Katie and John’s wedding was classic Southern gentility. We even had a surprise visit from a Civil War reenactor! Their wedding was on a beautiful spring day in the historic downtown of New Bern, North Carolina, and their ceremony was in one of THE most perfect antebellum chapels I have seen in a long time. The details from Katie’s mother’s veil to her father’s getaway convertible added personal touches to a really fun day. ”Heavenly Day” by Patti Griffin was a perfect song for their first dance. It truely was a heavenly day.
Katie and John, Lindsey and I had such a great time with you guys and cannot wait to shoot your additional wedding festivities in July!
Brent and I kicked off this year’s wedding season with this lovely duo, Sarah and Ryan. We started at Kenan Chapel where they were excitedly waiting to say their “I do’s.” Despite the chill in the air, everyone had a smile on their face and love in their hearts for Sarah and Ryan.
The reception was a quite the party as The Jangling Rhineharts played their favorite tunes. One of the best parts about this wedding was the family-like atmosphere. It honestly felt like one big family party filled with laughs, hugs and lots of love. Cheers to Sarah and Ryan and their special day!
Sarah and Ryan, looking back on your wedding, it’s plain to see how special your relationship is with one another. We hope these images whisk you back to that meaningful day and put a smile on your face!
Of course we would like to say a HUGE thank you to those who helped make this day perfect!

The moment cute-as-can-be Chelsea walked in to my favorite coffee shop, Port City Java, to meet me before her photo session I knew it was going to be a perfect day!
We shot her senior portraits on Front Street, right in the midst of the hype of St. Patrick’s Day weekend and festivities! Front Street is so full of life during holiday weekends, so we escaped to this peaceful side street to get started. Lucky us, we found some amazing corners and beautiful blooms hiding there for us to get lost in…
Chelsea, I can’t tell you how much I loved photographing such a special time of your life, and the chance to capture your beauty. You are beautiful inside and out, and I wish the very best for you in all that’s to come!
Brent and I recently met up with Cameron and Dave, a couple from the Raleigh area. They are getting married this summer. This duo met through a blind date, or at least that is what Cameron assumed. Shortly before Dave was scheduled to pick Cameron up for their evening out, there was a flower delivery for Cameron. The funny thing was, the flower delivery man was actually Dave in disguise (fake tattoos and all)! It wasn’t until he mentioned it at dinner later that evening that she realized what he had orchestrated. It was sneaky and sweet and the two had an amazing night of dinner, dancing and great conversation.
Brent and I had a great time with Cameron and Dave and despite the winds and very cold chill, all of us enjoyed laughs and getting to know one another. We can’t wait until their wedding!
Cameron and Dave, thanks for a wonderful afternoon! Watching you two reminded us that it’s important to be silly and have fun in everything you do. Thanks for the smiles and laughs throughout the session!
One of our favorite things we learned about Sally & Jordan during their engagement session was the story of how they got engaged. Jordan works for the Wrightsville Beach Police Department and on the night he proposed, he had a little help from one of his co-workers who stopped Sally because of a “missing” license plate. Panicked, Sally called Jordan to come to her rescue which he did, with a beautiful ring in hand. Of course, the entire event was planned by Jordan but he knew he wanted to catch Sally off guard-and he did! We are looking forward to Sally and Jordan’s big day!
Thanks to Sally and Jordan for a great afternoon! You were both troopers to brave the chilly winds and your engagement story is so fun and unique. Brent and I are glad that we will be a part of your wedding!
