates Cove Pavilion! On day that was 9 degrees outside and a blasting 40mph arctic wind we huddled over to the First Colony Inn for their 1st look and portraits. After dark, there was a romantic evening ceremony and wild NYC celebration! Definitely check out some of my favorite images from their special NYE wedding!


Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Molly and Harvey’s Winter Wedding at Pirates Cove Pavilion

We haven’t had a Christmas wedding since 2015 so I was super happy to be photographing Molly and Harvey’s Winter/Christmas wedding on December 9th 2017! They transformed Pirates Cove Pavilion into a woodsy forest. It was spectacular! Don’t mind the chilly temperatures and freezing rain, we were in it for the long hall. These guys were troopers! Here are a few of our favorites from their wedding.

I love that Sydni and Reed specifically chose their engagement session location! As soon as they mentioned the Wanchese Seafood Industrial Park I immediately new it was going to be a killer session. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect golden December sunset hour. SO SO SO beautiful! Can’t wait to shoot their local wedding next October! Here are a few favorites from their engagement session! ENJOY!

So happy to be sharing this amazing wedding today! We love November, and we love November weddings here on the Outer Banks! We have 3 to share with you this year! Starting off with November 3rd, is Mckenzie and Tommy’s wedding in Manteo. Portraits were photographed in the most beautiful eclectic garden on Roanoke Island, a ceremony at a local methodist church, and a grand Asian-inspired themed reception at the Pavilion at Pirates Cove!

All of these elements came together in the end and create a truly beautiful day. Here are some of our favorites! ENJOY!
