Holiday Mini Sessions 2016!!!! | The Parlour at Manns Chapel. Chapel Hill, North Carolina

familiesbecci amesComment

Hi everyone! It's starting to get a little chilly outside (as in, not hot). Some of the leaves are starting to turn. It's time to start thinking about winter, so I'd like to announce The First Annual Holiday Mini Sessions! And they are coming up soon! It's going to be at The Parlour at Manns Chapel on October 16th. It's going to be divine. There will be four different settings to choose from with some simple, classic props all over the grounds at The Parlour. I am so excited!

The sessions will come with twenty minutes with me. This will be perfect for all those couples and families who just don't need a whole session but need a good annual photo, Holiday Card photos or gifts. It will come with ten high res images, with a print release, online proofing for nine months and one 11x14 archival quality print. I'll even have Holiday Card Samples out to make it even easier for you this season (Holiday Cards will be sold à la carte). Sessions are $220. If you want to book a session, check out this link. Sign up quick though, it's all first come first serve.

Alison and Braxton are so incredibly sweet. I was so thrilled that I got to witness these two wonderful people get married!


Rebecca Dunn, at La Fete, did an absolutely amazing job with this wedding. Every detail is gorgeous. I hope I came close to capturing how inspiring it was. The photo above is of Alison stunned and in awe of her reception venue.

Anna & Joe at home: First Anniversary

couplesbecci amesComment

Anna and Joe were my first muses in North Carolina. She contacted me about shooting her wedding back when I still lived in Colorado. She sounded so incredibly nice on the phone and I was so excited to get here and meet them both. Anna and Joe had to pick our location for the engagement session because I had only been here a month and had no idea where I was and then I showed up at Brightleaf Square and there was this adorable couple and they were so IN LOVE and just as wonderful as I imagined and I liked them instantly. Then their wedding came along and it was gorgeous and there was just so much love and joy and all the things that I love about weddings (and I really felt like Anna and I had become friends). And now here we are. Anna and Joe are still ridiculously cute and still very much in love and they have a kitty and their first home and are celebrating their first anniversary and I got to be there for that tooooooooo! And so I went over and just hung out and documented this moment in their life.
