For most, planning a wedding can take years. It’s strategic, stunning, and carefully calculated. However, this tranquil couple decided to throw caution to the wind, and kept their day minimalistic. Flowers, colorful glass, gem stones, and delicious drinks set the tone for this laid-back atmosphere; and they wouldn’t have it any other way. Today, it’s their day, wild and free.
Imagine wild horses running down these gorgeous sandy banks, and you’ll have the ultimate summer wedding. This styled session pulls in inspiration from the shores of North Carolina. This inspiration bounces between rich earthy tones, and warm summer hues. Sunshine and a soft breeze never looked so good. He’s a natural in front of the camera, and she’s a bit shy. Her laughter is contagious, which allows you to feel the genuine love between these two kind souls.

Maggie’s love for the ocean is so overwhelmingly wonderfully that she beams with joy whenever she is around it. For she and Rhett’s wedding day, saying “I do” by the sea was the only place they could ever imagine starting their new journey. From the precious crustacean-inspired escort cards to her buttercream bouquet – their wedding is filled with details that have always been some of my personal favorites!
P.S. I will be sharing some very exciting news about Maggie and Rhett’s wedding next week so stayed tuned!

Love can do anything. It has no limits. It gives people hope, brings them joy and can be overwhelmingly wonderful. If ever there was a celebration of love, it would be Lori and Tim’s wedding. Surrounded by close family and friends, their intimate, tear-jerker “I do’s” were a reminder that with love, anything is possible. Without further adieu, here are a few of my favorites from Lori and Tim’s sweet day.

Being a wedding photographer, you get to witness some pretty amazing moments! From tear-jerker first looks to sparkler send-offs for the ages, I have so many wonderful memories thanks to my brides and grooms! While all weddings are unique in their own way, I must admit that Lauren and Hunter’s was one of my favorites.
Like many couples on the morning of their wedding, Lauren and Hunter exchange love letters; however it is what they did afterwards that made things extra special. They placed both letters into a bottle and tossed it into the ocean during their ceremony. It was truly wonderful to be a part of such a beautiful moment in time, and I am forever grateful to these two for allowing me to be their wedding photographer!
