Because we are so people focused in our approach to wedding photography, we are not always every bridal blogs first choice for features. We do, however, LOVE to be featured on Offbeat Bride. I love this site. So many of our clients fit what this blog is going for so it’s always a treat to see our couples submit their weddings and get featured! Meghan and Kristian’s wedding was so freakin’ awesome that there is no way Offbeat could say no to featuring them You should totally head over to Offbeat Bride’s blog to read all about it… but I thought I would also share a few screen shots of the feature here as well…
Coming soon to the blog… Holiday Short Stories
We held our first annual Holiday Short Stories in the past couple of weeks and have had the best time celebrating the holidays with 17 different families. How much fun did we have?! A TON.
This was our first year offering Holiday Short Stories (smaller, mini sessions intended for holiday cards, gifts, and just a general quick little shoot) and we had a blast with the 16 families that joined us! I had always thought about hosting a mini shoot of some sort but did not decide to do it until a past client suggested we do it this year. While I can’t share images from all the shoots, I did want to share a sample of all the fun that happened that day. It turned out that some families were so inspired by the fall gloriousness that they went both fall and holiday with their sessions. We got to see couples whose weddings we shot through out the years we’ve been in business. We met their babies – both human and furry- for the first time. There were candy bribes for the kids, treat vibes for the puppies (and jokes from the grownups of adult beverages and treats for the parents who got their kids through their 15 minutes!). There was much laughter, a few tears and just one baby throwing up. We learned secrets yet to be announced and were given sweet gifts for Thabiso from our client-friends who haven’t even met Thabiso yet. It was like two days of a homecoming for us seeing so many faces from so many parts of our professional and personal lives. We are so grateful you keep returning back to us to tell your story… And thanks for making this first year super successful!
On a very chilly Saturday in November Alex and Kristen tied the knot in Wilmington at 128 South. What a lovely day. What a lovely location. And my GOODNESS what a lovely couple! I actually went to middle school and high school with Kristen and through the magic of Facebook we were reconnected and we were given the honor of photographing their wedding. Alex and Kristen are actually both from Cary but did not meet until they were both in school in Wilmington. Kristen had a crush on Alex and would try to see him by going to the same section of math class that he did when hers was later in the afternoon – she would get up early for that! It’s obvious in these images but Kristen was just BURSTING with the joy of her wedding day. I love getting to see this. All day long she kept talking about how it was the best day ever, the best day of her life, the most fun and exceeding her expectations. It’s so awesome to get to watch and document someone experiencing their best day ever! Hello, my job is awesome.
