I had the best time photographing local Licensed Professional Counselor, Elizabeth Tatum, in Raleigh a few weeks ago. Liz is a ball of light and joy, and when she needed new headshots for her business and personal blog, she knew she wanted something fun and out of the box. I loved the direction Liz decided to take this, and I loved that she brought along her sweet therapy dog, Marty! Thanks for letting me snap these fun shots of you, Liz!
I love these two so much. So. Much. I had the best time traveling up to NYC to spend a few days with Janus and Mike, and to capture their engagement photos at a few of their favorite spots in the city. Janus and Mike are two of the kindest folks I know, and are just those kind of people you want to be around all the time. For their photos, Janus and Mike wanted to hit their neighborhood coffee spot, the cobblestone streets of Nolita where they enjoy many dinners out and fun nights, and then wrap up in Washington Square Park, one of their favorite places. We were battling a bit of rain for this session, but it didn’t phase these two at all – they’re New Yorkers after all. Janus and Mike, thanks for letting me follow you around the city with my camera, and for allowing me to capture you two and a little bit of what you share. Love you both and can’t wait for the wedding in November!
When Lydia reached out about doing some maternity photos, she was a little nervous about posing for the camera and wanted to keep this session very casual. We both spent some time gathering inspiration and what came together is such a beautiful look into these two lives as they prepare to bring another into this world. Capturing Lydia and Andrew at home, going through their daily routines and relaxing in their environment was so special, and I’m so happy with what we were able to bring to life in these photos. Lydia and Andrew are two of the most kind, caring and fun people I know and this peek into their life will be such a special thing to share with their sweet baby girl as she grows in the years to come. These two are going to be amazing parents, and I’m so excited for them as they start their family!
Last August, Graham Terhune and I headed down to Dallas for what it sure to be one of my favorite shoots of all time. I am so excited to finally share the full gallery from this oh-so-wonderful editorial shoot I was so lucky to be a part of last year. A group of AMAZING vendors in Dallas came together at The Aldredge House, and brought their A-game to put together what is one of the most beautiful things I’ve had the pleasure of capturing. Emily Allen of CakeWalk Bake Shop knocked it out of the park with the overall design, as well as those amazing cakes and desserts she’s known for. Her vision for a farm-to-table Autumnal gathering came to life beautifully alongside the rich florals from Bows and Arrows Flowers. We were also lucky enough to get custom paper pieces from my dear friend Lauren of Blue Eye Brown Eye – her calligraphy never ceases to amaze me, and the menu and invitation suite were so lovely. Our stylist, Rian Nichole Fashion Consulting, got her hands on some amazing threads – the bride’s Vera Wang dress was a stunner and the Camilyn Beth bridesmaids dresses for the sweetest. And, hair and make up by the always wonderful Beauty and the Blush tied everything together. And, of course we couldn’t have done any of this without the help of After Yes coordinating all the details! Thank you so much to all of these amazing folks for bringing your talents together and creating something so beautiful! And a giant thank you to the ladies at Southern Weddings for selecting our shoot for publication in the V7 edition. We are so honored! And, it was of course so wonderful to be able to photograph it with my buddy, Graham. Here’s to an amazing shoot, and hopefully many more to come!
And, grab a copy of Southern Weddings to see the spread in print. Thanks again, ladies!
