Amanda & Landon // February 26th, 2017 // The Stockroom

So many words come to mind when I think about Amanda and Landon’s intimate February wedding: elegant, classy, timeless, chic, romantic… just to name a few! When I first met with them to go over the details of their day, I couldn’t wait to see how it would all come together.

Brittany and Jorge//December 9th, 2016//The Stockroom at 230

When I think back of meeting Brittany and Jorge last February for coffee to discuss their wedding I remember how sweet and loving they both were to each other and knew their wedding day would overflow with that same love and make for a heartfelt day.

Emily first reached out to us back in early August of 2015 (that feels like forever ago now!) to  inquire about a fall wedding of the next year. She had nothing decided upon yet (no date or venue) and knew she would need help with the whole gambit. So, we set up a meeting and read more »

Danielle and Michael//October 26, 2016//Wake Forest

When a photographer contacts you to help plan her wedding day you know you’re in for a treat because of their creativity, style and sense of knowing exactly what they do and do not want.
