    They are such a cute couple! I love their ceremony site. It’s so southern looking and romantic. I like that the bridesmaids were wearing different shades of purple too:)

Magazine Love + A Proposal!

February 26, 2014

I was thrilled to finally get my copy of Occasions Magazine’s big wedding issue, which featured Amy and Michael’s beautiful yellow and grey Naples Florida wedding!  Loooooved their wedding:)

NC Wedding Photographer 122

I also wanted to share the craziest thing that happened during Michael and Amy’s big day.  Right after I had photographed the ceremony sight at La Playa Resort in Naples, while I was waiting for the first guests to arrive, I was approached by a man who was staying at the resort.  He told me he was about to propose to his girlfriend, and asked if I would mind taking a few shots!!!  Of course I said yes, and hid in the bushes while he popped the question:)  I was delighted to send them the photos the following week, a record of that life changing moment in a day full of love;)

Stephen and Leah ~ A Connecticut Wedding

February 24, 2014

This wedding was really special to me because the bride is my beautiful cousin Leah:)  I remember meeting her for the first time when she was a tiny baby and I was just 8 years old.  I can’t believe so much time has gone by and she is married to a wonderful man and ready to start a family of her own!  Leah, her mother Arlis and the planner Christina did an amazing job planning an outdoor celebration at Leah’s childhood home.  So many of the details were handmade, from the vine covered arbor to the hand carved lawn games.  Local antique shops were scoured for months for vintage cufflinks and antique table settings.  Everything was unique and personal, a truly lovely day:)

Aubrey ~ 2014 Senior Portraits

February 10, 2014

I first met Aubrey when I photographed her mom’s lovely wedding last year, and was delighted when they called me for her senior portraits!!  Seaside was a place where Aubrey has a lot of great memories, so that is where we met up for her photos.  I had so much fun and loved her energy!!

Bradley and Sarah Beth ~ Oak Island Wedding

February 6, 2014

Now that I’m settling into my new home in North Carolina, it’s time to catch up on blog posts from this fall:)  I first met Bradley and Sarah Beth when they came down to Perdido Key for a windy engagement session this past summer, and I was so excited for their wedding!  It took place at the gorgeous antebellum home at Oak Island in Alabama and was wonderfully coordinated by Mariee Ami Weddings with decor and flowers by Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market.  Everything came together beautifully on the Saturday of the wedding, including gorgeous sunshine on the lake for the ceremony.  I loved the soft pinks and ivory lace Sarah Beth chose for their colors, and for a unique twist, she chose a different bouquet for each of her bridesmaids!  To honor their beloved puppy (who looked very handsome in his bowtie!) each guest received a dog bone cookie and a donation to the local Humane Society:)

Kevin and Michelle ~ Navarre Beach Wedding

January 26, 2014

With Hurricane Karen on the way, Kevin and Michelle decided to change the time of their planned evening beach destination wedding to 1 in the afternoon.  Luckily everything worked out with the guests and vendors and the weather stayed beautiful!  The only sign of the approaching storm was a crazy rogue wave that swept over the entire wedding while Michelle and Kevin were doing their sand ceremony!

Larry and Sarah ~ New World Landing Wedding

December 30, 2013

Larry and Sarah are a fun Pensacola couple who had their engagement session and wedding right in the heart of their home town.  For a color palette they took inspiration from the beautiful shades of a peacock feather and each bridesmaid wore a different hue.  The ceremony and reception both took place at the historic New World Landing and everything went so smoothly.  Even the rain held off for a few moments so they could get some outdoor portraits after the ceremony!

Across the Ocean ~ Sandestin Family Session

December 26, 2013

Over and over again I realize what a small world we live in.   Four years ago I had the worst birthday ever, stuck in Guam overnight on a space-a layover with 2 babies, one of them sick and no hotels available.  Luckily there were some nice people to talk to who were in the same position.  One of them was Kattleya, and when she contacted me for a family photo session I couldn’t believe that I would be seeing her again after all this time!  It’s been such a treat to get to photograph some of the families who were in Okinawa at the same time as us and now live within driving distance in the states.  Here are a few favorites from her early morning session with her husband and two beautiful boys.

Adria and Josh ~ Atlanta Wedding

December 20, 2013

I have known Adria since we were about 14 and I was so thrilled when she contacted me to photograph her Atlanta wedding to the love of her life.  I hadn’t seen her in many years, and it was so good to see her  as lovely and vibrant as ever and glowing with happiness.  Set in a gorgeous mansion in Sandy Springs, the day was a roller coaster of emotions, especially full of laughter and joy as many friends and family came together to celebrate.  Congratulations to my sweet and beautiful friend Adria and her honey Josh as they begin their lives together in Austin, TX!

    I’m so jealous! What an amazing location to photograph! And the bride and groom are so adorable together:) There are two shots that really stood out to me. I love the one of just the two of them on the stone bridge and also the one where he is lifting her up. Both are so cute! You also did a great job capturing the details, as usual!
