Glamour and Grace | Fiesta Inspired Wedding

From the blog of Glamour and Grace.

Bright florals, citrus details, and colorful prints make this the perfect inspiration for a summery fete. The long sleeve lace gown is everything you could want in a wedding dress: elegant, sophisticated, yet sexy. And with fun details like a sangria bar, you can bet your guests will be in love too!

This session took place in the beautiful countryside of New Hill, NC, at a ravishing and sweet venue named The Bradford. Tucked away following a serene little driveway rests this 2 story house that caters to all things wedding and events. It was a pleasure to photograph in the space, but more so a treat to be able to collaborate with the owners of the house. We loved styling and staging this little beauty and really made it something extra spectacular. For more images, please visit our feature on Glamour and Grace.

Bethany | Durham, NC Bridal Portraits

It's taken some time, but I can finally start to see some true progress in my business. To have a dream of owning your own business and actually putting forth the constant effort of building it are two vastly different avenues. For years, I'm talking years, I have dreamed of working for myself, for the people who love my craft. To say it has been hard is an understatement, in its truest form.
With the limited time that I do have, I can't help but to think of more photography! Ha! This is the downfall of being a photographer; everything I see I think of how beautiful it would look on canvas. A blessing and a curse--all the same. That's what happened with Bethany. Always thinking of the next big thing I can do. She was it.
I met Bethany a couple of years ago when I was hustling in photography school. I helped with a few shoots with her, and oh my God, I thought she was gorgeous! I reached out to her some time ago and mentioned I would love to get her in front of MY camera. And? She totally took me up on that! I put together an impromptu session within a few days and let me tell you--she rocked it!
We started off the day at Makeup For Your Day's studio in Raleigh, NC. Those ladies are killer, and I can never truly thank them for the work they do for me. Once the beauty portion was done, Bethany and I headed to the Eno. I had found this eery little cabin a while ago and thought "this is it, I am using that creepy little cabin." So we marched right on out there like we owned it and set up camp. Bless Bethany as she had been running on only a few hours of sleep, but I could never tell. How did I end up knowing so many amazing people?

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!

Valentina | The Kings Daughters Inn | Durham, NC Bridals

Have you ever met someone and just instantly thought "Oh My God, this lady is gorgeous!" Yep, I said that with Valentina. She has such a sweet sweet beauty that completely surrounds her and the people she comes in contact with. And, she has a contagious laugh! Just wait til you see these images, there is no way you can not agree.

We decided to do her bridal portrait session at the Kings Daughters Inn, located in the heart of Durham, NC. The staff there were oh so friendly and made Valentina and our crew feel so incredibly welcome. We can not thank this wedding venue enough!

Makeup For Your Day provided the extraordinary beauty service that really accentuated Valentina's already beautiful face. It is always an extreme joy working with this company, they really do know how to make a lady feel completely special on her wedding day.

Tre Bella provided the florals and the wedding gown. Tre Bella is a wedding and special events florist, as well as one of the triangle's premier wedding gown boutiques. We were so happy to work with local vendors, especially ones located in Durham, NC for her bridal session. Seriously, all of the vendors were great!
