Megan and David are just the best!  I was so excited to be able to work out our schedules so that I could shoot their wedding!  Childress Vineyards is one of our absolute favorite venues and again it did not disappoint!  Little did these two know that in mid November it would be literally FREEZING, but WOW- we had THE MOST AMAZING LIGHT we shot in all year.  And really, the terribly cold temps didn't start until after dusk, so thankfully they did a first look and we had the majority of our photos taken before the ceremony in not too bad of temps.  And Megan's dress, I die.  It was one of my top 5 dresses of the whole year!  Truly unique and had the most perfect fit!  While I dream of spring sticking around for good, I will miss this golden light that only the fall can produce...Check out this beautiful fall wedding and be sure to watch their photo fusion video at the end as well.  Nothing makes me happier than two people in love!  Happy Monday!

How about this backdrop for a first look?! Love.

Some dramatic lighting in the barrel room at the vineyard:)

And a special thanks to these amazing vendors! Chelish Moore FlowersKerri Leigh Weddings + Events and Bella Amore Makeup.

 

We had the extreme pleasure of shooting not only 1, but 2!! weddings for Niyati and Shane!  After shooting their wedding in Ithaca, NY we shot their Indian Wedding in Raleigh, NC the next weekend!  These two are probably sick of us;) but we just love them to death!  I love that amazing colors and traditions surrounding their Indian Wedding.   There was eye candy everywhere we looked!  It was fun to be part of this celebration-Niyati had two amazing outfits (Shane, yours weren't too shabby, either!) and she is still my muse.  Niyati has the absolute best skin of anyone I have ever shot and I happen to think that Red is her color (although I am sure she wants it to be purple!)  Have a peak at their special day- I love the vibrancy and the beauty of all of it!  Have a peak at their fusion at the end, too!  Happy Weekend everyone!



 
  1. Niyati:

    Incredible!!! You are truly gifted! My mom was hoping the picture of her with you from the reception would make the cut for the blog ;) I am picking that to go in her album for sure. We love you guys & your work so much. Blog stalker alert.

What can I even say??  Lindsay's been around forever.  Quite literally.  She met my sister in Pre-K and they've been best friends ever since.  And when you and your sister are only 17 months apart, by default her friends are your friends!  She's a good one.  We've grown up together and it's been an amazing time seeing Lindsay find someone who could not be more perfect for her.  Jason is a steady, steady rock.  Sweet, kind...and just what Lindsay needs.  See, she can be snarky and has amazingly quit witted- but then there's Jason- he mellows her out, loves animals (almost) as much as she does and keeps her grounded.  I'm allowed to say this because I've known her all but like 5 years of my whole life:)  Linds, thanks for being such a great lifelong friend to my sis.  Thanks for letting us be a part of your best day. And J, thanks for being you!  We love you both!

Check out their fusion video at the end, too!

 

We loved getting to work with Stephanie and Ryan!  Last year sometime I met with Stephanie's parents who vetted her photographer choices, and I am so glad they helped to give her the two thumbs up for using me:)  Stephanie and Ryan and both of their families are simply amazing. True, salt of the earth people- and they really just came together and celebrated these two getting married and FINALLY being able to live together in the same state after dental programs kept them apart the past few years!  We loved getting to work at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden, even if it was one of the hottest days of the year!  The fun and celebration kept everyone smiling!  We never forget what a blessing it is to get to capture couples on the happiest day of their lives!   Enjoy some favorites from their big day and take a look at their photo fusion video we shot for them, too!  Happy Friday!

sweet, sweet sisters!!!  Love these three!

the perfect ring prop:)

Let's talk about when I am able to shoot the family formals after the wedding in perfect, backlit sun.  Amazing!
