Tidwell Family Raleigh, NC Film Session

Tidwell Family Raleigh, NC Film Session
Stephanie, the beautiful mama in these photographs, has been the brilliant designer behind my home’s refresh. Not only that, but she is a lifelong friend of mine - we grew up going on vacations together since our parents were in business together. I have been so inspired by this woman and her family. She’s the kind of person you are just drawn to because of her joy, h[...]

Patrone Family Film Session

Patrone Family Film Session
I have some serious love for the Patrone family! Their wedding was one of the most unique weddings I've ever photographed, and to see them now with their sweet baby girl just lights up my heart. Could you think of a cuter name than Poppy? It is truly the perfect fit for her vibrant little personality! Just like us, the Patrones' firstborn was a little girl who look[...]

Stevie Fitzpatrick Film Newborn Session

Stevie Fitzpatrick Film Newborn Session
Right after I arrived to the Fitzpatrick's home, we spent some time remembering and laughing about Stevie's grand entrance into the world. Goodness, I'll never forget it! It was so sweet to have some time with Ford, Jenn and baby Stevie, and it took me back to so many memories of her big sister Evelyn's newborn session. Yet at the same time, there's something sweet an[...]

Marie and Wade Chapel Hill Film Engagement Session

Marie and Wade Chapel Hill Film Engagement Session
You guys... this couple! I can't even tell you how much I already love them. Is it okay for me to have a crush on a couple? Because I totally do. Marie and Wade are pure fun, they are beautiful people, they are incredibly gracious and polite, and they really, really love each other. I honestly was a little sad when their engagement session was over, because I wanted t[...]

Kathryn and Ryan Film Engagement Session

Kathryn and Ryan Film Engagement Session
Every time I went running on the greenway behind my house, I dreamt about doing an engagement session back there, because the light and setting is so stunning. When I asked Kathryn if she and Ryan had any special places in mind for their engagement session, she simply said she wanted something natural and wooded to go along with the rustic feel of their wedding. She t[...]

Love Preserved Behind the Scenes

Love Preserved Behind the Scenes
There are few things more beautiful than the North Carolina countryside. Fields full of growing crops, spring trees all in bloom, and not to mention the sweetest old couple who took "southern hospitality" to a whole new level. It was a day filled with lots of hustle and bustle from each of the amazing vendors along with some good front porch conversations. And we can'[...]

Taylor and Chris Asheville Film Wedding

Taylor and Chris Asheville Film Wedding
The moment I stepped onto the beautiful mountain estate where this wedding celebration was held, my breath was taken away. I wish I could take you by the hand right now and lead you through the secret passage ways that led from one garden to another, to show you the historic home nestled on the side of the mountain, to let you feel the cool summer air that can only be[...]

DIY Wrapped Vases with Rebecca Rose Creative

DIY Wrapped Vases with Rebecca Rose Creative
From Becca: This project is a fun way to add a little metallic zest to your wedding or party tabletop. Since we were using gold flatware and going for a more playful and contemporary take on a traditional tried and true color palette, adding a little gold wire to our otherwise simple glass floral vessels helps pull it all together in a way that is unique and unexpec[...]

Nancy’s Maternity Session

Nancy's Maternity Session
From Callie: I will never forget the moment when Will and Nancy told me that she was pregnant. They had been out of the studio for majority of my working day and as I was about to leave for the day, Will came in and said those daunting words "Nancy and I need to talk to you about something." I was a nervous wreck and for sure thought I was getting fired. Thoughts[...]
