As a destination wedding photographer, I have been to some amazing venues around the world, and while this has happened, many times I have realized that there are many beautiful venues nearby, like this venue that I had the pleasure of capturing for my clients, where the mom, had already hired me back 10 years ago to capture her daughter wedding here in Charleston, South Carolina, at Lowndes Grove Plantation, then 10 years later when her second daughter got married, she then gave me this amazing honor to capture that wedding in Wilmington, North Carolina, at Figure Eight Island. This venue is different then your beach wedding, Figure Eight Island, offers a feeling of seclusion and privacy there are no commercial properties you have to enter a very private gate with a pass. Once you drive and overlook the most amazing homes on the water you get to the yacht club, this is a very nice venue for your reception, and next to it is a perfect green lawn overlooking the harbor for your ceremony. The Yacht club is absolutely beautiful with its wood architecture, fans, waiting, amazing windows, very elegant and warm. I also had the pleasure of working with an amazing wedding coordinator Courtney Thomas Arnold, who made this place so magical. This is where I was so fortunate to capture this image while I was photographing the bride and groom after the ceremony, it became dark very quickly, knowing how to handle a situation like this is very important. I have been using a camera for over there decades, and I know exactly what to do when there is no daylight. I asked the couple to be in their moment, while I asked the bride to use her hand to move this pretty amazing veil she was wearing, I quickly got on the ground with my fisheye lens, and with the right light created this magnificent image. The result is timeless, yet the moment speaks to you, I love this image so much. So did my clients, and it became the front cover image for their album.Keywords: Destination Wedding Photographer (39), Figure 8 Island (2), Figure 8 Island NC (2), Figure 8 Island North Carolina (2), NC (2), North Carolina Figure 8 Island (2), Wedding photographer Figure 8 Island NC (2), Wedding Photographers (66), Wedding Photography (42), Weddings (56).
