Holly's {2nd} Maternity Session



Hey everybody!

One of my very first maternity clients years ago when I started shooting them was Holly! She's been a dear friend to us over the years and we've loved watching their family grow.  And now it's growing again!!  We recently photographed Holly's sweet belly (and family!). Have a look!


Momma and Scout. So presh.

Cutest belly ever, y'all!

Then I had to get some of my man doing his thing.

Then we gave Scout a modeling break and did a couple of the parents.







And alas... the whole family.  How sweet and perfect is this?!




Talk to you soon,

Brandon and Hope's Spring Engagement Portraits in Fayetteville



Hey everybody!

Timing is everything. Brandon and Hope have good timing, not just with their lovey-lovey relationship, but with their engagement portraits! It was the FIRST day I saw new blooms on the bushes in trees in Fayetteville, no doubt because of the last burst of rain that came the days before the shoot. Whatever the reason, I couldn't be happier because we found some gorgeous (yet totally random, if you saw where we stopped along the way!) spots that paired with Hope and Brandon's outfits. Oh, and a big shoutout to Bonnie for styling her sister for this shoot! More on her fashion/style/hair/makeup blog coming soon!

Y'all... I just ADORE spring!  Isn't this perfection?

Look at how they're looking at each other. Love love love.

S'sweet.

Oh, hey there Benny Backlight... nice to see you again!



This face is everything. Hope is so fun and cute!


Y'all, I might just have to do a 2nd post from this shoot; there were so many good ones!


Talk to you soon,

Ben and Tressa's Fayetteville Wedding Portraits



Hey everybody!

It's Portrait Day! We were able to do two mini-portrait sessions with Ben and Tressa (I always love doing that when possible) because they had a first meeting, and their ceremony ended before the sun set! Spring is starting to bloom here in Fayetteville so pulling that into the images was exciting (after months of no color outside!).








This lighting... this color. Ahhh!!!  This is what happens when your day works out perfectly, y'all!!













Thanks again to Autumn Ridge Plantation for letting us use this car! It was a dream!






Talk to you soon,

Ben and Tressa's Fayetteville Town Center Reception



Hey everybody!


Party time!!! Not only was Tressa's wedding a dream, her reception was exceptional! JLK Weddings totally rocked this reception and made Tressa's vision come to life.  Fayetteville Town Center was totally transformed!


I LOOOOOVE the ring of hanging bead strands above the dance floor. It made such a statement!



And... this CAKE!  Y'all, it was taller than me!



Being a dad, I'm always drawn to cute kids at receptions... but y'all... it doesn't get cuter than this...


Al Paris provided the entertainment - it was super fun!



Ben and his boys love some good Michael Jackson... they even think they can dance like him.

Little did they know that Tressa had an MJ impersonator. This was a first for me, and it was SO FUN!







Three Benny Brides in this picture!  Haha! Love it!

Ben... getting DOWWWWWWN!







I could've gone on and one with these! SUCH a fun party!!  Guess what's coming tomorrow... PORTRAITS!!


Talk to you soon,
