Logan’s bridal portraits at Chapel in the woods Louisburg NC. Chapel in the Woods combines vintage and rustic charm for a truly enchanted wedding experience.

Yingqi Bridal portaits| Weddings| Barclay Villa Weddings


Yingqi’s bridal portraits were taken at Barclay Villa Castle in Angier, NC. Yingqi lives out of state so we photographed her bridals the week of the wedding. I arrived early and was graciously greeted by Daniel who works at Barclay Villa and to my surprise she is expecting a baby in 6wks.

Barclay definitely gave me the platform to do something creative inside the […]

Cardinal Club Bridal Wedding Photos | Wedding Venue Raleigh


I was very excited when Katrina asked to do her bridal photos at the Cardinal Club in Raleigh NC. The wedding venue is absolutely stunning inside and I cant wait for the reception. When I arrived I not knowingly parked directly in front of the Cardinal club but then walked all the way down Fayetteville Street downtown Raleigh not realizing I had hit the jackpot the first time around, LOL. Needless to say it was hot that day and I was in all black and was very happy that I still managed to arrive on time. There are many other great wedding venues […]
