This wedding was absolutely perfect. So much love and time was put into all the details and the day turned out to be absolutely gorgeous. Heather and Brandon had met me back in December for a session at the Raleigh Arboretum. From that moment I knew they were my kind of couple! They were a fun, relaxed couple that made the cutest faces with each other. There was also so much time input into the session. Heather and I had been communicating online and she shared so many ideas with me on the exact things she wanted. That makes it so easy as a photographer to make sure that we are a good match, and can I make it happen. Needless to say that passed over into the wedding and everything was perfectly thought out and so lovely. I hope you enjoy the images from the wedding and I am thankful you had me as your photographer for this important time in your life

Weddings are such a special time for families. The love of two people bringing together families who may have never met otherwise. I adore them, and especially the couples I get to work with. I am such a low key photographer and when I work with couples getting married I tend to be drawn to couples that are as well.

I love genuine, good people and Kaitlin and Mitchell are just that. This young man was such a trooper and did everything we asked of him at his e-session. Kaitlin was just radiant during her bridals and never made anything feel rushed or over the top. They are just simply 2 amazing people starting an great little family together. 

They picked New Bern as their wedding location. Not only is it beautiful there but the waterfront holds a special place in their heart. The weather prevented an outside ceremony, but I think we were blessed with some incredible outside pics after the storm passed over.

I want to wish this couple an eternity of happiness together and thank you for choosing me to photograph one of the most special days in your life.
