Fall Update

I sit here working on this blog post with a full and humbled heart. This Fall has been quite a beautiful whirlwind and I wanted to share little pieces of all the sessions and weddings I’ve captured over the last month. Little sneak peeks into the places I’ve adventured and stories/lives I’ve been honored to get to know on a deeper level and document. So much more soon – I hope you enjoy getting lost a bit in some highlights of what my month has been about.

Portland Maine Anniversary – Josh & Natalie

This is what three children and seven years of marriage looks like.

One of my greatest joys of being a photographer is the people I get to meet (and befriend) and the relationships and life I get to capture – freezing these moments as a visual legacy and tangible memory. We met up in Portland, Maine on the actual date of their seven year anniversary. As parents, they don’t often spend time away from their three beautiful children, so I wanted the session itself to be an experience of connection. I knew right away as we exchanged hugs that they would instantly feel like old friends, and the session definitely reflects this spirit. We talked about their very beginnings so many years ago – and dove into the biggest dreams and hopes they have for their lives and family. I left our time together feeling simply and beautifully honored; to witness and capture their connection was a heartfelt experience that centered me back to what’s truly important in my own life. My hope is that these images reflect a voice of the beautiful heart and home they’ve created and share together. So so much love to you both xo

Sherrill’s Inn Wedding – Vince & Ginny

As I made my way around the curves of the mountains before I arrived to the beautiful Sherrill’s Inn, rain started to lightly come down in the area. I smiled to myself remembering how beautiful Vince & Ginny’s engagement session in the rain and fog was, so their wedding day wanted to reflect the same feeling. It drizzled on and off throughout the day at exactly the right times, making all the greens around the venue vibrant and rich with color. Ginny & Vince knew they found THE wedding venue when they walked through the maze of hedges and “secret” gardens the property is surrounded by. The Inn has been around since 1834 nestled up in the mountains, I was swooning all day. A huge thanks to Amy for traveling to photograph the day with me! Ginny & Vince, I so loved getting to know you both throughout the months and capture a piece of your history together as a couple and now husband and wife! xo

Here are some of my favorite memories of the day (just to name a few!):
- The veil and earrings Ginny wore were passed down through the generations and Vince’s ring is passed down from his grandfather
- Vince designed/handmade the groomsmen/father ties (how cool is that!) The design incorporates the North and South Carolina state flowers
- All of the DIY decor and details (wedding invitations, florals, handwritten program screen, and the prayer flags) were artfully done by the couple
- Ginny & Vince found and restored the old church window they used as their ceremony backdrop with the eucalyptus dripping along the sides
- Both of Ginny’s parents walked her down the aisle. It was a really special moment.
- Their family and friends surrounded them in an intimate ceremony in the woods as they exchanged personalized vows
- These two can dance. Ginny’s Dad and his band played throughout the reception – even Vince got on the drum set for a couple songs and rocked it out!
