Garden Party | Weddings Unveiled Magazine | Published

So thrilled to finally share the news that images from an inspiration shoot I photographed back in late March was just published in the beautiful 2012 Summer Issue of Weddings Unveiled Magazine

We were beyond excited after hearing that our shoot was selected a couple months ago – waiting to reveal these images was the hard part! I am so grateful to have worked with such a talented group of ladies on this shoot. Janice of Bellwether Events dreamed up this Garden Party using children’s story, James and the Giant Peach, as her inspiration. The florals in this shoot are beyond amazing all thanks to the uber-talented Holly of Holly Chapple Flowers.The design of this shoot is whimsical, romantic with a touch a of quirk.

Lauren + Steven | Raleigh, NC | Styled Shoot

I decided to brighten up this gloomy day with this romantic, warm engagement session  blog post filled with lots of gorgeous light! I collaborated with a few other talented ladies to create this simple styled shoot for Lauren and Steven. Lauren and Steven first met and fell in love in high-school so it was only appropriate that Steven take her back to Davidson and propose in the neighborhood she grew up in. I am so excited for these two to get married in May! I can only imagine how lovely it will be! 

Lauren and Steven, I am so excited for May!! And a huge thank you to the talented ladies who made this shoot so gorgeous!
