jennifer and jamie married | july 26. 2014

the smile on your face lets me know that you need me, theres a truth in your eye saying you’ll never leave me,

the touch of your hand says you’ll catch me if ever i fall… you say it best, when you say nothing at all…

lauren and corey married
july 18. 2014 | the stockroom

this post is longer than most cause i have a personal attachment to lauren.  she was a babysitter to my kidos (yes i still have her in my phone as “lauren babysitter”) and when she couldn’t babysit them any longer she intro’ed me to CHLOE who is my Very best friend in the whole world.  so i have lauren to thank for her.  and lauren pretty much is amazing on all levels and she picked a great guy, corey, to marry, so all that means this post is long.  oh and because i Loved her details, so there’s a bunch of those shots too.  AND because reverend barbara lodge was their officiant and she married richie and i so yeah… #loveherlovelauren&corey

amanda and jami married
july 12. 2014 | raleigh. nc

amanda and jami’s wedding was Such a fun one!  everyone there was so open and nice to us even though only amanda had met me a couple weeks before.  unfortunately this was a wedding that austin and ashley green were going to photograph, but with his passing only weeks before their wedding date, we stepped in to shoot this wedding for them.  we were glad we weren’t already booked for their date cause we had a great time with them!  i won’t ever forget jami tossing his hand in the air during their intro into the reception and flinging his ring off in the process!  after a quick, frantic search it WAS found!  whew!  and its crazy how we are raleigh wedding photogs but even still we find out venues we never knew existed!  we hadn’t ever heard of “delightful inspirations” but its a great place for an outside ceremony and has a great room inside for the reception!  who knew!  amanda and jami, we are thankful to have gotten to be a part of your day!  yall did a fabulous job with all your details!  loved it all!!
