December 10th is a special date to us. It’s the anniversary of our very first date, and we got to celebrate 16 years together at one of the loveliest winter weddings ever! We couldn’t have imagined a better place to be than at the Country Club of NC with Hannah & Jason. Watching the two […]

If you ask me what my favorite session of Carter’s is, I’ll say this extended family portrait session every time. Part of it is because I just love this family. They’ve been a part of my life as long as Kyle has and I love that! They’ve watched us grow up and supported us every […]

Lindsey and John came to me with this idea they’d been rolling around in their heads. They were soon to be moving out of their current apartment, and wanted to know if we could take some lifestyle engagement portraits to commemorate their first home together. I think they thought it was kind of a crazy […]

Finishing up Ada’s big girl room has been the most amazing project! I want to move in there myself!!! I went into it having no clue what I wanted. All I knew was we had this vintage bed frame that’s been in my family for a long time, and I kind of sort of wanted floral […]

Looking back over the pictures from this Wilmington wedding last fall, made me remember how much I love this day! Katherine has such style, and it reflected in every inch of her wedding. From her stunning ruffled wedding gown to the sparkly Kate Spade Shoes. All the way into the coastal inspired reception decor complete […]

Did you know that here at AJDP, we actually offer mini sessions in Wake Forest year round?! It’s something we started offering last year, when we brought Carter on as our team family photographer. With both of us having kids, we realized that little ones really can’t handle much more than 25ish minutes. They can focus long […]

Maybe one day I’ll get to add Arizona Photographer to my resume for real, for now I’m happy with getting to shoot in the desert a little for United 2016! Shooting on the western side of the country, especially in the desert, is completely different than here in North Carolina. For one, the light is […]

I am loving these Raleigh engagement photos so much. How can I not when there’s a dog named Taco?! I mean seriously. Lauren and Will are pretty cute themselves, but TACO!! He kind of steals the show. Sorry you two, but that’s just the way it is! Dogs have a way of doing that, especially […]

Coming off of a Darling Wedding Workshop, is always the most amazing feeling. It’s so much more than a photography workshop. It’s hard to put into words the experience that is Darling. This most recent one was so much more than I could have ever expected. My heart is still on cloud nine, and I […]

This post is one of my favorites from Carter’s first fall season as a Wake Forest family photographer! I love these pictures so much because they’re two totally different types of families. One with toddler aged kids, who are silly, full of life, typically toddlers. The other with older kids, who don’t need tricks to get […]
