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!

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!!

Sanderling Resort Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Duck, NC | Josie and Spence

Well here it is! Our last wedding of 2018 is blogged! Before you know it we’ll be featuring our 2018 year in review, just in time for the wedding expo in January! I absolutely loved Josie and Spence’s Sanderling Resort wedding in Duck, NC. So classy, with elements of nature and tradition all throughout. I loved everything from the beach tuxedos, to the lace sleeve wedding dress. The Sanderling really knows how to do a wedding right, and we couldn’t enjoy shooting there more! Definitely take a look at their Sanderling Resort wedding!



Old Nags Head Cove Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Shea and Chad

Gorgeous, beautiful, sunny fall wedding in Nags Head, NC! We loved everything about this wedding. The clear top tent, the stunning sound side views, the golden hour (which seemed to last all day) Everything was perfect! Shea and Chad held their sound side ceremony in Old Nags Head Cove, in Nags Head NC. We finished up the night dancing and carrying on under the clear top tent next to the Old Nags Head Cove Club house. Having never shot here before, I was delighted with our golden these images turned out. Here are a few of our favorites from Shea and Chads Nags Head wedding!



First Colony Inn Wedding | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Paige and Lucas

We loved Paige and Lucas’ First Colony Inn wedding! Beautiful and candid their Nags Head wedding was just perfect. The First Colony Inn is nestled away in the heart of Nags Head, NC close to the beach but also has that amazing old Nags Head cottage charm. Paige and Lucas had an array of different details but one of our favorites was the Camp Cocktail trailer! Definitely check out a few of our favorites from their Outer Banks wedding at the First Colony Inn! ENJOY!


Jennette’s Pier Wedding | Cori and Brett | Sarah D’Ambra Photography

Cori and Brett are on the blog! Finally, after a short break of vacation and other unexpected events we are back on track with delivery and sharing! Cori and Brett had their ceremony and reception at the one and only Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head, NC. We love shooting weddings at Jennette’s Pier. It was a beautiful fall day, and we couldn’t be more excited to share their images. Here are a few of our favorites! ENJOY!
