Jenny + Kyle | Richmond, VA | Engaged

When I first chatted with Jenny it was over the phone and for almost an hour as we randomly found out of many little connections we had – like I am photographing a wedding of one of her colleagues from ECU and that her fiance actually lives in Richmond right down the road from me…it is such a small world! It’s not that often that I meet with just the groom, but since she lived up in Pennsylvania and he was here in Richmond it just made sense. I was bummed she wouldn’t be there for me to meet her, but I had fun meeting Kyle over a yummy lunch and hearing about the two of them and their wedding plans. Jenny is so sweet and graceful – and it’s so clear that Kyle adores her. We had the perfect early morning engagement session while Jenny was visiting Richmond earlier this summer. How adorable are these two?
Congratulations Kyle and Jenny! I am so excited to be headed up to Pennsylvania next June!

Brie | Chapel Hill, NC | Maternity

One of my favorite things about the wedding industry are the people I meet and friends I make along the way. The wedding industry is what first introduced me to Brie…she is one super talented make-up artist who does work for film, print and brides of course! It’s always so much fun getting to walk into a bride’s suite and see Brie making them even more lovely. Brie and Michael are expecting a little boy…TODAY. She is in the hospital as I type this post….SO.EXCITED.FOR.THEM!

Isn’t she seriously the most adorable and stylish mama-to-be?
Congratulations Brie and Michael! What a wonderful day it is! Cannot wait to see photos of your little one!

Britney + Kevin | Raleigh, NC | Engaged

I first chatted with Britney a few months ago about their Summer 2013 wedding – it was one of those chats when I got off the phone, I knew they would be an amazing couple to work with! We had a gorgeous, sunny summer evening for their session around NC State. It was a bit warm, but these two kept smiling and showed their love to the camera.

So pretty! Cannot wait to see Britney on her wedding day!
Both Kevin and Britney were Varsity swimmers for NC State so we of course and had to sneak a few shots of them at the pool :) What a fun time I had with you two! Congratulations!

Southern Weddings Celebrates Miss Emily | Bridal Shower

I was so thrilled when asked to document this surprise bridal shower the Southern Weddings ladies were planning for their very own Creative Director, Emily Ayer. There was such a talented group of ladies who came together to make every detail perfect! The lovely Nicole of SW spearheaded this surprise with the help Erin of Erin McLean Events, Heidi (Director of Catering) of The Carolina Inn and Amber of Amber Housley.

Emily has a love of miniature things…so just like that these ladies planned a wonderful shower with all things mini :) Take a peek at the full recap of Emily’s Mini-Inspired Bridal Shower on the Southern Weddings Blog :)

Congratulations Emily on your upcoming wedding! What a wonderful celebration this was! You have so many amazing friends who love you :)

Sweet Tilly Pup | Chapel Hill, NC | Lifestyle

Being asked by past couples to document their newest milestones in life is such a humbling moment. Just a couple months ago one of my sweet 2011 brides, Mallory, shared news that they had a new family addition I needed to photograph for them…I remember being at my desk thinking – Oh yay! They’re pregnant! She needs maternity and new born photo bookings! –¬†That message was shortly followed up by a photo of their oh-so-cute puppy…at only 7 weeks old. I knew there was a reason I loved Mallory and Chilly so much :)

I know I am little pup crazy, but I love these next two photos of the three of them..Congratulations on y’alls new furry child ;)

Adrienne + Matt | Charlotte, NC | Engaged

To catch the gorgeous morning light we decided to meet at 6 a.m. for their engagement shoot. Adrienne suggested we meet at a Starbucks…THANK YOU!! At that hour we all needed a little pick-me-up to kick-off their session.¬†Adrienne and Matt have this happy energy that is infectious. The entire session was full of laughs and even a little tour of the area they will be getting married! Thanks for such a fun morning!

Looking forward to y’alls September Wedding!!
