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 ;-) …

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!

Laura and Ben got married last month, elopement style! We had been talking with them about a small January wedding but when Laura messaged and said they decided to elope early instead, I was thrilled for them!  We had their November engagement session on the calendar but to our joy, that engagement session turned into a post-wedding Bride and Groom shoot :)  We had so much fun getting to know Laura and Ben and documenting their new love!

They chose Colonial Williamsburg as the location for their shoot and the Fall color was most definitely on our side.  I could shoot in this area ALL the time. It’s gorgeous! As was this gorgeous couple.  You can imagine all the looks they got walking down the busy streets in their classic wedding attire.

Thanks so much for allowing us to be a part of this special time for you, Mr. & Mrs. Benton!

    Louie & Claudia Reeder - Congradulations on these beautiful pictures, the two of you look so good and in love. We wish you only the best that God can give you and a long happy marriage and life together. Love you, Granny and Grandad.ReplyCancel

I have loved reconnecting with so many people this fall through adding on family sessions again! I graduated high school with Amber and got to photograph her son Conner when he was born 3 years ago.  I was so happy she invited me back to photograph She and her sweet Conner again this fall! He’s grown into such a handsome fella and we had a great time catching up and hiking around Amber’s family home in Hertford, NC.

Can’t wait for the next time!

I go pretty wayyy back with the Whitehurst Fam.. All the way back to high school actually.  Chris was my marching band instructor his very first year of teaching (I marched with the trombone if you’d like to picture that for a sec!) and my family knew Mandy and her family well through our local church community.  I remember thinking it was a match made in heaven when I heard Chris and Mandy were an item!  I’ve had the joy of documenting their growing family every few years since Gavin came into their life.. beginning with some crazy oversaturated photos with terrible angles about 8 years ago (thanks for pulling that old album out to remind me how far I’ve come, Mandy!) and then some much, MUCH more properly composed photos 5 years ago as they welcomed baby Alex to their pack.  ;-)

This year, we chose to photograph at their lovely new home in Camden doing everything they normally do as a family.  The boys play legos, wrestle with Dad, Snuggles on the couch, a little (not so normally allowed!) jumping on the bed, tickle parties and taking a walk down their neighborhood.  I love how naturally they love!  The  happiness this family exudes between each other is food for the soul and I can’t wait to get another fill in a few more years!

    Laura - Beautiful pictures of a great family who loves one another intentionally.ReplyCancel

They grew up in different parts of the country but that didn’t stop fate from bringing them together 11 years ago!  Melissa was from Iowa and James is from Warrenton, NC.  He moved out to Iowa for work and in being in a new place, knowing no one, asked a guy he worked with if he knew anyone in the area he could introduce James to.  Steven, actually knew a girl he went to church with who was about James’ age and happened to be single. Stewart set them up on a blind date and that’s how it began!

Their relationship grew and eventually it was time for James to move back home to NC.  He brought his Iowa girl with him :)

They live in the sweetest little historic home in Warrenton surrounded by many of James’ family. We photographed their engagement photos on the property of the home they live in as well as a few other places in the area that are special to their family.

I enjoyed every minute of getting to know this couple and witnessing their love!  Their wedding in April is going to be a FUN celebration!
