I don't even know where to begin with this couple. Having graduated together from East Carolina to begin their careers in Raleigh, to raising their two sweet pups (Monkee & Beau) side by side, to a joyful season planning for their beautiful wedding day, Allie & Lucas have grown into the most amazing couple! We captured their engagement session in the fall & Allie described her excitement to marry the man of her dreams with these words, ""Whether we are in the valleys or on the mountaintops, our love for each other has remained constant. It has been amazing to reflect on how far we have grown as individuals and as a couple and we couldn't be more excited to see what the Lord has in store for our future!" We were confident the day we met them that their marriage would be a lasting legacy & we have been beaming with joy knowing we'd get to share their wedding images with you today! Their genuine smiles are absolutely radiant, enjoy!

Amanda & Aaron's Romantic Charleston Engagement

February 15, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

As a photographer, I love having a job that allows me to take my work literally anywhere. Heading south to Charleston this past spring was no exception as I was able to meet up with our sweet clients, Amanda & Aaron. Neither one of them had ever been to the charming city before, so I loved getting to show them around a few of my favorite avenues and vignettes as I captured their romance (and their adorable pup, Sawyer)! 

If you're as smitten with the vibrant colors, historic buildings & cobblestone streets as we are, be sure to hop over to our print shop to see a few Charleston images available for print.

Share the Love with a Spring Mini Session!

As wedding photographers it's so natural to think of our incredible couples this time of year as we celebrate the sweetness of Valentine's Day. And as fair as it is to commemerate each new devotion they've made to one another, we wanted to make sure we acknowledge other very special kinds of love this year as well! Through the past several months we've had the privilege of preserving moments for the simplest of love between faithful friends, the great & binding love of extended family & the unexplainably deep-rooted love between a mother & her beautiful children, all to which touched our hearts in such incredibly unique ways. In honor of every kind of love imaginable, we're hosting mini sessions early this year! We want to capture you with the ones (few or many) you share your heart with & offer you memories of this fleeting season that will last an entire lifetime. So, spread the word, gather your tribe & join us on March 3rd at The White Space

We reserved The White Space because it is beautifully bright! With a 12-foot windowed garage door, the space is flooding with natural light - our all time favorite! This adorable collection of images of Shannon & her cute twins (Rooney & Navy) are from a session captured here last year. Take a browse to get a feel & book your slot today! But hurry, there's just a few left... see you soon! :)

The Merrimon-Wynne 2018 Bridal Show

February 08, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

MW-2018-Bridal-Showcase-124MW-2018-Bridal-Showcase-124
Last month we had the privilege of working the 2018 Bridal Show at Merrimon-Wynne for the very first time. We greeted old friends, new faces, incredible vendors & bride-to-be's as each filled the house with their talent & charm. It was so much fun getting an opportunity to connect with all the brides (as well as some grooms) as they peeked at the beautiful space each vendor had put their hands to. There were live models dancing about the venue in the most beautiful gowns, yummy treats that knocked our socks off, beautiful antique furniture & so much more! We collaborated with Meristem to capture brides with their dream florals & they designed the most breathtaking floral installation, bouquet & a few cute flower crowns for them to play with. But, by far the most fun we had was listening to the sweet stories between the couples... each were so unique! One couple was recently engaged on the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland & another in Paris beneath the Eiffel Tower (heart-eyes), but each told their tale with such elation & joy. It was so confirming that these moments of excitement is exactly why we do what we do... preserving authentic moments to last a lifetime!

We were ecstatic to see the line-up of vendors for this event in the main house & had such a blast working with each & every one including Merrimon-WynneSally Oakley WeddingsGreenhouse Picker SistersPerfection by PatriciaMason Dixon DesignsTwo RoostersCatering WorksThomas Blake FilmsAshley CakesCoastal Knot - Shout out to everyone who made this vision come to life. We're so excited to share the images, enjoy!

The Whitlock Wedding at The Carolina Inn

February 05, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

BBT-annajeff-3001BBT-annajeff-3001

During her time in residency (literally while on call at the hospital) Anna called me to discuss her desire for photography in capturing the day she'd always dreamed of. I knew from that call it was inevitable that we would become friends through the process. She was laid-back, absolutely sweet & filled with love for others. We had to pause conversation more than once as she was called to assist patients that needed her & I knew her faithful dedication would flourish in her marriage to come. 

Due to their busy schedules & a lot of travel plans throughout the year, we planned to meet up at the beach to capture their engagement session. They welcomed us with open arms to their beach house in NC & the four of us (with their sweet pups) spent two days exploring the beautiful land around the ocean. Though we had a blast documenting their love through the weekend, there's no comparison to the fun we had at their wedding the following summer! 

This couple had one of the most lively celebrations with the largest bridal party we've ever seen, a full Church as they exchanged their vows, a bluegrass band to begin the reception & a party we'll never forget at The Carolina Inn! Each element was so unique to who they were & it made the day shine with every detail. We're so excited to finally be sharing their images today & hope you enjoy every one. Congratulations to the Whitlocks & may it always be this merry!
