Island Photography sees the Outer Banks as its creative “Sandbox,” noting how it’s  “hard not to be inspired” in such a gorgeous location. Their team will photograph any event from Carova to Hatteras, and they especially love working at venues like the Whalehead in Historic Corolla in Corolla and the Sanderling in Duck - and of course on the beach.

Specializing in wedding and family portraits, Island Photography strives to capture your “perfect moment, perfectly.” As wedding photography specialists, they “love seeing couples unite“ and want you to “fall in love” with their results. To help with this goal, their website offers pages of  tips on how to add just the right color accents to your surrounding décor and to help you look your best during your shooting session. Their website also shares suggestions on how to frame your photos in style.

Island Photography’s  new owner is Ashley Reid, who grew up and studied photography on the Outer Banks and later majored in art and business in Wilmington. As a  bona fide local, Ashley knows where to find the “most picturesque spots” on the OBX, and she says “she can’t wait to share” those beautiful backdrops with her clients. The passion and care Ashley puts into her photography she hopes will help clients “relive the moment” every time they view them.
