I recently got to photograph my friend (and fellow photographer) Robyn and her husband, Jordan, better known as The Van Dykes! Robyn and Jordan have made a lot of changes in the last year including Jordan graduating dental school (woo hoo!), moving east to a small town and launching their new lifestyle blog. To say they have a lot going on is an understatement. Robyn is a very talented photographer, so it was such an honor when she asked me to snap a few photos of she and Jordan for their new blog and to commemorate their last moments in their beloved Chapel Hill. Robyn and Jordan, thank you for letting me grab these for you, and congratulations again on all your accomplishments! Hope to see you guys back in CH soon! Be sure to follow along with their life and travels on their blog!
When you’re in Santorini with two of your closest friends, who also happen to be AMAZING photographers, you obviously hike up a mountain(ish) and do a photo swap at sunset. Have you ever seen anything more beautiful then these two lovebirds (and baby Terhune #2!) against the Aegean Sea? Being able to spend time with these two in Santorini was a highlight of our summer, and the memories we created are some that will stay with us forever. Graham and I not only got to capture one of the most stunning weddings while in Santorini, but we also got to celebrate our five year anniversaries together. We were literally married on the same day and year. Being able to share this milestone anniversary with these two who we love so much, and whose relationship we admire so much, was so very special to us. Now we just have to figure out where we’re going to go for our tenth anniversary together, yes? G and S, we love you both so much and cherish our relationship with you so dearly. Here’s to many more years of friendship, and many more travels together.
Karina and John’s laid back Wilmington wedding was one of my favorites from this spring. It was a beautiful, sunny day at the beach, and Karina and John’s ceremony, set under an ancient tree on private property right on the sound, was one for the books. I loved spending the day with these two who were so calm, collected and genuinely stoked to get married. The girls gathered before the wedding on the beach to snap some photos and soak up the sun, while the guys relaxed at home before heading over to help John seal the deal. Karina and John exchanged vows in a tear-filled, grin worthy ceremony. Just a few steps from the benches under the Spanish moss of the old tree, their guests headed to the most amazing tent to party to play yard games, take in the sun setting over the sound and dance the night away. I loved every moment of this day, and I’m so very honored to have been able to capture it. Congratulations, Karina and John! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day!

I have been waiting months to share these images that I love so much, and the time is finally here! Lindsey married her best friend, Geoff, in the Florida Keys this weekend (woo hoo!). Back in the spring we met in a private backyard in Wilmington, NC to capture some images of Lindsey in her AMAZING dress. Lindsey has always had the best style, and her bridal look is a perfect reflection of her impeccable taste. Everything from this unique dress, that beautiful red hair swept to the side, and the whole look accessorized with the most elegant Manolo Blahnik’s and earrings was just perfection. Congratulations, Lindsey and Geoff! So happy for you both!
