Brinson and Kaitlyn [and their two sweet pups] sure know how to get ready for the holidays. I love this documentary Real Life Session that captures their current chapter of life perfectly...Read More
Jake loves Brooke. Like, so much so, that he doesn't want to spend the rest of his life with anyone else... On Christmas Eve, surrounded by Brooke's family in Raleigh, he surprised her with a marriage proposal. It turns out, Brooke loves Jake quite a bit, too, because she said Y-E-S ! It was such an honor for Chad and I to photograph these two lovebirds a couple days after the proposal when their excitement was still super fresh.Read More
PEACE to you and yours on this Christmas Day! Today, Chad and I are soaking in peace, quiet and calm—it's our last Christmas as a family of two and our last one in an apartment. We slept in, cozied up on the couch, made a pancake breakfast and went for a walk (it's 75° today—warmer than it was over a month ago when these pictures were taken!).Read More
Aaron and Allison are happily married. They're dog people (as Bear will joyfully attest to). They're coffee people. They're adventurers, Jesus-lovers, Gospel-spreaders, motorcycle enthusiasts, artists, photographers and lovers of people. They are storytellers for so many others (including Chad and I!), so what an honor it was for me to document THEIR story during their favorite season together—Christmastime! A Real Life Session inside their cozy Fort Mill home was perfect to capture their genuine laughter and love for each other.Read More
Merry Christmas, everyone! There is so much to be joyful about. On this day, Jesus's birthday, may you choose joy.
When we casually met Jacob and Ashlee nearly two years ago at a conference in Atlanta, we did not imagine that today we'd be navigating life's journeys together as friends and roommates. We loved the recent opportunity to take some photos of them for their Christmas card and wanted to publicly thank them for their friendship. I hope you enjoy this story and these sweet image highlights...Read More
"Home for the holidays" was a complex phrase for us over the last ten days. This post is a quick little wrap-up regarding that very phrase for us while we traveled to see family for Christmas.Read More
On Saturday, Chad and I went to our first downtown festival in Raleigh: Winterfest! Despite the rain, and even though it was 55°F (MUCH warmer than any "winter" celebration these northerners have had!) we very much enjoyed our experience. It turns out, you don't have to be able to see your breath to make it feel like Christmas. *wink, wink*
