2017…whew, what I year! I was just telling a friend yesterday that I think I might be traveled out for a while. That is HUGE coming from me who LOVES traveling, has lived in 4 different countries, and visited to countless places. This year was definitely the year of travel for us as we got to go near and far to photograph some incredible weddings. From Texas to ITALY, from Charlottesville to Charleston, from Asheville to Charlotte, we have loved every minute of it. Well, except the minutes I was missing my babies which is why this winter will be a nice break free of travel.
Nonetheless, it has been an amazing year and I am so thankful.
I have wanted to do a “Best Of” post every year but somehow have never managed to get around to it. I am so excited to finally post one and after looking at all these images, it really does make me feel so proud to see all of the beauty we have captured. A HUGE thank you to my assistant and awesome second shooter (who I affectionately call my ‘right hand’), Makenzie who has put in just as much work if not more than me to make this year successful.
I challenged myself to pick only ONE image from every shoot we did which was extremely difficult, but I love having a little snippet of the year at a glance. We did almost 50 shoots this year and for this mom of 4 boys, who is running a business, homeschooling 1 boy 2-days per week, has 2 in pre-school, and 1 under the age of a year, that is A LOT. I am so thankful to have gotten all this accomplished and delivered some gorgeous sessions to my amazing clients.
Thank you all for trusting us to capture some of your most precious memories year. I am excited to see what 2018 holds.
I can’t believe I am just now sharing some of my gorgeous 2017 weddings. Last year was a wonderful for year for us professionally and personally and I am excited to finally put some of the pretty things we shot out there in the world. read more
I am so excited to share that Cameron and Nolan’s engagement session in the Peach Orchards of South Carolina is featured on the Bustld Charlotte Blog! I love shooting these Peach Orchard sessions and they only come once a year (mid-late March), so let me know if you would like to have your engagement session or family portraits here and we will get it on the calendar.
On a day like today I love to look at some of my summer engagement sessions. They just make me feel a little brighter and warm.
I am just about to deliver Katherine & Ben’s wedding and I am just now posting their engagement session (insert crying emoji!)… This happens every year when the fall rolls around but I am determined to get back on the blogging train this winter and update you all on all the pretty I photographed in 2017. read more
Jason and Jenna’s wedding day was one for the books. There are just some weddings that fit my style completely and this is one of them. I have used their images on much of my promo material and website for a couple of years now. It was just a couple of weeks ago that I realized I never BLOGGED these two. So I’m doing in now almost 2 years later. The passing of time really doesn’t matter because these images are timeless and so it this couple. read more
Thank you so much to the local Charlotte BUSTLD Blog for featuring Jennifer and Bradley’s engagement session last fall!
Thank you so much to Borrowed and Blue for featuring Lauren & Kyle’s wedding day on your blog! read more
There are very few words that describe how much I adore these two. Ariana and Lawrence have become really special to me (and Matt!). We enjoyed shooting their engagement session at The Biltmore last fall and then really got a chance to get to know they at dinner in Asheville after our shoot. We will join them to shoot their wedding in Tuscany, Italy (!?!?!) this fall. I am so thrilled and I can’t imagine how beautiful their big day will be. Be sure to keep on eye on the blog after September! read more
