Carolina and Ben drove all the way from Utah to celebrate their union in Vegas! We had the absolute pleasure of capturing their big day in the Grand Garden at the Grand Lakeside. Carolina looked absolutely radiant and just from these photos, you can tell that Ben thought so as well! The ceremony was attended by Ben’s brother, Carolina’s mother, and a surprise visit from Carolina’s sister. The intimate celebration was so refreshing and full of sincerity; we just might be falling in love with photographing elopement sessions!
Carolina & Ben- it was such an honor to be at your elopement! You two are so sweet and we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
We simply love Kemi & Terrell. This power couple serves at Forest Hill church on the worship team. Kemi is a super sweet vocalist and Terrell is a keyboard prodigy. We could not have asked for a nicer, more easy going couple to photograph. Their genuine and Godly love for each other is such a joy to behold, and we cherished the opportunity to play a small part in their celebration.
Kemi and Terrell, it was our honor to help celebrate your wedding day. We are so encouraged by your example of love and devotion and we can’t wait to witness the many ways your new household will bless the lives of others!

Sylvia and Eric blew us away with their beautiful wedding- it was a photographer’s paradise! From the beauty of historic and charming Stowe Manor to the gorgeous streaming light from this picture-perfect day, they planned a fairy tale wedding of their own. Probably due in no small part to the fact that Sylvia is, herself, a fantastic planner and photographer in her own right, Sylvia and Eric’s wedding was extremely well orchestrated and saturated with elegant details, colors, and fantastic balance of style, fashion and Southern charm.
As a testament to this lovely couple’s magnetic and outgoing personality, they had a bridal party of eighteen wonderful bridesmaids and groomsmen. From beginning to end, the day was marked with reminders of the loving relationships and friendships that Sylvia and Eric had built. To sum up the spirit of the day, Sylvia noted, “if, at the end of the day, you’re married to the person you love, then that is all that matters!” What encouraging words for all soon-to-be married couples!
We are so thankful to have been a part of the celebrations and to see this lovely couple get hitched! Sylvia and Eric, we wish you much happiness in your marriage!

The forecast last Saturday called for thunderstorms and rain. However, my 2 hour drive up the mountainous paths were quite pleasant. I was the tourist who was driving less than the posted speed limit while admiring the scenic drive (sorry, locals!). I had the absolute joy of photographing Destiny and Brian’s destination wedding in the notorious 1927 Lake Lure Inn and Spa. Not only is this place simply breath taking, but it is also filled with history. Did you know that ‘Dirty Dancing’ was filmed here?
Destiny and Brian first met each other in Georgia, moved to Arizona, and are headed for Japan right after the wedding. Since Brian serves in the Army, the couple decided to pick a place, any place, on the map for their celebration. Destiny and Brian’s wedding is the very definition of a ‘destination wedding’! With locals coming in from all over the US, we felt so fortunate to be there. Luckily, we finished up our outdoor photos right before the rain started pouring!
Destiny and Brian- thank you so much for the beautiful details! You two are so sweet. We wish you the best of luck in Japan!

It is said that Paris is the ‘city of love and light’ for many reasons. The origins of such a name must come from the towering cathedrals, streets with strung twinkle lights, and the miles of exquisite details. But as much as my imagination and sight-seeing legs can carry me, all the talk of love and Paris pale in comparison to witnessing Kimi and Niko’s love for each other.
The festivities started in the Russian Orthodox cathedral of Saint Alexandre Nevsky and the night ended with endless dancing on our own river boat. All of France also celebrated the happy couple with fireworks by the Eiffel Tower (not to mention that July 14 was also France’s Independence Day)!
What an absolute honor to be able to capture such a big day- my mind is still blown! Kimi & Niko- thank you for a beautiful time in such a lovely city. We wish you two much happiness in the coming years! Congratulations!
