Taylor and Tyler’s wedding, at Blackberry Cove, was truly the dreamiest of weddings!  We have all been captivated by their fairytale for many years and their special day was just as amazing as they are!  I feel like I’ve waited an eternity to share this wedding and it’s been such a blessing being a part […]

For Taylor’s bridal session, we wanted a soft and elegant indoor setting.  New Beginnings Historic Farm was the perfect place!  Thank goodness we opted for indoor because it was freezing temperatures and insanely windy! Taylor got to experience everything the farm has to offer because she also spent her bachelorette weekend here doing goat yoga […]

Jamie and Sam met while working together and there was an immediate connection.  Funny enough, it was my own dad that suggested Sam should ask Jamie out on a date!  The same week they met, Sam was planning to move back to Pennsylvania and even had a job interview lined up!  But after meeting Jamie, […]

When Morgan and I started collaborating on an airstream photoshoot, I knew it was going to be a blast!  She has recently turned her working cattle farm into a photography venue and offers tons of props!  Including a vintage airstream! Belle’s Place, named after her prized holstein cow, is the perfect destination for portrait sessions!  […]

Cheyenne’s maternity session was so beautiful and whimsical!  Her first maternity session with me was during freezing temperatures and high winds.  Her second may have still been windy, but at least it was warm! When she was pregnant with her first child, she told me that she wanted to do some river shots with her […]

This romantic engagement session, at Baker Buffalo Creek, was so much fun!  Jessica is a former bridesmaid of mine so, of course, I was ecstatic when she reached out about photographing her wedding!  We had originally planned to do their session in the mountains, but after hearing about a severe wind advisory we decided to […]

This tropical boho wedding, at the Tree House, was the definition of whimsical!  The striking florals, vintage camper coffee bar, hanging florals and lanterns, whicker egg chairs, boho picnic-style area, and show stopping tablescapes set the entire tone for this tropical Vero Beach wedding. Emily and Clay have literally known each other since birth and […]

Part of planning a wedding is the wedding day experience you want create for your guests.  Music, food, and beverages – just to name a few.  However, oftentimes the wedding favors get overlooked or cut out completely!  It’s time to reconsider how something as small as favors can contribute to the overall vibe of your […]

This Gardner-Webb senior session was extra fun!  Immediately after meeting Grace, I felt like I had known her for years!  The entire evening was full of laughter and fun stories – couldn’t ask for anything better! Grace will be graduating with a Business Management degree and has already landed her dream job!  This sweet lady […]

I am an avid collector of pottery so this product photography shoot was a dream!  Taylor, with Small Town Pottery, is such an incredible artist and it was so much fun to work with her products!  I even left with a coffee mug and a t-shirt! I’m showcasing some of her work on the blog […]
