2016 Spring Mini Sessions. Registration now open!

It’s springtime! I’ve had that scene from the movie Bambi running through my head where all the flowers are blooming and the baby animals are being born and birds are chirping because they’re “twitterpated”… Does anyone else remember that? No? Go watch Bambi again. It’s so great.

Anyway, I’m so excited about the warmer weather and longer days. Doesn’t the sunshine just make you happy? After being stuck inside most of the winter with various illnesses, morning sickness (hey, P.S., I’m having another baby!), and snow, it’s so refreshing to throw my windows open and breathe in that fresh springtime breeze! I’m also itching to photograph more so I’m excited to open registration for my Spring Mini Session event, happening Sunday, April 10th!

These sessions are shorter than a normal portrait session making them perfect for getting a good set of updated photos with your family, fiance, spouse, baby bump, or pets without taking up an entire afternoon!

Caroline + Chris. Part II. Old North State Club Wedding

| Posted in: weddings

Continuing with “part two” of Caroline + Chris’ gorgeous summer wedding!

These two were so relaxed and easygoing and really didn’t want any super pose-y, dramatic photos but just some snapshots of them together as newlyweds. Well, these two are so dang gorgeous and in love that their ‘snapshots’ turned out to be some of my favorite portraits ever! We followed up our portrait session with an incredible tented reception in the front yard. A five-course dinner was served as guests cried and laughed at the toasts and clinked glasses in agreement. During dinner I got to steal the bride and groom away for a few minutes of portraits at sunset and after the cake was cut we moved to the totally transformed backyard for a reception that lasted past midnight! There was an incredible live band, more delicious cake, super fun dancing, and Bojangle’s biscuits as a midnight snack.

I’m sure this wedding will go down as the favorite of many many guests. I’m so thankful that I got to be a part and especially loved my few minutes of one-on-one chat time with Caroline + Chris during our sunset portraits. You guys are fantastic and I hope we get to meet again in the future!

P.S. Caroline has a food blog that is full of fun and healthy recipes (and mouth-watering photos to go along with them! Check it out at  yolo-sole.com (You only live once, so let’s eat!)

Caroline + Chris. Old North State Club Wedding.

What can I even say about Caroline + Chris’ wedding? It was stunning from beginning to end. Every detail was dripping with beauty and touched with luxury. My dear friend and amazing designer, Leigh Pearce, took Caroline + Chris’ vision and turned it into perfect reality! But even better than how the day looked was how the day felt.This gorgeous couple’s New York love story is like something straight out of a movie… meeting at JFK airport, sharing a cab, exchanging phone numbers for another date, and getting engaged in Central Park.

Their wedding was held at Caroline’s family lake house and was equal parts picture perfect and full of real life moments. I love that the girls were getting ready in a bedroom as the wedding setup was going on all around them. You could feel the excitement in the air as we heard cocktail hour being prepped in the kitchen, the florist walked in and out of the back room with incredible arrangements of sweet-smelling blooms, and family blew in and out of the house with showers of kisses and lots of laughs.

Guests were greeted at the front door with glasses of champagne and got to enjoy a short cocktail hour before being seated next to the pool for the ceremony. And the ceremony… Oh, guys… It was so sweet and heartfelt and I just melted every time Caroline and Chris looked at each other with hearts in their eyes :)

This day was so gorgeous that I took way too many photos and couldn’t narrow it down for this post so it’s being split in two.. You’ll get to see more portraits and the super-amazing reception next so check back soon!

And, of course, I couldn’t have done it without help from my amazing second shooter, Mabyn. She is a gem. So consistent, and creative, and fun! She made the 14 hour day even better! ((Love you, Mabyn!!)
