Leith Wedding// Havelock, NC

When Remi first emailed me, I KNEW she and Ted were people I wanted to work with. Not only because they are a smoking HOT couple, but because of their sweet hearts. They love the Lord, love others, and value the sacredness of marriage. 

I was a little intimidated to shoot their wedding, because Remi is a talented photographer herself AND because they told me they had looked at 15+ photographers and finally chose ME of all people. GULP. But after meeting them, all those fears vanished because of how KIND and welcoming and loving they were to me. 

When I tell you the love Remi & Ted have for each other is stronger than any other couple I’ve ever seen, I mean that wholeheartedly. I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed a love like theirs. And because they love Jesus with their WHOLE hearts, they love each other & others in such a special way. Love oozes from them. And it was SO refreshing to watch. Everything about their wedding blessed my heart. It was intimate, simple, and full of love and bliss. Their vows mad everyone boohoo, almost their entire wedding party flew from Australia to NC to celebrate with them, and they fed everyone pizza at their reception. Can’t get much better than that! 

Being a part of this wedding reminded me how good our Father is to bless us with the gift of marriage. How sacred it is. How fun & wonderful & intimate it is. How it is an earthly example of what our relationship with HIM should look like. I feel SO thankful to have been a part of this day with these two amazing people. It was worth every second of driving 10 hours through the night to be there xoxo

Cooper Wedding // Anderson, SC

Ugh..these two…WHERE DO I EVEN START!?? 

Basically, over the past 2 years, Grayson & Jacob have become some of our BEST friends in the upstate. We met at the gym and started working out together, would get tacos afterwards, and now they come over to our house, laughing and talking well after midnight. Moving to the upstate, I knew no one. Chris and I prayed that the Lord would send us some solid friends into our lives, and these two are definitely an answer to that prayer! We’ve walked through life with them, during their dating season, engagement, and now marriage. And its been so sweet to watch them grow in their love for the Lord and for each other over the past few years.

So naturally, when they asked Chris to officiate the wedding, and me to photograph it, we were elated!! Actually, thats a lie, because Chris actually said no at first when they asked him!! ;) He’s not a huge fan of officiating weddings, but he thought about it and realized he would be crazy not to be a part of their special day!! 

They got married at a new, beautiful venue in Anderson called Huitt Farms. It actually POURED rain about 1 hour before their ceremony, which was outside. But the storm cleared out, cooled everything off, and it turned into the most PERFECT summer, afternoon wedding. Usually after a 10 hour wedding day, I’m ready to go when the last song plays at the reception. But when the DJ announced it was time for the exit, I was SO bummed. It was THE most fun wedding ever! Their families are so kind, their friends are hilarious (best wedding party EVER), and all the vendors were a dream to work with. 

Grayson & Jacob, we adore yall. We are for yall. And we will forever walk this journey of marriage alongside yall. You have blessed us with a lot of laughs, gratitude, taco nights, and a true understanding of what genuine friendship looks like. You two are wise beyond your years and we are SO proud of yall. Can’t wait to see your marriage flourish over the years. The best is yet to come :)

Nolan Wedding//Wildberry Farm

I always tell my couples that no wedding is perfect, and to get ready and not freak out when something goes wrong. But honestly , Melody & Tyler’s wedding was pretty close to perfect in my eyes!!

I met Melody in college and we’ve stayed in touch throughout the years. She would DM me on occasion and tell me “As soon as I get engaged, I’m booking you to shoot my wedding!” Well sure enough, the day after she got engaged, she messaged me about shooting her wedding! I was so honored and excited.

Their wedding was THE epitome of a perfect summer wedding. Sunflowers, blue skies, green grass, and a gorgeous sunset to end the day. Melody planned and decorated the entire thing, and honestly, she needs to become a wedding planner after seeing what she did at her wedding! Everything was so beautiful and intentional. She also got married at the same place I did, except she didn’t have any snow or freezing temperatures like I did at mine in January! Melody & Tyler, I truly was honored to be your photographer and witness such a beautiful day. You two TRULY are an Abercrombie & Fitch model couple ;)

Mallory & Grant//Engagement

Someone asked me the other day what my favorite type of sessions were to photograph, and they are simply the ones where the couples are madly in love. The couples who don’t focus on me being there, but focus on being with their loved one. And that is exactly what it was like photographing Mallory & Grant. They started dating when they were 13 (!!!) and have been together ever since. They are getting married in November and after hanging out with them, you can definitely tell their love is 10 years deep. Its effortless, genuine, and so beautiful. They texted me right before our session and told me to get ready, because they’re very awkward in front of the camera. Yet, the love they have together absolutely overshadowed their feelings of awkwardness.

Everyone gets nervous when a camera is 5 inches from their face. Yet, I’m not looking for you to be the best model or to pose perfectly. All I want is to document your love. The two of yall together. It doesn’t have to be perfect and posed. It just has to be real and genuine. And if you’re truly in love, you’ll be the best models ever, in my opinion ;)

Mallory & Grant, Im counting down the days till y’alls wedding & can’t wait to watch you become husband and wife and spend decades more together!!! x
