Wesley + Ashley, Vineland Depot: Whiteville, NC

...2017 was an amazing season. 
I was definitely blessed beyond my expectations with some gorgeous bride and grooms. Needless to say that this day was close to my heart. I have had the privilege of knowing Wesley since he was old enough to jump the ditch and come ride four wheelers with my brother. His mother was an amazing lady, who taught me a lot about my career. 
I was honored to spend this chapter with Wesley and Ashley, from the Save The Dates to their Wedding Day. Save the Dates were done at her parents  home at Lake Waccamaw, NC, and Engagements at the Grice Farm in Bolton, NC. Bridals took place at the gorgeous Gravestone Inn in Downtown Wilmington, NC. 
Wesley is an Agent with State Farm and Firefighter with Whiteville City Fire Department, and Ashley is an incredibly talented Visual Merchandising Manager at Dillards. 
They are perfect together, and it makes my heart smile to see them together.
 It was a perfect day and the details were gorgeous. Ashley and her mother, Rhonda, have an incredible taste and talent for creativity with decor. I wish you both so much happiness.

{...And i'd chose you..}

This year is already half thru, so crazy. It's summer time, which means the water is calling and wedding season is in full effect. I have been working a hard hustle lately to offer the most I can do for all my amazing clients and families. I can't tell you how excited I am for all the amazing weddings, and bridal gowns, and families on my books for this year. It's an honor. But I'm also loving the families, lifestyles, and the celebrations. So much in this life to love and hold on to. One of my goals this year was to add some new locations to my shoot list, and so far I have had so much fun with that.

Tasha and Jonathon
I have had the pleasure of working with Tasha in the therapy world. I had never met Jonathon until the day of our session. It absolutely made my heart smile to see the other half to her amazing presence. I can't imagine a better fit seeing these two together.

Hannah and Chase
I think of Johnny and June with these two. They completely made their session what it was behind the camera, I simply captured them. We had the honor of being about to shoot at the historical Oakland planatation, and it was exactly what I envisioned for them.

Thus far in the wedding season I have seen first hand, some amazing vendors and services:
Coastal Knot
Play That One DJ
Lora Hall Benton
The Barn at Rock Creek
Something Borrowed Boutique Rentals
Sarah Gore Catering 

Current 2017 availability is very limited at this time:

July - few slots still open
August- 3 sessions
September- CLOSED
October-6 sessions
November- OPEN 
December- Limited 

I do require a non-refundable retainer fee with all sessions and events to secure your date. I'm considering one mini session event this year, and I'm thinking summer mini sessions, or my traditional christmas session. This is TBD, it will be a 2 day only event if enough interest is expressed, Ill be posting summer mini sessions soon, with a FOURTH OF JULY lake theme.

I am officially opening booking for 2018 wedding and lifestyles. You guys are amazing and make the trials and headaches of owning a small business like this so worth the hustle and journey (trust me, I have encountered so many).
