Kateleigh & Zack | Downtown Wilmington Engagement Photos


Kateleigh and I met a few years ago while she was living in Wilmington. I was disappointed when she moved away shortly after meeting! But I still remember us chatting over coffee about Zack. I’ve hoped that if they got married I’d have the opportunity to photograph their wedding. When Kateleigh reached out to me a few months ago inquiring about wedding photography, I was thrilled!! These two are SO sweet and cute together. I can’t wait for August 💕

We had a wonderful time on their engagement session! It was so good to see Kateleigh again. We started out at her grandparent’s lake house and it was GORGEOUS! I just love the Spanish moss!!! Then we went to Downtown Wilmington for some more pretty photos! I’m excited to share these!

  1. Kateleigh has the cutest little dog, Margie!! You know I love when my couples bring their dogs to sessions! Just look at that sweet little face!

  2. Kateleigh is a fantastic jewelry maker!! She created the bracelet in the picture above. She engraved the heart, a drawing from their first Valentine’s card. SO SWEET!!! She creates signs too and made the one Margie is wearing! Check out her Etsy shop here.


I’ve wanted to take a picture like this on these beautiful steps of Downtown Wilmington’s courthouse for a long time! Usually, the sun is shining too brightly for it to be the perfect spot, but the clouds worked in our favor!

Kyle & Dana | Seapath Marina Engagement Photos


I’ve been behind in blogging, but I just had to post Dana and Kyle’s engagement photos before their wedding!! Just two more days! I’m so excited for their special day at the Blockade Runner in Wrightsville Beach. It will match with their coastal themed engagement pictures. We took their engagement photos at Seapath Marina, a place dear to Dana’s heart! She spent many summers on the family boat. I LOVE taking pictures at marinas, so this was so much fun for me! Dana and Kyle were so sweet and funny that our entire time together was a treat.


How CUTE are their dogs?? It was so funny decking them out in their little outfits and signs. So fun!!


I love getting behind-the-scenes shots like this! The struggle to tie a bowtie was real and YouTube was necessary. Dana did a great job and finally got it!!


How GORGEOUS is her ring?? I can’t wait to photograph it up close on Sunday!


Shana & Edward | Wilmington, NC Wedding Photographer


I loved my time with Shana and Edward at Wrightsville Beach! Because they aren’t local, it was my first time getting to meet both of them! That’s always such a treat for me! These two were so sweet and I loved every second of our evening together. They rocked their session. I love how many beautiful shots we got of these two on that perfect, glowy evening. I can’t wait for their Wrightsville Manor wedding this fall :)
