After being together for more than seven years and thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail (!!!), Susan and Chris are tying the knot in June and I couldn’t be more excited! We embraced the wind and cold weather as we explored the Tennessee/North Carolina border and watched one of the prettiest sunsets. Susan and Chris, I can not WAIT to capture your big day next summer!
I had the best time taking pictures of this sweet family! I’ve heard nothing but good things about the Rimmers from my friend Mary Lynn (her blog post coming soon!) and excitedly met them when I was home for a weekend. Here are a few of my favorites from the session. :)
I’m kicking off holiday mini sessions here in Charlotte, and I was thrilled when Amber reached out for pictures with her boyfriend and fur baby, Oscar!
It has been such a joy to be part of Caitlin’s story! I first met her during her engagement pics with Tanner and we’ve been working together ever since. I started talking to them about Cookout (because I’m hungry 24/7 lol) and it turns out they MET there! These are my people.
Caitlin and her mama joined me at the beautiful Historic Oak Grove County Park for her bridal portraits the week of her wedding. I can’t wait to share more from their wedding as I edit! For now, can we talk about how STUNNING Caitlin is?!
Sunday, September 2nd I woke up and excitedly texted Jess “IT’S WEDDING DAY!!!!” as I was packing my camera. I arrived on her family’s farm a couple of hours later, and inside you could hear the bridesmaids singing and dancing to a music playlist, mimosas nearby (my fave). I walked around the farm with my second shooter Mackinzie as the girls got ready and as I glanced around and took in that big, wide open field, I knew that Jess and Reece’s wedding day was going to be a good one. Boy, was I right.
The Bridal Party
You’ve seen my instagram full of pictures from Jess and Reece’s wedding - now I get to come back and share her bridals with you! Jess is THE most graceful, kind hearted person I’ve met in a loooong time. No joke. She is intentional with her relationships with her friends, intentional with her relationship with God, and is seriously such a bright light everywhere she goes. I’m thrilled to share the pictures we took on her family farm before her wedding day. It’s almost like you can feel the excitement she feels towards marrying Reece coming from these pictures!
On September 9 I drove to Greenville for a day of photography, friends, and mentorship with the Foster Collective. We had 5 (!!!) styled shoots and therefore 5 A M A Z I N G couples that I can’t WAIT to showcase. It was so informative to be able to work closely with such incredible mentors and grow in my confidence as a photographer but also as a business owner. This shoot was our first of the day. I love this couple and I love how these photos turned out! Enjoy!
Finally posting this session from a couple weeks ago and so excited to share! I've known MJ and her mama for forever, and our moms are really close. I drove out with my mom and little sister to her barn and took some portraits -- isn't she stunning?! And isn't that horse stunning?! I can't wait to get back to her barn (hopefully soon) and photograph her again!
