Lookout Mountain Engagement

"There are no strangers here; only friends you haven't met yet." William Butler Yeats We rode the incline railroad together, but barely noticed each other in the excitement of riding a train backwards straight up the mountain. We wandered around Lookout Mountain together, but had no reason to interact as we peered over the Chattanooga valley and snapped scenic photos. Strangers  who had no reason to become friends until paths crossed and … [Read More...]

Christ United Methodist Memphis Wedding

No matter how much planning goes into a wedding day, everything boils down to two people: the bride and the groom.  No matter how much time is (or isn't!) spent on hair and makeup, the groom is sure his bride is the most beautiful bride in the world (as it ought to be!).  No matter how many Pinterest details and DIY projects are completed, the bride is there to marry her bestest friend and start life as a wife.  No matter how many flower girls … [Read More...]

Kernersville Family Photos

Johnnie and I are practically best friends now.  He may not realize it yet, of course, but it's true! I celebrated with his parents at our Kernersville maternity session, we giggled together during his newborn session, and now he's over a year old and now we're celebrating the start of another summer with Kernersville family photos. Randall led our mini caravan of diesel-powered cars winding down neighborhood roads so expertly I didn't have … [Read More...]

Bellingham in the Rain

To spend time in Bellingham, WA in the winter is to flirt with rain.   To combine an alleyway (my favorite!) with fabulous and quirky sweaters (Beau's favorites!) and a classy pipe (Beau's favorite!) with backlit raindrops (my favorite!), these photos are basically - well - AWESOME. (Said with all the humility possible, of course. :-P) Bellingham in the rain is stunning, even if it's a little complicated. We managed quite the operation: Beau's … [Read More...]

I went to Ontario

Guys!  Canadaland is SO MUCH BIGGER than this little tiny thumbprint  section I claim as my own.    Yeah, yeah, yeah.  No duh.  But for all my criss-cross-apple-sauce of the continent, I've only ever been in one Canadian airport: Vancouver. I've driven into Alberta, yes, and poked my head into Ontario 15 years ago, but all this is just a smidgen of reality. Last month, I visited  FOUR new Canadian airports (Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa) … [Read More...]

I went to Chattanooga

I didn't think I would ever arrive.  I decided a couple quick flights would be the easiest way to get from Greensboro to Chattanooga.  Theoretically, I was right.  A twenty-two minute flight GSO to CLT, a ninety … Continue Reading

Winston Salem Engagement Photos

When Matt & Kristen and I were trying to coordinate a date for engagement shoot, my (very brief) weekend in North Carolina was already plumb full except for one dreaded sunrise slot on a Monday morning.  I'm not … Continue Reading

Mayor’s Mansion Inn Bridal Shower

My kitchen plumbing died tonight.  Hyperbolic, maybe.  Traumatic, definitely.  Instead of triumphantly washing those pots (you know the ones -- the ones that "just need to soak a bit" . . . . and have been "just … Continue Reading
