Josh & Jill – Rustic Fall Wedding – Smithfield, NC Wedding Photography

Josh & Jill’s wedding day was the first time this year that Kevin and I actually felt like fall was finally arriving.  The sun was shining, the breeze was whirling through the tree branches and the leaves began to fall.  How appropriate it was for their rustic, fall wedding themed with apples and sunflower decorations.

Josh & Jill love going to Tennessee and when they do, they always visit “The Apple Barn”; its one of their favorite spots.  Throughout their wedding, elements of apples and leaves and sunflowers provided splashes of fall color to complement the perfect fall-eqsue air outside.  Jill couldn’t have planned it any better.

Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography01If you have been following our blog, you got a chance to see Jill’s incredible bridal portraits taken at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh.  As radiant as she was in her bridal portraits, I think she exuded even more happiness and an overwhelming amount of love on her wedding day.  Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography03Jill is such a sweet heart and it was an absolute honor to spend the past few months getting to know her and her family as the wedding preparations were being made.  Its safe to say that Josh is marrying into a wonderful family that thinks the world of him!  Not to mention, Jill’s parents’ names & her sister’s name all start with the letter J.  So…Josh was destined to be the one for her.  Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography06Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography07Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography04Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography05Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography16Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography17Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography18Josh & Jill chose to do a first look before their wedding.  In case you are new to the photography realm, a first look is more of a modern way to photograph the bride & groom seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day.  We set up their first look outside by a rustic barn to capture the essence of their day.  In a quaint setting with just the two of them, Josh was able to see his bride in all her glory.  He was able to take in all of her details, the sequins on her floral sash, the buttons down her dress, her hair, and all the beauty that she radiated.  Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography14Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography13Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography12Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography11Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography09Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography10
Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography08Lets talk about these adorable little ones!  They were hands down the sweetest kids to photograph & I think they take the cake for the most adorable.  Plus, sweet baby boy Maxton stole everyone’s heart with his hat, bow tie, suspenders and those big blue eyes!Goldsboro_NC_Wedding_Photography_Brittani_Schultze_20Goldsboro_NC_Wedding_Photography_Brittani_SchultzeGoldsboro_Wedding_Photography15Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography19Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography20Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography21Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography22From the macarena, to the Wobble and then the chicken dance…I think its safe to say that a great time was had by all.  Jill really wanted to convey a feeling of togetherness at her wedding.  She wanted everyone to gather as friends, family, and loved ones – making memories and cherishing each other’s company. We were so honored to be their photographers and document their wedding story. Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography23Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography24Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography25Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography26Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography27Goldsboro_Wedding_Photography28

2014 Cool Weather Fashion Guide – What to Wear – Goldsboro, North Carolina Photography

The seasons are changing; temperatures are dropping and the fall boots are making an appearance!  (Can I get an AMEN?!)  With the change in seasons comes a change in fashion and style so I thought it would be most appropriate to share a little secret Cool Weather Fashion Guide with you! Here’s eight simple outfits to keep you looking and feeling good for your “colder weather” portrait session. The best part is, you won’t have to look far to piece these great looks together – they’re comprised of solid-color basics that can be found in a single shopping trip.  Paired with some funky jewelry, a hat or a colorful scarf and some stylish boots, you’ll be the best looking dude/dudette on the block.  Each outfit is paired with a rich Pantone hue to get you excited about clothes-shopping for your big day in front of my camera.     1.  Margarita Margarita is a soft sage green that reminds us Spring is somewhere around the corner, but not quite here yet! This hue is innocent and graceful, and can be worn as an accent color or as the main piece. Leather shoes and accessories look fantastic alongside this tone. Margarita2.  Provincial Blue This special grey­blue is introverted and complementary to just about anyone lucky enough to be wearing it! Whites and greys are ideal companions to create a complete look. Lovely to look at on camera and versatile for indoors, outdoors, urban, or out in nature, Provincial Blue is a great, low­risk choice for anyone putting together their outfit. ProvincialBlue3. Pumpkin Spice What a deliciously exciting color to spice up your photographs! Done properly, this oh­so­Autumn tone could turn your photographs into something your friends will envy for years to come. Try using this spicy hue as an accent color, or if it’s a main piece like a top or jacket, make sure the rest of what you’re wearing is dark and subtle. The yellow­orange will pop on camera and look amazing. PumpkinSpice4. Rhubarb Rich rhubarb red is ready for Fall or Winter ­ a deep, complex tone that commands attention. This festive color is so powerful even a small accent of it, like a pair of shoes or wool scarf, is enough to add vibrance to the dullest of outfits and backgrounds. Don’t overdo it, though ­ too much can also overpower your skin tones! Rhubarb5.  Sheepskin Warm, comfortable, subtle ­ sheepskin evokes the best part of cooler weather. Incorporating sand tones into your wardrobe adds a calming, natural touch. Sheepskin accents like boots and slippers provide wonderful texture to your images and keep your toes toasty! Sheepskin6. Teal Ah, teal ­ both bright and melancholy, energetic yet relaxed. This popular color looks fabulous in front of the lens, especially set against cloudy skies and yellow­orange leaves. It also looks fabulous on just about everybody, making it a wonderful choice as the star of your outfit. Teal7. Tea Rose Blushing shades of dusty pink and mauve are uppity and oh­so­cute against the moody grey skies of the cooler season. Leather footwear and chocolate accents ground the brighter pinks while adding natural textures to the overall look. A lovely set of outfits perfect either in our out from under the umbrella!   TeaRose8. Cascade Brighter than the other blues in this collection, Cascade is optimistic and playful. Soft sand tones as accents allow this special blue to shine. Cascade is another wonderful choice for those who aren’t quite sure what color would look best; it won’t let you down! A perfect color to wear for the camera. Cascade
