PORTRAIT & WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER serving Raleigh & Wilmington north carolina

Madison is all kinds of beautiful as you can see from these images! She rocked her session and I loved getting to know her and her mom. Madison knew she wanted a country vibe so after we ran through some suggestions, I recommended Yates Mill County Park. Yates Mill ended up being the winner. After […]

This was one of those sessions that I was super excited to shoot! Not only was I doing a senior session for Casey, but we were doing it at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington – which is where I will officially be attending come August! Casey was getting ready to graduate with her […]

I had the most amazing Spring afternoon capturing these beautiful couples for their senior prom at Gregory Vineyards! I choose to shoot at Gregory Vineyards for the beautiful lush green and pop of color I knew the prom dresses would add. Seeing all of these stunning ladies and handsome gentlemen had me reminiscing on my […]

When I received the inquiry from Hannah, I was so excited and kind of in awe! I knew of Hannah through her mom – a teacher at my high school who taught my freshman history class. It felt like a full circle moment – I remember sitting in her mom’s class and seeing Hannah around […]

Trying to change outfits in a public state park is not always easy, but boy did we make it work! We might of had shoes and clothes hangers lying around but Levi & Stevie did what they had to! When Stevie inquired about doing a couples session I was completely on bored and I was […]

They were walking towards the spot, getting closer and closer. We rushed to clear the gazebo in the center of Battery Park in Charleston, South Carolina. The area was full of people coming and going as we tried to get ready for the perfect moment. How It Began I had just come home from work […]

As we all know, NC weather changes faster than we can blink. So it was no surprise when we had to reschedule Hannah & Thomas’s engagement session. In the days before, of course, rain was predicted once more. We decided to stick with our plans in hopes the weather would change, and thankfully, in true […]
