The Baker Wedding

Rachel + Bradley tied the knot at Duplin Winery just a few weeks after Hurricane Florence devastated the Carolinas. Luckily, the venue was relatively unscathed…and provided a stunning backdrop for their wedding day!

The Bakers were unique in this day and age. They decided to forego the first look and jump right into the action during the ceremony. The twinkling lights overhead made the entire space magical, and portraits outside in the vineyard made it all just seem like a real-life fairytale (I mean…even the cake had glitter on it, y’all).

I’m so happy we were all able to come together in the wake of disaster (this is the kindest, sweetest couple and they deserve every bit of joy!) and celebrate the new Mr. and Mrs. Baker. Congrats, y’all!

The LaCroix Wedding

No exaggeration…this wedding was perfection. Kat + Dan are like, super in love; the boho theme weaved throughout their wedding was executed flawlessly; the cake was amazing; and the dance floor was never empty!

There were three first looks: one with Kat's father, her brothers, and her soon-to-be husband. There were tears. There was a tiger mask (this wedding truly had everything).

They even showed their love for pups by naming each table (instead of numbers) after a close friend or family member's beloved doggos. The day, of course, couldn't have been possible without all the amazing vendors that lent a hand (listed below for y'all!)

Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. LaCroix!

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!

The Lucroy Wedding

Sunday marked not only the start of a brand-new year, but the start of a lifetime of love for Annie and David!

It was 20 degrees outside (it felt even colder with that river wind!), but these two stuck it out all night. Some highlights of the wedding were the amazing personal details, a sparkler exit to remember, and of course…Heckler, Annie and David's dog, starring as a groomsman!

This wedding was amazing, and the perfect way to end 2017. Happy New Year, everyone…cheers!

Crystal + David

When I first met Crystal and David, they told me stories about how they met on a boat and got engaged on a boat, so of course, we had to incorporate a marina into their engagement session! We walked around this beautiful location, and although we were getting devoured by mosquitos, they could not keep smiles off their faces. They love living life together, and it shows in everything they do!

There's a reason I love weddings so much—meeting awesome couples, getting to know them and recording the most important moments of their lives is such a privilege. Every one of my couples is so different from the last, and these two are no exception.

They're truly a one-of-a-kind, as their union won't be limited to just the two of them. Crystal and David already have a beautiful family with two sweet girls, and it was amazing getting to capture them all together at the tail end of our session.

I'm so glad to finally be able to blog all these photos and share this little fam with the world—congrats to all of you! I can't wait for your wedding next year!

 

 

 

Kaylie + Kevin

First off, I just have to say…every single one of my couples are AMAZING. I am so lucky to be able to capture these love-filled moments and working with Kaylie and Kevin was no exception. We met at their home and I was able to shoot them in their natural habitat with their pups and gorgeous red barn! 

From there we moved to a ranch where we hung out with their handsome boy Hang On Sloopy (or Sloopy for short). I've never had a session with a horse before so this was such a fun, unique experience. 

Congratulations on your engagement and upcoming wedding…next spring can not come soon enough! I can't wait to capture your big day! 

Side note to all my clients…I will always encourage having your sweet animals along for your session!! I absolutely love creatures of all shapes and sizes and could never say no :)
