Ok November, where did you go?! We have had our busiest fall to date, so this poor blog has taken a back seat to getting work out the door. BUT, get excited! It's about to be a blogging marathon around here! 8 weddings to blog, 5 engagement sessions, and some seniors as well as personal stuff...Ya'll keep tuning in!
First up is Melissa and Ben! We had a wonderful time exploring in and around Wilmington, where they first met. It was a fun and nostalgic time! We had beautiful light- though it was quite chilly! These two were troopers and I love the variety of shots we were able to get- from campus to the beach. Here are some of my favorites from our shoot- how cute are they???
Amie and Matt's wedding was simply a dream! Amazing planning and execution by Ginger with Hey Love! Events. We loved this whole wedding....the mix of gold and silver metallics, the gorgeous day we had, the love shared by these two- who grew up as next door neighbors! It was sweet and laid back the whole day- everyone just excited to share in the joy of these two tying the knot! Of course Vanlandingham is one of our most favorite venues of all time and we love to get out there any chance we can. Amie and Matt had a first look, which really helped us to be able to use all of the beauty the venue has to offer. Amie was just a vision in her dress- I swear the girl doesn't take a bad photo! And the color palette mixed with the metallic accents was simply timeless and stunning! Matt shined up pretty nice, too;) We could not ask for better couples...we enjoyed every second! Here are just some of our favorites from the day- so hard to choose! Don't forget to watch the slideshow at the end for more photos. Happy Monday!
I am quite used to all different parts of my life colliding in this business, but this is a fun one! I met Margo my freshman year of college while she was still in highschool while I was a Young Life leader. Margo and her group of friends were my first "younglife girls" and it was such a special time in my life! I spent countless hours watching them play volleyball, basketball and softball out at Farmville High School...It's pretty much all there is to do in Farmville! I will always remember those sweet times and I am so excited to be a part of this sweet time in her life, too! I am so happy she met Brad and these two are so happy together. Here are some of my favs from their engagement session. Can't wait for next year!
I have loved getting to work with Emily and Penn! I am happy for them that their day has come and gone, but sad for me! Joe and I were so blessed to be a part of their big day- and since Joe and Penn grew up together, it was fun to see so many familiar faces- and some we haven't seen in a LONG time!
Emily had a great vision for their wedding. The reception took place at her home church, a baptist church "way out in the country" that her parents and grandparents attended as well. The reception was at her home/family farm and had southern charm written all over it. She wanted a lot of farm to table elements and it was pulled off just beautifully. The favors came straight from the garden. Some of the flowers came straight from the flower garden Emily herself grew...her dad ground the cornmeal and grits himself and the family restored tractor delivered the wedding party to the tent reception which was located right by the freshly cut corn field. The place has so much meaning for Emily and her family-it was awesome to see everything pulled together around the farm for the celebration! Even the old barn was the "alleyway" to the reception. You all know I was in heaven! Could not have asked for better weather in late September and for the amazing family and friends that came to celebrate.
Here are just some of our favorites from the day- and trust me it was hard to choose! Don't forget to watch the slideshow at the end for more photos as well. Enjoy!
