Happy Monday friends! I hope this engagement session brings a smile to your face because it was such a sweet afternoon with even sweeter people. I joined Liz and Sam in downtown Raleigh for their engagement session. We met at City Market and made our way to Raleigh’s art museum to finish off their session. […]

Happy Friday friends!! What better way to end the week than with a blog post full of love, family, and pretty things!? Leah and Spencer are a one-of-a-kind couple. They opted out of a traditional wedding for an intimate backyard ceremony in Leah’s parent’s backyard with their closest friends and family who came to town […]

Let me tell you all something. If you ever have the chance to be part of a wedding at a historical venue with an amazingly genuine, kind, in love couple, DO IT. From start to finish Hayley and Q’s wedding day was full of joy, excitement, and family who so obviously adores and supports Hayley […]

Happy April 25th, friends! I’m sure this is just a regular Tuesday afternoon for most of you, but for me and my hubby, this is the BEST day. It is our anniversary-our second anniversary. We have loved marriage and all that comes with it-the companionship, the many opportunities to grow, the adventures, learning how to […]

Let me preface these pictures with a little glimpse into the beginning of my conversation with Leah and Spencer at their engagement shoot… Me: “Are y’all excited?!” Leah: “We don’t do PDA. We don’t like it.” It always forces me to get extra creative with engagement sessions when a couple isn’t fond of cuddling up […]

Meg and I go way way back to freshman year of high school. We saw each other through some of the most fun, not so fun, and let’s be honest, some of the most awkward years of our lives. We lost touch after we graduated, but reconnected after her and Steve got engaged. Couples like […]

So one of my favorite parts of being married has easily been that my family doubled in April of 2015! Honestly, it probably more than doubled because Collier’s family is much bigger than mine. One of the sweetest and most unexpected things to happen this fall was when Collier’s cousin Hayley (I’m claiming her as […]

A friend of mine recently asked me if my cheeks hurt when I leave a wedding from smiling so much behind my camera….to be honest I had never paid attention…until Dave and Miranda’s wedding. It’s safe to say that weddings are the BEST and my cheek muscles (do cheeks even have muscles?) get a great […]

Bess and Barrett, Thank you for letting me not only be part of your beautiful wedding day, but letting me document it and giving me the privilege of making your memories tangible. It never ceases to overwhelm me when I think about giving people heirlooms that will be passed down from generation to generation. That’s […]

I got to Werthan Mills Lofts for Dave and Miranda’s engagement session and asked, “So how do y’all feel about having your pictures taken?!”  They explained how they feel a bit awkward and uncomfortable. But not even 5 minutes later I couldn’t help but laugh because they are NATURALS (I mean just look at them). […]

“You are my today and all of my tomorrows.” -Leo Christopher Matthew and I go way way back….to before we were even born. My mom and his mom were roommates in college and continued their friendship afterwards. Matthew and I have been friends our whole lives. It’s a crazy thing to watch somebody you hold […]

I’ve known Hope since we were teenagers and her wedding day was full of nostalgia as memories of growing up together came flooding back to my mind watching her marry the man of her dreams. One of my favorite things about documenting a wedding is being part of those ‘full circle’ moments. It was so sweet to watch Hope promise her forever to such an awesome guy. Zach and Hope compliment each other so well and that showed through so radiantly in the time I had with them. Spending the day with these two was truly so much fun and I can’t wait to see where the future takes you guys!
