Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Kathleen and Eddie’s Virginia Beach Wedding at the Founder’s Inn

Take me down to the little chapel by the sea! Or in this case, the very big church on the corner of Pacific Ave in Virginia Beach, VA. I am such a sucker for simple church weddings. Especially when they’re embellished with beautiful ocean views and colonial reception venues. Kathleen and Eddie were the sweetest couple and I’m so happy our paths crossed. I loved shooting their wedding. We settled on the Virgina Beach boardwalk and the stunning gardens of The Founder’s Inn for their photos. With muted colors, cloudy skies, and simple details their wedding was absolutely perfect. Definitely check out a few of my favorites from their wedding! ENJOY!

Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Chris and Katie’s Engagement Session at Historic Whalehead Club in Corolla, NC

We have been so incredibly blessed with beautiful weather this year. Seriously, almost everyone single one of our Outer Banks photography sessions (weddings included) has been mildly warm, stunning sunsets, and gentle breezes. I’m so happy these two discovered me amongst all photographers. I such a sweet time with them! Chris and Katie were on vacation in Corolla towards the end of May. Chris ended up popping the question, and then a few days later we were photographing their Outer Banks engagement. It was their idea to incorporate the beautiful beaches of Corolla, NC as well as the historic Whalehead Club into their photos. So thankful they were willing to dip into that cold water towards the end too! Here are a few of my favorite from their engagement session. ENJOY!

Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Tori and Kyle’s Grande Ritz Palm Wedding in Duck, NC

Talk about a wedding at a killer Outer Banks wedding venue! I’ve waited 5 years to shoot at this location again! That’s right, the last time that I photographed a wedding at the Grande Ritz Palm was 2012. I love this place in Duck, NC! The vibrant yellow and golds, the green palms, the blue pool, EVERYTHING! Tori and Kyle’s wedding was off the chain! With elements that featured Kyle’s Hawaiian heritage and beautiful bouquets to match the bridesmaids dresses, I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. We were so thankful for wind over rain, and these two were real troopers standing against the wind that day. Here are a few of my favorite images form Tori and Kyle’s Grand Ritz Palm wedding in Duck, NC! outer banks wedding at the Grande Ritz Palm

Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Laura and John’s Manteo Wedding!

I’m really dying over here! This wedding is so incredibly gorgeous!!! Photographers dream of weddings and couples like Laura and John. Their Manteo Wedding at the Roanoke Island Inn and their tented reception at The Manteo House was simply unbelievable. I’m obsessed and in love with every single detail. Anytime I get to work with a local couple I get super excited. Especially seeing as how I knew the bride and was able to watcher put her own landscape ideas and details to work. Here are a few of my favorite images from their Outer Banks wedding! ENJOY! bridal bouquet at manteo wedding

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Katie and David’s Engagement Session at the Kitty Hawk Pier

When you have a sunrise engagement shoot and everything about it is absolutely perfect. The soft light, the blue water, the gentle breeze and the sweetest black lab! I am so happy to be shooting Katie and David’s wedding in September! It’s going to be a stunning one at the Whalehead club! With everything else for the week booked up during the time of their engagement session, I was able to meet them early one morning a few weekends ago. We chose the Kitty Hawk Pier in Kitty Hawk, simply because it gives the beach the little something extra! Here are a few of my favorites from their Outer Banks engagement session.

Hampton Roads Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Engagement Session in downtown Norfolk, VA

Any time I get the opportunity to shoot at a new location, I’m always really interested. Sarah and Steven are getting married in Norfolk, VA this September so we decided that the downtown Free Mason district of Norfolk would be the best spot for their engagement photos. It’s always so exciting shooting in an unfamiliar place. I love having the time to wander around and explore and just shoot as we stumble upon good spots! Here are a few of my favorites from their engagement session last Saturday!

Outer Banks Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Ellen and Joe’s Engagement Session in Manteo NC

Well, spring is here and that means for the next 8 weeks I’m shooting engagement sessions back to back! Ellen and Joe slayed it the other evening.  With a love for brews, I knew that Ellen and Joe just had to spend a little time at Manteo’s local beer brewery during their engagement session. We also hit up Fort Raleigh National Historic site for a few pics amongst their awesome hiking trails in the woods. Loved working with these too and cannot wait to shoot their wedding in November!!
