Sakura Minis | Springtime in Japan

This spring, I had my FIRST EVER series of cherry blossom mini sessions! Of course, they didn’t all go completely according to plan…after some rescheduling, we were able to make sure everyone got stunning photos before the blossoms left forever!

I’m writing this blog post not ONLY to show you some sessions, but to show you WHEN and under what CONDITIONS they were taken. Basically…it doesn’t have to be golden hour with incredible sun to be wonderful. Some of these were taken early in the morning, before golden hour, at twilight, with full sun or even overcast! Despite the different conditions, they all ended up beautiful and unique, just like the sakura trees themselves.

The Hancock Wedding

Courtney and Nick's wedding was definitely one for the ages! Neuse Breeze provided the perfect backdrop for this gorgeous spring ceremony and reception. The entire day was filled with love, laughter, excitement…and partying till the sun came up.

It's impossible to name a favorite moment, so I'll name a few: when Nick "adopted" Courtney's cat and when they read their notes to each other; the traditional sword arch; when Marcus, the groom's son, had a special musical request; the sparkler exit and of course, all the emotion and overflowing love from their family and friends.

March 31, 2018 was nothing short of amazing, and I wish the brand-new Mr. and Mrs. Hancock a lifetime of happiness with their sweet little family! Congratulations, you two!
