Sunny & Dewy | A Spring wedding at Circle M Farms by Beau Monde Venues

Spring is always an exciting time in the Carolinas because that means wedding season is back in full swing. The trees are green again, the air is warm and a cool breeze is normally blowing.

Sunny & Dewy had the most beautiful day at Circle M Farm,(https://www.beaumondevenues.com/circle-m-farm) a venue by Beau Monde.(https://www.beaumondevenues.com/) The white farmhouse is the perfect place for the wedding party to spend the night after the rehearsal dinner, so they wake up at the venue on the wedding day.

Makayla & Trevor | An engagement session full of nature on family land

Sometimes a couple comes along and it feels like I have known them forever. For me, Makayla and Trevor were those people. I was met with smiles, hugs, and felt right at home as we hopped on the side by side to drive to our first location on their family land. Makayla wanted the photos to be full of green nature.

A Classic Bridal Portrait Session at The Grande Victorian, Monroe NC

Dear Kathryn Invitations | A suite filled with letterpress text

I am such a stationary girl. I love browsing the “paper” aisle at TJ Maxx and opening a fresh journal to make one of my many to-do lists. So having the opportunity to photograph this stunning invitation suite made me so happy. I got to spread everything out in my studio, take my time, and capture all of the little details included in these invitations.

Nash Family | A studio session

When we decided that we were going to build a studio, I had visions of a session just like this in my head. White walls, big windows, flowy curtains. And a precious family to fill this space with love and smiles. The Nash family has been in front of my camera multiple times. From maternity […]
