I absolutely loved being Julia & Cody’s Historic Wakefield Barn wedding photographer. Everything was perfect in every way. It was supposed to be one of the hottest days of the summer, and yes it was hot, but we had a lovely cloud cover and breeze that made it bearable! The flowers were stunning, her dress […]

Alright moms (and any other adult thats ever been around kids) – if we’re all honest, we have at least a little sense of dread when we think about doing pictures with our toddlers.  I have it and I have access to a photographer when ever I want a session (looking at you A.J. haha!).  […]

I love how engagement photos can be a representation of a couple’s style and relationship! Elizabeth & Brian’s session is a perfect example of this. Their session was so them. When Elizabeth and I were first talking about their engagement photos, she had the cutest idea for their session. She wanted to do their engagement […]

We shoot a lot of weddings around the Raleigh area, but I always love when we get to travel for a wedding! This Kingsmill Resort wedding is a fun one, and it was so great to be back at this beautiful venue in Williamsburg, Virginia! The last time I was in Williamsburg was for Katrina […]

Summer season typically slows down for family sessions.  I can’t blame them, it’s hot and sticky outside during Raleigh summers!! This sweet family knew how important it was to capture this special time as a new family of 5 though!  They scheduled a Joyner Park family session even in the heat of a July summer […]

This is the most dreamy fall garden wedding that any fall bride needs to see! It’s full of rich fall tones with bursts of color everywhere you look. The bride, being a former wedding planner, used her bright personality and created this ethereal fall scene. From the floral arch for the ceremony to the romantic […]
