Sarah H. North Carolina Bridal Session.

The stunning miss Sarah has recently become a Mrs! We photographed her bridal portraits at the Gardens at Gray Gables in Summerfield, NC after she was beautified by Carla White Hair & Makeup. . .

I just love her smile . . .

We drove just a few minutes down the road to a second location. This red barn was perfect for our session!

And we ended with a perfect North Carolina sunset . . . Sarah + Justin’s wedding photos are coming soon!

Cecilia + Pak. Duke University Engagement.

Get ready for a treat, y’all! Pak + Cecilia are getting married in Hong Kong this December but wanted to do their engagement session here in North Carolina where they’ve lived, worked, and attended school for the last few years. We met in front of the beautiful Duke Chapel and worked our way around campus. It was such a perfect session!

Aren’t they cute together?

I’m pretty sure a few people thought it was Cecilia + Pak’s wedding day because of their awesome outfits! We got a few “congratulations!” and claps from students while we were shooting.

Duke’s campus is full of beautiful architecture!

Cecilia was such a pro walking around campus in these beautiful sparkly heels!

Pak is such a sweet fiance. . . he helped Ceci down stairs, fixed her hair, and just took care of her the whole time. Cecilia is a lucky lucky girl :)

It was such a perfect fall day, it would be silly not to play in the grass :) Just as I was about to ask Ceci + Pak how they felt about laying on the lawn, Cecilia brought it up!

I think this is my favorite. . .

. . .but this one’s pretty darn cute, too :)

I love Cecilia’s red shoes. . .

We were just about to leave this part of campus when mist started coming out of the grates in the ground! Such a cool, unexpected element to play with. . .

I love that they brought bubbles to play with at the end of the session! I think we were having a little too much fun these last few minutes ;)

The White Family. NC Family Photographer.

| Posted in: family

This beautiful family has been due for a session for quite a while now! Carla is the brains + beauty behind Carla White Hair & Makeup… we’ve been friends for a few years now and work together on lots of shoots and weddings around North Carolina. Since they recently added a beautiful baby girl to the family, we thought this would be a great time for some updated family portraits!

Austin loves being a big brother. . .

Just look at those beautiful blue eyes!

Evy is so beautiful and happy! She was smiley the whole time!

Somebody got a little grumpy in the middle of our session. . .

. . . but then he realized he was missing out!

Cutie :)

Carla, I’m so glad we finally got to do this session together! Your family is so precious :)

Victoria + William. NC Engagement Session.

Victoria and William are one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to meet + photograph! We first met during our initial consultation at the wonderful Maxie B’s bakery here in Greensboro… they exchanged adorable glances at each other while telling me the story of how they met, fell in love, and got engaged. Seriously, they’re just perfect for each other! We shot their engagement session at William’s parent’s home in Shelby, North Carolina. As Jonathan and I got closer and closer to our destination, I wondered what this location was actually going to look like! We were in the middle of a historical downtown area and it just seemed like there was no space! We pulled into the driveway of the Blackley family home and were greeted by smiles, hugs, and a tour around the property. . . Boy, was I wrong about not having space! The property was full of beautiful nooks to shoot in, and was complete with personal family history, details, and even chickens!

Victoria was not as excited as William about holding the chickens for a few minutes ;)

Seriously, this is such a gorgeous backyard. . .

Gosh, you two are adorable!

I think she looks pretty comfortable in his arms . . .

Victoria painted this old window with their initials and wedding date. Such a cute idea!

So romantic. . .

Check out this gorgeous diamond!

I think this is one of my favorites from this session. . .

. . . but this is a close second fave :) Pretty soon they’ll share this last name initial!
