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!!!

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!!

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!
