Mia and Rivers

Mia and Rivers had the most beautiful wedding at Snipes Farm, and the craziest I have seen by far (check out the garter toss shot)! Here is a little preview of the images from the wedding... There were so many amazing moments, I had a hard time choosing what to post. Enjoy!









Thank you Mia and Rivers, I had a blast at your wedding!

Shakori Hills!

Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance (and fire-hooping) is always something to look forward to here in Chatham County. This past weekend, I got a chance to attend and capture images of what was happening. There are photos here from the bands Dub Addis, and of course Howie DeWitt! I'm not sure what band the fiddle player was from, anyone out there know? Also the amazing Julia Hartsell of HoopDrum wowed everyone with her fire hooping.

Howie Dewitt rocked it out on the Grove Stage and had the eclectic crowd (see the chicken) begging for more even at 1:30 in the morning. You may remember them from when I photographed them back in February. I'll be seeing them again at a wedding in Chapel Hill that I am photographing next week. I can't wait!

Summer Memories

Personal projects always get placed on the back burner don't they? These images are from my trip to the beach with my family in August. A few quiet moments....

Lauren and Mike ~ Lake Norman Wedding

Lauren and Mike had the most beautiful wedding on the bank of Lake Norman. The early September weather was lovely and the lake was glistening, creating the perfect backdrop for their exchange of hand written vows. My sister Katie Nail helped me photograph this wedding. She got that image of the beautiful bridal bouquet on one of the dock chairs. Look out for more of Katie's work in the future! Thank Lauren and Mike for being so kind, and may you live wonderfully ever after!
