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 and Danuel | Williamston, NC Wedding

Oh my sweet goodness! I am so so happy to have Courtney and Danuels wedding images ready for you guys to view! I met Courtney a few years ago at our Alma Mater, NC State. We became instant friends from the beginning, and I have been so thrilled to share with her many memories on her wedding day.

The day started out at Courtney's sisters house near Bear Grass, NC. If you have never been to northeastern North Carolina, it is a part of the country that has one of the best steakhouses in America--Deadwood. Seriously, it's amazing and you should definitely check it out if you are in the area! Afterwards, Courtney met her parents for their very own first look. Courtney and Danuel wanted to keep with the tradition of only seeing one another at the altar, however her parents were another story! I loved this little detail. It gave the parents that first look of their baby girl in her wedding dress--it was precious to watch.

The venue set upon the Roanoke river in Williamston, NC and had the best views imaginable. The venue, Moratoc Park, was a sacred place to Courtney as her grandfather use to take her there to go fishing. Danuel wanted her to have there wedding day at this very special venue to incorporate her Grandfather since his passing. He was definitely there in spirit!

All in all, the wedding was beautiful and in every way Courtney and Danuel! This couple has grown so much to my heart--its been a dream collaborating with this sweet couple from beginning to end. I, sincerely, wish the two of you a lifetime of love and happiness.

Cheers!

Joy | Durham, NC | Bridals

You guys!!!

I mean, don't you just love a good bridal session?! I have to admit, these are probably one of my favorite portrait sessions to do. It acts as "me time," for the bride, and also gives you some set images to mull over before your big day!

Below is a set of images taken of our model Joy. She's gorgeous, and not just your average kind of pretty. I love that dark hair of hers! Paired with a bright lip, she's the perfect Snow White for the summer. Both dresses, which can be found at Tre Bella in downtown Durham, are breathtaking on her! As always, Makeup For Your Day did an amazing job on prepping this swoon worthy lady for her beauty close-ups!
