Y’all, I don’t know when I’ve spent a more joy-filled Saturday as  I did at Layne and Zach’s wedding last week. Oh my goodness, what a beautiful day! Layne and Zach are not only a super sweet couple, but have the best taste! I was so excited to shoot at The Cabin Ridge. It’s such […]

If you want to meet someone who is joyful, driven, an overachiever, smart, and who has a servant’s heart – it’s Sam. Some of you may remember when I did her senior pictures a couple years ago. After Sam graduated from high school – including a course in phlebotomy – she went on a nine-month-long mission […]

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 […]

Every time I photograph my cousins, they get a little easier. I get a few more smiles, more faces looking at the camera. Perhaps it’s because they’re getting older. Could be they’re getting used to me. Whatever it is, this is definitely our best shoot yet! I’ve been taking pictures of this family for maybe […]

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. […]

When Amy and I got together to do our headshot swap, of course she took some pictures of me. Which was fabulous! I needed an update, per usual. We had such a great time and I love the pictures she took of me! I’m sure you’ll agree that she’s quite talented. Enjoy a few of […]

About a month ago, I had the privilege to meet up with Amy Fullam from Wonder Love Weddings. We met for cupcakes and got to talk shop. It was lovely! I really enjoyed meeting Amy and getting to know her, finding out how she got into photography and such. Amy’s a real traveler, and has […]
