Hunter and Rob’s fairytale wedding, at the Laboratory Mill, is one I will never forget.  Their romantic love story should be the inspiration for the next Nicholas Sparks novel.  The decor was exquisite, the gown was magazine worthy, and the touching moments made us all cry. The wedding party was also one of my favorites.  […]

Rebekah always knew she wanted a Christmas wedding and her special day was nothing short of magical.  The decor for this entire wedding and reception would have blown the Christmas town of McAdenville out of the water.  Christmas trees lit up the entire church and I felt as though I was a photographer on the […]

“Why would you wanna marry me for anyhow?  So I can kiss you anytime I want.” Anne Marie’s favorite movie is Sweet Home Alabama and she wanted to incorporate this into a portrait.  So, she brought along an adorable wooden sign with the famous line.  I had the most fun working with these two love […]

Bree and Jake’s Christmas themed wedding was absolutely magical.  Her stunning lace gown, the pops of red, and the intimate moments made this wedding one of my December favorites. The girls looked amazing in their matching flannels.  Add in some fake snow and you’ve got yourself the cutest shots.  After capturing some sweet getting ready […]

This sweet engagement session, in the magical town of McAdenville, has stolen my heart.  Since Connie and David will be having a December wedding next year, it was only fitting to do their portraits in the Christmas town.  Bringing along their fur baby Wyatt, we had the most fun strolling through town and seeing all of […]

Rebekah and James said “I do” on Saturday at one of the most stunning Christmas weddings I have ever seen!  Their amazing day will be on the blog soon, but for now her Washburn House bridal session should hold you over.  The historic setting was perfect and Rebekah looked incredible in her fitted lace gown. […]

Bree’s bridal session at the historic Banker’s House was more than captivating.  Her fitted lace gown, red lipstick, and fur shawl was pure elegance and was perfect for the couple’s Christmas wedding. It is my pleasure to share Bree’s portraits on the blog today and I’m so looking forward to sharing their special day with […]

I was pretty sad when the Listoe wedding fun came to a close, but when Jessie reached out about doing a Christmas session I was ecstatic!! Jessie looks like a runway model in her red, open back jumpsuit! BUT…that’s not the best part! After creating some wintery magic outdoors, we headed back to the Listoe […]

I’m so excited to be sharing this beautiful senior session today!  Not only is this blonde beauty a softball star, but she is also my niece!  After doing Gabby’s older sister’s senior session earlier in the year, it’s hard for me to believe that this amazing girl will be graduating soon. Gabby’s trendy style was […]
