Bonnie's NYC Fashion Night Shoot



Hey everybody!

I love getting to be creative and go outside my normal shooting style.  For our trip to NYC, Bonnie and I did a little nighttime shoot that was SO fun. She's such a fun model and can turn it on for the camera day or night.  We shot at Beauty and Essex, Times Square, and the W Hotel at Times Square... all super cool night locations!













Talk to you soon,

Katherine and Dean's Bell Gables Wedding



Hey everybody!

Wedding on a Monday? Yep!  It's Katherine and Dean's one week wedding anniversary today! It was a small, intimate, beautiful ceremony at Bell Gables in Fayetteville, and I was honored to be their photographer.  I've done a few of these intimate weddings and they're so enjoyable because I literally get to spend time with every guest at the wedding. And you know me.... I LOVE people!  And I LOVE talking! Their family and friends were all so nice, and the couple was just DARLING!  Here are some of my favorites from their wedding...

Fayetteville Wedding of Natalie and Curtis



Hey everybody!
Now comes the story of their perfect day. We LOVE Natalie and Curtis... Nat is SO excitable and easy to photograph. We had a blaaaaast being with them on the best day ever! First stop of the day... Crown Beauty Bar! Her sister-in-law is the wonderful and amazing Kelly Stuckey - the owner of Crown. She did an amazing job on Nat's hair and makeup!


Love this shot of all the bridesmaids helping her into her gorgeous dress!


Okay so Curtis did the SWEETEST thing EVER. He got a portrait of their engagement painted for Natalie as a wedding gift! AWWWW! So thoughtful!


Love this touching shot of Natalie with her dad. He's precious, y'all!








They got married at UBC - their officiant was a long-time family friend and this was the last wedding he was going to perform... ever! How special!






Love how sweet these two are to each other!




Get it girrrrrrrrrl!!




Haha I love this fun shot of the whole family belting it out!


Such a sweet couple - congratulations you guys!!!

Natalie and Curtis Pratt Place Barn Wedding Details



Hey everybody!

Natalie and Curtis's wedding was a true testament to how family and friends can pull together at the 11th hour and make beautiful things happen.  The days leading up to the wedding, they learned that one of their main vendors would no longer be a part of the wedding, but instead of throwing hands up in the air, everybody buckled down and pulled off a dreamy, beautiful wedding ceremony and reception.  Here are some of the gorgeous details from the day...


This dress! Oh my word.  I thought the placement against the curtains at the Chancellor Hotel was a great image.

Ya'll, I always love to see these shoes on a wedding day.  So sweet!

Huge, beautiful arrangements welcomed the guests into the reception...

Such a fun and cute cake!

And c'mon... how about this getaway car! So fun!



Come back tomorrow and I'll share the story with y'all!  Yay!

Talk to you soon,
