Photographing Kendra and Jeff’s breathtaking wedding in Highlands, NC was one of the highlights of last year. I’ll never forget when I walked into the home where all the ladies were gathered, preparing for the day ahead.  Light was pouring in the windows, their blush dresses hanging ready, laughter filling the rooms, and to top it off – they were having their hair and makeup done on the wrap-around porch. I instantly knew I would love this bride and her friends, that I would love this day. I didn’t realize how much, though. I didn’t know that I would cry during their first look, that I would be so inspired by every detail, that I would come to call this couple our friends.

Their love runs so deep. Kendra and Jeff have one of the sweetest loves I’ve ever seen. The way he cared for her, looked at her, admired her – it was moving to capture those moments. (You’ll see what I mean during their first look! I was a mess.) And sweet Kendra just melted every time she hugged Jeff, every time she spoke to him, every time they kissed… it was like they had to be near each other. Their loyalty to one another shines in their relationship; truly nothing is more important in this world than each other.
