Frances + Joey’s Engagement

Meet Frances and Joey. They are a seriously awesome couple with a lot of really great and fun ideas. Frances’ sister, Francheska, has been a great friend of mine for many years so it was really cool to finally be able to spend some time with Frances as well. Her fiance, Joey, is hysterical. I had a great time kicking it with these two a few weeks ago.

Their first idea was to do a boxing scene. Joey is a big fan of boxing… here is how it played out.

The face-off!

Champion!

But he is a great sport 🙂

So off to the park for a picnic! Unfortunately, we got caught in a rainstorm so we took shelter in this covered area, which actually turned out to be really cool. The air was extremely muggy and foggy  so while we were waiting for the storm to stop, we snapped off a few other pics that turned out to be some of my favorites from the day. I love the hazy effect at the top of the screen from the weather on my lens.

Teeny and Itsy. Hehe!

Finally! The storm stopped!

Picnic time!!
The number 1 image of the day… drum roll please!

Haaaahaha Teeny and Itsy! I love this one!
What a perfectly sweet couple. 🙂

Jessica + Joe’s Engagement

Jessica and Joe! Jess is a good friend of mine and when she asked me to shoot her engagement session with Joe, I could not have been happier for an excuse to hang out! She’s such a sweetheart! And while Joe wasn’t a fan of getting his picture taken, I think deep down he had a little bit of fun 🙂

I love Joe’s expression in this one! I have a similar one where he is looking but this just looks so much sweeter and sincere… hehe…

Red doors!

The whole family! Too cute!!! Love all those little feets. Blaze is their pit who is the cutest thing in the world.

And that’s the story of Jess and Joe! They are getting married in Vegas next year… Best of luck you two!!

Katy + Andrew’s Vintage Engagement

Meet Katy + Andrew.
Perfect couple, huh?

We had a killer vintage outdoors engagement session the other weekend when I was in Wilmington for Dede + Josh’s wedding. A weekend full of loooove. 😉 Seriously, could they be any more perfect?


We began in Wilmington, NC where we started by doing the downtown photo circle and then went to play in the sunflower fields. I love how these sunflower photos turned out.. Just like I imagined when we were planning this shoot!
Then we headed out to Ft. Fisher, NC! This beautiful location cannot be matched by anywhere in Eastern NC, in my opinion.


Katy + Andrew played off of each other so well. I love when couples interact naturally! They had so much fun and it just shines in their photos.. Look how cute!!!


Hehehe… arm wrestling.. Katy almost had him beat!


They were having too much fun! Whoa!
Tug-of-war on the spine. He’s a chiropractor. Just for some backstory on that one haha.. Definitely the most interesting item I have ever had a couple bring to their session!!! How creative!

Then we headed over to the beach to knock out a vintage beach date. Love these, too! I just love this whole session basically. Wrapped up the day with a sweet silhouette….


I enjoyed working with Katy + Andrew so much.. I hope to work with them again soon and of course, I wish them the best of luck!!

Scott & Christina’s Engagement

Scott & Christina!

A mutual friend, Jim Graziano of snapWerx commercial photography, hooked me up with this perfect little couple! After a day of SNOW (????!) in Davidson, I feared that this engagement session would have to be rescheduled.. On the contrary, we could not have asked for more perfect weather! It was cold, but it is December, so what do you expect?

What charming smiles these two have!!!

^^ This series is too sweet!


^^ I better get a Christmas card!

We had a gorgeous sunset tonight.. Did anyone else catch it? Wow..! Romantic…

Magic. 🙂

Chance and Sarah’s Engagement

I was so thrilled when actor Chance Kelley and his fiancé, Sarah Witt, came to me with ideas for a vintage themed engagement session. Totally digging the aged film look and would love to do more stuff like this!! They are so freaking adorable and perfect for each other, it makes me sick!

I love Engagements!

Hello everyone! Today I shot engagement photos for Mark and his fiance! It was so nice to meet this whole family.. I was so surprised to see that they brought five kids with them to their engagement session! Great times with good people! We just barely lucked out with the giant storms looming around Wilmington long enough to snap these shots off under Johnny Mercer’s Pier at Wrightsville Beach.
