Wedding Wednesday: Bridal Portraits

April 29th, 2015

One of the most traditional wedding keepsakes are bridal portraits. Keeping up Southern tradition, I havefound that more and more brides request to have their portrait taken prior to their wedding. As the Outer Banks is a destination wedding location, many brides believe they do not have time before their wedding to get their photo taken, but this is not the case! Scheduling your bridal portrait before the wedding is the perfect opportunity for a makeup and hair trial, and it gives you more flexibility on your big day. The biggest bonus – you’ll feel so much more comfortable posing in front of the camera!

Learn to Love Your Camera

April 27th, 2015

Happy Monday, friends!

I’ve been so lucky to capture beach portraits for new and returning families for years (18 to be exact!), so in celebration I wanted to add a spin to my “standard” sessions. For months I have been dreaming up a new way to interact with my clients and Outer Banks vacationers on another level, and today I cannot wait to share exciting news from Beach Productions!

Starting this Spring, I will begin teaching beach portrait sessions! We know vacationers coming to the Outer Banks seek fun, different activities and I believe this just the solution. In one hour you’ll learn to love your camera, and capture perfect, luminous beach portraits. By teaching you how to use your camera, the best approach for lighting, and 101 basic techniques you’ll walk away feeling confident to shoot your own beach portraits. This is something that no one else offers on the beach, and we hope you are just as over-the-moon for this new venture as we are!
