Emily and Jeremy’s love story is one of a kind. They met in Greenville while attending East Carolina University. Jeremy and his friends “stole” the beautiful wreath on Emily’s apartment door and placed it on their door. They then painted themselves as heroes for “finding” her missing wreath. Despite the practical joke, the two ended up dating. Their wedding was much the same…full of laughter, love, and plenty of great dancing. Emily and her friend’s also choreographed a special dance for Jeremy during the reception that had their guests cheering. Talk about fun! One of the highlights of the day was the sunset walk along the Washington, NC Waterfront. The waterfront is a popular spot in Little Washington, NC and made a great backdrop for some great images of the two of them.

We wish this Emily & Jeremy many fun-filled years together with much love and laugher!

Family sessions are always fun. Whether is including the family pet, or creating fun images of the kiddos, we take great pride in making family portraits that capture the true essence of your family.

My unwritten motto is: Kids will be kids…let them be themselves.

Over the years, I’ve found the best images are ones where they’re free to just have fun.

Jessica & Quincy hunt together, fish together, ride 4-wheelers, and just enjoy life to the fullest. Their wedding was everything they hoped it would be…rustic, elegant, and a true celebration of their love for each other.

They chose an old farm complete with a bright red barn outside of Richmond, Virginia in the community of Amelia for their wedding. Homemade soups, sandwiches, and a smorgasbord of sweets prepared by their friends filled everyone up for a night of dancing and celebration.

Their wedding was certainly a night to remember! The two of them wrapped in a blanket and warmed by the fall sun certainly goes down as one of our favorite images from their weddings day. In fact it was recently featured online in Huff Post Weddings.
