Rachel + Richy | Sunrise Nags Head Session

When couples are heading for a getaway here on vacation and want to have a session done – naturally, I’m honored and if you know me in person, you know I’m giddy to shoot two people in love for a year, five years, forty years. I just LOVE couples. I love families, too because they…

Kirsten + Chris | Kill Devil Hills Engagements

When someone is driving from out of town and not already on vacation for a full week, I am praying over and over the weather works out. Instead, I’m looking at this devastating forecast for a 2018 bride and groom and I can NOT even accept that it’s real until my husband Mike says, “no…

Nicole + David | Bodie Lighthouse Engagements

On a warm and windy day in Nags Head on the way South driving toward Hatteras, I made a right turn and happily popped my little photographer self in the parking lot of this lighthouse. One of my favorites (they actually are all my favorites, honestly, lol) and I just stared. I sent my little…

Ari + Mary Claire | Nags Head Engagements

Catherine + Ryan | Yorktown Beach Engagements

Well this golden light is PROOF it’s not a terrible thing when you initially get rained out! Rain and rescheduling sessions, it can be stressful. As photographers we feel pretty darn bad about it and it drives us crazy to have to put you guys through it! But, it will happen! One of my couples…

When I got Stephanie’s email not TOO long ago about her wedding, my heart literally almost burst because she remembered me from ODU and I felt SO honored!!!!
