Linda & Ross - Lake Johnson Couple Session

Linda & Ross - Lake Johnson Couple Session

I had been wanting to a lake shoot for awhile and when I put the feelers out online I was super excited when Linda (of Linda Creative) reached out. 

And what a beautiful fall morning it was full of fog and a chill in the air. It got me all jazzed for my trip to Seattle in a few weeks. 

Not only are these two adorable - they are so close to celebrating 2 years of marriage, and Linda is the ultimate thrift-er (her entire outfit was under $10 a piece) 

Enjoy this adorable couple session - and try to get excited for fall.

Jacqueline and Eliza's -  Duke Garden's Wedding

Jacqueline and Eliza's - Duke Garden's Wedding

I've never met a couple so positive, happy, and ready to roll with the changes. While most people would have had a meltdown with a torrential downpour two minutes into their ceremony these ladies kept their cool, and even stayed back to make sure their guests found cover before them.

Every person these two come in contact with truly love and care for them immediately due to their positivity and great spirits. I had never cried at a wedding before but Jacqueline and Eliza's wedding day (especially the toasts their friends and family gave brought me to tears) The idea that even a few years ago they wouldn't be allowed to be married in front of their friends and family really hit me. How could anyone not support and love these two amazing women? 

Truly there were so many amazing things about this day that worked perfectly. 

1. We were able to get all their portraits done BEFORE it poured
2. Their ceremony was still perfect and full of laughter and love.
3. A soccer ball was introduced during Eliza's father/daughter dance. 
4. PIE! 
5. SO MUCH DANCING! 

I'm so honored to have been apart of their day and to capture their wedding. I really hope they cherish these images forever and there were so many great photos I couldn't even share all that I wanted to. 

Please enjoy and laugh along with the story of Jacqueline and Eliza.

Sam & Ryan's - Raleigh Courthouse Wedding

Sam & Ryan were married early Friday morning surrounded by close family at the Raleigh Courthouse. (Fun Fact: I was actually a witness at a wedding right before them so I'm getting on a first name basis with Judge Davis) 

The weather was a little hotter than expected but that still didn't stop us from taking a stroll down the warehouse district and grabbing some portraits of the newly married couple! 

I wish Sam and Ryan the best and hope you enjoy this snapshot of their wedding day!

I've known Paige since we were in Middle School. We've spent many a night listening to music, going to shows, and staying up late - but now she'll be staying up for another reason. 7 days ago Hudson Gray Cope came into the world and Paige & Alex became parents. 

I was so happy when they asked me to come over and capture his first week of life in their home along with their pups (Davis and Otis) - Their nursery is my favorite thing & Paige designed it herself. Also peep that gray blanket in the crib i crocheted! (Because I do things too) 

Take a little peek into their home and their new life as parent & welcome Hudson into the world

Chandler & David - Grayson Highlands Engagement

So when I was traveling to Grayson Highlands I decided - why not give away TWO shoots! And I posted about it for days but finally just when I thought all hope was lost- Chandler and David responded. They were hiking all weekend, taking in the beautiful scenery - and were recently engaged! 

We climbed up the pony trail and even though there weren't any ponies (as they were being auctioned off at the fall festival) we still got to take in the leaves changing and get our cardio in. We climbed some rocks, went off the beaten path, and took some awesome photos! 

They are actually getting married at the park next September and I hope these photos get them super excited for an amazing day and if the weather is even a little bit as perfect as it was Sunday they are in for a perfect wedding day.

Cazzie & Caren - Grayson Highland Engagement

This summer I gave away a photo session at Grayson Highlands National Park because well - I wanted to go there and I wanted to take some really awesome photos and I really wanted to see some mini horses (aka Lil Sebastian's) 

Caren aka "Always a Foreigner" was the lucky name to fall out of the hat and it was so convenient because she just happened to get engaged. Since we both have busy schedules it wasn't until the end of September that we could schedule the shoot and I'm so happy we did. 

The leaves were just starting to change and the weather was absolutely perfect which made hiking up the mountain a breeze. And even though they were auctioning off the wild ponies and were not roaming - we ended up seeing three of them right as we were about to leave. Which I have to say made my heart so happy. 

Caren and Cazzie were so easy to talk to and get to know and I'm so glad I got to meet these two and I can't wait to hear about how they decide to wed - whether it's an intimate elopement, an Asheville affair, or an international whirlwind - I hope they choose me to capture it.

Raquel & Ryan - Kure Beach Wedding

Raquel and Ryan are two of the sweetest people I've met this year. They radiate warmth and laughter and love. 

One of my favorite things about their wedding (besides her gorgeous, boho dress) was the fact that they shared a first touch on the beach and shared vows they had written to each other with one another before the ceremony. 

They radiate love and laughter wherever they go and their portraits were a breeze (literally the wind was fierce from Hurricane Irma) 

During their reception friends and family gave toasts and they had a swing dance lesson - where all their guests got to learn the dance moves and swing to old timey tunes! 

I can't wait to see what the future holds for these two - but until then enjoy this blog post!

Lydia & Pradeep - Oaks at Salem Wedding

Lydia & Pradeep - Oaks at Salem Wedding

When Lydia contacted me she told me how important it was to document family. You see Pradeep and Lydia's families had never met before their wedding - as they all traveled from all over to come together for their special day. 

Throughout the day they shared in a multitude of cultural traditions that celebrated both sides of their families. With the impending thunderstorm they decided to have their ceremony under a covered patio which was a great idea because boy did it downpour during their ceremony. 

Luckily - we were able to get a few portraits during their first look before complete darkness took over the evening. 

Pradeep and Lydia are funny and light-hearted and huge Game of Thrones fans (Pradeep spoke Dothraki during their vows) 

Although the weather wasn't perfect their wedding was and I wish them a lifetime of happiness.

Stephanie & Niko's Fort Fisher / NC Aquarium Wedding

Stephanie and Niko were married in a small, intimate ceremony surrounded by family and friends in the garden of the NC Aquarium. They participated in an unity, hand tying ceremony to symbolize their bond to one another for eternity.

Max & Haley - Raleigh Courthouse Wedding

Max & Haley decided to forgo the large wedding and spend their money on a European Honeymoon - and I don't blame them (especially as I stalk their photos on Instagram from their travels around Ireland & Scotland ) 

They gathered a handful of family and headed to the Downtown Raleigh Courthouse for their ceremony before heading to Nash Square for family photos. Then we took a pit stop at Lucette Grace for coffee and macaroons, before finally heading to Historic Moore's Square for portraits. 

They finished the afternoon off at Cafe Luna for lunch - and then seriously got on a plane and flew overseas! How wild! 

I'm glad they let me follow them around for a few hours and capture the day. I can't wait to hear about their travels and I hope these memories last a lifetime!
