Sarah + James. Married! | The Lofts at Union Square.

| Posted in: weddings

Are you guys ready for this? My first wedding at The Lofts at Union Square and it’s now one of my very favorite venues. The space is so cool and those windows! Oh man, the windows let in the most beautiful light all day long. It was the perfect place for Sarah + James to tie the knot :)

My favorite thing was seeing how stinkin’ nervous and excited James and Sarah both were! They couldn’t wait to start the ceremony. I loved when they held hands without seeing each other and Sarah had to choke back tears. I loved catching James and his mom practicing their mother/son dance behind closed doors. I REALLY loved having so much time with the newlyweds alone after the ceremony. The grand entrance on longboards? So fun! And James had everyone smiling when he played and sang a song for Sarah during the reception. Such a beautiful day!

Lindsay + Nic. Canterbury School Wedding.

| Posted in: weddings

Weddings are normally really happy and emotional events but Lindsay + Nic’s had me alternating between smiling and tearing up all day long! Nic’s hands were shaking as he read a love-letter from his bride before the ceremony. Lindsay + her dad both cried when he finally saw her in her wedding dress. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a couple so blissfully happy after their wedding ceremony. And when Lindsay’s brother, who is serving in the Marines, was able to video chat during the reception  . . . Oh, my heart. I’m pretty sure there were no dry eyes in the room at that point! What a beautiful day for such an amazing and special couple. Congratulations, Lindsay + Nic!

Crystal + Hunter. Chapel Hill Engagement Session.

I love everything about this session…. the gorgeous couple, the lovely light, and the beautiful location! You just can’t go wrong in Chapel Hill, North Carolina! And love was definitely in the air – we spotted three weddings while shooting around the Carolina Inn but I don’t think any of them looked quite as happy as Crystal + Hunter did :) They were the perfect mix of romantic + fun. Hunter is such a caring and sweet man and he obviously makes Crystal giddy. . . she hardly stopped smiling all afternoon! I can’t wait to photograph them again at their wedding next summer!

Catherine + Ryan. Haywood Hall Wedding.

| Posted in: weddings

I was so honored to be a part of Catherine and Ryan’s beautiful day in downtown Raleigh. I met up with the girls at Haywood Hall where Catherine was anxious to get her dress on and get to the church! A beautifully simple ceremony, a trolley ride through downtown, an intimate tented reception, and a fun bubble exit …  Jonathan and I were so thrilled to be a part of this gorgeous day!

Katie + Enoch. Greensboro Engagement Session.

| Posted in: engagements

When I asked Katie where she and Enoch wanted to shoot their engagement session she said “I don’t know, we like to play miniature golf on our dates… Would that work?”   Um, yes! I’m pretty sure my eyes actually lit up. I love that the location meant something to them as a couple but was also fun and different! We really lucked out as one of the only few people on the course and got to play around without messing up anyone’s game :) Obviously Katie + Enoch are super fun. They’re also so very sweet to each other and it’s clear they’re at their happiest when they’re together. I’m excited to see these two get married in just a few weeks!
