Choosing a location for Heather & David’s engagement session proved to be a challenge. Choices one and two were all booked up for the date they wanted but on a whim, they chose The Biltmore in Asheville. Does any other choice really compare? We spent the afternoon exploring all that the gorgeous grounds have to offer.

Heather and David were a dream to photograph. Their love for each other was on fire! The easiest way to love your photographs is by loving your significant other visibly. I can pose you but poses can only go so far. We read emotions and movement in photographs, they’re what draw you in. Heather and Dave are a great example of “forgetting” that the camera was there and they just enjoyed being together. I just had to be ready for so many sweet moments!

Afterward, we grabbed dinner together and truly became friends. I’m so excited about their September wedding! It’s going to be incredible!

XOXOXO,

Michelle & Al’s Whitehead Manor wedding in Charlotte was the best way possible to cap off my 2021 season. Not only do I just adore these two and the big love they have for everyone they meet. But, they somehow made it snow on a 75 degree day! Yes it was MAGICAL!

I seriously had the best time capturing all of the sweet and fun moments for Michelle and Al. I feel like I’ve gained new friends and that’s my favorite part of this business.

XOXOXO,

Jennifer and Dakota’s Mint Museum wedding in Uptown Charlotte was this beautiful blend of joy and elegance. These two are just so full of life! From the moment you walk in the door, you can see the deep connections they share with so many loved ones. Plus their big personalities left you feeling like you’d been part of the family for years. Add into the mix Jennifer’s impeccable taste and the incredible details. It just made for an epic wedding day!

I got to hang out with one of my favorite families this year! We didn’t meet in 2020 because of Covid, so it made our reunion even better. We made the trek up to Blowing Rock to get some beautiful fall foliage and walk around Julian Price Park. It’s a great little spot for littles who love to explore and throw rocks into rivers. It’s my 2nd time shooting there and I’ve really enjoyed it. Plus, the Shown family keeps me rolling! Love y’all!

XOXOXO,
