Tiffany + Chris


Tiffany and Chris planned their New Years Eve wedding at beautiful Fearrington Village in Pittsboro, NC.  When I asked Tiffany about the chosen date, she told me that they wanted to throw a huge New Years Eve party for family and friends.  A party certainly happened with family and friends laughing and dancing for hours waiting for the new year to roll in.    There were practically unlimited areas for photography, the staff was excellent to work with and the food was amazing!  It was a wonderful way to spend New Years Eve.    Happy New Year to the happy couple!

Amandas Bridal Session

Amandas Bridal session was arranged at Leak Wall House in Rockingham, NC.  Planning began early for Amanda and things fell into place as was meant to be.    One interesting comment to me was that she knew what type of dress she wanted and located it at first attempt.  I was also impressed that Amanda did her own makeup.  It was perfect and I enjoyed shooting tons of bridal photos for her.   Below are just a few.

Martha + Jay

I was excited to learn that Martha and Jay were planning a masquerade reception.  I was also excited that the party was going to be in one of the historical homes in Rockingham.  Tons of preparation took place in order for this to happen and the entire evening seemed to come together as planned.   The ceremony was beautiful and the guests participated in the masquerade reception as requested.   It was fun to watch through the cameras.

Mandi + Chris


Since Mandi and Chris live in Florida, planning for Mandi and Chris wedding was assisted by Chris’s mom and email.  Technology is nice to have under these circumstances.   A quick Sunday drive to Raleigh to Caffe Luna on a warm October evening was a good start for us.   Upon arrival to Caffe Luna, we scoped out the area for a quick Bridal session prior to the grooms arrival.  The time frame was just a few hours to setup, have the ceremony and enjoy the reception.   The quick pace of setting up inside the building was interesting to watch.  As usual, things came together as planned to allow for a beautiful ceremony.  “Their Story” was interesting as the officiator shared the details of how the couple met.  The reception offered good music and wonderful food for all (Thank you!). Best wishes to the happy couple.

Amy + Tommy


Amy and Tommy had a beautiful wedding on a very nice October evening at the Thomas Walton Manor in Laurinburg NC.  The decorations and ceremony were very memorable.   One of my favorite moments was Amy’s personal and sometimes humorous vows.  The families had a great reception catered by Rick’s Catering of Laurinburg.    I was ahppy to be there to capture special moments for the newlyweds.  Congratulations!
