Brigitte & Jimmy | Engagement

UNC, Chapel Hill, NC engagement photos.

These two radiate joy. Sometime engagement shoots can be slightly awkward for a few minutes. It’s usually the first time I’m meeting the couple face to face. They don’t know me, I don’t know them, all we’ve had are a few emails, some phone chats and the occasional skype date. I walked into this one fully expecting to have to break the ice. Instead, I walked into two people with huge smiles on their faces and a genuine love for each other. Two people who were very easy to photograph.

Their interactions were so natural. They obviously love each other and love spending time together. It’s going to be very hard to wait an entire year to photograph them again!!! Not that I’m wishing time away, but I can’t wait for their wedding! A mix fusion of American and Vietnamese cultures, plus these two, it’s going to be epic.

Brigitte & Jimmy, thanks for making my job easy, for greeting me with your big smiles, and spending an afternoon with me hanging out and taking pictures. Enjoy every single image.

Sibbie | Newborn

Newborn & Lifestyle family photographer in Raleigh, NC photographs three sisters.

Sibbie Grace is just the sweetest little thing you’ve ever seen. 9ish pounds when she was born, all squishy and pure cuteness. I could have eaten her up!!

It’s been my privilege to photograph all 3 girls in this family as newborns, and I’m secretly hoping they keep having babies just so I can take more pictures : ) They make the cutest ones! I’ve known Sibbie’s parents since high school, and it’s been so fun watching them grow their family. They are raising three strong girls with pure hearts, and it’s beautiful to see.

Thanks for letting me love on your newest little one and capture her tiniest state, even if it wasn’t so tiny : ) She’s beautiful, just like her momma! Congrats!

Amanda & Robert | Engagement

These NC engagement portraits taken in a field in Garner, NC are full of love, lift and laughter.

Amanda, Robert & Bentley. I loved photographing these three more than I can put into words. Amanda was a bridesmaid in a wedding a few years back, and now getting to work with her for her own dream come true is so much fun! She and Robert make the perfect couple. They do life 100% together. After just a few minutes with them, I could tell they’re meant to be. They were all smiles, laughter and snuggles. Just the way I like my couples : ) Having Bentley there made it! He’s SUCH a sweetie, and absolutely loved running around in that big field!

Can we talk about this field for a minute?! Oh. My. Gosh. The light, the tall grass, the tree…swoon. This is all at their wedding venue, so you can only imagine how excited I am to go back there in a few months and photograph them all dressed up! Seriously can’t wait!

Thank you two for spending an afternoon with me and Ada. She loved tagging along and playing with Bentley : ) Enjoy every single image! Can’t wait for the big day!

Anna | Bridals

Het Landhuis in Chapel Hill, NC was the perfect setting for these wedding bridal portraits.

Ahh, Anna in that ballgown! She couldn’t have picked a better dress for her. It fit her personality and wedding style perfectly! We had so much fun wandering around a farm in Chapel Hill a few months back taking these. She radiated joy and excitement, and soaked up every second of her bridals!

It’s not often you get to dress up like a princess, which is what makes bridals so special. It’s one more time to wear your dress. One more time to get pampered. One more time to literally feel like a princess for a day.

Anna, thank you so much for everything! We love you, and your big gown and big personality. You make me smile every single time I see your beautiful face. Congrats on your marriage! Can’t wait to show you the rest of your wedding portraits!

Darling Registration Day

Darling Wedding Workshop registration is open!

Today’s the day!!!! Darling Wedding Workshop registration opens at 10AM to the public, and 8AM to Instagram followers of @darlingweddingworkshop! I’m beyond excited for this day to finally be here! This is a dream come true for sure. Admittedly, in last Thursday’s post, I’m slightly nervous. But that’s how I know this is right. This is where my heart is leading me, and I can’t wait to share it with 20 new friends!

The small community that’s already gathered around to support Darling has blown my mind. The love it’s received and the words of encouragement mean so much. I can’t even tell you all. Thank you for sharing in my dream and being part of something that lifts others up. Truly, it means the world.

If you’d like to officially be part of the inaugural Darling workshop, head over to the website (www.darlingweddingworkshop.com) at 10AM to register during the 48 hour special where tickets are $150 off regular price! And don’t forget, Mastin Labs, is giving away an entire set of their 3 Lightroom film presets to one lucky lady who registers during the 48 hour special!

Thanks again for all your love and support! I would love nothing more than to have you there!
