I feel truly blessed to be able to follow my dream of being a photographer. I absolutely LOVE what I do! From the time I picked up a camera, I was obsessed with taking pretty pictures. After 12 years, my focus has shifted… I have come to realize that one of the most important parts of my job is telling your story through my lens. If I’m photographing your wedding day, I focus on authentic, natural and real moments. If I’m photographing your senior pictures, your personality and inner beauty will shine through! These are the moments that you will forever cherish and remember. Welcome to the blog. I can’t wait for the opportunity to capture YOU and tell your story!
Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill Engagement and Wedding Photographer
I always thought my sister, Mary would have girls but instead, God blessed her with four amazing boys. In June, she will finally have a daughter and she is a gem! Emily is beautiful, sweet, and really funny. We absolutely love her and can’t wait for her to join the family. I wonder if she knows what she is getting into?? This summer, she won’t have one brother, she’ll have four!!
Justin is the oldest of four boys. I saw him take his first steps, say his first words, attempted to help him color when he was toddler (but then he had a huge meltdown because he didn’t want help from me.). I watched him grow up and we had long conversations on the beach about economics, books, music, and his affection/interest in Emily before they first officially started dating!
He is an incredible son (ok.. I’m crying as I’m typing this.. surprise, surprise) a wonderful big brother, and a compassionate human being. Justin has put countless hours into volunteering by spending time with the elderly. He’s super funny, super sweet, and he loves Jesus!
Emily is an ED nurse and Justin is going to med school at ECU. Their dream is to work in the mission field at some point using their knowledge of medicine and passion for helping others. I’m sooooo proud of this guy and I love Emily and I CAN’T WAIT to photograph their wedding in June at the historical Merrimon-Wynne in downtown Raleigh. Gahhhhhh.. I’m so excited!!
