This Private Residential Bridal Session in New Bern is a special one. It is special because of the meaning behind why. Maddie confided in us that her father’s doctor didn’t believe that he would be present for her and John’s wedding. While that sentence ends with a period, their story doesn’t end there! Praise the […]

The past two years, our brides and grooms have been in possession of some amazing home estates. When Sarah and John asked us to take a look at John’s parent estate to take photographs at, we couldn’t resist! Needless to say, Sara and I’s reaction to seeing the home was one of “can we photograph […]

This gorgeous bridal session at the Glass Box at the Stockroom 230 is just to die for! How do Sara and I even begin to explain how much we adore Becca and how ABSOLUTELY stunning she is! Not just physically stunning, but her heart and soul is just overwhelmingly beautiful. She is a GORGEOUS bride […]

Michelle and I loved the ability to come back and photograph at the The Gardens At Gray Gables! The last time we photographed was in 2015 (what?!) and we knew it would be a perfect venue for Erin & Connor’s wedding. Before we can skip ahead to the wedding, we can’t forget to share some […]

A Springtime Duke Gardens Bridal | Durham Wedding Photographer Photographing a Duke Gardens Bridal at the beginning of North Carolina springtime is the most gorgeous thing ever!
