This bridal session in downtown Morganton might just be my favorite of my career!  Not just because Kaitlynn is one of my closest friends, but also because it was so incredibly beautiful!  I literally tear up each time I look through her pictures! Growing up, Kaitlynn was my neighbor and I used to give her […]

Kaylan […]

Krysta’s Point Lookout bridal session was a dream in every way!  We had been battling constant storms leading up to her session, but the morning of she said she had a feeling the weather would clear.
