The Shearl Wedding

Jenna and I first met when I was photographing her bridesmaid Courtney’s wedding (go check out the Hancock wedding while you’re here!) We met for a couple of brews and immediately hit it off—I knew then that this wedding was going to be a party for the ages.

First off, Ironclad Brewery is the coolest: the twinkling lights strung through the rafters, the humongous ceilings, and the exposed brick made it a downtown dream. The florals from Designs by Dillon were, of course, perfection. The people, though, were the best part—Jenna, Michael and their friends and family were some of the most kind, fun people you will ever meet.

Honestly, I don’t think I could possibly express how in love with this wedding I was. I am just so excited for Jenna + Michael to spend the rest of their lives together!

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Shearl!

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!


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!

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 :)

 

 

 

 

Lucie + Jon

I seriously LOVE exploring new places, especially with a couple as fun and adventurous as Lucie + Jon!! We hiked all over Fort Fisher; climbing into little dens, crawling over rocks, and getting slammed by waves. 

These two were absolutely unphased walking through the wilderness in their bare feet, jumping right into whatever idea popped into my head.

Spending the evening with this couple was a blast. From start to finish, Lucie + Jon were laughing and you could see their love so so clearly. Thanks so much for an awesome session, you two—and congrats on your engagement!!

The Farmer Wedding

Saturday evening, Lindsey Clowers and Luke Farmer finally got married!! They held an intimate ceremony on the beach (only around a dozen guests!), had their reception on their beach house porch and let's be real y'all...this wedding was as fun, incredible and full of love as a wedding with 200 guests.

Lindsey walked down the aisle to "Goodnight Julia" from the show Cowboy Bebop (can I get a shout out from my fellow nerds over here??) and there wasn't a dry eye in the house. The love these two share is so special and unique; it's hard to find someone who matches you perfectly, and Luke and Lindsey have definitely found it! 

Thanks so much for letting me share in your day, Mr. and Mrs. Farmer, and I wish you an amazing future together. Congratulations, y'all!
