Hello and hi y’all. So excited to share this wedding with you today! These two are a fun and silly duo with sensational senses of wit and humor. People like Sarah and Casey embody such an honest and pure sense of love. It was truly a joy to shoot them. Married this past fall, their lovely wedding day consisted of laughter, overcast skies, the most beautiful sunset ever, simple and sweet details, and goats of course. We were so excited to be back at the most fabulous little goat farm, Celebrity Dairy Inn. We loved getting to see our cool little buddy, Roswell the cross eyed Siamese cat again. We’re pretty sure he runs that joint. So happy for these two!!

Amanda + Rhys. Raleigh. Engagement

We’re super happy to finally share this shoot with y’all today! We’ve been so eager to blog this shoot ever since we shot it.

Amanda & Rhys met while in college after they both auditioned at the same time for an a Capella group. They both got in and the rest is history! Early last December, we set out to do some trail blazing with Amanda & Rhys and their adorable pups and had the best time with them at Lake Johnson, a long time favorite local park of theirs. It was really the perfect setting because not only is it a spot they love to get out to stay active and spend time together, but it’s the spot where Rhys proposed to Amanda, with their furry kids in tow too of course! It was a bit uncharacteristically warm for the December day that it was, but beautiful nonetheless. We love their story and the way in which they were able to be so at ease together and also with us. Feeling like we could keep “getting to know” these two forever is so great and we just can’t be more excited for their wedding day and hope we’ll get to see lots more of these two!

Kara, David + Yvonne. Portraits

This family is so special to us. We love Kara & David! We were there to photograph their engagement session, their wedding and now their adorable little addition to the family, baby Yvonne. We were so excited to meet their new baby girl, for the first time that day. We went to their house and can’t even put into words how elated we were to see their home embellished with many of their photos we’d been so honored to document for them before.

We kept things light and relaxed. Yvonne kept us grinning ear to ear and had us laughing as well over the freaking amazing things she was doing. She is so precious.  The nursery was so cute and the abundance of natural light that just flowed into the room was beautiful.

Seeing the joy and love show so profoundly on Kara and David’s faces was so sweet. They were just glowing in their new roles as mommy and daddy and we couldn’t help but feel swelled up in the excitement and love.

Thank you, Kara & David for blessing our lives and giving us the greatest honor.
