Outer Banks, NC Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Matt & Frida Engaged!

I have been so lucky to catch these awesome warm days this winter. It’s been perfect for all the E-sessions I’ve had lined up. Engagement season is in full swing here on the OBX and we are so happy to share this recent session with you!

Matt and Frida are two close friends of mine and I couldn’t have been more honored to shoot their engagement session. I first met Matt about 3 years ago when he moved into the house next to mine, and shortly after that I met his sweet girlfriend Frida. Their love for travel, the ocean and Budweiser was perhaps the single common denominator that lead me to realize how awesome these two are! We settled for Kitty Hawk Pier for their location as I knew that Matt had spent many summers there growing up, and hoped to continue share this spot with Frida in the years to come. Here are a few photos from their engagement session. ENJOY!


Outer Banks, NC Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Ashley & Doug Engaged!

When Ashley and Doug told me that they wanted to shoot their engagement photos at the local coin laundry in Manteo, the wheels in my head immediately started turning. I began to think of all the ways I could possibly turn an ordinary everyday location into somewhere really cool and still have an intimate tone to the entire series. This was SDP’s 1st official shoot of 2015 and I am stoked to be back into full photography mode! We finished up their session in downtown Manteo along the waterfront. Those images can be seen HERE 

Here are a few photos from their session. ENJOY!

North Carolina Wedding Photographer | Sarah D’Ambra Photography | Kevin and Corey married in Corolla, NC

If I could categorize just one of my weddings this year as an “Off Beat Bride” wedding, it would definitely have to be Corey and Kevin’s. I loved their fall theme and their nontraditional elements that brought their entire event together. When a bride tells you that she wants to stop her wedding so she can catch the season premier of “The Walking Dead” you know you’ve got a winner! They were both rockstars and I’m really happy with how everything came out. Here are some of the shots from their wedding day. ENJOY!
