Susan + Andrew | Haw River Ballroom Wedding

I had the honor of capturing Susan and Andrew’s wedding this summer at the beautiful Haw River Ballroom in Saxapahaw! I met Susan and Andrew through the BSF Raleigh Young Adult’s Class, and they have grown to be sweet friends to my husband and me. They are truly a sweet and joyful couple, and have a great sense of fun (as you’ll see in the photos below!).

I remember the forecast kept going back and forth between rain and sunshine till the day of the wedding. Fortunately, most of the rain stayed away once we started capturing photos! One of the most touching moments that day was when Susan and Andrew prayed together before the ceremony. Y’all, it was seriously SO beautiful, tender, and touching that I started to get tears in my eyes when they were praying!

Another fun and special aspect of the wedding was the reception. The wedding party surprised all the guests by doing the YMCA on the stage, and it was super AWESOME, so well coordinated, and the crowd went wild! Also, they had the coolest and most unique alternative to a bouquet toss and garter toss; they did a BEAR TOSS. Yes, you hear that right! A bear toss! Susan tossed a UNC teddy bear and Andrew tossed a NC State teddy bear (those were their alma maters), and the crowd absolutely LOVED it!

There were SO many more beautiful and awesome moments, and I wish I could share them all with you! Below are just some of my favorites that capture the joy and excitement of the day! Congrats again, Susan and Andrew, and may God bless your marriage!

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!!
