NOH8 Campaign Photos | Grace Valentine and Katie Avalanche For Equal Rights

Hey everyone! While Grace Valentine and Katie Avalanche were in town last weekend, we wanted to shoot a NOH8 series to kick off Pride Month. As a big supporter of gay rights and equality for all, this shoot was very important to me. I was more than happy to shoot this for one of my favorite couples in the world.

Get involved and speak up. There is no room in this world for the intolerance and prejudice that same sex couples still face every day.

Adorable Kigurumi Love! | Grace Valentine x Katie Avalanche in Kigu’s!

Hi guys! Over the weekend, I imported a few model buddies from New York and Philly to come down and hang out with me and to shoot the launch photos for Hypnotic Sweet Treats’ new line: Creepy Candy. While getting ready for our Hypnotic Sweet Treats launch photos, we got super sidetracked by shooting the lovely Grace Valentine and Katie Avalanche in their kigurumis. They are just the cutest little things. I was bouncing around and running in circles because it was so cute. I couldn’t handle it. CUTENESS OVERLOAD. >.< Ahhhhhhh!

Heather + Adam’s Wedding!

Hey guys!! It’s been a while since I’ve put up a wedding post, so here ya go! While I was in Wilmington last week, my old buddy and photography sensei Chris Van Atta asked me if I’d like to be second shooter on a wedding he had coming up. OF COURSE, I said I’d love to! It was so so so great to be reunited with my buddy after almost a year of not shooting together. Isn’t that insane?! UGH. So that led me to meet Heather and Adam, a wonderfully spunky couple that goes by “Heat” and “Addy” —  Love it!

So sweet! While Heather was getting ready at the Hilton Riverside, Adam was holding down the fort at the beautiful St. Thomas Preservation Hall. It was a cool time of day for lighting in the hall!

Here are some shots of the green/blue peacock theme!

Here we go!!!

Presenting the couple! Yay!

Awww what an awesome ceremony. So during the switch from wedding chapel to reception party room, we hit the streets of downtown Wilmington, NC for some fun family photos.

Vintage style kissin’ in the street. That’s where it’s at!

On our way back to the reception, we made a pit stop outside of Yosake, where Heather and Adam shared their first date. Awww. 🙂

The reception was a lot of fun too! I spent most of the night assisting Chris with lighting but here are a few quick shots of Heather and Adam’s first dance!

Well guys, that’s it! I hope you enjoyed Heather and Adam’s Wilmington wedding!
Until next time! xo
