Wilmington NC Photography

Wilmington, NC has so much to offer the local residents, tourists and especially photographers like myself! With a variety of locations to shoot at, there are a ton of options to choose from for your Wilmington NC photography session.

Historic Downtown Wilmington has a wonderful variety of restaurants, bars, nightlife and historic buildings, which is great for a nice urban feel. For the clients looking for a rustic photo session, I love venturing into the alleys that are beautifully accented with green trailing vines, brick walls, and colorful doors. The riverwalk in downtown Wilmington overlooks the Cape Fear River, which is always, a great view for photos.

On top of all the urban beauty you can find downtown, Wilmington is also home to the New Hanover Arboretum, and various outdoor parks and recreational areas. These locations are great options for family photography sessions. Among theses locations, Hugh MacRae Park is a personal favorite. It has a beautiful pond and surrounding trees and seasonal landscaping. Greenfield Lake Park, is another stunning location in Wilmington. With a gorgeous body of water and the trees growing out of and surrounding the lake are draped with lacey Spanish moss that adds a sweet southern charm to family photos. The lovely New Hanover Arboretum features a lovely pond and carefully manicured gardens, which make for stunning photos all year long.

Sometimes (sooooo often!!!) I look back at these sessions and still, after nine years, cannot believe that this is my job. Who wouldn’t want to look at a face like that?! 🥹❤️
