Brunswick County, NC

Holden Beach

Tucked between two big cities, Wilmington, NC and Myrtle Beach, SC sit a little paradise famous for its golden sunsets, soft sand beaches, and laid-back family-oriented atmosphere – welcome to Holden Beach. This seaside town has a way of making even the busiest bees take time to stop and smell the roses. Holden Beach, North Carolina, is a southern facing island that features 9 miles of oceanfront, making it the most significant barrier island of the South Brunswick Islands. Golden Holden, as some commonly call it, earns its nickname as a token to the stunning sunsets that light up the sky every evening.

The Family Beach

Being a lifestyle family beach photographer, it’s a no-brainer that Holden Beach would be at the top of my list of favorite locations to shoot at. Known as the family beach of Brunswick county, there is something here for everyone to enjoy. Families flock here to soak up the sun rays with lots of beach days, fishing, or boating in the Intracoastal waterway.
Photoshoots at Holden Beach are so special and a great family bonding experience making it a top photography spot.

What started as plantation land in 1756 has been passed down through the Holden family for generations, and many of them are still local. Since then, the original land purchased by the Holden family has been separated into a few other small towns now known as Lockwood Folly and Varnamtown.


There are many unique local businesses on the island and even more on the mainland. Here you can find Homemade ice cream, yummy breakfast bagels, mini-golf, waterpark, jet skis, and rentals for just about anything you could want at the beach.


Family beach photography is one of the things I specialize in, and Holden Beach makes for a perfect backdrop. Since it is a southern facing barrier island, the sun rises over the ocean and sets over the dunes. Sunsets are always a stunning display of natural beauty that is nothing short of awe-inspiring. They don’t call it Golden Holden for anything! Watching the sun kiss the sea oat-covered dunes makes such beautiful light that even the most novice photographer can appreciate.
Family photography on the beach can be such a fun and enjoyable experience when done correctly.
