feature // collages website of the week . caroline's bridal

We are so excited that Collages.net has chosen another one of our bridal sites to feature as "Website of the Week!" They review all of the online proofing sites uploaded across the country & choose one wedding & one portrait site to feature each week on their [ website ], [ blog ] & newsletter.

You can view Caroline's complete Collages.net proofing site [ here ] to see all of the photos from the session.

We heard the news sometime last fall, so have been eagerly waiting to share the photos until the site was featured!

Caroline is a stunning bride & a super sweet girl. Needless to say, we really enjoyed photographing her bridal session at Yankee Hall Plantation in Greenville this past September. Keep an eye out for more photos from the [ wedding ] to come soon, as well!

Look at Caroline working it! I love when our brides aren't afraid to have a little fun in front of the camera & show us their sassy side. :)

Caroline is a hair & makeup artist, so naturally her hair was amazing! The hairpiece was a great added touch.

Yankee Hall Plantation has a fantastic ballroom with columns & chandeliers. Loved it!

How adorable is she?! Caroline saw this great bathtub & just had to have a shot in it. Gotta love her. :)

**Edited to add: Collages also chose to feature one of Caroline's images on their [ blog ] as Photo of the Week.

nicole + tony // engagement . durham nc

Oh my goodness. I couldn't be more in love with this couple!! Nicole & Tony invited us to shoot their engagement photos in downtown Durham recently & we had such a great time. It's always a lot of fun to work with couples who really enjoy each other & aren't afraid to laugh & smile often. The only downside to getting to know Nicole & Tony is that we won't be able to shoot the wedding in Oklahoma later this year & now we know what we are missing out on! ;)

Love this series! How ridiculously adorable are these two!?!

Love this one - hot stuff! ;)

We found a really sweet parking deck toward the end of the day - loved all the concrete & great lines in this place.

Thank you again, guys! Best of luck with the wedding!

jessica + rich // wedding . wake forest nc

Jessica & Rich were "Gettin' Hitched" this past Halloween & we are so glad they decided to have us along to photograph their day. I don't know if words can describe how much we loved working with Jessica, Rich, & their fantastic friends & family. They are such down to earth & ridiculously fun people, it would have been impossible not to enjoy shooting this wedding.

I am in love with this engagement ring!

I could spend all day photographing this girl - Jessica makes for quite a sassy bride!

Jessica & Rich opted for a first look & we're so glad they did! We love when our couples do this - it gives us tons of time before the ceremony to take lots of fun photos of the bride, groom, & wedding party. Plus it gives us a chance to shoot cute photos (like these next four) of that special first moment when the bride & groom lay eyes on each other!

Look at these two working it - fierce! ;)

Now this is what I call a nice looking wedding party.

Loved this spot we found across the street from the ceremony site - perfect colors for a fall wedding.

My favorite!!

The ceremony & reception were held at [ the Cotton Company ] in Wake Forest. It's a great renovated cotton warehouse with exposed wood beams & original brickwork.

Jessica & Rich had so many fun details to shoot at the reception that I couldn't help but post a million of images of it all. Loved the trees & hanging tealights with all the fun flowers mixed in. The pumpkin Rich carved as a surprise for Jessica was the perfect touch to the entry table.

[ Catering Works ] put together a fabulous dinner with lots of options for the vegetarians in attendance. My personal favorites were the delicious mashed potato bar, the variety of dips with pita wedges, & the tomato basil cheese & crackers. Yum!

[ Catering Works ] also provided a carrot cake & tasty dessert station with chocolates & cheesecake lollipops.

Jessica & Rich are way too adorable for words. At weddings like this, where you can tell that the bride & groom make each other so unbelievably happy, it's impossible not to spend the whole day with a huge smile on your face. Being surrounded by couples that have the kind of contagious happiness that Jessica & Rich have is exactly why we are so in love with doing what we do.

I wish I could begin to show you the amount of ridiculous moves that were going down on the dance floor this night, but I think the next couple shots will have to do, since I've already posted about a zillion images from this wedding. :)

Thank you guys again so much for everything! We truly enjoyed being a part of your day.
