Jessica and Bert decided to elope at the courthouse with their family! They loved it way more than planning a big wedding! Even though there are no photos allowed in the courthouse, we walked through uptown taking photos of them in the June summer heat! Can you tell? We stopped in The Cotton Room to find out, that is where one of their first dates was! After cooling off, they met with their friends and family at The Broken Spoke for the BEST cheese plates, drinks, and a surprise appearance by one of their favorite musicians from Greenville, South Carolina! Jessica & Bert were so great and easy to photograph the entire day! Plus, I am going back for more cheese at The Broken Spoke soon!

Laura & Chris (Plus Cooper) rocked their engagement session! I met all three of them at OMB last October. Yes, y'all can meet me for a drink! We immediately hit it off with drink beer and wine. They are even having Sam officiate their wedding! I was so excited to see their beautiful venue and to walk through their plans. OCTOBER CAN'T come soon enough! We also took a trip to the Charlotte skyline and the Rail Trail. I cannot express how much I love these two! <3

I finally get to publish this blog!! This styled shoot was published on JuneBugWeddings.com last week. It was like an early birthday present to me! I am 25 today and yes, I am posting this blog because I am THAT excited! Abby from 13 Cedar helped me and Narcisse from Greenway Design put our idea to life. I couldn't have done this without ANY of our vendors!! (Check them out below!)

Drea and Bryce have such a beautiful love story even though this wasn't their wedding day, they eloped before they had their two adorable boys! I think their love story is amazing and now they have these photos of them to show their kids later in life!

Okay, I might be a little late on this post... But I feel like I need to post this for me! I have grown SO MUCH this year it's insane. I have to thank these photographers below for helping me grow! <3 

Tessa (Folk and Wayfarer) & Vera Gayazov

OH MY GOSH THE TWO OF YOU!! I probably would still be shooting bright and airy without y'all. Haha! You two have helped me create my portfolio with your amazing couples and pushing me to get the creative, and atypical shots. This was a big learning curve for me and thank you for being so down to earth with me! <3
