Sarah & Blake – Romantic Fall Wedding – Goldsboro, North Carolina Wedding Photography

Sarah and Blake, two in-love romantics, are extremely fun to be around. Their relationship and vibrancy is contagious, adventurous, classy and timeless. Surrounding the air of celebration was great support from their family; one thing Brittani and I love about a wedding day is the dynamic of family. In even better words – we value it. We love when clients knit family into the seams of their big day. The fabric of Sarah and Blake’s wedding experience was woven through a legacy of love from generations emphasizing dedicated relationships. So, when she placed on every piece of jewelry and he tied his bow tie, it was for more than a big day – it was for the celebration of life together. Here’s some of our favorites that really bring out the emotion and experience of their romantic fall wedding.

Ashley & Christian – Woodland Farm Wedding – Goldsboro, NC Wedding Photography

Two of our very dear friends tied the knot this fall and we were so honored to be there to capture all of their sweet, intimate moments as husband and wife alongside their family and friends at their woodland farm wedding.  Ashley & Christian chose to have their wedding at the same place we took their engagement photos, Ashley’s family’s woodland farm land.  We made sure to incorporate the woods near her family’s house in their photos to serve as a symbol of her loving family and support system.

Ashley and Christian planned a very quick wedding & did a great job doing so!  Ashley’s mom & sister were instrumental in the planning process and did an amazing job on all the details from the handmade invitations & decor to the custom bridesmaid dresses sewn by Ashley’s mom.  With heavy inspiration from the crisp autumn air, fall colored leaves, wooden textures and sunflowers were prevalent.

Sarah & Phillip – Snowy Engagement Photos – Boone, North Carolina Wedding Photography

Today I would like to introduce you to two of the most thoughtful people I’ve ever met.  Sarah & Phillip welcomed us into their home in Boone, North Carolina and had warm cookies waiting for us when we walked in.  They had the bathroom stocked with men & women’s hair products & had extra blankets in case we were cold.  Everything we could have ever needed they had waiting for us.  The next morning we woke up to a text from Sarah wanting to check in on us to see if we needed anything.  She’s the definition of Southern Hospitality.  We had planned their session to be wrapped in fall colors, but when we arrived, we noticed SNOW!  Braving the chilly 21 degree weather, we ventured out for some snowy engagement photos at Bass Lake in Boone.  It was quite windy; the wind chill was a whopping 16 degrees.  To say that we were uncomfortable was quite an understatement, but Sarah & Phillip really wanted photos in the snow so we made it happen!  For once I didn’t have to tell my clients to snuggle up to each other because snuggling was much needed to share body heat!:)

Sarah & Phillip – Thanks for braving the snowy downpour with us.  It was an adventure I’ll never forget!  Hopefully your fingers & toes have thawed out since then.  We’re super honored to be your photographers & so thankful for your kindness & generosity extended towards us.  You guys are so sweet & we are pumped about your wedding!  :)

Dana & Zane – Woodsy Fall Engagement Session – Greenville, NC Wedding Photography

I love this blog post and I can’t decide why I love it so much.  The images are lovely, but I think the people in them are the best part.  Meet Dana & Zane.

Dana is a gem; I swear the Lord dropped her in my lap and said, “Here you go, B.  Your life will be a better place because this girl is in it.”  Dana has been my intern for a while and has become one of my dearest friends.  I’ve gotten the honor of seeing her grow into a super talented artist and photographer, too.  She’s got a heart of gold and goes above and beyond to serve our business; she’s always there whenever I need her.  Being that tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I thought it was fitting to share this post today because Dana has been such a huge blessing in my life this year.  I literally couldn’t have made it without her.  From responding to emails, keeping me organized, sharing new music, mailing things, burning discs, being my friend and all the other things she did for me; she most definitely made my life a little bit easier and more fun, too!  It has been such a joy to get to know her; our time spent editing and eating and laughing together will always be some of my dearest memories.

Dana & Zane are perfect for each other.  I remember meeting Zane for the first time;  seeing the two of them interact together was just so cute.  Zane is selfless, strong and confident, and totally head-over-heels in love with Dana.  Dana clearly adores him; good thing she snatched him up when she did because he is quite the charmer.  He is a dreamer, too, but a selfless one; he values Dana and her dreams even more than his own.  Together they aren’t afraid to be vulnerable and dream BIG, HUGE dreams together.  They are so young, creative, passionate and so talented..I think unstoppable is a good word to define them and I can’t wait to see where they are in 5 years.  One thing is for sure, no matter where life takes them, there will always be a place in our home for the two of them…and without a doubt, the dog Liza will be right there snuggled beside them.  (In case you didn’t know, Liza is our sweet German Shepard/Husky Mix.  She has her own hashtag, #thedogliza, and she’s kind of obsessed with Dana….like seriously.)

It was such a privilege to photograph Dana & Zane for their engagement session.  They both value the arts, so photography is a big deal to them.  Seeing them so excited about their photos made me that much more excited to be taking them.  They had a very specific vision they wanted to achieve and I think we did just that.  I hope you enjoy looking at their woodsy fall engagement session.  Grab you a cup of coffee and enjoy!

Stacy & Zac – Rustic Outdoor Wedding – Greenville, NC Wedding Photography

Stacy & Zac’s wedding may be the most personal and intimate wedding we’ve ever been a part of.  Their goal was for their guests to leave smiling and with their heart warm. A lot of effort was put into where they got married – on a hill surrounded by trees – and they even got to know the people who owned the land so they could learn of its history.  With a focus on family, the day was intertwined with a balance of laughter and tears..and sometimes so much laughter that resulted in tears.  Every family member chipped in and did their fair share to serve Stacy and Zac and ensure that their wedding day would be exactly what they had spent months planning for…see Stacy’s remarks below.

“It will be a Rustic Outdoor Wedding, a “farm wedding” themed with rustic accents like mason jars, whiskey barrels, a hay ride etc. Our focus is on family and everyone getting to know each other and having fun. Zac has a big family and they all live out of state so this may be the only time we are all together in one place, so we just want everyone to laugh and smile and get acquainted and love each other.”

Here’s some of my favorite images from their wedding day; it will be a special day that I remember for a long time!  To view their entire gallery, click here.
