Shelly | Rose Hill Bridal Portraits

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 Posted in Bridal Portraits 

One of my favorite parts of my job is photographing engagement and bridal portraits. I love getting to know my clients more, and the family members they bring along. It was during Shelly's bridal portraits that I got to meet her mom, Angie, and her sister, Lindsay. Because of the strong relationship built during this shoot, the wedding was a breeze, and I was able to capture authentic smiles, real laughter, and images that truly tell the story of their family. I have fallen deeply in love with Shelly's family, and it's a privilege to share these images with you.

Abby & Chandler | Raleigh Engagement Photography

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 Posted in Couples 
Abby and Chandler, I had such a great time with you during your engagement session. There's a certain atmosphere of comfort and ease that you both carry that makes photographing you so much fun. Chandler, what I love the most about you, is your complete awareness and love for Abby. I can tell that she is the most important thing in your life, and it shows in the way you look at her. Abby, I love how genuine, funny, and confident you are. I can tell that you're the type of person that puts everyone at ease. You also cherish Chandler, and love him deeply....that shows in these photos. Thank you for choosing me as your photographer, it's a great honor. I can't wait for your wedding to get here!

Jason & Gentry | Raleigh Weddings

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 Posted in Wedding 

I watched Jason and Gentry pull into the parking lot of where we were going to take photos. As she stepped out of the car, I was mesmerized by how beautiful she looked. Then Jason came out in all smiles, wearing a tux similar to the one he was married in. Gentry looked at me and asked, “Am I crazy for doing this?”. It was in that moment that I was hit by the glorious weight of what this shoot meant to their family. This wasn’t just a vain, “I want pretty pics of me and Jason in our wedding outfits”. This was a, “I want memories and pictures that show our love, to pass down to our kids, and their kids.” I knew then that I was photographing their legacy…I knew this shoot was huge, and it was a dream that had been hidden in Gentry’s heart for 8 years.

As you browse through these images, you'll think..."Awww, look at how happy these newly weds are". But the truth is, Jason and Gentry just celebrated their 8th wedding anniversary on April 1st. But, there’s one thing that has been gnawing at Gentry since her wedding. She didn’t hire a professional wedding photographer, and the images from her day have been a huge regret ever since. At her core, she wants her daughters to be able to have beautiful images of their mom and dad for them to cherish and pass down to their kids. So, instead of living the rest of their lives with the regret of their wedding photos, Gentry decided to have professional photos of her and Jason in their wedding attire. I was reminded again of the power of what I do. What I capture is moments in time that we’ll never have again, and my clients will look back on these images and remember their love, and their children will look at these images when they are preparing to get married, and they will say, "Wow, I want a love like my mom and dad's." Gosh….I love what I do
