Simon & Abbey | University of Virginia Chapel Wedding

As soon as we walked into the door of the Airbnb that Abbey and her bridesmaids were getting ready in, we knew that this was going to be a day full of happy tears, love, and fun. The mood was light, and Abbey was so relaxed. She actually went straight into trying to make us feel at home, and making sure we had everything we needed.

Simon & Abbey’s deep faith and devotion to one another was on display all day long from the prep time, the first looks, the UVA Chapel, and the King Family Vineyards reception. I think Courtney and I cried about as much as the couple and their friends and family…seriously.

We could tell just how special this couple really is to so many people by the way their friends and family adored them. There were heartfelt prayers prayed over the couple and tear-jerking words spoken about them by their family. It was a total honor to be a part of such a special, intimate day. In the process, we’ve made lifelong friends…and that’s what it’s all about.

Enjoy Abbey and Simon’s emotional, love-filled Virginia wedding!

Bryan & Jessie | Asheville Masonic Temple Wedding

If you were to take a film set from The Great Gatsby and drop it down in the middle of Downtown Asheville NC, then you would basically have Bryan and Jessie’s wedding day at The Asheville Masonic Temple. Built in the early 1900’s, The Asheville Masonic Temple is a four story brick building loaded with masonic memorabilia, scissor gate elevators, a beautiful theater, stone columned balconies, and an amazing grand staircase. Ok, sorry, I’m a history nerd.

The day was a little different for me than normal, as we were inside the masonic temple all day long, however, I was totally fine with that. The details and vibe of the venue are incredible. The bride & groom are avid wine-lovers, and wine related details were sprinkled throughout the day. The couple’s closest friends and family filled the theater for the exchanging of their hand-written vows, followed by a beautiful cocktail hour and meal in the main reception hall. The guests and party ascended the stairs after dinner to dance the night away in the third floor theater. It was a night to remember.

Please enjoy Bryan & Jessie’s elegant Downtown Asheville Wedding!

Josh & Kacie | Noda Session

When Kacie approached me about taking some photos for she and her boyfriend Josh, we initially planned to do a "nature/outdoors" shoot. However, something in me said, "It's time to change it up and do something different."

Let me just say...I LOVE coffee. Living in Ethiopia for a year will do it to you. It's such an integral part of the Ethiopian culture, and I'm pretty sure I now have a coffee "problem" as a result. The idea of a coffee shop kept coming back to me, so I asked Kacie what she thought about a coffee shop shoot, and she was all about it! How perfect is it that she and Josh actually met in a coffee shop?!

I knew I wanted a super cozy, eclectic, and warm space for the shoot, so I approached Trade & Lore Coffee in Noda about utilizing their space for the shoot. They were SUPER gracious and kind, agreeing to let me use their cafe. A huge plus...the lattes were delicious and really pretty, so go check them out in Charlotte (Noda) or Downtown Asheville, NC!

Kacie and Josh met us at the cafe and it was immediately apparent that these two were super sweet and absolutely in love. It always takes a minute for couples to warm up to the camera or actually forget that you're there, but once they did...it was magic. 

Lattes, laughter, cozy couches, and young love...what more could you ask for? It's all here. 

Please enjoy Josh and Kacie's coffee shop session.
