For me, photography is much more than a “means to an end,” or a job to be finished. Instead, it’s an experience that I’m convinced should be felt and enjoyed. Anytime I’m talking with perspective couples I always spend far more time emphasizing the passion I have for the people I’m working with – because I feel […]
Ashley and Carlos are getting married this fall at a brand new venue for me (Wistella Farm) and I’m so flipping excited to shoot there! (New venues are always a favorite) So it’s only fitting that Ashley wanted to shoot her engagements somewhere new for me too – the West End of Winston Salem. I’ve […]
I’m not convinced that rain on a wedding day is such a bad thing… This weekend Zack and Becky were planning a beautiful, intimate ceremony outside their church, but the weather had other plans. It was not only rainy, but actually a little chilly too – so the ceremony was moved inside to the lobby. […]
This weekend was a special one… One of my close friends, Lauren, married her best friend, Shane! Lauren and I met about ten years ago (I seriously can’t believe it’s been that long) in college, and we’ve been good friends ever since. She was a tremendous help at my wedding with SOO many things (even […]
Today was an incredible day… Not only did I spend the day with one of our amazing couples, but I was able to photograph them at the most beautiful locations in this beautiful state I call home. The Vineyards at Betty’s Creek is truly one of the most unique and stunning places I’ve ever experienced. […]
What a wedding this was! It’s been such a wonderful experience to guide Justin and Diana through the entire photography experience, from beginning to end. (Check out their engagement photos) It’s such an honor to spend so much quality time with a couple, and their family, and then be a part of their wedding day. Call […]
Let’s be real. How many of us have times where we are wrong about something? (Go ahead, raise your hand…) We’re all guilty of this from time to time – and probably more often than we care to admit. Am I right!? Well today I’m keeping it real and totally shedding some light on my […]
I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it a thousand times over: I absolutely love small, intimate weddings! I’ve been privileged to be a part of several smaller weddings in the last few years and I’ll have to be honest when I say that they’re sort of my favorite. I love a big wedding, don’t […]
Karl (the groom) and I have a friendship that dates back to early elementary days. I’ve spent my fair share of time at his house growing up – swimming, camping, playing random games, and all kinds of other things. Karl, his brother and I were quite the rambunctious trio back in the day! So, when Karl […]
Let’s talk about one of THE hardest things I’ve ever had to do: keeping Brian and Jill’s surprise wedding a secret, for MONTHS! From the moment Jill first contacted me, I’ve been looking forward to today – the day her and Brian would completely surprise their closest friends and family with a surprise wedding! Let’s […]
