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.

Jayme & Elliott | NC State Fair | Raleigh Engagement

Let's talk about how swooned I am over this session. Jayme and Elliott wanted something meaningful to them as part of their engagement session. We threw around a few ideas, and landed immediately on the NC State Fairgrounds.

Jayme, as a little girl, would always go to the plant section of the NC State Fairgrounds and spend many memories with her family there. Not only is it a beautiful spot away from the hustle and bustle of the rides, but the mums in particular make the experience so much more magical. If you have never ventured to this part of the fairgrounds, please make sure to do so next year. They are really a sight to see.

Before the park even opened, Jayme, Elliott and myself trekked out in the wee morning and found some gorgeous light nestled right there in the nurseries. It was amazing being able to be in the park by ourselves without hundreds of people walking by. Jayme wore this beautiful purple dress and Elliott matched her so well. I had to get a few spinning shots since we were there by ourselves!

Jayme and Elliott are tieing the knot next year and I am so over the moon that I will be sharing this day with them as their photographer. Although the engagement session shown below is one that I am so smitten with, I can not wait to show you our sequel in a few short weeks.

Sarah and Justin | Blowing Rock Engagement Session

I can not express to you how lucky I am to have the clients that I have! Not only were Justin and Sarah willing to hike around all of Blowing Rock, they were willing to start before the sun even rose! Seriously?! Like, pinch me! If you've ever done a portrait session with me then you know how much I adore that morning light! Sarah and Justin never obliged and were the best to collaborate with!

We started out the day at the beautiful Manor at Moses Cone. Being a photographer from out of town I had to do ALOT of searching and asking friends of where the perfect places would be. All of them said the Manor was absolutely gorgeous, and I could not agree more! After that we visited a few state parks, and found our way to the Viaduct--one of Justin's favorite places!

At the end we even got some beautiful and sweet images with them and their dog Winchester. When I say that I have never met a more well-behaved dog, I mean that! He was all so grown up from the last time I met him [which was when he was a puppy], and it made my heart sing when he became the best little pup in our session.

Please enjoy some of my favorite portraits from an all around great couple. Congratulations Sarah and Justin!
