Charlotte + John-Michael | Wedding at Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral

I had the wonderful honor of capturing Charlotte and John-Michael’s wedding last month! They are a cheerful and laid-back couple, and met at NC State University. They will be moving to Seattle (my hometown!) soon after the wedding because Charlotte will begin her Bioengineering graduate program at the University of Washington (my alma mater!).

There were so many sweet and tender moments throughout the day, and one of my favorites was documenting Charlotte and John-Michael praying together before the ceremony instead of doing a first look. The chapel they prayed in was absolutely beautiful, quiet, and peaceful, and was truly the perfect place to have a moment together! Another favorite moment of mine was taking group photos after the ceremony. We did an impromptu photo with all of their friends from NC State and doing the Wolfpack sign! It was such a fun photo to do!

We then headed to The Royal Banquet and Conference Center for the reception, and it was a lovely venue! The toasts from the wedding party were hilarious, and the dancing was incredible! For the sendoff, they decided to use bubbles. One of my favorite photos is one showing a bubble hovering right above Charlotte’s hand, and her expression is priceless!

Enjoy some of my favorite photos below, and BIG congrats to Charlotte and John-Michael!!!

A Sweet Maternity Session | Durham Newborn Photographer

I had so much fun taking maternity portraits for Mitch and Kirah last month at the American Tobacco Campus! They have been together for 8 years and married for almost 5 years. Mitch describes himself as the data/computers guys and Kirah as the artistic/social one, and together they love playing board games. I was so excited when they told me they’d like to incorporate a board game during our shoot because I truly believe sessions should reflect who you are as a family!

We started off the session with them playing the board game called, Santorini, and I loved seeing the way they interacted with each other. Being able to have fun with your spouse is important, and I can tell these two truly enjoy spending time with each other! We then took portraits of them together, and it was so sweet to see how they looked at each other and how they giggled together. Their joy and excitement for their baby can definitely be felt! We also incorporated an ADORABLE blue baby sweater that Kirah knitted—it seriously looked like it came out of a magazine! :)

We ended the shoot with a couple of more photos of the both of them, and I can’t express how natural and relaxed they were in front of the camera. Their laughs were effortless and Kirah was absolutely glowing! It was a pleasure to get to know the two of them and I can’t wait for them to enter the next season of life together…Baby Daniels is going to be so loved!

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from the maternity session below, and stay tuned for Baby Daniels arrival! :)

Conner and Makayla | Raleigh Engagement Photographer

I had the wonderful honor of capturing engagement photos for Conner and Makayla last month! They are wonderful friends that I know from BSF Young Adults Class in Raleigh, and have such an honest and sweet connection with each other. They met each other through a mutual friend in college and have been together for almost four years!

The weather was absolutely perfect the day of our photo shoot. The temperature was pleasant and cool, and the sun peeked out a couple of times from the clouds. Conner and Makayla were so natural in front of the camera, and basically every pose they did looked AMAZING! Usually from a photo shoot, I’d have some memorable and favorite moments, but for this session EVERY moment felt like my favorite!!! :) There were so many stunning photos, and I think it was because they radiated so much joy and excitement in each photo! They are truly one of the most kind, thoughtful, and considerate couples I know, and I’m SO excited for their future together. I know the Lord has wonderful plans for these two! Enjoy some highlights below!!
