Congratulations to Katie and Kyle.


As with normal engaged couples Kyle and Katie had been planning her wedding for several months.  I spent time with Katie on a few occasions to discuss plans for the big day and it was obvious that she was very excited  about having an outdoor wedding in her hometown of Pinehurst.  One evening I received and email from Katie that they had to change the wedding date due to a request from the venue wanting to plan a Vince Gill Benefit concert.  Fortunately, Katie had not sent out invitations and they agreed to change their wedding to the following evening.  I was impressed that they agreed to wait one more day to allow the concert to be scheduled.  In exchange for changing the date, Katie and Kyle were treated to V.I.P. seating and Vince Gill acknowledged the couple during the concert.  What a great evening prior to your big day!   The threat of rain the following day didn’t slow anyone down and clouds moved past allowing for a wonderful ceremony and reception.  I had a great time working with Katie and Kyle as well as their families during the day.  Best wishes to the newlyweds!

Cottle Family


I was happy to receive a call from the Cottle family requesting my services to photograph their family.   I find it interesting to watch newborn twins interact with each other.  Little Emma also got a chance to do her own thing whole being photographed.  As with most children, she had a lot of energy and lead me around the playground without any time to stop and catch my breath.  Best wished to the young Cottle family.

Cooke Kids


I had the pleasure to spend some time photographing the Cooke kids during a beautiful spring morning in Southern Pines.  We met at Weymouth Gardens and despite the fact that it was a bit damp out from rain the day before we managed to use the facility to get some nice photos for them to share.  Young Ian warmed up to the camera quickly and provided some great poses.  It was nice working with the Cooke family.
