Today’s portraits along the North Carolina coast embrace natural elegance to perfection. Camry has spent her entire life in the Old North State and after she recently moved to the coast, she decided her bridals should be on a great barrier island right off the coast of North Carolina. Luckily, photographer Katie Sams frequented the island since childhood, and brought along elements of the sea that she had found washed ashore throughout the years. The sponge and sand dollar were the perfect organic, simple and elegant props needed to complete the look along with a maritime bouquet which was created with bespoke silk ribbons by Boxwood Avenue. / Images by Red Boat Photography.
