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! Anne Marie and Zach are the sweetest couple you’ll […]

This sweet couple here was such a dream to work with!!  The entire session was filled with laughter, dancing, and lots of love!  These two are so in love that they needed ZERO posing instructions and every image was pure magic!! And not to mention, I’m pretty sure that Hunter is a Disney princess in […]

Sweet Carrah has been a friend of mine since back in my Gardner-Webb days, so when she reached out about doing a post-elopement session I was ecstatic!! After years of dating, Carrah and Josh always knew they would get married, but neither wanted the stress and chaos that comes with having a big wedding.  So […]

I have been bursting at the seams to share these bridal portraits and now that Jessie and Christian have tied the knot, I can finally share her portraits with the world!! Jessie’s bridal portrait session is one of my all-time favorites and she could not have looked more stunning in her Morilee designer gown!!! We […]

On a stormy summer day, Kendall and Matthew honored their love by tying the knot at the Gingerbread Meeting House.  There may have been a string of horrific storms that came through that day, but it didn’t stop these love birds from having the most beautiful and romantic day!! Kendall looked like a goddess in […]

In honor of Allison and Aaron’s one-year anniversary, I wanted to share part of their wedding story with you!  (Yes, I’m a little late getting their beautiful day on the blog, but in my defense I did not have my new website up and running when they got married!) I remember their wedding day like […]

Bree and Jake’s engagement session was just full of excitement and as you can see…it was Christmas in July!! Since they are having a December wedding, Bree wanted to incorporate a holiday touch to their session!  That being said, these two brave souls ended their session with a winter outfit and I added a little […]

This Laboratory Mill wedding could not have been more beautiful!  Both being music lovers, Elizabeth and James incorporated a small orchestra and pianist into their breathtaking ceremony, which nearly brought us all to tears!! Elizabeth could not have looked more stunning in her gorgeous lace gown and the soft touches of purple was the perfect […]

Sarah and Tanner met in their first year of college and they have the sweetest story (which you can read at the end)!  From their vintage engagement session, to Sarah’s incredible train car bridal session, these two could not have been more fun to work with!!  Their Gingerbread Meeting House wedding was perfection! The wedding […]

When Brandy and I first met up to chat about her wedding details, I knew that she was going to be great to work with!  This gem of a bride is not only sweet and kind, but she is also one of the most organized brides I’ve had the pleasure of working with! Her blue […]
