NC Bridal Portrait Photographer Before last year, when I was a bride myself, I didn’t fully understand the benefits to the seemingly old Southern tradition of doing a bridal portrait session. I always thought I would never want photos of just me, and that I would rather just have engagement photos with my fiancé, but […]

NC Maternity Photographer Katie and Michael are expecting a sweet baby girl in August and I am so super excited for them to begin the adventure that is parenthood!

The Cranfords Aly and Tuck were a 2018 AKP wedding couple, and their gorgeous Asheville wedding at Homewood was one of our favorite Fall weddings we’ve ever photographed. I have loved following their adventures as newlyweds, and their two pups, Wilson and Murphy, are the actual cutest! We were so excited when they said they […]

St Thomas Wedding Photographer I love the beach, and y’all know I LOVE weddings, so it makes sense that I would love beach weddings. But YALL – I had SO much fun with this U.S. Virgin Islands wedding shoot! Granted, it was not a full on wedding, it was just a quick photoshoot in St […]

I was super excited to shoot their wedding at this  historic estate, not just because it’s gorgeous, but also because Boxwood Estate is actually super close to where I live(which […]

Haywood Hall – Raleigh Wedding Photographer   Alyssa and Shane are finally married!! YAY!!
