Cara and Andrew’s summer wedding day was such a sweet day. These two had people fly in from all over the U.S. to come celebrate and you could just feel the love throughout the day. The Charlotte City Club was the perfect Uptown setting for this stylish couple. I love so many aspects about their wedding details and their send-off was completely adorable so don’t miss that! Thank you, Cara and Andrew for allowing me to be apart of your most special day, I love your images so much! read more
With Spring just around the corner I thought I would take the time to share an editorial feature that I had the opportunity to shoot for Carolina Bride for their Spring 2016 issue. I hoped to share this MUCH earlier than now, but once the issue came out, I was in full blown wedding season and it just never happened… So now is just as good a time as any! read more
When I met with Patricia in May of last year, over a year out from her Sept 2016 wedding, I knew from the beginning that she was a bride that I had to work with. Her style fit with mine perfectly, and I loved that beautiful details mattered to her while also being very type A and organized. Just like me! Patricia and Devin’s wedding was soft and airy and so down to earth. I loved every part of it. We got to photograph their bride and groom portraits in the best light of the day and they have turned out to be some of my all-time favorites. Thank you to Lauren with Head Over Heels Events for making this day run so smoothly! read more
Natalia & Richie’s wedding day was nothing short of amazing. In addition to the the fact that these two are kind of the most beautiful, they are so incredibly sweet and down to earth. Natalia’s details were stunning (that bolero she is wearing? LOVE) and The Ballantyne Hotel pulled off such a classy wedding reception. It was a sweet time to have all of Richie’s family and all of Natalia’s family together, some meeting for the first time since many of Natalia’s family members came from Spain. I feel so honored to have been apart of such a special day. read more
I really can’t say enough about these two beautiful people. Becky and Brendan were such a joy to work with and get to know. I knew this wedding was going to be great the day I met with Becky and I saw how down to earth yet organized she was. Boy, did she blow me away with her wedding design! Thank so to the amazing Ashton and Paris at Whitehead Manor for helping to make this day go perfectly. read more
Katy and Brad have got me hooked on the brunch wedding! Everything about this wedding was absolutely beautiful and delicious. I mean seriously, bacon and french toast is a welcomed treat in our house any time of day. Katy put so much time and effort into every detail of this day and it was an absolute joy to photograph. That being said, one of my favorite parts of the day had nothing to do with the details. Katy and Brad’s First Look was so natural and sweet. (See below) It is clear how much these two love each other and how happy they were to be getting married. That is why I do this job. Even after shooting dozens of weddings, those moments still make me tear up. Please enjoy their gorgeous day and if you are a future bride of mine, take note of the brunch wedding-inspiration featured here. (wink wink)
I did not meet Lauren and Kyle in person until their wedding day because they are living in Arizona, but after chatting with them over the phone it felt like we had known each another for years. These two are just so down to earth. Lauren wanted to have her wedding in her home state of NC, so they worked hard to plan this wedding with so many beautiful details from many miles away. It was my first time shooting at Little River Vineyards and I loved every inch of of the space. I also loved the emphasis Lauren put on florals as well as the incredibly beautiful dress! We got some amazing portraits of these two, some of my favorites to-date. read more
When we pulled up to the the Rose Hill Plantation on Alex & Mike’s 70-degree wedding day, I knew it was going to be an amazing. Located just outside of Raleigh in Nashville, NC this venue is everything a bride would want with a style that ranges from elegant to rustic and everything in between. It was the perfect fit for Alex and Mike whose wedding really embraced that soft elegant but slightly rustic style. These two were a joy to spend the day with. There was not a doubt about how much they love each other and how excited they were to be married to one another that day. read more
Katie-Kelly and Tyler’s wedding day was the kick-off wedding to our Charlotte wedding season this year and I could not have imagined a better start to the year. I have adored these two since their engagement session and I am so thrilled with how their day turned out. There were so many moments in this day that made me tear-up which is pretty hard to do since I attend about 20 weddings per year. I LOVE KK’s style. Everything about it, and because of that, this post got a little long. This was my first wedding of 3 at The Whitehead Manor this year and I am so happy to be shooting at this venue so much. It is gorgeous with so many photo-spots and the ladies that run it are unmatched. Thank you Paris for putting on such a great day! Full list of wedding vendors are at the bottom of this post.
KK & Tyler, you know how much I adore you two. Thank you for letting me be apart of the best day of your lives. Please keep in touch!
One thing that comes up pretty quickly when people get to know me is that I spent 3 years living in the Middle East after college. The majority of that time was spent living and Lebanon and it is no secret that this country is very near and dear to my heart. I was interviewed in the recent issue of Carolina Bride and one of the questions asked was, “If you could share a meal with anyone, who would it be?” While many people would answer a famous person or maybe a beloved author or musician, I answered for all my friends from my time in Lebanon to be in one room at the same time. Since leaving Beirut in 2008 many of us have scattered around the U.S. and the world. What I wouldn’t give to have us all back together again. read more
