When one of your neighbors is growing wheat and the other has beautiful kids, you plan a sunset wheat field session!  Kendall and Kaitlyn have the sweetest sister bond and they always keep me smiling!  They each get more beautiful each time I see them! Their brother, Dusty, and his precious girlfriend joined in on […]

This Rankin Lake Park engagement session was such fun!  Cassie and Charlie are the sweetest couple and their smiles are contagious!  Within 5 minutes of starting their session, I felt like I was hanging out with friends for the afternoon! You’ve got to hear about the sweet proposal!  On December 19th, Charlie came home with […]

I know this isn’t my usual kind of post, but I felt compelled to share my vintage bicycle restoration and how it was used as a prop in my own session!  On this facelift Friday, I’m sharing before and afters of this past project. A couple of years ago, a friend gave me this rust […]

Rebecca and Ryan chose Romare Bearden Park for their engagement session because that’s where they had their first date!  The love and energetic vibe between this couple blows my mind!  Once I picked up my camera, it’s like I wasn’t even there and they snuggled and kissed all evening long!  This fabulous duo barely even […]

With this couple, it’s always endless fun and laughter!  In April, Megan and Mark will be celebrating their 2 year anniversary!  I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than a beautiful session at the Price Family Farmstead! XOXO,

This downtown Forest City engagement session was so romantic!  You know you’re doing something right when the groom to be says, “This is so much fun, I’m so excited!”  Although my sessions are always loads of fun, I don’t always find that the guys are as excited as us girls!  This sweet couple shows us […]

It was a whopping 36 degrees for this Jump Off Rock engagement session!  Not to mention, the wind almost blew us right off of the mountain!  Despite the weather conditions, all of the love and laughter warmed these two in ways that a jacket couldn’t! Alex and Cody are a match made in heaven and […]

This incredible Biltmore Estate engagement session is certainly one for the books.  It was a warm day in February and there were only 4 people on the grounds!  It was like having the place to ourselves for the day! Matt proposed to Liza at Biltmore, so it was only fitting that we plan their engagement […]

When Jessica and Drew requested to do their engagement session in NoDa, I was super excited!  It was my first time visiting the new Charlotte neighborhood and I was not disappointed!  From the old buildings to the colorful murals everywhere, it was just perfect! As we strolled the streets laughing and chatting, the couple talked […]

Each time I plan a session with this gorgeous girl, it’s always so magical!  Mackenzie and Wesley’s romantic field session was filled with so much love and laughter!  They are truly a match made in heaven and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for them! XOXO,
