Crystal Bridges Wedding of Don and Lynn



Hey everybody!

We absolutely LOVE photographing weddings at Crystal Bridges: the lighting is always so pretty, and you have about a million different options for portrait locations! Heather Pile, and the team at Inspired Grace Events, did a beautiful job of designing the room! Althea from Rose of Sharon also rocked out the florals! Have a look!

















Talk to you soon,

Anna and Parke's Fayetteville Engagement Portraits



Hey everybody!

I know I overuse the world "gorgeous" like the cast of the Bachelor use the word "amazing," but this couple is G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S! I was already looking forward to their destination wedding in Savannah, GA, next Spring, but after their engagement portrait session all around Fayetteville, I'm crazy excited! These two love each other like crazy, and look fabulous in pictures! Here are some of my favorites from the session...

Absolutely GAGA over the lighting here! AHHHHHH!!!!


And of course, a little Benny Backlight! Mmmmmmm.....


They're such great dressers too!

Proposal at Crystal Bridges!



Hey everybody!

Guys can be so romantic! Imagine walking in to the Great Hall at Crystal Bridges and seeing it all cleared out except one table in the middle of the room containing a gorgeous arrangement of flowers, a bottle of champagne and two glasses, and a portrait of a gorgeous couple. Can you see it? Well, that's what Jessica walked in to moments before Tyler dropped to one knee...


She of course said yes!


Look at that ring!  Holy moly!


The gorgeous engaged couple...
