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!!!

Romantic Wedding at The Cotton Room | Durham Wedding Photographer

I’m SO excited to share Roy and Tiffany’s wedding with you all! They had a beautiful winter wedding at The Cotton Room in December, and I was so impressed this couple built their own wedding arch for the ceremony! I honestly thought it was part of the rental at the venue, but I learned they built and designed everything themselves. My jaw literally dropped in awe when I saw it! You have to take a look for yourself below! In addition, the DETAILS and decor were so romantic, chic, and elegant. From the ring box, to the programs, to the signs, to the wedding cake and donuts, to the chocolate wedding favors, to SO much more—it was all so thoughtfully done!

Second, I remember the weather was rainy and chilly, so we didn’t have a chance to get shots outside. However, the venue was so beautifully decorated (and the big windows gave us a lot of natural light!), it didn’t stop us from getting gorgeous photos of the First Looks and portraits inside! When I captured the First Looks, I won’t forget how sweet and tender the moment was between Roy and Tiffany. When they were reading their letters to each other, let’s just say by the end I had tears in my eyes, too! I had to keep blinking back the tears so I could see through the camera and not miss the shot!

Lastly, it was truly their love for one another that was so moving. They have such a deep, genuine love for each other and for the Lord, and it was beautiful to see how God brought them together (read their story here!). I loved how they gave praise and glory to the Lord as they sang, “In Christ Alone,” for worship during the ceremony! After an amazing ceremony, reception, and dancing, we had an epic sendoff! When they came out, flower petals were thrown in the air and there was SO much energy, excitement, and cheering! There was a ton of joy and love in the air, and I absolutely loved how happy they both looked. Enjoy scrolling through some highlights below!

Celebrating a UNC Graduate | Hillsborough Family Photographer

Graduation parties are SO much fun, and such a wonderful accomplishment to celebrate with family! I had the honor to take some family photos for this UNC grad, Griffin. It was such a lively party with lots of bbq, children, and love! Griffin is the fourth of FIVE kids, the only BOY, and the fourth one to graduate from UNC! He also is the uncle to five ADORABLE nephews and nieces. I learned he is also close to his grandma, and was so happy to capture a sweet portrait of the two of them outside on the porch. Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites!!
