Amanda & Jason’s WRAL Azalea Garden Wedding was featured on Bustld Triangle in their Weddings Like Yours section! This is our first feature on Bustld and we are incredibly excited and overjoyed that they wanted to share Amanda & Jason’s story!

I met Amanda in 2016 at Carolina Barre and Core located in Lafayette Village (there is now also a second location closer to NC State). Two years ago I took photos of her and Joel just for fun, and then again last year when they were announcing they were pregnant! I felt honored that Amanda […]

I met Jon a few years ago when I was attending Grace Community Church in Fulton, MD. We were both on the leadership team for the Young Adults community there (which by the way, was the most special group of people I ever had the privilege of doing life with). I met Tania through Jon […]

Cat is the daughter of my previous supervisor I had while working as an administrative assistant. Her daughter lived in the town where Mike and I had been living before we moved down to Raleigh!

Mike and I met Alyssa + Tristan when they joined our small group a few months ago. These two have been so fun to get to know!

See the story (and a cameo […]

When I emailed Collette to follow-up with her after her initial inquiry into wedding photography, I received quite possibly the best response I have ever had the privilege to read. I asked her to give me more details on her and Patrick’s big day, and this is how she responded: Our wedding day is going […]

On October 4th I received an email from my contact form from Collette. She started by saying she loves my style and way of capturing a story–words any photographer would love to hear! When I asked her how she had heard about me, she said: Honestly, in unfortunately typical 2017 fashion, I have no idea […]

Photographers often forget to photograph themselves. Lucky enough for me, my mother forces (asks) us kiddos to take a photo every year at Thanksgiving that she can use for her Christmas cards. This year I managed to get a couple photos of Mom & Dad mixed in there, too! The new family dog, Scooby, also […]
