A friend of mine recently asked me if my cheeks hurt when I leave a wedding from smiling so much behind my camera....to be honest I had never paid attention...until Dave and Miranda's wedding. It's safe to say that weddings are the BEST and my cheek muscles (do cheeks even have muscles?) get a great workout when I shoot a wedding.
Within the last year Dave and Miranda met, started dating, and are now married!! They were enthralled with each other all day and were so intentional in the ways they included their families and loved ones in celebrating their wedding day. One of my favorite parts of a wedding has become standing back and giving couples space to create their own moments...to take time to let newlyweds love on each other and fill the space/silence in a way unique to them...those always end up being some of my favorite images of the day because no other couple interacts the same as the next.
I feel like I say this every other day, but I really am blown away each time two people trust me to be part of their wedding day. Dave and Miranda, y'all are so sweet, kind, intentional, and your love is inspirational! Thank you for letting me hang with y'all and thank you for trusting me to create heirlooms for your family and generations to come!
I've known Hope since we were teenagers and her wedding day was full of nostalgia as memories of growing up together came flooding back to my mind watching her marry the man of her dreams. One of my favorite things about documenting a wedding is being part of those 'full circle' moments. It was so sweet to watch Hope promise her forever to such an awesome guy. Zach and Hope compliment each other so well and that showed through so radiantly in the time I had with them. Spending the day with these two was truly so much fun and I can't wait to see where the future takes you guys!Read More
Nick and Jocelyn's wedding was sweet, intimate, and SO joyful. It was amazing to be apart of a day where two people committed themselves to each other with such an amazing sense of optimism and excitement. It was one of those weddings where I found myself wiping my eyes from behind my camera on more than one occasion. Thanks so much for letting me be part of your beginning, you two. Enjoy!!Read More
Nate and Bonnie's big day was nothing short of sweet and sentimental. I loved watching them honor family and tradition throughout their entire day from the charms of loved ones who have passed included in Bonnie's bouquet, to their decision to dismiss each row of friends and family members from their seats after the ceremony. So elated that I got to be part of the day!Read More
It was such an honor to be part of Josh and Frances' big day at the Scarritt Bennett Center. Hearing their story and then watching them commit their forevers to each other was heartwarming and sweet. From the traditional ceremony (in both English and Spanish), to a reception with a Puerto Rican flare, their day was truly special.Read More
My best friend getting engaged was one of the happiest things I have been apart of, but to have the honor of shooting the day takes it to a whole different level. This day reminded me why I love photography-people allow you into their most intimate and special moments. There is nothing like that privilege. Tyler and Mir, here's to the start of your newest adventure! Scroll down to follow along through their day!Read More
I had the privilege of spending time with Eric and Brooke in North Carolina for their engagement shoot. I really enjoyed adventuring from one of Eric and Brooke's favorite parks in Raleigh to a farm that Brooke grew up going to in her hometown, Rocky Mount. I really got a taste of what their life is like and love that each location had a special meaning to them. Enjoy!!Read More
I got to meet up with Jen and her kids this weekend for a session and joy just RADIATES from all three of them. Jen carries a distinct sense of peace and spreads it anywhere she goes. Our time together was truly a breath of fresh air. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them!Read More
It was such a privilege to shoot a session with the DeTrude family! Elise and I studied Psychology together at Belmont, so to be able to meet her family was so so sweet-truly one of the most genuine families I have met. Enjoy!!Read More
Jilian Linklater: authentic, humble, and gifted with an amazing songwriting ability. Her music will give you chills, make you cry (in the best way), and resonate with you on deep levels. She's not only one of my favorite songwriters, but one of my favorite people on this planet......and she should be one of yours too, so do yourself a favor and listen to her music!!Read More
These lovebirds are such a perfect picture of love. I had the honor of shooting their engagement session and it was such a joy that they let me capture some pictures of such an exciting season in life. Their love is so vivacious, sincere, and selfless. Watching them interact for a few hours this weekend was so lovely and I can't wait to see where this new adventure takes them.Read More
I had the pleasure of meeting Darren and whitney for a First Anniversary Session. These two are as cute (and different) as can be--Whitney being the feisty spitfire, Darren, the mellow observer, and the two as southern as two people can be. They recently relocated to Nashville from Louisiana and I loved every second of our time together!!Read More
