Gertrudes’s Breakaway :: Kristin + Tommy

July 17, 2012  |  Wedding Photography

Kristin and Tommy were two of the most emotional and genuine couples we have ever photographed – and we loved every minute of their wedding. It was full of tears and laughter and most of all – love.

When we first met Kristin and Tommy the day before their wedding for their Love Story interview we told them that sometimes couples cry during the interview we do. We told them not to worry though and work through the tears. Seconds into the interview the tears were already starting to flow as Tommy and Kristin started sharing their Love Story. From that moment on we knew we were photographing a couple that was madly in love and weren’t afraid to show it. Just how in tune are Kristin and Tommy? Unknown to them they bought the same cards for each other. It was only until they both opened them did they realize it. To them it wasn’t much of a surprise and just confirmed how in tune they truly are.

Their wedding happened in 100+ heat but the heat only served to enhance their beautiful beach wedding. After a heartfelt ceremony Kristin and Tommy along with all their guests walked to the ocean’s edge with a seashell in hand and while making a wish threw their shell into the Atlantic. With wishes made, it was time for a night of dancing and laughter. Kristin and Tommy along with their guests danced the night away with a sense of a purpose. And rightfully so they had a beautiful couple to celebrate.

As the night came to a close the day ended as any 100+ day should – with a belly flop contest in the pool!

Weddings in Black and White

June 12, 2011  |  The Creative Process

I realized that we never post weddings in black in white on our blog. I think black images are effective for two reasons – it helps to isolate the emotion and energy in an image and it allows an image to be timeless. If you have seen any of our documentary work, you will know that I shoot most of work in black and white. It’s funny, for weddings I even though we give all of our couples all of their images toned in black and white, I think weddings are so full of life that the color images speak to the vibrancy of that day. With that said, every once in awhile I will know an image will be a black and white image. After I finished editing Adrienne and Matt’s wedding, I knew their wedding could be a wedding that would look equally as good in black and white. With that said, here are some images from their wedding in black and white.

Adrienne + Matt Wedding Film

May 9, 2011  |  Wedding Films

We had so much fun producing this wedding film back in the fall.

After seeing this film again I am reminded of how important great audio is for a great wedding film. There is something about audio from a wedding that is so telling and allows you to go back to that day so vividly. From the vows to getting ready, its the sniffles and pauses that bring you back to that moment. I love hearing the pause when Matt is saying his vows. You can almost feel the tear stream down his face.

Here are some photos from their wedding in October.

An Outer Banks Wedding Film

March 9, 2011  |  Wedding Films

We realized we had not posted some of our most recent wedding films and thought you might be interested in seeing them. Here is the film from Hillary and Brian’s wedding in Corolla. Here are some photos of their wedding and The LOVE Booth just in case you missed them the first time.

We savor photographing weddings like these because it allows us to implement all of our photo and cinematic skills to tell a timeless love story. It also allowed us to use an array of our gear. In the film, we were able to incorporate shots with the steadicam, dolly, a small jib and a video time-lapse of the dramatic weather before the start of the ceremony. We hope this film will be shown for generations to come.

Beach Wedding in Corolla Time-lapse

December 7, 2010  |  Wedding Photography

The ceremony time-lapse is one of our favorite things to shoot and produce. It’s fun and allows couples to see their day from a different and fast-paced perspective. This time-lapse of Adrienne and Matt’s wedding in October shows just how unique a wedding in the Outer Banks can be.

Thanks to the awesome crew at Ocean Atlantic Rentals for the setup on the beach and Gail of The Embellishers for another beautiful wedding.

Outer Banks Wedding :: Adrienne & Matt

October 14, 2010  |  featured, Wedding Photography

Adrienne and Matt’s wedding on 10-10-10 was filled with glorious details from head to toe – from her birdcage veil to his Chuck Taylors. It was an October day on the Outer Banks you dream of for your wedding – 80 degrees and sunny. Shortly after Adrienne cheered on her beloved Redskins to victory, she walked to the beach and down the aisle. With the help of The Embellishers, all of their details came together beautifully, many of which Adrienne created herself. Congratulations Adrienne and Matt. It was an honor to be a part of your wedding day.

Hillary & Brian’s Photo Booth

October 5, 2010  |  Wedding Photography

The photo booth is always a great way to get photos of your wedding guests. We setup the photo booth with a big studio light that is commonly used in fashion photography and a remote trigger so guests have full control over taking their own photo. With a simple click of a the remote the guests are in charge of their own photos and their creativity never disappoints. Because of the remote, no one has to man the camera so we’re often delighted when we finally see the images and the fun things people will do in front of the camera. Hillary and Brian’s guests seemed to love it!


Outer Banks Wedding :: Hillary & Brian

October 3, 2010  |  Wedding Photography

Hillary & Brian’s wedding was a great mix of whimsical and classic. They had a windy but lovely fall wedding on the Outer Banks. We are always so thankful for the couples we photograph and their love for great photography and Hillary and Brian were no exception. Their day was a great reminder of why we love what we do. A trailer of their wedding film is to come.
