Engagement Styled Shoot Inspo
Even though its hard to say goodbye to the sunshine and great weather, we decided to be inspired by the cold and be thankful for a change of scenery. We dreamed up a styled shoot at an iconic Outer Banks spot with a vintage hip vibe. Using these vintage finds, we styled our rock star models Tracy and Joey with bold colors and clean lines. Teaming up with Chris Bickford (did we mention he is a world traveler and photographer for NatGeo?!), we created an edgy and fun scene at the Duke of Dare Motel at Manteo here on the Outer Banks. Keeping this engagement inspiration shoot completely local, we made these amazing Heirloom mum bouquets from a family farmer who grows these giant heirloom mums right over the bridge in Mann's Harbor! (A family secret we want the in on).
We love working with other photographers, using the unique OBX architecture, abandon beauties, and creating something from just a small vision. Such a great team effort and so much fun putting it all together with different vendors making it happen.
What did you think of this shoot? Hopefully we inspired you to have your Outer Banks engagement shoot at a unique place with some cool history!
