My So Called Life: Denay

I am SO excited for senior portrait season. These sessions make me so happy! I am not, though, excited about shooting them in 98 degree weather, but that is a point for another day:) Meet Denay, love her! We had a great time at her rep session. Enjoy this beautiful day and these beautiful photos.

{Abigail & Joe} Greenville Wedding Photographer

People, I promise the blogging is going to pick up from here! Up now, the amazing Abigail and Joe (yes, I had three Joe grooms, three weeks in a row- that's not confusing at all when you throw my Joe into the mix). Their wedding in Bath, NC, which is outside of Greenville, was absolute stunning and picturesque. For starters, I could stare at Abigail all day. really, but not in a creepy way, I promise. The camera loves her and that always helps to make pretty pictures. Joe and Abigail have been together since high-school, so the wedding was really just the icing on the cake of their relationship. Family and friends celebrated with them, as did my Joe and I. You two, we couldn't be happier for you. These photos make me smile. big. and I hope they make you smile too as you look back on your day together.

Don't forget to watch the slideshow at the bottom for more photos.

Had to start with this photo. Love it. Also love a pair of Kate Spades on a wedding day- signs of good things to come:)


Love the cuff links Abigail gave Joe that had a little map of Bath on them.


See what I mean? Abigail can't take a bad photo.

Baby Love- Reid

He's a tiny one! Little sweet baby Reid. My favorite thing about this little five pounder is his tiny mohawk. His mama promises it just looks that way. How precious! How can you not love that?! Enjoy:)


Big sister Ella is proud

{Gean & Joe} Charlotte Wedding Photographer

Oh Gean and Joe! How I love you both! Joe and I had a fantastic time at Gean and Joe's wedding two weekends ago. They are fabulous, their friends are fabulous, their wedding was simply fabulous. They are both so fun to be around and taking pictures of them was a dream. One little bummer was that is was gross and rainy...the whole day. Lucky for these two, the Hilton uptown has a gigantic atrium with some decent light, so we were able to take most of the photos there. It was a total photo saver! kate with I DO DETAILS was a joy to work with as well. Gean and Joe, lets get together soon! Much Love!

Thailand Travels- Chiang Mai

So before our trip to Thailand becomes a year ago, I am determined to blog more of our personal photos. Here are my favorites from our trip to Chiang Mai, which is in the northern part of the country.

Seeing the elephants was one of our "must do" activities. We spent the better part of the day going to an Elephant Camp and riding the elephants. Now, riding the elephants, this sounds really fun. Joe and I were really excited. We talked about it for weeks. Really. Riding Elephants. It will be a blast! Sounds great! That is, until the elephant you are riding totally doesn't care that you are on his back, insists on climbing down a mountain while you are sitting on his hump to devour rain forest, leaving you at a 90 degree downward angle, 12 ft off the ground, and your new-years-eve-hung-over elephant guide cannot control your elephant and at one point jumps off your elephant and leaves you going down the mountain on your elephant with your fancy camera equipment. All the while, drunk elephant driver beats your elephant with a little pointed stick trying to get it to no avail. The elephant does what it wants. I'm just saying. Joe and I were both mcguivering ways to "loft" off the cameras and jump down, except that we were on the side of a mountain. It was a pretty intense 2 hours ( I think it was suppose to be 45 minutes). And on top of that both of us super super white people got burnt. So, all that to say: Elephants= Amazing. Riding Elephants= Scary.

Enjoy these photos!

Oh- one more thing! I had a lot of people ask about my Italy photos and if they were for sale. They are, and so are these. Email if there is one you are interested in.


Pre-elephant ride. Still super stoked about elephants.


LOVE this eye shot below that Joe took.


The long-necks of Chiang Mai.


Photos of the King and Queen of Thialand. These are everywhere you go in the country. On billboards, on highways, bridges, even in the smallest of towns there are photos of the K and Q.

Elephant painting a painting! This was truly amazing. Some of the elephants painted ACTUAL photos. Seriously, one painted a bunny. That was not by accident!


One of my favorite shots of the day. Taken by Joe. He is pretty great.

Lindsey Lee Bride: Abigail

On Saturday, Abigail and Joe got married in the oldest church in North Carolina. Bath, NC was the perfect setting for their sweet, sweet wedding. I can't wait to show you all of the images later in the week. For now, here are Abigail's bridals. Love her!


One of my most favorite shots. Can't decide if I like the tilt shift shot better or the 50mm(below). What do you think?
