Hi everyone,

Last month, I had the immense pleasure of taking care of Jessica and Bo’s wedding photography at the gorgeous Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill, NC. I say immense pleasure as it truly was a fantastic day where I got to work with a lovely couple, surrounded by their closest friends and family, under gorgeous blue Carolina skies and alongside some of the very best vendors in the business.

Kailey at A Southern Soirée did an amazing job keeping everything running smoothly from start to finish and always with a smile on her face. Likewise, The Carolina Inn’s own Melissa was fantastic in her attention to detail and eagerness to please. Thank you ladies!

Phil at Twenty-One Films, thanks for being so great to work alongside for the whole day. I’m looking forward to seeing the first cut of the video! And to everyone else involved, my sincere gratitude for making it such a great day.

Finally, to Jessica and Bo – thanks so much for choosing me to document your day for you! You were extremely fun, gracious and kind all the way through the process. I love my job because of people like you! Best of luck to both of you for a long and happy future together!

Here are a few of my fave wedding photos of the day!

This week's image of the bride getting her make-up done offers a nice contrast to my last post and comes from a wedding I photographed last weekend at The Carolina Inn just down the road in Chapel Hill. If you've read my blog before, you may well be aware that I really don't like to direct the wedding day at all, but just let it happen and focus on documenting it honestly. With this image, however, I did provide a little bit of direction in order to get the most from the environment we were in. What was the direction? I closed the other blinds in the room and moved the chair 90 degrees and to the side so the bride was lit with some beautif ...

You can instantly tell when you meet people whether or not their chemistry is going to make for great photo opportunities and this was definitely the case on this occasion. You could see right from the outset just how much they are into each other by how naturally they interacted. These are a few of my faves from their day.
