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 […]

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 […]

Downtown Forest City could not have been a more perfect setting for this session!  When Shea reached out to me about doing a 2-year anniversary session with a styled look, I knew it was going to be amazing! They brought along a cute little table, with fall decor, to sit at and open their anniversary […]

This Christmas wedding was magical in every single way!!  I felt like I was on the set of a Hallmark movie all day long…I was IN HEAVEN!!  There were lit trees, lanterns, and candles everywhere you looked, and the bridesmaids even carried lanterns instead of bouquets!

Despite the extreme weather conditions, Taylor and Jordan’s wedding at The Cliffs at Glassy certainly makes the top of the list for favorites!  The dense fog, wind, and rain sure didn’t stop these two from having the time of their lives!  There’s just something about the fog that made these portraits so much more romantic […]

This sweet couple requested to do their engagement session on his family farm because that’s where he proposed.  Malia and Spencer met years ago through mutual friends, but didn’t start dating right away.  After staying in touch over the years, the two finally went on a date on Malia’s birthday.  From then on, the two […]

This Blue Ridge Parkway engagement session is truly one of the most romantic shoots I’ve ever done!  It was so whimsical that something happened to me that has never happened while shooting.  I broke out into song behind my camera as the couple were stolling up a mountain path! The hills are alive with the […]

Jessica and Alex’s South Mountain engagement session is one for the books!  This sweet couple is so adventurous and fun that I felt like I was hanging out with friends all evening!  The one thing I love most about these two is that they don’t care where they are, as long as they’re together. Jessica […]
