December 21st, 2013.Sometimes you meet people that immediately draw you in and just move you. I had the pleasure of shooting Drake and Joanna’s wedding with the oh-so-wonderful Haley George Photography. Not only was it the warmest December day, it was filled with a whole lot of laughs and happy tears. Drake and Joanna- what you have is real and inspiring and encouraging. Thanks a million (and thanks to Haley George) for allowing me to capture such a special day.

I’ve known Mary Beth for the past three years and happened to be living with her at the exact time that her and Heath started dating. I remember she came back to school after a weekend with him and she couldn’t hide her giddy smile. I love the fact that I had the blessing of watching her walk through a relationship where her love for Heath grew deeper and deeper every day. I’m still in awe of this day and so thankful that I got to capture it.
Mary Beth and Heath- I love you both so much and wish you both the absolute best. Your day was beautiful, flawless, and filled with the love of the Lord.
August 11th, 2013. Being able to capture Sydney and Drew’s wedding day was an absolute blessing. I could tell immediately that their love was genuine and beautiful from the inside out. They were both so gracious and down to earth that I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to work with! Sydney and Drew- your love is real and it’s deep. I wish you both the best with your adventure with YWAM Ministries in France and cannot wait to see what the Lord has planned for the two of you. Your wedding day was filled with the joy of the Lord and I had a blast capturing it.
"I've been a waitin' for you. And you've been a waitin' for me. Tell me that you'll always be true. And you'll be the only one for me." - The Civil Wars I was more than thrilled to shoot this wedding with my sweet friend Haley George and take a road trip to Pawley's Island, South Carolina for the weekend. Needless to say, it was a beautiful wedding and I am so happy I had the chance to be a part of it. These are a few of my favorite shots! Enjoy :)
I met Christina through a friend a couple months ago and I am SO glad that we were introduced. It was so refreshing getting coffee with her for the first time talking about our passions and desires in life. She wanted to get to know me...the real me... and that is something that I really admired about her (Not to mention that she was the most low maintenance bride and the easiest person to get along with). With all that being said, I felt so honored to be a part of her special day. It was filled with laughter, tears, old friends, new friends, and lots of dancing!
This wedding was an absolute blast because I had the sweet privilege of shooting with my dear friend Haley George. I'm so lucky to have met Olivia and Andrew on their big day and capture their first moments as husband and wife. They are the type of people who instantly made me feel welcomed and loved. Their giddy smiles and laughter made everyone feel right at home. After only spending a day with them I know that they are going to do big things together as husband and wife. I truly hope that these pictures bring you the same joy that I felt on their special day!

This post is very dear to me because I have watched this couple fall in love from the beginning. Mary Beth is a sweet friend of mine who I had the pleasure of living with my last two years of college. She has always been one of my biggest encouragers and supporters when it came to my passion for photography. I’m extremely thankful for her and the role she played in my life throughout college and I can’t wait to see what the Lord has prepared for her and Heath! I was there when she first started dating Heath, when he first came for a visit to Boone, when she told me that she was falling in love with him and I got to hear first hand how he proposed. I have always been a fan of Heath, especially when he came to pick her up from my house and brought me Krispy Kreme ;) This shoot was an absolute blast because they could not stop laughing! So much joy in these pictures! I just love the way they look at one another and laugh at themselves. I also adored the fact that they brought Krispy Kreme donuts because that is one of their favorite places to eat. All I'm saying is that October better get here fast because I cannot WAIT to shoot y’alls wedding!!

This shoot was the absolute best. Marcie is not only a natural in front of the camera, she is also a joy to be around (I could not stop laughing and squealing the entire time). After only being with her for a couple of hours, I could already tell that she is going to do great things with her life as she heads off to school in the fall. She is beautiful and always smiling. These next few pictures are some of my favorites (I wish I could post more) Enjoy!!

Meet Cameron.I can't even begin to describe to you just how much this girl means to me. Our friendship over the past 2 years has made my time at ASU so much more rewarding. She has encouraged me, laughed with me, cried with me (mostly me doing the crying), and has always pointed me to Jesus. Her heart for the Lord and the people around her is something that I admire about her the most. She is going to do big things with her life and for the Kingdom. I know that our friendship will last a lifetime and I can't wait for the many more years to come! I had the wonderful privilege of taking these BEAUTIFUL pictures of her on her 21st birthday. Let's just say I was freaking out the entire time.
Love you Cam.

"For you, I sing I dance.
Rejoice in this divine romance.
Lift my heart and my hands
to show my love."
This spontaneous photo shoot in the snow was the BEST decision Emily and I could've made. Emily is my very best friend and is getting married to the love of her life on May 25th, 2013. I have lived with Emily for the past four years of college and have watched her love Colby so well. I have always admired their love for the Lord and watching them glorify Christ together as a couple. Whenever I am with the both of them, I feel so happy. They bring me so much joy and I can't wait to watch them become husband and wife in just a couple of months!

I had the lovely chance of meeting Meradyth this past Christmas break when she was visiting my little sister Haley. They both had the privilege of meeting out in Colorado last summer doing work crew at a Younglife camp called Crooked Creek. Let's just say that they were meant to be the best of friends. It was such a blessing watching her love my sister so well and I know that they will be friends for a long time. I LOVE the pictures that I captured of her. Can you say gorgeous??! She is a beautiful girl who has the most fun loving heart and I absolutely adore her.
