Happy Friday! I’m back in the office today after an amazing few days at the Creative at Heart Conference in Raleigh and I’m excited to finally introduce you to Maya and Will! Maya found us thanks to a co-worker and started following our work even before Will popped the question. Isn’t that amazing?! We were […]

We met Kelly and Mike this past April at Kelly’s brother and sister-in-law’s wedding at HollyHedge Estate this past April. Kelly played the harp during the wedding ceremony and I remember thinking that was such a special touch to have her be a part of the ceremony in such a unique way. Fast forward just […]

The Details Kate and Mike met in high school and have the cutest proposal story! They were picking out their Christmas tree for their first Christmas in their home together last December. Mike asked Kate “Is this the one?” to which Kate responded “I think so” thinking he was talking about the tree! He said […]

The Details I first met Kate when we photographed her sister Sue’s wedding last summer. Kate was actually instrumental in finding us when she was helping her sister look for a wedding photographer so we were excited to get to know her throughout the day. She was one of the most caring maids of honor we’ve […]

Grace and Anthony both attended Manhattan College and they met there during their freshman year. Neither of them can really recall their very first time meeting, but they tend to agree it was mostly likely at Liffy’s II – a very classy local dive bar. Their first date reminds me of my husband Jay’s and mine because it was actually a double […]

I met up with Megan and Kevin back in February on what we thought would be a cold winter day. Since they had chosen to do a Longwood Gardens engagement session, we planned on being able to do most of the photos indoors. But when the day came, it was spring-like at 66 degrees! We couldn’t have […]

I first met Leigh Ann after I photographed her best friend’s newborn baby boy and connected with her over blogging. We ended up collaborating on a few fun projects and I was thrilled when I found out Leigh Ann was engaged and wanted us to be a part of her wedding day. Leigh Ann is […]

I remember when I was single and spent my time dreaming of meeting my future husband during my travels abroad. I thought for sure I’d meet him somewhere in France, or maybe Spain. Well, that’s definitely not how it turned out for me (I met Jay just a few towns away from mine!) but that’s exactly […]

Yesterday’s unseasonably warm weather may be gone now but here’s a sweet engagement session to bring us back to summer. I met up with Shalu and Dan at the gorgeous Skylands Manor last September. These two went to the same high school, but didn’t meet until mutual friends invited them to a pool party. They didn’t hit it […]
