Alex and Maddie’s wedding day was special in so many ways. Especially since many that attended have watched their relationship grow since they were 10 and 12! You heard that right. These two got their beginnings in a community theatre rendition of High School Musical back in grade school. They didn’t start dating ’til high […]

I’ve always wondered what shooting a destination wedding would be like and now I don’t have to! Sam and Bri chose to get married in Outer Banks, North Carolina and they brought me down to photograph it! It’s always an honor to be the one to document a wedding in the first place, but having […]

Destination Wedding at The Currituck Club in Outer Banks | Sam & Bri

One of my favorite things about weddings is seeing the beauty that can come from unexpected moments.

It’s the responses to those that typically become the things we most remember. […]

The beauty of a wedding day isn’t solely in the planned details, but more so in the relationships represented and the words spoken. Saturday was the perfect representation of that.

Summer weddings are always so beautiful! Between the bright greens and the blue skies, you couldn’t ask for anything better!
