Shelby + Hristo

After a super busy weekend in L.A., it was so refreshing to get back to the slower pace of coastal North Carolina. My first session back was with Shelby + Hristo and GOODNESS they blew me away with their love and beauty!

Beach sessions are some of my favorites, and this was no exception. We kicked it off in some greenery, where me and Shelby bonded over our Harry Potter tattoos (those three little stars have so much meaning!) and then hit the beach to run around in some waves!

I don't think I've ever had a couple that laughed quite as much as these two…especially when they got down and dirty in the water! This couple was up for anything I threw their way, whether it was trekking through the sound or lying down in the surf.

It was a blast to hang out with y'all, Shelby + Hristo, and I can't wait for your April wedding!! I know it'll be every bit as beautiful as you guys.  

Marta + Adam

From the revolutionary-era mansions to the Cape Fear boardwalks, downtown Wilmington has my heart. Exploring this beautiful place is always better when I get to hang with even more beautiful couples like Marta and Adam!

These two came all the way from Charlotte for our engagement session, and they were so fun! They laughed, joked, and absolutely could not take their eyes (and hands 😉) off each other the entire time. Thanks so much for hanging out with me, y'all—I can't wait to see your incredible wedding!

Arianna + Paul

It's been a whirlwind of a month, and I love saying that I've been busier than ever (really though, it doesn't feel like work when you love what you do so much!) 

Arianna and Paul are one of my gorgeous 2018 couples, and our early morning was spent at The Arboretum in Wilmington. I'd never shot there before, and I have to say I am OBSESSED! 

These two are seriously so much fun, and their laid-back style made this session such a breeze. It was so easy to capture their smiles because they were laughing and having fun the entire time! 

I can not waaaaait for your wedding, y'all! Why can't next summer be here already?!

Melissa + Dustin

I always love shooting in new places with my amazing clients, and Sunday evening was NO exception! Melissa, Dustin and I explored New Bern for the first time and were all wowed by how beautiful it was. Of course, this backdrop would not have been the same without such a sweet, beautiful, IN LOVE couple!!

Melissa and Dustin get married in just a few weeks, so I am pumped we were able to schedule a session in time for them! They were a blast to hang out with...and I seriously can't wait for their gorgeous wedding later this month!

Congrats, y'all!

Macey + Judson

Two sweet friends of mine got engaged this weekend, and I was lucky enough to be able to capture it! Bear with me here...y'all are in for a story.

I met Macey when I was 5 years old. We were on the same soccer team, the Lil' Bears, and I believe we won exactly 0 games. After that season, we never kept in touch until we met again playing tennis at our high school! Macey and I both decided to attend Texas A&M for college, and we were roommates our first two years there.

Since we were roommates, and brand-new to the beautiful land of College Station, we rode the bus to class together. Five years ago, I was sitting in between Macey and some random kid with a haircut indicative of a Corps of Cadets fish. He recognized her from class, was very smooth, and asked about their math homework. They got to talking...and that's how Macey and Judson became Macey and Judson.

When he proposed, Judson set up a small table complete with beautiful flowers (Macey's a florist, so it's only fitting!), a couple photos of the two of them, and a bible embossed with Macey's new name. After arriving, they sat down and prayed together...then, Jud popped the question! 

That wasn't the end of the surprises; a couple hours later, all their friends and family gathered in Downtown Bryan and threw a beautiful party for them! Flowers, custom cookies (that were way, WAY too delicious), Nothing Bundt Cakes (owned by Macey's cousins in College Station), and a photo backdrop truly made the event complete.  

I simply love these two, and watching them grow together in their faith, and in life, has been so incredible. I can not wait to see you two become man and wife. Here's to five years, and so so many more in the future. Congratulations, y'all!
