Where to start? Michelle and Jeff, met 9 years ago by pure coincidence, little did they know they would be falling in love and getting married. Jeff and Michelle met at Tillery Tradition in Mt Gilead, NC while at a Christmas party 2013. Michelle introduced herself to Jeff, told him she was a hairdresser, and he happened to be in need of a good haircut. He was determined to get his haircut, and she was really happy to see him again! And so, all the great that comes together ha
We enjoyed sometime with this sweet couple the last week. It started on the prior weekend creating their proposal/engagement pictures. They planned that on this Friday they would officially tie the knot with only 1 witness, an officiant and both of them! Wanting something simple and very intimate is a beautiful way to honor love and commitment to one another with no further stress - Chris and Michelle are busy and they have a full schedule, still wanted only something for bo
Next fall, Shelby and Pierce will be saying I Do - And yes! their puppy 'Lambeau' will be part of all the celebrations! [for my 'puppy in weddings' lovers ] Fur babies make everything, somehow: better! They are avid Packer fans [ Go Green Bay 🧀] - And how do I know - Well - For beginners their puppy name - and we schedule the session without interfering with a game... I met them in Beaufort and we ended at her parents home in PKS for sunset pictures :) Cannot wait for my W
My job is pretty amazing, as a photographer going beyond booking the day and taking the beautiful pictures is key - And when a date is open in the calendar, we make the best efforts to accommodate the schedules of my clients. Sometimes, it involves providing solutions and answers, especially when dad is the one person planning the special day for his sweet girl who is getting married - Here is the magical day Mark, Abby's dad created for them. When this inquiry came in - Mark
When months of planning are summed up by a "let's elope..." because the health of my bride's father is far more important than to take a chance with Covid and the traveling from WV - It was a tough decision - not only all the planning was not completed but also emotionally and financially, can create small setbacks.
But, like a good couple of extraordinary people, their love kept them strong through making such decision - and still eloped... and came to The Crystal Coast s
When my couples become engaged and life has it to be a little crazy, because of a pandemic.
When my couple is made up of two essential healthcare workers, who work so hard in their health careers, there are no set schedules... Because these are the times we live in. Monica and Michael had planned for a bigger wedding, and plans changed - They opted to just have a beautiful wedding - Intimate with only parents and closest family members - Still honored all the beautiful det
THE PROPOSAL From Bride's perspective: "Friday, August 14, 2020, started off as a normal, crazy day at work. Little did I know what I had in store for that afternoon and evening. My friends (thank you, Katie) texted me about having a group dinner, which is normal for us to do.
When I got home that day, my mom casually told me that maybe I should wash my hair before dinner with my friends. Again, not an unusual comment if you know my mother, lol.
Andrew said we should stop b
I know first hand when an inquiry comes, my couples may have a faint idea of what is involved while they are planning the day. However, when it comes to your photography, one may ask: 'how many hours would I need for for the day?' OK!! Do not fret, I was there [ a bride to be with zero experience ] about 13yrs ago and while we plan our days, we read the zillion wedding magazines and blogs. We also speak to the friends who have gotten married and who have planned and gone
Where to start... Oh, yes! By mentioning that this love story is one for the books... I mean, the universe truly conspired for this to happen and took its time... The timing was perfect. Diane and Robert met in Long Island while they were 7th graders attending the same school. As years passed by - they shared many of same friends and hung around in the same spaces and places.
After graduation, naturally life happened - Diane and Robert continued to to careers, forming famil
In my bride's words: "We have been extremely lucky to have so many people impact our lives - from our parents, siblings and extended family, to our closest friends - we would not be here without each and and every one of you. Some of our best and most treasured memories together have taken place on the beautiful coast of North Carolina. We could not imagine a better place to celebrate as we embark on this next chapter of our lives together in marriage." Our couple had to post
Ashley and John were married in a very small and private ceremony - part one of two for these newlyweds. This pandemic has really tried to sabotage many of the plans made for months - somehow, all has worked as accorded, following the provisions and regulations of opening phases for the state of NC. They are both two peas in a pod and their day reflected them from beginning to end. Vows were exchanged, letters were read and happy tears were shed. Ashley parent's pup, Fritz w

My clients Renee and Larry who have been with us for over 8 years decided to re-new their vows... they simply wanted a big shindig with friends a family and good music and food, that is all... nothing over the top... Just good fun! The weather changed on us overnight. to about 45 degree and rainy outside so all preparations were moved inside the venue, which was supposed to be only for the reception- At the end ALL worked, because the main goal was to honor their 10 years tog
Savannah, Ahhh! How inlove are we with your romantic spell? And so enamored with The Mackey House and its enchanting views. This was a wonderful Georgia destination wedding weekend for some fun story telling advenures...

We have so many images to share, because it was a day filled with extremely fun dynam
We celebrate love at ALL levels - Vow Renewals are by far so commemorating and beautiful - In a world, that all moves way too fast... this lovely couple wanted to celebrate their 25 years together by having a vow renewal ceremony by the ocean with their 4 children, family and bestest friends!
Interesting fact - a hurricane had just passed about 3 days ago prior to their scheduled day and they braved all the odd and went for it no matter what! How about that resilience? We
