I am so excited for Jessica, Tim, and Lily for the arrival of their new little one, sweet Adam. I have known this family for quite a while now. We met in childbirth class when she was pregnant with Lily and me with Oliver, and I am so happy to have been able to photograph their 2nd! Adam was a complete angel for the shoot. He literally did not wake up until the very end. Lily is at an age where getting posed shots is not easy (I deal with the same thing with Oli!) so we got a ton of candids and I really love how they turned out.

Enjoy this precious family!

So one of the things I loved the most about Katie and Adam’s wedding (besides the lovely couple) were the flowers! They are actually made of paper and were so gorgeous. Katie had them specially made from this Etsy Shop. I love that she added this unique twist to the wedding decor! Katie and Adam’s ceremony was such a sweet time and although the rain didn’t show any signs of letting up, everyone had a great time at the reception.

Katie and Adam, you are both such a blessing to be around. Congrats to you, marriage is going to be so fun!

This year has been crazy for rain, right? I have seen so many Facebook statuses talking about all the rain we are getting and they have now gotten to the point of, ‘enough with the rain, already!’. I think we could all use a little dry weather streak, but I could  definitely argue that rainy seasons can be especially hard on a wedding photographer. I have shot 10 weddings this year, and it has rained at some point in the day at half of them! This can be super intimidating when trying to come up with a Plan B for portraits and creative images and it definitely takes a flexible bride and groom to play along.

So when I arrived at Carrigan Farms, I knew I was going to need my best rainy day Plan B because it was POURING.  Luckily ‘flexible’ is Katie’s middle name and Adam is the most laid back person ever. This turned out to be one of my favorite weddings because we were able to do some awesome creative shots with the rain and Katie and Adam are just so enjoyable to be around. As Katie said at the wedding, if rain on your wedding day means good luck for marriage, they are going to have a pretty easy go of it! Although, I don’t think they are going to need much luck, these two are clearly made for each other.

Enjoy Katie and Adam’s sweet wedding day.

This one is extra special to me. A few weeks ago, I got the chance to run around and take some shots of 2 of our family’s favorite people- “Uh B” (Uncle B) and “Auntis” (Auntie), as Oliver would refer to them. My sister, Amy and her hubby, Brian are expecting their first little one in just a few weeks and our family could not be more overjoyed! They are having a little girl, she will be named Emerson Marie Carter and sometimes nicknamed “Emmie”…. Really, words cannot express how excited I am to squeeze that little baby girl. I am so thankful my sister (and Brian) was able to produce a female since I have failed miserably at it. Don’t get me wrong, I love my boys more than anything (if you follow me on Instagram, you know how obsessed I am with them!), but it’s high time I had a little girl in the family to buy all those amazing Target outfits (that take of 80% of the baby section) for.

Doesn’t Amy look gorgeous as a pregnant lady? I really hope I pulled it off that well, but of course I never felt that way, and neither does she. So leave a comment telling her how good she looks. And if you must, Brian too. 🙂 Enjoy!

I got the opportunity to do a Mini-Session with Lindsay and Hayden and they could not have been any cuter. They are both working their way though UNCC (my Alma-mater, whoop whoop!), have been dating for a few years now, and wanted an In Love session to document this time in their lives. Their sweet pup Leneigh joined us for the fist few shots and was such a cutie. Enjoy this sweet couple!

Mallory and Grant’s reception took place on a beautiful blue sky night. It was so clear as everyone celebrated this couple, just how much they are loved. I am blessed to have been apart of such a special day. Congrats you two!

Mallory and Grant are great. I knew at their engagement session that their wedding day was going to be a breeze because they are just so easy to work with. The big day took place at the beautiful Cedarwood Country Club and we could not have had more perfect weather. Mallory and Grant decided to do a first look and I am so happy they did because we had a ton of time for portraits of just the two of them, which if you ask me, if one of the most important things to capture. I was able to have time with them before the wedding and then even more time after the wedding during sunset. Stay tuned for those images tomorrow!
