Jasmine + Ivan: Rural Sibling Photos in Williamston

Posted by on Jun 22, 2015 in Child, Family | No Comments

When Jasmine contacted me to schedule a mini session with herself and her brother as a surprise gift to give to her dad on Father’s Day, I figured that I would be meeting a pair of adult siblings. I was surprised and delighted to find Jasmine and her four-year-old little brother, Ivan, waiting for me before our session. These two have the sweetest relationship, which completely shows in these photos, and I don’t know if I’ve ever come across a young woman with so much maturity and thoughtfulness for her family.

And that location! That light! I could basically shoot there location every day.

Elise + Chase: Hawk Hallow Wedding

Posted by on Jun 19, 2015 in Wedding | No Comments

Elise and Chase started their wedding planning from South Carolina, but they completely won me over when they came over to my house to chat about the final wedding details in the weeks before their wedding. When I got to the chapel on their wedding day, I felt like I was arriving to see old friends get married.

These two had the sweetest first look and private vow exchange before the ceremony. Private vows have always held a special place in my heart—Jeff and I exchanged private vows during our own first look before we were married—and it was one of the most memorable moments of the day (and as Elise told me later, this was one of her favorite moments too).

And major thanks to Rachael, who was my second photographer that day and did an incredible job of capturing behind the scenes photos before the ceremony, along with different angles and details during portraits and the reception. Holy cow, Rachael, you’re amazing.

When my friend, Candice, had her new baby boy, we put together a mini session to celebrate those tiny baby features.
