Cody Creek Bridal Portraits | Dobson, NC Wedding Photographer

Carol Anne has to be one of the sweetest and most down to earth people I have come in contact with. I was over the moon when she decided to have bridal portraits taken as that meant that I could see her again right before the wedding.

Carol decided to do her session at her wedding venue located in Dobson, NC. The restaurant is called Cody Creek and it has this serene look to it, bountiful in greens with the cutest little chapel and gazebo. This was the perfect place for her portraits! Just the right amount of southern!

My favorite images are the black and white ones found later in this post, but the ones of her and her pup are just adorable! It was so hard to pick favorites with this session! I am in love with the veil images, as well. Carol wanted to incorporate her mother's veil for her wedding day look and I think that is the sweetest gesture of all.
 

 
Kelsi | Outer Banks, NC | Somerset Place Bride

I have to admit, Kelsi's bridal session is one of my favs! We started off the day in Belhaven, and literally ended it in the northern part of the Outer Banks. As most of you know, I am originally from northeastern North Carolina, so when Kelsi gave me free range to photograph her wherever--I took her to some of the most gorgeous places in North Carolina (they just so happen to be in OBX, ha!).

I love these images of Kelsi. She has such a kind soul--not like the old lady kind of soul, but the soul that inspires you, pokes at you to create and invigorate. It's like a breath of fresh air around her and its unbelievably infectious. I am so thankful for this young lady. I can not wait to hear your thoughts on her bridal session!

Courtney | Bridals | Somerset Place in Creswell, NC

Oh my word, y'all! I have been dying over here waiting to post these gorgeous beauties to the blog! The wait was well worth it. Yesterday Sean and I drove down to good ol' Williamston, NC to photograph Courtney and Danuel's sweet wedding! Since Danuel has now married his beautiful bride, I can now show the world our bridal session.

Courtney and her mom met me at Somerset Place in Creswell, NC. It's crazy--I grew up native to this area and this was the first time I ventured to this part of the world. Needless to say, I am so glad they did! It is the sweetest little old plantation house with scenery meant to make your jaw drop. I highly recommend to visit here if you are ever in the area. 

Since Courtney's wedding was "Southern" themed, she thought Somerset Place would be the perfect fit for her session! I can not say that I blame her for thinking that! Enjoy these portraits of Mrs. Denny!

There are some things that make me gushy with excitement... If you have been following my blog you've noticed my love for bridals. I. just. cant. help. it! I mean, look at the bride?! Brittany is absolutely gorgeous with her beautiful skin and long red hair; her beauty team must have thought of her as an absolute dream! And the gown?! Lazaro always makes ravishing gowns that seem to just be the perfect fit for my brides. And this venue, oh this venue always blows me away! I absolutely adore the Carolina Inn. If you have never walked its hallways, I highly recommend it. It is the perfect blend of traditional with modern hints. It's a dream.

All in all, this session came out beautifully! I can not wait to hear your thoughts on this gorgeous little beauty I'm presenting to you! Happy wedding day!
