Bridal Portraits | Old Sherrill's Inn | Fairview, NC

Spending time at The Old Sherrill's Inn is good for the soul. The history and traditions run deep, and I soak up the nostalgia every time I visit. The house was built in the late 1700's and became an Inn for travelers to stay when passing through Hickory Nut Gap. Outstanding views, and secret hide-a-ways surround the house and endless paths lead to more stories and adventures. This shoot was a little different as I teamed up with one of my favorite people in the world and extremely talented wedding photographer Jeremy Russell. Abby (the bride, also a local wedding photographer) and her husband Andrew are the sweetest couple. We had a great time making these images together. Click here to see Jeremy's awesomeness.

Bridal Portrait | Biltmore Estate, Asheville NC

I'm so excited to post this Biltmore Bridal Session and even more excited to say as of yesterday Courtney is now officially my sister-in-law. Brooke Priddy of Ship to shore designed Courtney's one of a kind dress using pieces of her Mother and Grandmothers wedding dresses. We were thrilled that Candace from Mingle Events could bring some of her props to the shoot and really had a lot of fun playing around with the vintage travel theme. The McIntosh family pretty much love everything with a wheel on it and my brother-in-law is going to just die when he sees his bride on this vintage Bicycle. We timed the shoot with Courtney's run through with her hair stylist at Suraj Spa & Salon and squeezed in 30 minutes of shooting before our session was cut short due to an absolute down pour! Big thanks also to Bella Blooms for designing this special bouquet for Courtney.

Ginny's Bridal Portraits | Landrum, South Carolina

This equestrian bridal session in Landrum South Carolina was nothing short of gorgeous! Who doesn't love a bridal session in the country with beautiful light, a fantastic couple, four horses, a great dane and a grey hound RIGHT?

I photographed Ginny and Jarrod's wedding in Asheville yesterday and even though Ginny was wearing a different dress I thought I should wait to post these until after their big day. Ginny loves her animals so much and I (who have never rode a horse bedsides you know a donkey at the beach) really enjoyed learning how to care for horses and what amazing temperaments they have. Ginny and Jarrods love for each other is so sweet and I am honored to have been their wedding photographer.
