The Ward Wedding

Susannah + Stephen are married, and oh man were all the sweat and tears getting here worth it! Belle Vue was such a beautiful ceremony space, The Terraces at Sir Tyler provided the perfect last-second reception venue, and every. little. piece. of the wedding was stunning.

With only 50 guests, the Wards had their closest family and friends with them, and the love was felt in every part of the wedding. From getting ready to the last dance at the reception, the emotion was overwhelming.

I’m so excited to share these photos with you, and I can’t wait to finish this entire gallery! Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Ward!


Mr. + Mrs. Thomas: A Biltmore Wedding

Another day, another stunning wedding. Seriously…how on earth did I get so lucky to have all these amazing, creative clients?! I traveled all the way to Asheville, North Carolina to photograph Kaylie + Kevin at the incredible, unbeatable Biltmore Estate. We had a jam-packed weekend, complete with a rehearsal, welcome party, and the actual wedding which lasted until 2 a.m.! 

Every detail was meticulous, every piece curated and arranged to perfection. You'll see hand-painted pieces (including the Thomas's pups popping champagne), rustic decor and elegant light fixtures. Kaylie + Kevin truly incorporated their lives and personalities into this wedding and they shone through!

Your wedding was truly one for the books; thanks, Mr. + Mrs. Thomas, for inviting me along on this adventure. Congratulations, 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 Yowler-Yang Wedding

It is actually IMPOSSIBLE to not be in a good mood when you're at Airlie Gardens in Wilmington. The smell, the sight of all the incredible greenery and florals, the sounds of nature all around you; on March 28, it was only outdone by Joanna and Dan's wedding ceremony. 

The entire day was beautiful, the sun and warmth arriving on a Thursday immediately following weeks of dreary weather! The Lord of the Rings music and details were beautiful—the little candles, earrings and even the vows were inspired by the trilogy.

There wasn't a dry eye throughout the entire evening, and every person at the small celebration meant an incredible amount to Joanna and Dan. Capturing this kind of once-in-a-lifetime love was wonderful, and I know these two will live the best life together. 

Congratulations, y'all!

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!

The Suhrland Wedding

One thing I love about summer is summer weddings on the beach, complete with sand between the toes, tiki torches and beautiful couples in love!

Noel and Anthony tied the knot on August 5, and the rain left the beach just in time for their ceremony. Tears were shed, rings were exchanged, and the officiant blew on a conch shell to officially announce this new couple to the world! 

It was such a lovely, intimate wedding with close family and friends, and I wish you the best as you live your lives together. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Suhrland! 

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.
