About your Outer Banks Wedding and Family Photographer

I am Kristi Midgette,  a wedding photographer based on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I was born and raised on the Outer Banks and would not want to live anywhere else but right here beside the ocean. I will always have sand between my toes and salt on my skin.

What makes Kristi, Kristi?

“I am fun loving and full of creativity. I am inspired by love and beauty. I am a daughter, a mother, a wife and a photographer all wrapped up in one. I love to dream. I am passionate and expressive yet respectful of the world around me. I strive daily to be a better person.”

Where do I work?

I primarily shoot on the Outer Banks but I LOVE to travel anywhere! I am so excited that you found me and because I believe that getting to know my clients is the #1 way to ensure an awesome experience, I would love to tell you a little about me! Just watch my video and you will learn much more.

It All Started With…

After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington I started documenting weddings of friends and family members to build up my portfolio.  In 2000, I took a leap of faith and started my own photography business and have never looked back.  Based out of the Outer Banks, I feel very fortunate to have found my dream job and passion. 

Oh, and I love to travel for weddings and will shoot anywhere.  When I am not behind the camera, you can find me at the beach with my husband and two daughters.  We take total advantage of the adbundance of sunshine every chance we get.  There is never a dull moment in our house!

things i adore…

Here is a snapshot of things I adore and love to do in my spare time. You can tell a lot about someone by the things they enjoy. When I am not shooting weddings you can find me at the beach swimming or just taking long walks. That is where I relax and unwind. You can also find me in my yard gardening and planting flowers of all kinds. Yoga is a must and I practice regularly to keep me balanced and happy. You will always find a book in my hands and it usually is a suspense thriller. My favorite thing to do on the weekends is cook gourmet meals and have friends over to eat.  I believe that coffee makes it possible to get out of bed and chocolate makes it worthwhile. I am addicted to coffee which I could not live without. It's what keeps me going for early mornings with my daughter and late night editing. I love all things chocolate, doesn't matter what kind. Perrier is my other favorite drink. It makes me feel fancy when I drink it and it's so bubbly! My husband says that I have a slight problem with shoes. I think you can never have too many shoes! I try to travel as much as possible and have always loved to see new places. If I was independently wealthy I would spend all of my time traveling all over the world.

a little more about me…

I am married to Aaron Wright, captain and fisherman and we have daughters Sterling that is 10 yrs old and Landin that is 17 yrs old. We’ve been married since 09-05-06. (Best. Day. Ever.) We also have one spoiled puppy named Lilly! I started the business in 2000 and am constantly learning all the time! I am the lead photographer, email writer, blogger and editor and have a staff of second photographers! I travel anywhere in the world to photograph your wedding and that is my favorite!

I shoot 25-30 weddings annually and absolutely love my clients who have become friends for life. I’m slightly obsessed with home design, real estate and decorating. My ideal day is hanging out at the beach all day with my family. I truly care about making your day the most easy and awesome experience ever! I love creating beautiful images but more importantly, I love serving couples on one of the greatest days of their lives.
