One of the most common questions I get from couples is how to plan their wedding day for the best photos. This can be a tricky question to answer as there are several things to consider. Ultimately, the question comes down to your priorities. Our job as photographers are to capture your day no matter […]

The sweetness and quiet sincerity that I get to share with clients at intimate weddings is truly one of the reasons I’m a wedding photographer. Elizabeth & Lance’s elegant and intimate Blowing Rock wedding was the perfect example of a day that gives me that warm feeling that I am documenting one of the most […]

Do you have a word for 2019? I’ve always been into New Year’s and “resolutions” or as I prefer to call them “affirmations”. I relish the chance to reflect and renew my mindset. I recognize that you don’t have to do this at the beginning of a New Year, and thus, I also take time […]

It’s not everyday that you get witness the union of two individuals who you KNOW are just meant to be together forever. That’s *exactly* what Margaret & Adrien’s wedding was for me.

Yes, there were […]

Oh, Mountains-to-Sea Trail, how I love thee. I’ll be honest, I haven’t done very many major hikes since getting a dog. Our dog Remi is a high-spirited, free-range pitbull. She loves other dogs and humans and does not do well on a leash. Most trails have leash laws for dogs, and thus, we are generally […]

Kati & Patrick’s wedding last month was oh so much fun! The day began with the ladies prepping hair and makeup from Shear Shakti and drinking mimosas. Everyone was so chill and happy for the gorgeous weather! The bride’s sister and maid-of-honor put the finishing touches on table cards and decor and kept the entire […]

Every once in a while you get a couple who have a truly unique idea for their wedding experience. Maggie & Josh were EXACTLY that couple! When Maggie and I spoke initially about her wedding, she confessed that her and Josh weren’t sure if they wanted a wedding. I’m so glad they decided to go […]
