Figure Eight Island is one of North Carolina’s best kept secrets. This exclusive private island is home to 400 plus residents and is also a popular vacation destination for celebrities and politicians, including former vice president AL Gore, and Sandra Bullock. The island is as close to pristine as you can get and the waters are crystal blue and clear. On a calm day you see the bottom of the chest floor, while being in chest high waters. The Figure Eight Yacht Club is the only commercial business on the island, so before you cross the bridge be sure to stock up on supplies.
There are only a couple of wedding venues on the island. Most couples tie the knot at the Yacht Club, at a private residence, or on the beach. We have photographed several weddings on Figure Eight Island and it is by far one of our favorite places to work. We consider ourselves very lucky to be Figure Eight Island Photographers.
The majority of our family photo shoots on Figure Eight Island are beach portraits. Large families in white button up shirts and khaki shorts playing on the beach is our most common style of family portrait. We also love shooting lifestyle portraits, action photos that incorporate your interest and hobbies in our photo shoot. Whether it’s fishing, kayaking, or playing tennis we love documenting people having fun.
