Dakota & Taylor | Hometown Happiness

Dakota and Taylor wanted to get married surrounded by family and friends in their home state of Illinois. For me, it was such an incredible experience to travel to Chicago and Elgin to watch these two lovebirds tie the knot. The couple had barbecue, an ice cream bar, and good ol’ fashioned sweet tea. It was a little bit of East Coast charm by the Great Lakes - and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it.

Erin & Will | Waterfall Elopement

Erin hiked in her dress, boots, and veil to a the falls in Dupont State Forest. These two said their vows to each other and declared their lifelong love in front of no one but nature and my camera. Elopements are always one-of-a-kind; and they give me an opportunity to capture intimate details that are sometimes lost in the hustle and bustle of busy wedding days. Both types of weddings are incredible to be a part of - and both are perfect to express the love between a husband and wife.

Madeline & Mitchell Plyler | Seabreeze Ceremony

Maddie and Mitchell are one of those love stories as perfect and as lasting as time itself. They tied the knot in Southport, NC and then danced as the sun set on the water. I enjoyed getting to know their sweet families. They made me feel welcome and right at home in their Southport town, and I had an absolutely amazing time making so many new friends.

Brindley & Donavan Bennett | Down home

These two tied the knot in Clinton, SC in the bride’s home church. Her dad officiated, the entire church attended, and everyone she loved pitched in. It was a beautiful day in a small South Carolina town.


Alejandra & Ryan RExon | autumn love

This intimate backyard wedding was on a lovely fall afternoon. It was such a joy getting to know these two and their families. The bride's children watched her walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life. There is no sweeter moment than one like this.


Elizabeth & Norman | West coast sunset

My gorgeous Aunt Elizabeth married the love of her life - Norman - on Whidbey Island, WA and allowed me to capture some moments alongside her hired photographer, Michael Stadler.

Emma & Danny | Winter Hideaway

On a cozy January afternoon, I spent time with Emma & Danny and their families. They originally planned on a completely private elopement, but decided last minute to include their families and closest friends. This small ceremony took place in a log cabin in Western, NC and I loved every minute of it.
