2019 Expo Sponsor Spotlight | Sarah D'Ambra Photography
The 2019 Outer Banks Wedding Weekend and Expo will be here before we know it! Leading up to the event, we are proud to feature our sponsors to thank them for their support. Their sponsorships help us create an amazing two-day event for you and your wedding planning support crew. As you prep to dive into hiring your dream team of vendors, get to know more about our 2019 sponsors and plan to visit them at their booths!
How long have you been involved in weddings on the Outer Banks?
I've lived here almost my entire life but I started shooting weddings on the Outer Banks in 2011.
What makes the Outer Banks unique and special to you?
Having grown up here and it being the only place I've ever called "home" is definitely what makes it unique to photography weddings here. We love the natural beauty of our coastline. It really is the perfect destination wedding location!
What is unique about your business? What are you known for?
Our photography has best been described as film inspired. Meaning, we lean towards the warmer, darker and more textured side of editing. While we do consider our actual shooting process candid in nature, we also put a strong emphasis on intentional portraiture. We highly value the stillness of art, and always strive to express this in the way we pose our couples. You can see that consistently in our work.
What are you most looking forward to about the 2019 Wedding Weekend? Do you have any advice for a couple booking your services?
I'm really looking forward to revamping our expo booth this year! Each year, I feel like it's a fun winter project to out do the previous year's set up! We're also so looking forward to meeting all of our brides who've already booked us for 2019 as well as meeting new couples! The expo weekend is definitely a great tool for couples seeking to plan their outer banks wedding. We highly recommend having a plan before you arrive! Do you research and homework before hand! Have a list of vendors that you know you want to talk to before you arrive. This will help tremendously with avoiding the overwhelming decision making process that often comes with bridal expos. Most importantly HAVE FUN! Enjoy the weekend and take advantage of everything there is to do while you're here!
Are you participating or hosting any of the Saturday Wedding Tour stops?
As of right now, we will be located at the Sanderling for the wedding tour during the expo weekend! We may also be at an undetermined 2nd location, but we'll keep everyone posted on social media when that's decided.
What other information must a couple know about you?
We are a sister team of photographers who really enjoy working together. To know me (Sarah) is to know that I have a special love in my heart for dogs! You can follow our photography journey and an inside peak at my personal life on Instagram @sarahdambraphoto.
