Most of the weddings I attend these days , are as a photographer not a guest. So it was super exciting to be on the other side of the lens, when my little sister got married last month! I was so honored to stand by her side, as she started this next chapter of life. She has been dating Daniel for ten years now, so this day was a long time coming, but I have to say the celebration was worth the wait! We had a blast getting our whole extended family together, along with all of Daniel’s family and all of their amazing friends who traveled from near and far, to join us for a week at the beach. It was my first time at the Outer Banks, in North Carolina. What a beautiful area, worth the drive if you need a good beach vacation! The weather was a unseasonably cool the week we were there, but we didn’t let that stop us from throwing on our bathing suits, and attempting to get some sun for the few moments it poked out from behind the clouds. Luckily, the rain held out and we were able to have the wedding on the beach as planned. Melissa hired a very talented wedding photographer to capture the day, so I was just in charge of getting some getting ready photos and party pics at the end of the night. In between, I tried my best to put down the camera and embrace being in the moment with the people I love most! Here are a few of my favorites from the day.
