meet baby azalea

Isn’t Azelea one of the most beautiful names? The beautiful name matches her beautiful little face. This little nugget couldn’t have been more perfect. Both her and her momma were like models in front of the camera.

Amanda Smith - EEEEEEEE love so much!! Thank you guys again for so amazingly capturing our wedding!!!! When all is said and done, these pictures are what I have to remind me of that perfect day, and I couldn’t be happier 😀

Molly + Derek mountain top wedding

It has been too long since I have been consistent with blogging here. I am sorry friends. Life has been busy! We have been shooting so much, it has been awesome.

We shot Molly + Derek’s wedding early this year in the mountains of Tennessee. They had a very small and intimate wedding at the top of a mountain with a view that was picturesque. I love small weddings. But I will say, their best man was my favorite of all time! Their sweet and enormous Saint Bernard, Bubba. We spent a lot of time doing portraits and having a really low key day.

joy + jamie {belmont, nc wedding}

We couldn’t have been more excited to celebrate and document Joy + Jamie’s fun wedding reception in Belmont! Belmont is just a hop and a skip from where we live. But not only is it convenient, it is one of the cutest little towns. It was an old mill town and has a lot of history. The place where Joy + Jamie had their reception is a renovated mill building called 10 Catawba. I loved the exposed brick and tall ceilings.

Once we arrived we started taking some portraits of Joy + Jamie just around town.
