This year I have worked with the MOST amazing couples! A few years ago an amazingly sweet mom contacted me about her daughters wedding. I wasn't able to shoot that wedding, but she came back around when her other daughter got engaged(talk about making a girl feel good!). This family is absolutely the most loving, kindest family you will ever meet. They put up with my crazy life (selling a house, moving in with our grandparents, gutting a house, living in said gutted house with no kitchen, and then finally getting our life together(ish) and having a new baby!) and I can't wait to show Amber's bridal portraits and their amazing wedding shot at the State Club. Enjoy their sweet, sweet engagement session!
The Arbors is such an amazing wedding venue! It was the perfect backdrop for Susan and Kenton's wedding! I can't believe it has taken me so long to blog this amazing couple- I love them so much! Here is there beautiful wedding about a year after the fact:) Happy Thursday!
It's been so fun getting back to work after having the baby! (I know, I know...a baby post coming soon!) Courtney and Robbie's engagement shoot was a dream! After having to push it to a few different dates because of seasons changing, etc., I think it was all kismet! We had amazing light, amazing locations and a ton of fun together. Have a look at just SOME of our favorites! You know I am a sucker for RED. Love these! Happy Voting Day!!
Ya'll...I'm coming up for air! Sorta! Our sweet, new little baby is amazing and I will be making his post soon! Scout Lee Hartsell was born on 8-1- 2017 and we had stolen our hearts! But seriously, 3 kids is no joke! Time has officially gotten away from me- and oh yeah, we are still re-doing our house! (you an follow it's insta at @downtownacres). Life, without question, has been nuts, but we are slowly settling into our new normal. Sharpe started Kindergarten ( a whole post in and of itself) and FINALLY pre-school started back this week, so there is SO MUCH LIGHT at the end of this long, and very pregnant summer that we had which ended in bringing our new guy home! I can't wait to share more! Today, there is no time for crying and prepping posts about my children(which is why I would cry) so I'm just going to share some other loveliness instead!
Work-wise, I have been sitting on these images for months just dying to show you! Wesley and Hayden are getting married in Blowing Rock and we headed to the hills for their engagement session. We had such a magical time and I can't wait for this wedding next year! My favorite part of hanging out with them was hearing about their love story- they met at a summer camp when they were SO YOUNG. Have stuck together all this time, even though they were states apart! So cute! I think because Joe and I had somewhat of a whirlwind romance from first meeting to getting married, I have this special love for those who have been together since before they could drive and are making their dreams of marriage come true. Love this session and these people!
The fog is finally lifting on our remodel! I can sense that my brain is clearer from all the visual clutter that we have been living in these past 8+ months! Between packing up the old house, living in my grandmaw's basement, living with no kitchen, putting the house back together, getting pregnant(hello first trimester)…so much blogging was left undone! I have been so loyal to this blog these past 8 years, that this has KILLED me! But there were only so many hours in the day. My superwoman cape just got up and left, so blog, I am so sorry, but I hope to do better:)
Thankful that Mollie and Brock trusted me with their wedding day! I love shooting at First Pres in Concord- their November wedding had amazing weather and we even managed to have enough light after their ceremony for more photos than we were expecting. Their reception was rocking all night and we loved celebrating with them! Enjoy some of my favorites from their special day!
