The Best of 2017

Is it crazy that 2017 is already coming to an end? It feels as though we should be in June or July, not in December, and about to celebrate Christmas, but here we are friends. I have had so many amazing sessions this year, and have gotten to work with some amazing industry peers. I really hope you enjoy this highlight reel, and a few outtakes.


2017 started off with a snow storm, and a storm in my personal life too. Little did I know that 2017 would be filled with challenges, but would also bless me with some amazing friends, old and new.

I had this crazy idea of shooting in Lowes Home Improvement, particularly in the light section. This was an experimental shoot, but Calle was up for it. We had so many laughs in between takes, because we had to dodge so many employees trying to catch us.

Omar and Abi were one of my favorite couples to work with this summer. How adorable are they?

Shooting Karli’s senior session in this sunflower field was definitely goals! Ahh! Sunflowers!

Jeremy was an excellent assistant on this shoot. He was making Karli laugh, and helping me with my reflector.

At first we didn’t think we would get to have Karlie’s senior session. Two miles from the shoot location, I ran into fog so thick I couldn’t see one foot in front of me, but just as I pulled into the drive-way the fog seemed to just disappear. It was misting, but we pulled off an amazing, foggy senior session.

I had the chance to meet up with this beautiful lady, Sarah, at Camino Bakery this summer, and then we had a little photo excursion in Downtown Winston-Salem. One of my favorite places is the Art Walk. So many beautiful murals, and sculptures.

I had a wonderful opportunity to work with Ruby People’s Photography on two weddings over the summer. This particular wedding was held in downtown Asheville, NC. Asheville is such a beautiful place, and I cannot wait to go back and visit again.

The wedding party got ready at this posh little hotel, The Loft, and the reception after the ceremony was held at Park Tavern.

The father of the bride was so happy to see his little girl in her wedding dress. There were tears, from everyone.

This was probably my favorite spot we did photos at. The infamous, ‘Good Vibes’ Silo.

When the father daughter dance goes from this sweet beautiful song to “Sweet Child of Mine” by Guns N Roses, you know you are in for an epic reception.

This was my second wedding with Ruby in her hometown of Sylvia, NC at The Vintage Barns Event Center.

Harlie and Tyler were a complete joy to work with, and I loved Harlie’s enthusiasm through out the whole process.

KayMarie’s shoot was so much fun, and the fact that she wanted to use a smoke bomb, have part of her shoot in the best little coffee shop in town, and had this really awesome Indiana Jones hat just made it even better!
