Katie and Enoch are one of my favorite couples to see together. They seem so opposite at first glance but when they interact everyone can tell why they are so absolutely in love with each other. They balance each other out. It is the beauty of most marriages, it seems. Katie is so quiet and sweet and Enoch is,well, the opposite of quiet… but equally as sweet :) But they also are the same in some ways – they are both so generous… it’s obvious that they’ve poured a lot of time and energy into their families and friendships. They both love to teach. They are both really caring, and sincere, and humble. I loved watching them both during the toasts… they seemed so uncomfortable with all of the sweet words from friends but it all was so true!
Katie & Enoch, I am so honored that you asked me to be a part of your wedding day. You truly are amazing together!

I love this engagement session by the lake! Chelsea has been a dear friend for a few years now and when she first started talking about David I’m pretty sure we all could tell there was something special about this guy ;) She brought him to a Christmas party at our house last year and I remember the sparkle in her eyes while we were talking about David’s Christmas present. She couldn’t stop smiling! Now they’re engaged and planning a wedding for this fall… and Chelsea still can’t stop smiling. Just check out those dimples! ;)
Chelsea + David, I’m so happy for you both! It’s so cool to see God’s perfect timing in your relationship and I know there are so many people looking forward to seeing the great things He’s going to do through your marriage! Love you!
Caroline + Billy made the trip up from my home state, Georgia, for their engagement session in Cameron Village in Raleigh where they used to live. I love that we shot in the Rose Gardens and at Schoolkids Records – both places that they frequented when they lived here. They even brought their sweet puppy, Grady, who was a little shy at first and then became a total ham in front of the camera for a couple of minutes ;) Thanks for being so fun, guys!
This post is a little extra special because it features the people most near and dear to my heart. My Uncle John married his beautiful bride, Jennifer, in a small ceremony at her home church in Charlotte, NC this June. I loved being a part of this special day that they (and their family and friends) had been looking forward to for so long! Both Jennifer and John had one attendant and seven nieces (my sisters) played flower girls. It was so personal and sweet! The girls each walked down the aisle with one rose, then the roses were tied into a bouquet which was handed to Jennifer when she made it to the end of the aisle :) It was a sweet ceremony followed by exclamations of “what just happened?!?” from both John and Jennifer who both seemed a little in shock that they had just gotten married! The reception was full of little details from the places Jennifer and John have both lived over the years and they exited through a tunnel of bubbles at the end of the afternoon. So fun! The last couple of photos feature my adorable parents and me with my baby sister ;) Uncle John and Aunt Jennifer, I’m so happy for you both!
