Outer Banks Destination Engagement Session

Outer Banks Destination Engagement Session by Christina Forbes Photography

I absolutely loved capturing¬†Alicia & Dan’s love during their windy Outer Banks destination engagement session! They traveled to the Outer Banks from their New Hampshire home for their engagement session. Since they both love the Outer Banks, they felt it would be the perfect backdrop for their¬†engagement pictures. We started their session at the beautiful Lighthouse in Downtown Manteo. Which happens to be one of my favorite places in Manteo. Although Manteo is the cutest little quaint town and everywhere you turn it provides a beautiful backdrop for pictures. That’s why I love walking around the Downtown Manteo area and stopping wherever I find a place that just stands out.

After spending sometime in Manteo, Alicia & Dan followed me over to one of my most favorite spots on the Outer Banks. I absolutely love how open the beach is. There’s plenty of dunes with spots of grass growing. There’s no houses in the background. Just the beautiful waves crashing in the background. It really is a little peace of heaven for me. Thank goodness that Alicia & Dan were just so laid back and so happy to be on the Outer Banks. It was SUPER windy but they honestly didn’t let it stop them from having a great session. I really loved the movement that the wind gave Alicia’s hair as she snuggled in close with Dan. It was absolutely perfect!

Here are some of my favorites from Alicia & Dan’s windy Outer Banks engagement session! Enjoy!

AHHHH I LOVE the way the wind is blowing thru her hair! And those smiles!!

I just love the way Dan smiles at Alicia….full of love & joy!!


One of my TOP favorites for sure!!

Okay so this might be my TOP fave!!!

OH that ring is GORGEOUS!!! (I had Dan pick that shell out for me too!)

I just ADORE the way they look at each other!! Completely in LOVE!!

HOLY MOLY that wind!! They didn’t seem to mind at all!
