Samuel & Brooke | Brooklyn Arts Center

I am SO excited to share Sam and Brooke's wedding today! I looked forward to their special day from the day we first met for coffee!! To give a little introduction, they are high school sweethearts. Brooke told me that Sam was easy to fall in love with, and I'm sure Sam would say the exact same about Brooke! If you haven't heard their proposal story, check out my Instagram post here! It's precious! Also, you have to see their beautiful Fort Fisher engagement session here! They are such a fun and caring couple, full of love for each other, Christ, and others; it was evident throughout their entire wedding day!

There were so many things I loved about Sam and Brooke's wedding, but I'll just name a few! 

1. Brooke's wedding hair!! It was unique and so GORGEOUS!! 

2. Their timeline was perfect! So many wedding days can feel rushed or the bride and groom don't have much time to spend together, but Sam and Brooke had about half an hour before the ceremony and a good bit of time afterwards just to relax and enjoy each others company! They chose to do a first look which allowed them to do this and I think they would agree it was one of the best decisions!! Also, their first look is PRECIOUS! You'll love it!

3. Instead of cake they chose to serve donuts. Coming from a girl who loves donuts, I thought it was such a fun idea!! 

Now on to the pictures!! Leave Sam and Brooke some love in the comments!

Fort Fisher Family Pictures

This session was in the works since January!! Sara (in the bright blue dress!) inquired about my availability for July several months ago! Her and her family were going to be visiting Wilmington during the week of the 4th and she wanted to be sure to get family pictures! It was so good to finally meet her and her beautiful family. We were a little concerned about the weather since it called for rain ALL week, but the rain held off and we even had a decent temperature for July which is always a blessing on a session!! 

I love all the happiness in these pictures! Enjoy!

Sara Beth | Atlanta, Georgia Senior Pictures

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I took a quick weekend trip to Atlanta a few weeks ago! It was so much fun and I enjoyed the weekend visiting friends, watching Braves games, and exploring the city! 

Sara Beth is my friend's cousin, so I saw her occasionally when I lived in Georgia. When she heard I was going to be in the area, she asked me to take her senior pictures! I found out at the session that she has been telling her mom for two years that she wanted me to take her senior pictures, so I'm so glad that we were able to work it out!! 

She is gorgeous and did such a great job!! I love the way these turned out!
