Valerie and James in Asheville, NC

I couldn’t adore this couple more. Valerie and James are so down to earth and genuinely in love with each other. It’s apparent that their love is grounded in friendship above everything. We had a blast exploring the Biltmore Estate for their engagement portraits last year and it was such an honor to help them celebrate their wedding day on June 18 of this year. The amazing Carrie Turner came on as my second photographer and Nicole Bloom of Two Sweet Sparrows did an impeccable job making sure everything came together beautifully! Here are some of my favorites from their amazing wedding day:

Orange Krush Band was fantastic!

Cheers to Valerie and James! Thank You so much for allowing us to play such an important role on your wedding day!

Ian and Courtney in Carrollton, GA

I don’t say this lightly, but Ian and Courtney’s wedding was one of the most beautiful and unique celebrations I’ve seen in ten years of being a wedding photographer.  It had elements of a traditional southern garden wedding mixed in with the energy and vibrance of a music festival (not to mention the live artist and killer band The Fritz). Ian and Courtney met at a Phish concert so the later half of their reception went well into the night and felt more like a concert than a wedding! Balloons and glowsticks everywhere, sweaty enthusiasm on the dance floor, and joy. Lots of JOY.

I’m so happy for my friends, Ian and Courtney! Thanks for letting me play such a big role in your amazing day! Here are some highlights from their wedding on June 11, 2016:

This was easily my favorite moment(s) of the day; Champagne was poured, everyone grabbed a balloon and walked down to the reception site together. It was quite a parade!

Hands down, the most beautiful wedding cake I’ve EVER seen. Truly.

Handmade with love by friend of the bride’s family, Ann Fletcher

The Fritz band was amazing!

All in all, it was a pretty epic wedding day! Sending lots of love to Ian and Courtney! Big thanks to my assistant photographer, Meredith, for traveling down to Georgia with me!

Katie’s Biltmore Bridal Session

Katie married Ben this past Saturday at the Biltmore Estate so I can share these beautiful bridal portraits we shot earlier this summer! I’ve known Katie since we were kids in Raleigh so seeing her glowing in her wedding dress was super special! More to come soon from the wedding day!

Katie had the best support team in her parents!

Lauren and Kevin in Charleston, SC

I’m a little behind posting on the blog. I’ve had such a great month of June and have traveled all over and photographed some truly incredible weddings. Today, I share some of my favorites from Lauren and Kevin’s Lowndes Grove Plantation Wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. These two were married on May 29 and it started out as a very wet and rainy day, but with perfect timing, the weather cleared up (and cooled off) and everyone celebrated on the beautiful waterway! Charleston Coastal Events did a fantastic job as well as the Soul Fish Band and Flowers by Frankie!

Lauren’s brother sang their first dance song! (above)

Big Congratulations to Lauren and Kevin! Thanks so much for allowing me to document this special day for you! Another big thanks to my assistant, Nikki!!
