"Our bride is a true local, growing up here on the Outer Banks you can tell in the photos how at home she feels," says Samantha and Taylor. "We wanted to emphasize that less can be more - and in this case, just as beautiful."

"When you think of the Outer Banks, North Carolina you think of gorgeous beaches and warm summer days," says Samantha and Taylor. "What people don't realize is most of it's unique beauty is hidden in places many people don't know about. Our inspiration behind this shoot was the beauty that lies in simplicity. We wanted to show not only the beach, but another part of the island as well. Shooting in the woods of Kitty Hawk on a chilly January day seemed perfect."
