I’m what you could call a sentimental type, and on occasion I find myself deeply moved as I’m taking and, more often, editing photos. Last weekend on a trip to New York I had the pleasure of photographing Christina and Mark (and thier dapper pup Wellington), and while their shoot was a dream it was during the editing process that I found myself overwhelmed with emotion. The way these two look at each other radiates such love, and I feel so thankful that I was able to capture these moments. (see more photos here)
Last month Charlotte and Gordon made it official- they’re getting married! I couldn’t be happier for them, they’re such a sweet couple, and I know they will fill each other’s lives with love for decades to come.
Last spring I got to watch something really amazing- my sister Lauren get engaged! Her fiance, Bradley, proposed to her during one of our monthly ya-ya book clubs, which meant that her sisters, mother, aunts, and cousins all got to watch as she and Bradley made it official. It was incredible. This past month while we were all home for Christmas I shot some engagement portraits of these two at the UNC Arboretum (on a beautiful Christmas Eve that felt more like spring than December!). They’re so much fun to be around and I’m thankful that I get to be a part of it. I can’t wait to call Bradley part of the family.
I love photographing a couple that is fun, upbeat, and willing to try new things. From standing on benches to the obligatory desaturated jumping in front of urban graffiti shot, Justin and Miranda were a blast to shoot.
Aaron and Megan are two of our closest friends, so when they asked for engagement photos I was equal parts thrilled and terrified. I loved shooting them, they were the best combination of comfortable, relaxed, and adorable.
