Ashley up here on the Outer Banks, she knows all of the most picturesque spots on the OBX from Hatteras to Corova and can’t wait to share those backdrops with her clients.
What makes us worthy of your memories you ask? We feel it is our passion, experience, and love of what we do that separate us from the competition! Making your wedding photos spectacular has just as much to do with matching personalities and client relationships as it does with talent behind the lens. On your wedding day, it’s important to have professionals you can trust to capture memories of your day’s events and forever document the special moments of friends and family. After all, your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime photo event! We know what to look for, where to be, and how to capture the important images of your first day together as husband and wife, all while keeping things fun! This allows you to celebrate, relax and enjoy the big day.
For us, weddings are an opportunity to capture LOVE! What does love look like? We feel love may be a look between two people, someone overtaken with laughter, or just something as simple as holding hands. We all know it when we see it and it is such an adrenaline rush when you can capture “The SHOT”! You can feel it as well as see it and when you can capture it in a photo, that is just FUN! This feeling is what drives our passion to show up for our clients and we do everything in our power to make sure you see all the LOVE that surrounds you

Thank you for capturing the love and joy in our special day!
I just cannot thank you enough for all the amazing photos from our wedding!! It was such a magical day and you captured every moment. Both the planned and unplanned!! The pictures are just ........ I have no words. I tear up every time I look at the moment you captured on my sweet husband's face as I walked out to meet him. It will never be forgotten. Thank you again for shooting our special day and making it as magical as we felt!!Sent on 06/10/2021

Ashley is amazing at what she does! We had her for our entire wedding day, from start to finish! She was with the girls getting ready in the morning and running from house to house to make sure she got pictures of the guys getting ready as well. Extremely professional and personable, works with you to make sure she gets the pictures you personally want as well as traditional wedding day photos. Great at keeping everyone on task! I'm sure a lot of you know how hard it is to keep the groomsmen on task. She knows every in and out of the wedding world, if your not sure of something, ask, I'm sure she's got the answer! In addition to our wedding photos she also did our engagement shoot when we first got engaged, which turned out amazing!!Sent on 08/30/2016

My whole wedding day would not have been the same without Ashley and Island Photography. They were prepared for EVERYTHING, and taking pictures with them was a blast. Even my husband enjoyed having them--I was worried about him feeling awkward having so many pictures taken! We also LOVE that they give you a CD of every picture they took--they believe its your wedding and your images should belong to you. I can't recommend them enough!Sent on 07/22/2014
Mike and Allie have captured some of the most breathtaking images of weddings at The Whalehead Club over the years. They are super friendly, professional & easy to work with. Island Photography is an excellent choice for beautiful wedding photos that will last a lifetime!
Mike and Allie Hawkins are without a doubt two of the most fun and talented people we have ever had the opportunity to work with. They have an amazing eye and a gift for capturing the most special moments of your life! We have enjoyed all the weddings we have teamed up with them in the past and always look forward to working with them in the future. If you want to have a blast with your photographers and have amazing images to immortalize one of the most important days of your lives, choose Island Photography. You will be so happy you did!
Island Photography are two of my favorite photographers on the Outer Banks and beyond for several reasons. Their enthusiasm for what they do shows through and allows them to connect with their clients. This connection allows them to capture your true feelings through your pictures. Coupled with their wonderful eye(s) for the incredible shot, you will be blown away by the results! If I was getting married again, I would want them there. Since I won't... I'll settle for my family portraits ; )
