After 12 years, James and Melissa are finally Married!!

Fate brought these two together despite 5 states standing between them growing up.  James was from here in NC and Melissa from Iowa.  A work position just happened to take James out to Iowa temporarily and that’s where he met his Iowa girl! They fell in love and he eventually brought her home to NC with him and they have been here ever since.

Their wedding day was full of family sentiment as they said their I Do’s in the same church that years of James’ family have attended.  We photographed under the giant magnolia tree in the yard that James’ Grandmother planted as a memorial after WWII. The reception venue, Lake O’ the Woods Plantation, was actually once owned by a branch of James’ family generations back.

I loved how Melissa herself created all the floral arrangements!  Can I mention that she used Maiden Hair Fern and Magnolia leafs in her designs? GORGEOUS.  Her mother made the cake and it was stunning.  Such a talented and JOYFUL group of people that we are so honored to have the pleasure of knowing!

I am so happy I get to watch these two grow old together.  Happy Marriage, Mr. & Mrs. Williams!

Melissa is officially married!!! Of course I am excited about that for a lot of reasons.  One, being that it only took she and James TWELVE years to become husband and wife! It’s about time! Two, being that their wedding day was absolutely perfect.  From the warm spring weather that decided to show up just for them (because it sure hasn’t been here till now!) to their day that was wrapped in family love, beautiful flowers and good eats.  And three being that her name is now MELISSA WILLIAMS!!  Why is that special!?  Only because my maiden name was Melissa Williams!  It’s a good name which I believe is going to bring her lots of luck in life ;)

Congratulations Mrs. Williams!! I’ll be sharing wedding pictures with you soon!!

Over the Christmas holiday, I finally got the news I’d been waiting FOREVER to hear – Lisa and Chas were engaged!!!!  My cousin Lisa has had this amazing Chas in her life for about 6 years now and we all knew it was just a matter of time before they made it official!  Of course plans for making a trip to Florida for engagement photos set into motion the moment we heard their news, and decided on the week of Spring Break so we could bring Evie with us and enjoy our time there with family (..aaaand a surprise couple of days at Disney!).

We had the most amazing time!  The weather in NC has been less than spring like since spring sprung so breaking out the shorts and flip flops for a week felt SO good!  ..and reconnecting with my family felt even better.  Lisa, her daughter Brie (who is the same age as Evie), and Chas live in Largo – a massive 12 hour drive from Hertford – so sadly we only get to see each other every couple years.  We are so thankful we had a BIG reason to make a sudden trip down to commemorate their engagement!

I could go on and on about how lucky and deserving Lisa is of having a great man in her life, exactly the man Chas is, but I want to especially share how special this union is for Brianna!  Brie gets a Dad out of this deal!  Chas has been in her life since she was about 2 years old so she’ll never remember not having her Chas by her side.  She has connected with him as a father since as early as she can form memories and I love that their union as a family will be official May 4 of 2019.

I’m so happy to share these incredibly special people today on my blog! Happy engagement to Lisa, Chas & Brie!!!

New Bern in the spring time is about as pretty as it gets!  Well, until you add a Kay & Drew to it, of course ;-) These two were the icing on the cake for my visit to Historic New Bern on Monday.  The weather was beautiful, the light was beautiful, the town was beautiful and our newest couple – who’s wedding we get to photograph in 2019 – was stunning.  Kay and Drew have a relaxed, easy, love.  It comes naturally! Even after admitting they were a bit nervous about the shoot – I NEVER would  have guessed it with how their sweet vibes just oozed out in front of my lens.

Their love began oozing after the reconnected one night in 2013. Kay says she made sure Drew got her number that night and they’ve been together ever since. It was a bit sad as we said our goodbyes on Monday knowing I wouldn’t get these smiles in front of my camera for a whole year, until their April 2019 wedding!  I guarantee it will be worth the wait ;-)

Happy Spring, yall!

Our lives have been full of some really fun adventures since I met Sybil Skinner of Yeopim Flowers … has it been 6? 7? Years ago?? Time sure flies when you are having fun! We’ve collaborated on styled shoots (here, here, and here) and fun afternoon parties (here and here). She designed MY wedding florals in 2015 and I’ve photographed her work at countless weddings of brides who hired us both for their lovely wedding days.  Jerry and I have spent Christmas Eves and birthday parties with them and feel pretty much like a part of the family now!  Both of our sets of parents are long distance and Sybil & John have made their way into our lives as our local Mom and Dad.

Of all the fun we’ve had over the last few years, the highlights have been happening during last year and this year as we are getting the chance to document Sybil’s real children’s weddings!  Her son Will and his lovely bride Caitie got married last year in Maryland and THIS year we are planning her daughter Elizabeth and her fiance, Matt’s spring 2019 wedding!

The adventures never quit with this family.  Will and Caitie, both botanists, had their engagement photos in the William and Mary Greenhouse which was incredibly perfect for them.  And Elizabeth and Matt had us join them last weekend in snowy Boulder, CO for their engagement photos which I am SO excited to share today!

Matt currently lives in Boulder where he works as a scientist who plays with lasers at NIST to count atoms.. Pretty fancy, right!?  Elizabeth says his title is Best Postdoc in Charge of Keeping Everything from Falling Apart.  Matt prefers Physicist at NIST.  Elizabeth lives in Williamsburg and is the lead scientist at Midstream Technology where she does mathematical modeling of acoustics.  Her current project is on researching benign bird deterrents for science. Anddddd she is finishing her PhD in Applied Science, too.

These people are going to have some really smart kids. 

They met in fall of 2012 for the first time but became friends in spring 2013 when Matt came over to Elizabeth’s to brew beer for a party.  That’s when it all began.  They were friends for a very long time before they both realized there has to be more going on between them. By May of 2015, they were officially an item!

With Matt being long distance, we had met him a handful of times around family gatherings (cause you know we are always at those Skinner family gatherings!) but hadn’t gotten the opportunity to really get to know him and his love for Elizabeth until this past weekend.  We kinda fell head over heels for this guy (hope you don’t mind sharing, Elizabeth!).  His love for her is tender and undeniable. The way they interact together is honest and patient.. and there is never a shortage of laughter.  All the magic ingredients for a successful marriage!

Because Matt has been in CO for work, they have spent quite a bit of time together there and wanted their engagement documented in that stunning location.  When they asked if we’d be willing to come to Boulder for their shoot we pretty much said “DUHH!!”.  It was such a beautiful experience and we even got lucky enough to have two completely different backdrops to photograph against while we were there! Our first day was foggy and snowy which was beautiful in and of itself, but the next day, as the storm passed through we were able to see those gorgeous Rocky Mountain peaks at Flagstaff which were enough to take your breath away!

Jerry and I even swallowed our severe fear of heights as we climbed up a slippery, rocky lookout that I am pretty sure was the highest mountain peak on earth.  Elizabeth and Matt walked out to the edge for some photos and I … well, crawled.. along with them to get the shot.  THAT’S HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU GUYS.

Our time with the upcoming Mr. & Mrs. Simons was SO much fun (and partly terrifying) and we are so grateful that we get to celebrate such a happy joy with our second family yet again!

… thankfully their wedding day will be on the flatlands of NENC ;-) …

    Beverly Simons - Cutest couple ever!! Of course as Matt’s mom I might be just a little prejudice. These photos are absolutely marvelous! I am so happy you guys were able to fly out there (weather notwithstanding) and got to take the photos on both a snowy and gorgeous sunny day. I can’t wait to see the wedding photos -:)ReplyCancel

      admin - They are the cutest!! We had so much fun photographing their joy and can’t wait for their biggest day next year! We look forward to meeting you, Beverly!ReplyCancel

My scheduled session with little Baylie just so happened to turn into a cozy in-home snow day! Baylie has grown so much since I last photographed her when she was 9 months old.  We had so much fun playing school with her stuffed animals, playing in her dress up closet, taking a quick step out into the frigid cold and of course getting some snuggles in with her fabulous Momma, Mollie of Glimmer Hair and Makeup.  Can’t wait till the next time I get to hang with these lovely ladies!

A couple months back I shared an elegant maternity session of a very special couple in our lives – Briana and Zach – who moved here to NENC with the Coast Guard earlier this year.  We’ve come to love these people and feel pretty darn special that they have graced us with an extra face to love in the Manning Family! Baby Roslyn was born December 5th and is perfect in EVERY way. We had some fun over the Christmas holiday taking some photos to document this special time with their tiny new person!

(P.S. The adorable and super cozy pants are from TheElephantPants.com!)

Bethany and Grayson met through a study abroad trip through their college.  They met in the RDU airport as the group set off to travel together and by the end of the trip they knew without a doubt there was something between them.  They were officially a couple later that year.

5 1/2 years later, Grayson proposed to Bethany at RDU airport – where they met.

We got to meet their beautiful faces for the first time in March of this year as we photographed Bethany’s brother’s wedding! Rachel & Josh :)   It is such an honor when we get a chance to celebrate with the same family twice!

Bethany and Grayson chose to incorporate the celebration of Christmas for their day. Rose Hill Plantation‘s holiday decor was fabulous and it it was perfect for a chilly, winter wedding! A winter wedding that, in fact, got to witness the FIRST snowflakes of the year! It was quite exciting.  Bethany also wore her mother’s wedding dress which is a special thing we don’t often get to witness. It fit her perfectly. If you missed the blog post of her bridal portraits, be sure to go check them out! Lastly, the bride and groom were gifted a live painting on their wedding day! Dan Nelson began his painting of Bethany and Grayson on the alter during the ceremony and by the end of the night had completed their masterpiece keepsake.  It was stunning!

We are so happy we got to be a part of this beautiful and crazy fun wedding! The Band Punch entertained the reception party and was absolutely insane!  The best live talent we’ve ever seen at a wedding.  You’ll probably tell by the abundance of reception photos ;-)

Bethany & Grayson, we love you and are praying so many blessings into your brand new marriage!!

Michael and Kortni planned their wedding in 30 days.  You read that right – THIRTY days!  Any of you who have ever played a roll in planning a wedding, please join me in a standing ovation for this couple! That is one heck of an accomplishment and I am so happy to say the day went perfectly.  

Michael comes from a pretty special family.  His mother, Victoria and Step Father, Junior were my very first wedding couple!  I photographed their wedding in 2008 which, unbeknownst to me at the time, would be the kickoff God had been planning for a new career. We joke now about how wayyyy … ummm… different.. my photographs of their wedding are to what I take now (lol!) but we fully plan to remedy that this June as we are cooking up a special shoot for them to celebrate their 10 year anniversary, which means the 10 year anniversary of my wedding business as well!  It will be fun!

But needless to say when Mike asked if we could photograph their wedding, I was all over it.  I knew he and Kortni had been together for a while now and had the most adorable son, Chase (who I got to photograph as a teeny newborn, too!) and I was thrilled they were planning to make their union as a family official.

January 13 was a chilly, windy day but at least that crazy snow and single digit temperatures from the week prior had passed just in time for them!  We shivered through a first look to start their afternoon and went straight into an intimate wedding in the backyard of one of their friends.  They were surrounded by their family and closest friends as they exchanged vows.  Directly after the ceremony they had their first dance surrounded by sparklers! We’ve seen a sparkler first dance one other time and it makes that moment so romantic and special!  Afterwards everyone gathered inside with Pizza and Wings and a whole lotta love for the brand new Mr. & Mrs. Austin.

I’m so glad we got to share in yet another special moment with this family and look forward to SO many more in the future!

They met when Whitney was in 9th grade and Kendall was in 7th.  There was an instant connection between them.  Although they didn’t hang out for another 2 years, when they did – that same connection was still there!  They remained great friends for a while but by Whitney’s senior year they were an item – one that would never be broken :)

I was the lucky gal that got to photograph this love to celebrate their engagement.  Whitney’s smile has been the greatest source of joy for Kendall since the day they met and Kendall has never stopped sneaking little gestures into their day to show her his love.

I loved their laughter. Their honesty. Their humor.  Their comfort in each other.  They are a beautiful couple and their December wedding, exactly one year away from TODAY is going to be amazing!  You’ll be seeing these faces again in 1 year!

Bethany and Grayson were married on Saturday at the fabulous Rose Hill Plantation in Nashville, NC! Their wedding was a Christmas dream!  We even got to enjoy the first snow flakes of the year. It was the perfect wedding day memory :)  A couple months ago I met bethany at Rose Hill to photograph her bridal session and I’m happy that I can finally share them with you! I know I say this a lot but light is pure magic sometimes. As it was on this day. And how about her dress!?  It is her Mother’s! They altered it a bit, removing the neck and bell sleeves but it fit Bethany like a glove. What a special gift that she shares with her Mom.

I’m happy to share Mrs. Allison with you while they are off soaking up the sun in Hawaii, and Wedding pictures will be coming SOON!

We get to photograph new love all the time and it’s always so much fun! But every once in a while we get a chance to get some seasoned love in front of our cameras too. Last week I had just that chance! Michelle and Matt asked me to photograph a couples session of them this year to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary! All those same lovey dovey playful games I like to play with our engaged couples worked just the same on these marriage pros and it was so sweet to see how much they still adore each other after 10 years! Thank you Matt and Michelle for letting me help commemorate such an important year for you both!
