One of the many things I enjoy about being a wedding photographer is traveling around the state and seeing new places. After 5 years of living in North Carolina, this was my first trip to New Bern and what a beautiful part of the world it is! Having grown up on the coast in the UK, I always love being near the water and we couldn’t get much closer for Jessica and Brinson’s beautiful backyard wedding on the grassy banks of the Neuse River. Under trees draped with Spanish Moss and with downtown New Bern in the distance, locations to tie the knot don’t get much more photogenic than this one.

The vibe all day was relaxed and laid back. I met Jessica after her hair and make-up were done and she was in her dress and we headed over to take some pictures with her horse Cody. From there, we drove to the wedding venue where finishing touches were being made to the garden. After the ceremony, the bride and groom cracked open a beer and we took family pictures. We got them done just in time as a storm rolled in and the heavens opened just as we were getting in our cars to go to the reception. They say every cloud has a silver lining and, in this case, we were treated to a beautiful rainbow, which we took advantage of to get some bridal portraits while we waited for the groom to arrive. When Brinson arrived, Golden Hour was living up to its name so we took a free minutes to get some photos of the happy couple while cocktail hour was going on. After a scrumptious BBQ buffet, the evening played out under the stars to the tunes of 3 Day Weekend and square dancing.

Big thanks to Jessica and Brinson and their friends and family for opening their doors and their hearts to me on their wedding day. I had an unforgettable time and I love the memories we created and captured.

Here are just some of my favourites from the day:

grandfather mountain elopement – teresa & jed
A few weeks back, I got up early and headed up the Blue Ridge Parkway to shoot Teresa & Jed's dawn wedding on the summit of Grandfather Mountain. When we got there, a very thick mist enveloped everything and I was worried we weren't going to be able to take in any of the amazing views you get on a clear day. As it was, God seemed to be smiling down on us as the clouds parted and we were wrapped in the most gorgeous light you can wish for. After the short ceremony, we took a few portraits and Teresa & Jed were treated to their own personal little rainbow. It was a fitting symbol for such a fun-loving and happy couple to start their new ...

winston-salem nc wedding photography – toni & kevin
Toni & Kevin's ceremony and reception have to be amongst the most beautiful weddings I have ever had the pleasure to photograph. The venues, the décor, the lighting, the details, and, of course, the people were all amazing. Everywhere your gaze wandered, there was something beautiful to look at and enjoy. It really was a gorgeous day to be a photographer! I have to give a shout out to Elana and her team at Elana Walker Events for putting together such a great line-up of vendors to deliver such a spectacular event and for looking after Traci and me so well. Everyone involved gets a virtual high-five and free hugs for the rest of this ye ...

winmock nc wedding photographer – hallie & cullen
When I'm looking back on the photos and smiling while I'm editing, I know how lucky I am to do what I do for a living. Hallie & Cullen's wedding was such an occasion: a fabulous autumn day at the Winmock at Kinderton with truly special people. I could spend hours gushing about this couple, who are so obviously head over heels in love with each other, the amazing venue, the beautiful weather, the fabulous reception, but I'd rather let the photos speak for themselves. Here are my picks of the pics from their day: Thank you so much, Hallie and Cullen; I ...
