Hannah + Tommy | Hermitage Hill Farm & Stables Wedding

GUYS….what? What happened? What is life?! A perfect day, the best weather, a timeline that glorified all things that photographers love (PORTRAIT TIME:)) and moments we can never forget. Not even if we tried. We are so happy that you are a part of our lives and that we get to call you friends, Hannah and Tommy… you are the living embodiment of absolute and utter joy. Look at you two. You light up brighter than the sun when you’re together. There’s this natural reaction the two of you get when the other is near, it’s a cheerfulness that inspires me to want to go and flirt with Mike, ASAP! And I can tell you – he LOVES that, hahaha! 🙂

This day…it was moving. It was full of support from family and friends who all feel so fortunate to be a part of your adventure. They know their lives are better because you two are in it, and that’s the truth. We laughed, we teared up, we felt the emotions right there with y’all. I am so happy to share a post today that I can promise you Hannah and Tommy would light up a strangers day, just by seeing this kind of happiness in the world. THANK YOU! We will ALWAYS be so grateful for you!!!!! 🙂

Lauren + Ryan | Bethany Beach Delaware Wedding

You will see something truly incredible in the story of this day. Let’s start with one sentence that’s enough to cover what kind of spirit they have, they got married IN the rain. Actually in it, while it came down! From this fact alone, you know we are dealing with a laid back couple who wants to live out a little adventure and go with the flow and that, in my eyes, is a dream couple to work with. Did I have to have Mike hover over me with an umbrella during the ceremony? Did we have to wipe my 70-200 every 60 seconds? YES — and it was SO WORTH EVERY SECOND!

I would shoot in the rain every single wedding of the year for couples like this. Lauren had a vision for her wedding day and I’m sure standing in the rain wasn’t a part of it but now it’s written in their story, it will always be how she remembers what her wedding day looked like and I’m willing to bet it’ll be an incredibly endearing part of a story they sit and tell those grandkids some day. This is an inspiring love…from Ryan tossing that umbrella to the ground for that first married kiss to the  perpetual laughter and joy during their first dance to a classic, we will never forget so many of these moments as long as we are doing this job.

Enjoy this heartwarming blog post!! 🙂

Kim + Charles | Anguilla Destination Wedding

We got to our hotel in Raleigh around 1:30 in the morning, and we had to be up by 3:30am. When the alarm went off after hardly two hours of sleep, I wasn’t tired… I was WAY too excited to hop out the door and head straight to the Raleigh Durham airport and pop my happy little self on that flight so we could get ourselves to ANGUILLA!!

Kim and Charles gave everyone such a gift by creating this adventurous opportunity in the form of a heartwarming and welcoming experience to celebrate their wedding day. Not only do they have the most amazing, perfect little laid back daughter that you can’t keep your eyes off of, but their family and friends are absolutely all smitten with them. This is the kind of group who would have been pure joy working with no matter where we were, but because everyone was in vacation mode in this breathtaking place – it was even more of a joyful environment.

There is no blue like this water! There is no vibe like that of island life. There is definitely no love like Charles and Kim’s and what a real honor to be brought to the remote and restful island of Anguilla to capture this epic day. You will see laughter, tearful moments and a connection that speaks volumes between them. Thank you Kim and Charles for the absolute privilege of being there for you (and Ava!) for this inspiring celebration!

Cat + Ryan | Currituck Club Outer Banks Wedding

This was it… this was the big celebration to roll in 2017 for us as our second year doing the husband and wife team thing and let me tell you one thing, it did not disappoint one-single-bit.

Ryan and Cat, I am like wondering how we can EVER show you enough thanks to let you know how wonderful you are. Being there on your wedding day was such an absolute joy and you were surrounded but this incredible energy because you have the best family, bridal parties and friends around. What a gift! For you, and for us — because it says a lot when we are treated perpetually with respect throughout the day. We may have worked hard but we didn’t feel like just a vendor, we felt like we were friends, too and I am so grateful for that.

Ryan, when Cat walked down that aisle to you — I saw you light up in a way that felt like Christmas morning and Mike and I both thought we saw something really incredible happening in that moment. It’s a TRUE privilege to see a man look at his almost wife the way Ryan looked at Catherine that day. Cat, you are home in arms…and we are so happy we saw this happen before our very eyes. You made the return to weddings flawless and for that I will always hold the best memories from this day! THANK YOU TWO… I am so glad you’re soaking up that well-deserved honeymoon! Enjoy married life!!! 🙂
