Engagement

view the story

Sometimes I get clients who book me out of the blue “sight unseen” with out even a phone conversation. I get a little nervous when that happens because your first impression is when you’re about to have your first photo shoot. I keep my fingers crossed, breathe into a paper bag once or twice, and hope for the best. I get really self concious and my brain goes a million miles a second “What if they don’t like me? What if my style isn’t right for them? What if they don’t trust my vision?”

Thankfully, Amrita & Vishwan were beyond relaxed and wonderful at their engagement session! We met at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, NC and casually got to know one another as we explored the hotel. By the time we left for UNC, I knew this couple was my kind of people! PHEW! I’m so glad we connected well and had a ton of fun exploring the UNC campus. We ended the night already great friends and looking forward to their wedding day, which was AMAZING btw! I could just go on and on about how kind hearted, intentional, and benevolent these two are…but I think I’ll save that for their wedding blog since their family & friends did just that!

XOXOXO,
Mabyn

Wedding

Whenever I get a chance to reflect on the previous wedding season I’m always amazed. The stories that I get to capture are so beautiful & deep. They are full of dedicated families, hilarious friends, and of course a gorgeous couple that always has an epic love story. The wedding day is NOT about my pictures, it’s about love in all of its forms and how (at least for one day) it can conquer all! It’s so easy for us to get caught up in the little details of planning a wedding or even just life, but when I get to sit back and look at these stories as a whole, I can’t help but smile and feel proud of being a witness to it all. Thank you to all of my clients and a few who didn’t expect to hire me (yay for 2nd shooting!), your moments are what keep me fueled and passionate about my career. YOU are the reason why I pinch myself every day. Thank YOU!

Here are a just a handful of some of the amazing moments that happened at my 2014 weddings.

Thank you.

XOXOXO,
Mabyn
