Moses Cone Park is such a remarkable location for portraits – so much variety in one place. It’s obvious why this is a favorite among photographers and clients alike. Here are some of my favorites from the Quinn family portrait session:

Meredith and Kirby had a beautiful wedding on October 14th at the Blue Ridge Mountain Club in Blowing Rock. The Blue Ridge Mountain Club is a stunning location for a wedding! And I can’t say enough wonderful things about Buddy Fore of Grouse Moor Catering – he was on top of things! Plus, just look […]

A Surprise Proposal!

Surprise proposals are fun. My favorite moment is seeing HER reaction – because every one is completely different in some way. My biggest concern with THIS particular proposal was the thick fog that had rolled in. Visibility was very poor, as you can see. But it worked out in the end and they were just […]

Fall is truly my favorite time of year. I know it sounds cliche, but honestly, it’s the best time for portraits because of the beautiful colors! And these October family portraits at Rough Ridge are the perfect example.

I have been so busy this Fall that I have really neglected this blog. My September, October, and November have been incredibly busy – so my focus has been on getting those images finished and delivered rather than writing blog posts.

When I asked Leah, “What is the most anticipated moment of your wedding day?” her response was: “It’s all going to be fabulous.” And it was. Describing this day takes only one word: happiness. The photos speak […]

Jennifer & Christopher had a beautiful intimate wedding at Banner Elk Winery just a few weeks ago. I can’t even begin to tell you just how lovely the details, decor, and flowers were (I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves). And the weather was absolute perfection! They chose to do a “first look” before the […]

I just love when extended families get together and make a vacation of it in the High Country. This family contacted me to create portraits for them during their family get-together on Beech Mountain. The house they rented provided an AMAZING location for portraits!

Oftentimes when people come here for a vacation, it is more of a multi-family get-together (or family reunion). Since families don’t get together like this regularly, it’s always great to get family portraits while everyone is together! Kaye and her family decided to do just that during their visit to Banner Elk in June. There […]

Five Reasons Why Every Bride Needs a Wedding Planner

First, let me just start this by openly stating no wedding planner paid me to make this blog post. I have photographed weddings with and without wedding planners/coordinators and truly, things do go much more smoothly with a competent wedding planner. (PS: I can make recommendations!) Your wedding day is naturally one of the best […]
