It's wonderful when you get to see old clients/friends after a couple of years, to see where there lives together have taken them, to see them still just as happy as on their wedding day. It's incredible. It makes me feel as though I truly have the best job ever. That's how this session was. I haven't seen Katey and Matt since their wedding at The Umstead Hotel two years ago and it was just delightful to chat them up once again. And to meet this sweet little girl. She's perfect!
I met Lysandra about a year ago and have been lucky enough to get to call her a friend now. When she had her sweet little boy, she decided that she was going to start her own clothing line. She has so much talent, such a great eye, and I am so thrilled that the fashion world gets to take part in her artistry. She's started out with a line skirts, scarves and clutches. Just wonderful. Here are some of the shots for her lookbook.

I was so incredibly thrilled when I was invited to photograph this styled shoot at the Merrimon-Wynne House in Raleigh. It's a new wedding venue, and Jodi did the best job making this house incredible. I got to work so many wedding vendors on this project. I really loved all the beautiful calligraphy and stationary from Gabi and Alison from One & Only . All of the work was just gorgeous and perfect. Their attention to detail is artistic and meticulous. I love their colors and style. Also, Anna from from Simply Elegant Floral Designs. Oh my goodness, from now on, seeing what she did when left to her own devices. It was totally inspiring. I wish this were always the case. Gorgeousness everywhere.
This photo shoot was especially fun because I don't normally get to photograph a "wedding" at such a slow pace and have such freedom (read: time). It was really incredible. I also really loved having some input into the styling. I didn't say much, but everyone really allowed me free reign which was super cool.
This styled shoot also got featured on Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book. You can see that post here.
