Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Doug and Jennifer’s wedding at The Sanderling Resort and Spa in Duck, NC

We are so excited to share this colorful wedding from last night with you! Doug and Jennifer contacted me last minute about 3 weeks ago, and asked if I was available for their Sanderling wedding. I am so glad that I was available still. They have the sweetest family and it was amazing being part of their union. A semi small gathering of close friends and family enjoyed a beautiful ceremony by the sea, and then a night of dinner, toasts, dancing and s’mores all around one of the Sanderling Resort’s campfire. You’ll find a collection of colorful wild flowers amongst some of the most beautifully arranged details Here are a few of my favorites from their big day! ENJOY!

Outer Banks NC Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Colleen and Drew’s Jennette’s Pier Wedding in Nags Head, NC

August 13th 2016. I shot a wedding on the hottest day of the summer. With temperatures that were just shy of 100 degrees, not a cloud in the sky and no breeze. I can’t tell you how thankful I was that our ceremony and reception were indoors. I met Colleen and Drew at the Outer Banks Wedding Expo back in January, and after briefly talking with us amongst all the chaos and having time to review some of our work, they both felt that we would be a great fit for their destination Outer Banks wedding at Jennette’s Pier. If you know me, you know that I love a challenge, so when Colleen presented a timeline to me that reflected our photography coverage would be during the brightest part of the day, I wasn’t shy to jump on it. I was actually grateful that we were presented with the opportunity to work with something different. I’ve learned to embrace the unforgiving light that the sun shines! All in all, Saturday was wonderful. We even managed to squeeze a few killer sunset photos in there. Here are a few photos from Colleen and Drew’s outer banks wedding! ENJOY!

Outer Banks, NC Engagement Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Manteo Engagement Session

Every so often I’ll shoot an engagement (or wedding) and I’m blown away with how good people look. And that has nothing to do with my photography… Honestly I get to shoot some of the best looking people and I am so honored that they choose me to document their love story. Pachette and I go way back to high school. As years have gone by we’d lost touch, so you can say I was thrilled to hear from her when she first inquired about using me for her wedding next July. And to think that she came across my work while reading a magazine article featuring a real wedding that I had shot. Seriously, just makes it all the more special! Pachette and Antonio rocked their engagement session and I could not be more stoked to share their outer banks engagement and I can’t wait to work with them in Raleigh for their wedding in July! Here are a few of their engagement photos! Enjoy!

Chesapeake Virginia Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Chesapeake Golf Club| Josh and Ashley

This past weekend I took a little road trip up to the Tidewater area of Virginia! While I love shoot Outer Banks weddings, it was awesome to have an opportunity that allowed me to shoot a wedding that was outside of the Outer Banks! Saturday’s wedding takes us to Traditions Catering at the Chesapeake Gold Club in Chesapeake, VA! With a early morning timeline, we were able to take beautiful wedding portraits before noon! And early morning doesn’t necessarily mean cool and comfortable, these guys were troopers in dealing with the heat that morning! All was perfect in the end including their awesome brunch menu! Here are a few images from their wedding day! ENJOY!

Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | David and Erin Married in Salvo, NC!

What can I say? Erin and David really are perfect for each other. I knew this the day I met them for our engagement session. I can’t believe it’s been 6 months already! Their intimate wedding ceremony was situated in the romantic dunes of  Salvo, NC. Although the weather was hot, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day! Bight and sunny and concluded with a killer sunset. From maps, to wildflowers, DIY dinner and their precious dogs… I’m stoked to finally be able to share their wedding images. Here are a few of my favorites! ENJOY!

Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Stephanie & Dan

Eeeek! I’m loving these!!! I’m so excited to share Dan and Stephanie’s Outer Banks Wedding with you! It’s always really helpful when your bride and groom plan out the perfect timeline that allows the photographer to shoot literally as much as they want! I don’t think there was a single square inch of downtown Manteo that we didn’t cover! Starting off with their precious backyard 1st look at the Magnolia House, walking our way through downtown Manteo for their Bride and Groom shots, and then finishing everything up with a ceremony and reception at Basnight’s Lone Cedar! Here are a few of Stephanie and Dan’s photos! Enjoy!

Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Thomas and Renee’s wedding at the First Colony Inn

I’m getting vibes that there are a ton of locals waiting to see these photos, so I went ahead a put a little blog update together for everyone! Thomas and Renee couldn’t be more perfect for each other. I knew that just a few short months ago when I photographed their outer banks engagement session, their wedding was going to be killer. I have been dreaming of shooting a the First Colony Inn in Nags Head for the longest time and I finally had the opportunity. The day couldn’t have been more perfect (even with the 99% humidity!) Both these guys were troopers in dealing with the muggy weather and the on and off rain. Also I’d like to once again point out how freaking precious their frenchie/boston Tina is!!! Couldn’t be more stoked about this one, here are a few images from their day! ENJOY!

Outer Banks North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Simple Elopement in Salvo, NC

If I could shoot heavily detailed elopements forever I would. Gosh I love this wedding. Talk about a bride after my own heart! I love Kelly, because she said her vows champaign glass in hand. Everything from the beautiful bouquet (provided by none other than The Flower Field – Bells and Whistles ) to their awesome beach vibes was simply the coolest ever. Here are a few photos from Kelly and Chandler’s simple ceremony in Salvo, NC

I have to say it, Madeline has done it again! While I was personally booked for another wedding last weekend, Madeline (along with the help of her assistant Carson!) took on the challenge of shooting this simple wedding at the Sanderling Resort! Abby and and Daniel are as cute as can be. The photos speak for themselves as you can tell these two are in love! Here are a few images from their Outer Banks wedding at the Sanderling Resort in Duck, North Carolina! ENJOY!
