Nicole & Justin | Raleigh Durham Wedding Photographer

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011


Nicole and Justin were married in downtown Durham on a beautiful sunny day.  They had a fabulous church ceremony and their reception was held at the American Tobacco Campus.  We had a blast roaming the streets of downtown Durham after the ceremony and got a TON of great shots with the most unique backdrops.  It was a fun wedding and I was so honored to be there!!

Many congrats to Nicole and Justin!

What’s a wedding in downtown Durham without a stop at the Bull?  🙂

Summer’s Bridal Portraits

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

I met Summer on one of our hottest days in July to take her bridal portraits.  It was at least 100 degrees outside and extremely hazy and muggy…. and the mosquitos were out in full force at this beautiful location.  She was such a good sport and COMPLETELY stunning.  She’s a drop dead gorgeous bride.  I totally love her dress  — it has POCKETS!!  And that long veil — totally to die for!!!

Here’s a little peak at some of my favorites from our session!

Summer & Daniel | Raleigh Wedding Photography

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Last weekend I had the pleasure of documenting the marriage of Summer and Daniel.  You won’t meet nicer people… they are sweet and kind and their love for one another is so easy to see.  The day of their wedding was stormy and rainy, so we were confined to the church for much of our photos – until the end when the sun showed up and we captured some amazing outdoor shots!!  The rain didn’t put a damper on the festivities, though — everything was beautiful and perfectly planned.

Right now they are surely relaxing on the beach.  Daniel planned the entire honeymoon himself and kept it a surprise from Summer!!  I thought that was so sweet and fun!  Thank you both for allowing me the opportunity to be there on your special day!!  Hope you are enjoying your honeymoon!!

Audrey & Anthony | Raleigh Wedding Photographer

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful wedding of Audrey and Anthony.  Audrey was a stunning bride, and her dress was absolutely gorgeous!  She managed to continue looking fresh and gorgeous the entire evening, despite the heat that day.  The reception was a blast – the neatest thing was the candy station Audrey planned.  The guests had a field day with all those sweets, it was so cool!

Audrey and Anthony, I hope you’re relaxing and enjoying your honeymoon!  I wish you many, many years of happiness, and thank you SO much for allowing me to be a part of your special day!  Congrats!













It was SO sweet seeing Anthony get choked up as Audrey walked down the aisle…

Kim and Ashley’s Bridal Portraits

Monday, January 31st, 2011

Meet Kim and Ashley. They were married recently in Savannah, GA.  I traveled down to Savannah a few weekends ago to visit with some fellow photographer friends of mine. And Kim and Ashley, having been a little disappointed with how their wedding pictures came out, decided to get all dressed up and model for us so we could get some new shots for them. They were such good sports – it was freezing out but Kim stood out in the cold posing for us as long as we wanted her to. Thanks Kim and Ashley for a fun afternoon in downtown Savannah!
