It was such a joy to be around these two; they are clearly made for each other! Becca was such a carefree bride and Jonathan was the life of the party. From their engagement session and Becca’s bridal, to their stunning wedding, we have been tremendously blessed to witness this couple’s love and excitement as they prepared for, and celebrated, their wedding. The celebration was held at the enchanting Villa Franca Estate of China Grove, NC, tucked away in billowy fields and rolling hills filled with southern charm. The wedding was a dream to shoot- absolutely gorgeous in every aspect. Most importantly, the love that permeated and surrounded this couple was so sincere. Each of the guests, from near and far, brought so much warmth and love to bless the happy newlyweds- we couldn’t get enough of it!

Becca & Jonathan- may love and happiness continue to follow you everywhere you go! Thank you for letting us celebrate with you!

Thank you, lovely blogs, for featuring our work. We are so delighted and honored!

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!
