Marie and Wade Durham, NC Film Wedding

Marie and Wade Durham, NC Film Wedding
You guys, I wish I was a guest at this wedding. It's a rare thing for me to feel this way, but here are my reasons: This couple. I could forreall just hang out with them and be their friends. The food! The food was just so delicious. The bridal party. Yes, it's the largest bridal party I've ever photographed (almost 40 people). I was nervous, but by the end of [...]

Marie and Wade Carolina Inn Rehearsal Dinner

Marie and Wade Carolina Inn Rehearsal Dinner
In all my 9+ years of wedding photography, never has there ever been a flash mob at a rehearsal dinner... until now. Marie and Wade's rehearsal dinner was full of toasts that made us all cry, that re-lived some hilarious memories, and that encouraged their marriage more than anything else. It was amazing. But the last toast took the cake. A sweet bridesmaid took th[...]

Katie and Ryan Chapel Hill, NC Film Wedding

Katie and Ryan Chapel Hill, NC Film Wedding
The month before Katie and Ryan's wedding we talked through their timeline and all I could think about was how fun their wedding would be! Katie shared with me that all of their wedding guests would be traveling from out of town, so they wanted them to enjoy themselves. Their goal of their wedding was for it to be a fun and relaxing time for all of their friends and f[...]

Lauren and Ben Chapel Hill, NC Film Wedding

Lauren and Ben Chapel Hill, NC Film Wedding
I will forever remember this wedding as one of those miraculously-avoid-the-rain wedding days. My little photographer heart could not have been happier! Let me back up and say that Lauren and Ben are some of the kindest, most gracious people I've ever worked with. Being that they are both attorneys, I knew they would be incredibly sharp people. But moments into the[...]

Laura and Tommy Carolina Inn Film Wedding

Laura and Tommy Carolina Inn Film Wedding
I feel like I am writing about two of my dearest friends when I talk about Laura and Tommy. From the moment Laura came into the studio, I knew we were going to click and so enjoy going through the season of planning her wedding together. Laura is so incredibly kind; she is always putting others before herself and has the best interest of others at the fore front of he[...]

Emily and Bob Angus Barn Film Wedding

Emily and Bob Angus Barn Film Wedding
If you know Emily and Bob, you know that they love their people. It is so evident in the way that they live their life and their wedding day was no different. It was important to them, to spend as much time with their friends and family who had come from many miles away or just a couple to celebration their union. As their photographer, I loved watching them interact [...]

Kathryn and Ryan Angus Barn Film Wedding

Kathryn and Ryan Angus Barn Film Wedding
Kathryn and Ryan met on the World Race, and I knew from the start they were adventurers. I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to photograph a couple who is so relaxed and so adventuresome... at the same time. I know that might sound strange, but it's true! They love the outdoors, they love hiking, they explored Alaska on their honeymoon, he proposed in Thailand, and[...]

Hannah and Daniel Sutherland Film Wedding

Hannah and Daniel Sutherland Film Wedding
The weather forecast for this day was not looking good. I bet after looking at these pictures you wouldn't believe me when I say that the week leading up to this day, they were calling for one hundred percent chance of rain. What we got instead was quite the opposite. It was a gorgeous day and it did rain, but not until after sunset when we were all tucked under the p[...]

Andi and Jason Film Waterfront Wedding

Andi and Jason Film Waterfront Wedding
As I mentioned in their engagement session post, Andi and Jason have such a deep love for their family. However, it was not until their wedding day that I got to see just how much these two mean to all of their family and friends as well. Every person in attendance that day held such a special place in the hearts of Andi and Jason, but equally you could see the impact[...]

Lauren and Ian Highgrove Film Wedding

Lauren and Ian Highgrove Film Wedding
There was something so different about Lauren and Ian's wedding day. They are high school sweethearts and have been dating for almost ten years. This day was a long time coming and it was a sweet celebration of their love. While most weddings are a combination of the groom's closest friends and family, and the bride's closet friends and family, this wedding was differ[...]
