It’s all about location. We want to challenge the mind and ask you to think outside of the box. Wilmington, NC is a beautiful area! We have some of the most beautiful and clean beaches on the east coast. We also have great sunrises and sunsets. With that being said, we have a few favorite photography locations.
We suggest Wrightsville Beach, Carolina Beach, Kure Beach, Fort Fisher, NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, Airlie Gardens, Wilmington Arboretum, the local parks, downtown Wilmington, the Riverfront or on the boardwalk in Wilmington, the USS Battleship Memorial, old historic buildings in the historic district of Wilmington, the Henrietta Riverboat or any of the other Cape Fear River Boats, photos or videos with the Carriage downtown/Wilmington Trolley, Greenfield Lake, and Kenan Chapel (Landfall).
All of these locations give a bride the opportunity to have a unique look to her proposal, engagement, bridal or wedding photos. Some locations charge and some require a permit for photos/ceremony. We have shot photos at almost all of these locations. They really look great when completed. You will definitely like the final result. We also love these spots for the ability to customize and be creative. Please contact us for ideas if you are interested in these locations.
Brunswick County has beautiful locations as well. Sunset Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, Holden Beach, Oak Island, Caswell Beach, Bald Head Island, Southport, Leland, Calabash, and Shallotte all offer unique and creatively customizable options. Two of my favorites are the Old Baldy (the Bald Head Island Lighthouse) and the Oak Island lighthouse. The both stand tall and are a nice contrast to the elegant gown that a bride would wear. This entire area is also rich with history.
Check out Bellamy Mansion, or Poplar Grove Plantation, or the Wilmington City Club, for a photo shoot that is reminiscent of a time gone by. Again, each is very unique but it does offer the bride and photographer the ability to make the photo shoot uniquely hers.
It is our hope that you will look at Wilmington, NC and our surround area a little differently now. We have beautiful natural backdrops that are just begging to be a part of your wedding memories. With the right photographer, each location can take on a creative spin that will bring your photos to life. Please tell me your opinion of these spots and let me know of any other spots that you can think of.
