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 […]

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.

I¬†arrived early so as to have plenty of time to photograph ALL the details, of which, Jessica had curated many! From stacks […]

Hannah & Joseph’s wedding was all about the love between people. Their nuptials were punctuated with not only adoration for each other, but also a sense of community with all the people that surround their daily lives. There were smiles, dancing amongst strangers and tons of laughter from the getting ready with mimosas to throwing […]

Last Saturday night myself and 6 other photographers ventured out to a dark spot in Boone for some light painting. We came armed with glow sticks, lanterns and headlamps for some long exposure exploration. Light painting essentially uses the light source in your image as a way to create a new subject through motion or […]

Well that was a lot of snow! After moving to Boone just two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of experiencing a true snow storm this past weekend. At first I felt a bit speculative about going through such a cold adventure, but this weekend convinced me that I actually really like living in the […]
