JADE AND CORY ARE GETTING MARRIED! January wouldn’t have been my first choice for an engagement shoot, but they needed pictures for their save-the-dates for their WEDDING in OCTOBER! So we decided on Max Patch – a bald mountain on the TN border, about an hour north of Asheville. Max Patch is supposed to 1) […]

I literally cannot believe it is time for this post already! I’m not sure if I want 2019 to be over yet. This has been the best year I’ve ever had since starting my business in 2016 and God has blessed it beyond what I thought was possible! Back when 2019 was just beginning, I […]

Oh my goodness, I am so excited to finally share this post (and these pictures)! Beware – it’s going to be very long. 😀  Most of you had no idea I was in a relationship, which was my intent – I was planning to surprise everyone if I got engaged! I am very, VERY happy […]

Y’all, I am so excited to share this lovely shoot today! I had so much fun with Matt and Morgan last Sunday at the Botanical Gardens, and I’m sure you’ll agree that they look pretty cute together. 🙂 Matt and Morgan met a couple years ago on Tinder! Isn’t that so cool? They hit it […]

Y’all, I am so excited to share this senior session today! Hannah and Cameron both graduated this past year and decided to get pictures done together. They’ve been together for two years! This sweet couple met in middle school, and despite going to two different high schools, they ended up together. 🙂 I think the […]

Meet Kenny and Callie – one of the sweetest couples I’ve worked with. Kenny contacted me a couple weeks ago, telling me that he was coming to NC and wanted to propose to his girlfriend. Could I possibly shoot his proposal? It was a tight time frame, as he was planning to pop the question […]

I’m not sure how I end up with so many sweet, fun couples. John and Jessica were certainly no exception! From the start, this couple was enthusiastic, adventuresome, joyful, and all-in-all, people you genuinely enjoy being with. John and Jessica are originally from Arizona where they met in MIDDLE SCHOOL! They were friends all through […]

Meet Hannah and Michael: possibly the cutest newlywed couple ever. My heart smiled when I heard their story – they met over fifteen years ago as kids in Hannah’s mom’s homeschool choir. “Even then, I noticed him,” said Hannah. They started dating when she was sixteen. A few years passed. Everyone held their breaths, waiting. […]

It was seven years ago in January. I remember sitting in the audience, watching Rebecca and John being united for life. It was a momentous occasion – not only for them, but for me. It was the first wedding I’d ever been to. I don’t remember too much about their wedding because I was just […]
