Colin + Molly: Married!!!! | The Cotton Room. Durham, NC

weddingsbecci amesComment

Molly's mom made the first contact with me, to photograph the wedding and it was fantastic. We chatted on the phone for quite some time and she would go on and on about what a great couple Colin and Molly are and how she was just so very happy that they were getting married. I assumed, like most people would assume, that she was a bit biased. I was wrong. I met Colin and Molly at Guglhupf for danishes and lattes one late morning and I instantly liked them. They are one of those couples that laugh and laugh and laugh. They seemed just so comfortable together too. I personally think that is a sign of a good match.

Then the wedding day came! I was a bit nervous because we didn't get to have an engagement session but they are, again,  just such wonderful people and just so easy to work with, and was only my second Jewish wedding. (I really love Jewish weddings by the way. I would convert just to take part in the Hora for myself, but I think the rabbi would turn me away if I said that.)  They had a first look that made me tear up a little, from behind the viewfinder then went straight into portraits where I would pose them and they would just talk and laugh and laugh some more. It made me love them even more.  

Congratulations to you both!!!! I know that you will have an amazing life together.

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

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.
