Bridal Portraits: Lisa

I’ve been wanting to do more bridal portraits for a while now, so I was stoked when I got the opportunity to do a styled bridal session with Impressions Bridal in Concord ,NC and The Oaks Events in Midland, NC I called my friend Lisa, who I’ve worked with in the past, and set a date for it. We picked out this gorgeous gown by Sincerity Bridal with a portrait neckline, ruched bodice and a princess skirt with a chapel train to take out to The Oaks. We were having so much fun during the shoot, I decided to toss in my Fedora to play around for a few shots. I thought it kicked up the flavor of the dress so we used it for quite a few ideas.  I loved how casual, but elegant the decor at the Oaks is. It really added to a fun day. I hope to shoot there again soon. Maybe your wedding? 😉

Featured Wedding: Chris and Kaleigh

Their Wedding is finally on the blog! Remember Chris & Kaleigh? our awesome duo of first responders? If not, go check out their engagement session, and you’ll see why I’m so excited about their wedding. Everything was lovely. Kaleigh made me smile when she paired up a lovely princess wedding gown with a pair of white Toms. She just looked marvelous. The sky was bright, and everyone was dressed in their best and had smiles on their faces. The flowers were beautiful. Poppies Floral did a magnificent job creating beautiful arrangements of purple and white decorations.


And then it started raining.


I have to be honest with you, for a brief moment I stressed out, but then I remembered that I have awesome couples. I went back into the bride’s room and Kaleigh was already set on going out anyways. Everyone dug out umbrellas, we got our gear rain ready, and we made sure it wasn’t a thunderstorm (safety first).  So now it was time for our beautiful bride, Kaleigh to walk down the aisle at The Orchard House in Concord, NC. Nothing was going to stop these two, with mom and dad walking her down the aisle, the split a sea of umbrellas to meet Chris at the end of the aisle. Everyone stayed nice and close making for a really intimate ceremony. The Reception was a blast, Lots of dancing, beer can pyramids, delicious food. A beautiful launch of an amazing couple. May they have many years of happy memories ahead of them.

Family Portraits: Anavekar Family

I’d love to share with everyone a beautiful family that I’ve had the privilege of spending an afternoon and photographing. The Anavekar Family invited me to their home to photograph them to celebrate that their lovely little girl has turned one! I had a fantastic time on a beautiful afternoon capturing them just being themselves and having fun as a family. I love these people and hope to have the repeated privilege of photographing them again one day.
