Second shot alongside Heather Payne Photography
I hold this couple in my heart. Two years ago in December I photographed their engagement session, in March I photographed their wedding. By that time Stephanie and I had gotten close. I got teary eyed when I saw how beautiful she was walking down that aisle and when I saw Andrews face. Two years later this month on their Anniversary I had the chance of photographing them again, for another very special time in their lives. But if you scroll through this session and see the last photo they have a beautiful surprise !

This post is very near and dear to me. This is my beautiful sister and brother in law ! I can't believe I am going to be an aunt in January. Here is the first preview of their maternity session and the second one will be all film !
I have been in love with film for almost a year now, I never thought I would actually own a medium format camera. It all happened so quickly, I made a few clicks and BAM ! in just a matter of days I was a new owner of a Mamiya 645AF ! Lets be honest here, film scares everything out of me but it also reminds me of why I love my job. The images always look and feel so beautiful, its real and so organic ! This was my first roll of film that I shot last week and even though it is not my usual I love them ! From now on sessions will include some film :D

Birkdale Golf Club you shocked me, this golf club is like no other, I completely recommend having a reception here because its so beautiful and airy. Back in the middle of June I had the lovely opportunity of second shooting for Emily from Southern Star Photography. This wedding was filled with some much joy and love, every single part of the day was perfect ! Congratulations you two !
I needed inspiration and here is what I got. I needed to design something, have a vision and put it down on paper. In this case your looking at it on digital. But I couldn't tell you how happy I am with how this session turned out. It was my first styled session (of many) and totally recommend them :) Thanks to Laynie & Belle for the beautiful hair piece
Adaumont Farm how I love thee ! Heres to southern weddings, this wedding is the second one I have been able to second shoot since I moved to North Carolina. I knew how beautiful Southern weddings were, but this one was just awesome and with a Hawaiian twist. This is by far one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever been to. This couple is beautiful in and out and just the sweetest match. I want to thank Christina for letting me second shoot with her at Adaumont Farm and for being amazing ;) It was such an honor to be apart of such a gorgeous wedding filled with worship, love and fun. Amber and Justin couldn't have had a more perfect wedding.
I had the awesome opportunity of assisting my sweet friend Alicia from Alicia White Photography. I was super pumped because it was my first wedding since I moved to North Carolina. We drove to Greensboro and had the opportunity of shooting our very first roof top wedding at Kress Terrace. This place is so rad ! The bride and groom had a beautiful wedding, as well as awesome Jones Sodas and a band from the 90's called Everything ! Over all this wedding was just RAD! Thanks again to Alicia :)
