When Wes texted me asking if I was available to photograph his proposal to Claire, I didn’t think it was actually going to happen. I legitimately asked him if I was being punked! I didn’t believe it until I saw the ring. I met Wes and Claire when they joined the small group that Mike […]

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 […]

We absolutely love with Shannon & Alex come to visit because there’s always a chance that we can capture more photos of them! As some of you may know, Shannon and I met when we were both interning at Young Life’s Rockbridge Alum Springs in the summer of 2012. One of the best things about […]

A few months ago I met with Sarah and her mom at a Panera in North Raleigh to discuss potentially capturing Sarah’s upcoming wedding to Eric. Whenever I do one of these meetings, one of the first things I ask is the story of how he proposed. I was in for quite the surprise when […]
