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!


If you have questions about bridal portraits, we’d be happy to help! Feel free to send us an email: info@beach-productions.com.

Wedding Wednesday: Ring Shots

April 1st, 2015

One of my favorite parts of my job is hearing couples’ proposal story and seeing the bride’s bubbly face when she shows off her new bling. My second favorite thing: ring shots! Capturing these symbols of eternal love is completely magical, and while I adore the traditional ring styled in a bouquet, there are many other elegant ways to show off your sparkle! Here are a couple of my favorite ring shots over the years:

What to Wear for Your Beach Portraits

March 23rd, 2015

Days leading up to family beach portraits I always am asked, “What should we wear?” Today I am going to give you lots of great suggests when it comes to your best look when getting your photo shot by the ocean.

First and foremost, I always suggest wearing colors that contrast with the golden sand. Think about wearing sea glass colors of blues, greens, rich browns, and creams paired with khakis. We’ve always loved the idea of having families wear varying shades of blue tops with khaki bottoms!


It’s important to always remember to not let deciding the “perfect” color to cause you stress. Black is a great color choice that pops beautifully in photographs!  On the opposite end, should you fancy lighter shades of colors always choose cream. White is too stark during the summer, and shows off sunburn. Cream is  soft, beautiful and the perfect touch for your beach portrait session. 2015-03-22_0002

Last but not least, never hesitate to add personality to your photos! Whether you decide to dress by a certain color palette or allow everyone to free-style their outfit, remember the reason you’re getting together to take this photo: to capture memories on your Outer Banks vacation.
