Mike & Johanna’s Wedding

Hi guys!! Last weekend I had the privilege of shooting Mike and Johanna’s wedding on May 5, 2012.  It was SUCH a beautiful day. They got married aboard the “N 2 Deep” yacht (Championship Yacht Charters) on Lake Norman, NC. We were picked up from Travis Pointe in Mooresville, NC which is an AMAZING venue in itself. That property is just incredible, and a great option if you are looking to get married in the LKN area. While I am based out of Washington, DC, I have a special attachment to LKN and love it more than any place in the world.

Let’s start with the dress and the details of the day. The colors of the wedding were Carolina blue and white. This combo is so gorgeous and one of my favorites!

Check out this amazing dress! I love how casual yet completely elegant and beautiful it was. Just wait til you see it on Johanna… wow!

I am obsessed with these GUESS shoes!

How adorable are these flower girl baskets?

These flowers are SO beautiful. The florist really knocked it out of the park. I also love the touch of the bedazzles in the bouquet and boutonniere and the carolina blue bow to tie the flowers to the theme.

Drum roll, please! Ceremony time! Here are a few highlights from the ceremony.

Everyone loves flower girls and ring bearers! These are some of the cutest I’ve seen!

Cue Johanna! Mike sees his bride for the first time. Aww! Always my favorite part!

What a radiant smile!

Adorable flower girl picking up petals during the ceremony.. hehehe…

You may kiss the bride!

I now present Johanna and Mike Bohn!

Meet the wedding party!

 Now it is time for our bride and groom to relax and enjoy some drinks together and for the reception to begin!

Meet DJ Bob! We have worked other weddings together so it was great to be reunited with another vendor! Always cool to see familiar faces.

Okay… I am going to give you fair warning to brace yourself for this next set. It is potentially the cutest thing ever to hit this earth. Flower girls eating strawberries and cupcakes. See if you can handle it…

Hahaha.. Oh man. I love those two.

Check out this killer sunset from the front of the boat!

A beautiful first dance!

Dancin’ machines!

Hahaha….

As I am writing this, I am laughing recalling this. This was definitely a fun bunch! And here are a few more dancing party people to top off the night.

And the clouds broke just enough for the Supermoon to light up the sky. An amazing end to an amazing night. Thanks so much to Mike and Johanna for letting me be a part of their special day. I really had a blast hanging with y’all! Best of luck to you both!

Kaitlin Davin

Hey guys!! I am VERY, VERY excited to release to you the photos from my photoshoot last week with the incredibly talented Kaitlin Davin. She is an extremely beautiful person and an amazing dancer. I can’t rave about this girl enough! I had such a great time hanging out with her for this fun shoot, mixing in headshots, fashion, and dance.

Now, I’m not a huge fan of studio, so I figured we would just take a few headshots on a gray backdrop and then hit the streets. Kaitlin jumped right in and NAILED it on one of the very first shots. Doesn’t she look like a covergirl model?! Gorgeous.

Out to the streets! This girl loves Beyonce as much as I do, so I LOVED jamming to B on location. So great.

^Love that shot! One of my personal favorites of mine. ❤

Oh! I should also mention that it was near freezing that day! We had to stick close to the house so we could keep going in and warming up. Insanity. Kaitlin was a champ, though!

I just love how her body curves with the arch. I love shooting dancers!

LOVE THIS SHOT SO MUCH! Ugh.. I just love this whole session. I can’t pick a favorite shot!

Great attitude! So pumped on these! Isn’t her outfit perfect??

Allllright, I know this was a long post, but that’s a wrap on Ms. Kaitlin Davin. Keep an eye on this one… She’s got a bright future!

Tepy’s 70s Disco Dance Party

Meet Tepy & Matt.
Over the weekend, I traveled to DC to document Tepy’s birthday bash that her husband, Matt, threw for her. The photo above was taken in their living room after Matt’s living room-to-70s dance club transformation was complete. After bringing in the dance floor, the professional lights, the DJ stand, and traveling a FANTASTIC (hehe…) photographer from North Carolina, this DC disco party was ready to roll!

Pretty good disguise for a living room, eh?

A few of the disco party-goers all decked out in their 70s gear! I love these!

Snacks are in the kitchen!

And drinks are downstairs!


The most elaborate display of birthday cupcakes I’ve seen in a while!  Digging it!

What’s a theme party without a photobooth setup? I am having a blast sifting through these photos…. I’m sure you can only imagine! Hehehe….

Hahaha… still laughing over these!
Time to bring this post to an end… a group shot of party-goers that happened to be downstairs at the time:

 A great night, great people, and a great party. I hope people are talking about this one for a long time!!
That’s it for me! xx

Hey everyone!! Today was my DAY OFF from the movie! Decided that I needed to take a serious breather and go zen out shooting some yoga poses for my best friend, Nicole. Loving how they turned out!!!

She is so talented and strong! I am so proud of her!

Once it started getting a little bit darker, I decided I wanted to play with some flash. Time to light her up!! Again.. love the results! The colors turned out fantastic!

Now back to reality… work work work! Movie will be done at the end of this month and I’m fully booked until mid-May so you’ll have a lot of new stuff coming your way soon… xo!
