I had so much fun photographing Emery and Chris in Charlotte and few weeks ago. I especially loved hopping around the Plaza Midwood neighborhood for some of these – such a fun location with lots of color and fun areas to work with. Emery and Chris shared so much laughter during this session that it’s easy to see why they make such a great pair. Their connection is effortless, and I’m honored to have been able to capture some of what they share. Here are some of my favorite images from our session.
More new goodness for you this week! I had the privilege of helping Graham Terhune capture Genna and Derek’s wedding day back in the spring. Working with Graham was so much fun, and Genna and Derek were just the sweetest. You can see so much love in the way these two look at each other – such a beautiful thing to be able to capture. I’m excited to share some of my favorite images with you this evening!
So excited to share Liz and Ben’s beautiful Carrboro anniversary shoot this morning. Liz and Ben recently celebrated their 5th anniversary, and since they never had engagement photos taken, they were excited to have some portraits taken to commemorate this milestone in their marriage. Liz and Ben are the sweetest couple – so happy and so in love. We took these photos at their apartment in Carrboro which I love. I am so honored to have been able to capture their love and this special time in their lives. Happy Anniversary, Liz and Ben!
Hope everyone had a amazing Turkey Day and is now as full as I am from days of eating leftovers and drinking wine with loved ones. Now that the turkey is gone and the wine bottles are empty, I’m so excited to share Elizabeth and Kevin’s beautiful NC mountain wedding this Sunday evening. Elizabeth and Kevin’s wedding was a blast. Period. They threw an incredible party and their friends and family danced until the sun came up. I was so honored to capture the amazing love that these two share. Elizabeth and Kevin’s bond is unshakable and you can see it in everything they do. I loved the details that Elizabeth and Kevin incorporated into their day, each carrying some sort of meaning for the couple – the ceremony taking place at the bride’s mother’s home, hamburgers and hot dogs for dinner (Kevin’s favorite!), homemade ribbon wands and wheat grass to boot. I loved capturing this beautiful evening, and I’m excited to share some of my favorite images below!
And, HUGE thanks to my dear friend Graham Terhune for helping my capture this special day. You are the best my friend!
