Finding self-acceptance and self-love is available to us at any given moment. It lies in finding what feels good, in withholding our self-judgements and staying curious, open and loving about WHAT IS.

Oh these two… Simona & Corbin are just the sweetest and kindest couple! I had the pleasure of photographing their wedding last month at Sky Retreat, and oh boy, what a treat! Simona is Bulgarian and her and Corbin’s big day was chocked full of Bulgarian traditions. I’ve photographed a lot of weddings and this […]

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 […]

When I first moved to the NC High country, I made it my personal mission to explore as many trails, parks, overlooks and backroads as I could. I kept my hiking boots in my car and would frequently hit the trail in the evenings (before daylight savings time). I quickly discovered the popular locations and […]

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 […]

All I can say about Hannah & Dylan’s wedding is WOW! Hannah & Dylan tied the knot earlier this month at Twickenham House & Hall in Jefferson, NC, and I’ll say… these two know how to put on a wedding! The day began with the ladies prepping in the Versace Suite in Twickenham’s gorgeous mansion. […]

Earlier this month Sara & John tied the knot at the Barn at Cornerstone under sunny skies and surrounded by their friends and family. The venue is a gorgeous property just off of 194 in Banner Elk. With a barn reception space, rolling greens, a creek and an old red barn, the Barn at Cornerstone […]

Sweet, sweet love… this upcoming weekend Kelsey & Drew tie the knot! Since I didn’t blog their engagement session last fall, I wanted to take the time this week to share images from their Julian Price Park engagement session last fall. We scheduled their session in mid-October when most trees had lost their leaves. However, […]

Kati & Patrick’s engagement session was a literal dream come true! Earlier this year when Kati & Patrick booked me, Kati expressed that she really wanted to do her engagement session when it was green outside, which if you’re a High Country resident, is wayyyyyy later than the rest of the world. Thus, we originally […]
