    Highly recommend!!

    Amazing experience, and we haven’t even gotten the photos yet! Doug and Michelle responded to us immediately, helped pick the best time and answered all our questions. Michelle made us feel very comfortable and her amazing daughter even took some photos on my phone to share immediately with our families who weren’t there. We do not get photos taken often so Michelle was great with directing us, and laughing with us when we struggled ha! She dealt with our dogs for some photos and just made the whole experience smooth. I cannot wait to see the pictures!!

    Thank you Molly for the great review! I'm so glad this was a great experience for you! We have 2 people editing so we will email you once your images are in our editing system. Once they are edited, we will email you with a link. Please feel free to email me any time for an update. It's not a quick process because of the number of photos we shoot. For example, the wedding I'm editing has over 2000 photos to go through and it's not a 1 button edit. LOL! Thank you again for the kind words and your business! We'll do a great job on your final images!!!

    Beautiful pictures on a tight budget!

    We are so lucky to have found Douglas for our big day and he offered a rate we couldn’t refuse! We are so appreciative of him(especially during these uncertain times) for helping us capture our memories that we will now have to last a lifetime! Thank you for making our wedding day absolutely perfect!

    Incredible Experience

    Everything about this company was total professionalism. Our photographer Michelle arrived on time, was extremely kind and helpful. We obviously had no idea what we were doing, she was awesome about keeping everyone organized and making sure we were set up for great pictures. We haven't gotten our full album yet as the wedding was a couple weeks ago, but our "sneak peak" pictures were jaw-droppingly beautiful. Cannot wait to see the rest, and cannot recommend them enough.

    Michelle and Doug have been the best decision we made for our wedding! They are the sweetest couple. Everyone in my bridal party absolutely loved Michelle. We had an engagement shoot done as well as the wedding. We just got a sneak peak back from the wedding and I CANNOT WAIT to get back the rest! Thank you again Michelle and Doug!

    Best Vendor Ever!!

    Definitely recommend this vendor!! Michelle and Doug did a fabulous job with our wedding and engagement shoot. Well worth every penny!!!! They both have huge experience and were very helpful in the planning of the shoots and planning of the wedding photo list. They are always very responsive. The best part is they care about each of their clients. They will do anything they can to make sure you have a great experience. I have never had a photographer take pictures that take my breath away and almost every picture they took did that. I will definitely use them again for future family portraits.

    10 Year Vow Renewal

    We had a very intimate vow renewal to celebrate our 10 year Anniversary. Although our renewal was small, Doug gave our event as much attention as any other VIP event. He was on time, professional, and easy to work with. Most important to us, we were able to see and enjoy our photos immediately. He exceeded our expectations. Thank you!!

    Doug and Michelle were great to work with offering alot of advice aside from just Photograpy. We loved our pictures and day of service was amazing. Michelle even helped me get into my dress when my Mom was having trouble! Not expected, but much appreciated. Super sweet, the only issue we had was waiting for our images but they were worth it in the end.

    Outer Banks Productions's reply:

    Jaclyn, thank you so much for your kind words and great review! We are always available to help any of our couples with non photography issues. We've joked about also becoming wedding planners, since we have so much experience. You two were wonderful to work with and it was our pleasure. Sorry about the delay on the photos. The Fall is any photographers worst time for getting images edited because we have so many weddings to shoot and all the summer family portraits to finish also. Those 2 hurricanes in the Fall cost us around 2 weeks of solid editing time. We really worked as fast as possible to catch up and your patience was beyond belief! I'm really glad you like the photos! I'm also going to email you a free family portrait session that you can use for any date that we are open and it never expires! So keep an eye out for that. Again, thank you for your business and your wonderful review! We hope to work with you both, again!

    Doug and Michelle photographed my getting ready, first look photos, church wedding and reception. I'm so happy I hired them.

    It’s hard to find the right words to describe how incredible Michelle and Doug are. To say that they go above and beyond for their clients is an understatement. On the day of our wedding in Frisco, NC, the island flooded nearly two feet deep. They found someone to lend them a truck so that they could drive through the flooding to capture our special day. Michelle was so kind and laid back, making sure that she captured every moment without being overbearing. She gave us the opportunity to tell her which poses we wanted to do, but offered ideas when we asked. We could not have asked for a better person to capture our big day!

    Spring for the videography. It is my biggest regret. Shelley is a sweetheart! The day of our wedding was complete chaos, she gave me the gentle push to get through it. Without someone as professional as her I can't imagine the outcome. I can not wait to see the fun memories she captured! Also, this is a Christian, family business, their prayers for my family were right on time! Thank you Doug and Michelle Haber of Outer Banks Productions!!!

    We were so excited to work with Michelle and Doug from the get-go. Finding a photographer that was affordable, yet produced great quality was not an easy task. We were able to book Outer Banks Productions for our photographer and videographer for our wedding on September 24th, as well as for our engagement photos, which turned out AMAZING! They are the absolute sweetest couple and so very easy to work with. They are quick to respond to emails and any questions at all you may have (I had a lot!), which was so helpful considering we were two and a half hours away from where we were getting married. On the day of, they kept us on our timeline and really helped us make this day the most memorable day of our life. They didn't miss a beat!

    Do not hesitate to book Outer Banks Productions for your photographer and videographer, you will NOT be disappointed! We are so excited to see the memories of our wonderful day!

    I am so happy we went with Michelle and Doug! They were amazing from the beginning and always available if we had questions. They really went out of their way to work with us, which I appreciated due to us living out of state. On the wedding day, they both were incredible in capturing all of the photos we wanted, as well as amazing candids. Once we got to see the photos, we were so blown away...I still can't stop looking at them! You only get one chance to capture your wedding, and Outer Banks Productions nailed it. Go with them!

    Doug & Michelle were a joy to work with - you can tell they really enjoy what they do. Michelle and I spoke about my wants/needs 2 weeks prior to my wedding and was very caring and sincere about what specific shots I wanted. She had a family portrait list she was following on the day of our wedding - a very windy Outer Banks day at that - and got the job done. I have only seen my sneek preview - and not the entire portfolio - but based on the quality of our photographs from the sneek preview, we can't wait! They are also very responsive to e-mails which I always think is important for a positive client relationship. Prices are very reasonable in comparison to other local area photographers.

    When my husband and I made the decision to elope, it was with little over a week before the 3 year anniversary of our first date, which of course was at the waterfront in Manteo. I was very skeptical that the Habers would have the free time to do this for us, so we thought that a weeknight wedding may make things run more smoothly for planning. We were pleasantly surprised to hear that they were free and very happy to help us out! Michelle seemed just as excited as us in this big secret we were sharing with them!

    I’ve always wanted to get married at sunset, it being my favorite time of the day. So Michelle helped us begin to plan the where and when for the small ceremony to try to make the most of the light. My husband met with the Habers that afternoon and they all decided that the Lighthouse would make for the best setup, and then we would stroll around downtown Manteo snapping pictures as we went, and hoping against hope to catch one of our local famous sunset skies.

    Believe me when I tell you, seeing how our pictures turned out brought tears to my eyes. I was expecting something great, given I’d been researching their work online for the past few months, I knew they would turn out well. But what we got was something beyond words. They were better than I could have ever imagined. There were shots I hadn’t thought of, and they turned out to be some of my favorites! My wonderful husband picked out my bouquet, and they actually matched our sunset perfectly! I have received so many compliments from friends and family.

    I recommend Outer Banks Productions, due to their imagination, free & easy personalities, humor and above all else their professionalism. Something you don’t always get from local businesses in this area.

    Thank you Michelle and Doug for sharing with us, and helping to capture our very special day! We look forward to our ‘Trash the Dress’ session this winter/spring!

    Heather and Doug, owners of OBP, were a delight to work with - they provided exceptional photography services for a very affordable rate! What I appreciated most was their ability to get shots without being obtrusive.
