Getting to photograph someone’s wedding is, of course, one of the biggest honors ever. The fact that a couple trusts us to photograph their wedding day is something I’ll never take for granted. And oftentimes, our couples also hire us to capture their engagement photos for them. I always tell people that engagement sessions are […]

I’m that mom. Isla is only a few weeks away from turning two, and I’m finally sharing her cake smash from her first birthday. If I used emojis on here now would be a perfect time for a face palm one. So, I’m just going to pull out the most cliche statement ever…better late than […]

Officially obsessed with these two and their Raleigh film engagement photos. Their story is so, so beautiful and it’s an honor to be part of it. We hopped out of our cars and immediately began talking. As a photographer, it’s really nice when I can connect with a couple that easily. It makes their whole […]

All of those combine together to make a magical evening. Doing this Wake Forest maternity mini session is definitely a highlight […]

I usually don’t like college campuses for engagement portraits. There’s tons of people, students are always in the way, and it’s hard to get in a rhythm when people are stopping to congratulation you every few minutes. Super sweet, but extremely distracting…BUT…Duke engagement photos break the rules in a good way! Duke University’s campus is […]

Sutherland weddings are a favorite around here. The staff, the venue, the fact that it’s 5 minutes from my house! We love them so much and absolutely love photographing them, especially on film like this one! There is nothing I didn’t like about this day. The bride’s taste is impeccable. From the intimacy of their […]

Overall, I would say I’m not a very fearful person. Stressed and anxious occasionally, maybe haha. But not very fearful of much.  Except snakes.  They are my downfall.  Paralyzes me with fear. Thank goodness, being a portrait photographer in Wake Forest, I have only come across one snake and that was one in semi-hibernation and […]

When I met these two, kids were still off in the distant future.  We had a wonderful session that was so much fun!  Then we got the email that they are expecting and we were over the moon excited for them!!  The excitement only increased when they wanted to do gender reveal photos.  I had […]
