Slingshot Summer for Slingshot Coffee Co.

slingshot coffee

This summer, we had the privilege to do some work for our friends over Slingshot Coffee Co. They ran this amazing campaign called Slingshot Summer and partnered with a ton of amazing brands and companies that folks who drink Slingshot had the chance to win. I mean, some of these prizes were just crazy awesome. Each main prize, like this Public bicycle or the West Elm chair came with so many other great products that made sense and worked so well together. It was a ton of fun, as it always is with Jenny + Jonathan. Plus, we worked along side our good pal, Elizabeth Boyette of Good South, who did all the styling to make this whole shoot come together perfectly!

Ellie + Brett – Boone Engagement

rough ridge engagement

We have been spending a ton of time up in the mountains this summer. We love it out there and it’s certainly our second home even though we split most of our time out there between the Asheville area and the Boone area. Both areas have a lot of sentiment for us with Brett growing up near Asheville and us going to school up near Boone. Like we’ve said before, we are mountain people living in the city now. The trip up there for Ellie + Brett’s Rough Ridge engagement session was perfect. It was just cool enough to give some relief from the summer heat back in Raleigh and the light was incredible. We had most of Rough Ridge to ourselves and we used up every bit of light we could. I think we could do a shoot like this everyday and never get tired of it.

Elizabeth + Evan – Max Patch Engagement

A few images from our time with Elizabeth and Evan up in the Pisgah National Forest for their Max Patch engagement session. It was such an incredible day and although we may have stayed up there well past daylight looking for Brett’s car keys (which we never found – ask us if you want the full story – it’s rather ridiculous) with our iPhone lights and whatever other lights we could find, it made for an experience with this amazing couple that was even more memorable. So excited to be shooting them again in November up in Blowing Rock, NC. Here’s to securely placing our keys somewhere safe next time around!

We aren’t exactly sure what good deed’s we’ve done to be so blessed with such incredible opportunities to be a part of so many amazing peoples lives in return. But don’t you doubt for a moment that we wouldn’t repeat those good deeds everyday if they continue to allow us to be a part of days like Sarah & Joel’s Brown Mountain Beach wedding day. Two remarkable people, a beautiful location, tons of supportive family/friends and exchanging of vows. Plus, a pyrotechnican brother who puts on a firework display is pretty epic too. Surely enough, this wedding was easily one of our favorites to shoot and now one of our favorites to look back on.

The Fresh Exchange x Gap

the fresh exchange gap

We’ve always loved getting to collaborate with other creatives, especially ones we call our friends. Megan and Mike are just that. Every time we get together, whether its just to grab dinner or to collaborate on a project, its always an amazing time. So, we were super excited when they asked us photograph a collaboration they were working on for their blog, The Fresh Exchange, and Gap.  For this collaboration, we focused on them being a creative couple who work together. It was a ton of fun running around downtown Raleigh and shooting with them and almost just as much fun seeing the photos being shared by Gap.

Angela + Micheal – South Carolina Outdoor Wedding

emotional photographer asheville nc

Angela and Michael were married at the Timberock at Hopkins Farm in Greenville, SC. Greenville is a city that they are proud to call home. Angela is an amazing and incredible photographer in her own right, based in Greenville and Michael is the soccer coach at Anderson University. So, naturally, it was an exceptional honor to be chosen for their wedding day. All of the beautiful details and thoughtful design put into their wedding was just incredible. The ceremony, underneath that beautiful big tree and the the outdoor dance floor… I mean, it was a dream to be there and to be able to photograph it for this amazing, sweet and big hearted couple. We really loved how much of themselves they put into their wedding through the way they planned out their day to the thoughtful details all the way down to the music they chose for their guests to dance to.  We adored the fact that their wedding was authentic and true to them. Her bridesmaids rocked those beautiful black dresses and that incredible Watters dress Angela wore! It was just a really great wedding and a really great time to be a wedding photographer 🙂

Insanely excited to share this session! We went out to the Outer Banks for their engagement session and despite the multiple speeding tickets that Brett got on the way there, it was amazing! There was hardly anyone around for miles it seemed and although it was cold, it just had this warm yet exciting feeling about roaming around such an amazing place. The sand dunes made us feel like we were literally in the middle of a desert. Can’t wait to share some images from Tara + Dustin’s wedding, which we just shot last month, but until then, hope you dig their Outer Banks engagement shoot!
