Welcome to the

High Hampton holds a special place for me and my family. So many beautiful memories have been made there and it’s a favorite spot for me to capture weddings. Things I loved about this wedding…

1. Their dog was completely adorable and wore the sweetest bandana around her neck.
2. The bride made her own itinerary programs that were printed beautifully. I love the thoughtful details like this that truly personalize a wedding experience for the guests.
3. There was a flower girl and flower baby! Cuteness overload.
4. They had llamas at the cocktail hour.
5. Katherine’s dad sang with the band.

Katherine provided these fun facts…

Frank and I have known each other since meeting in 1st grade and 3 of Frank’s groomsmen were in our same class.

Lilah, our dog was once a mangy stray that Frank found at a lake in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (She’s come a long way).

Our officiant was a former coworker of mine. Although he is well over 30 years my senior and we don’t have much in common, we are best buddies!

Emily and Brad’s wedding at High Hampton in Cashiers was truly beautiful. A few of my favorite things about this event…

1. Emiy’s bridesmaids wore dresses that were in the same color scheme, but all uniquely matched their personalities.
2. It rained throughout their rehearsal evening, then rained all day on the wedding day until 30 minutes before their ceremony. I’ve never seen the rain clear so fast.
3. Emily said I was her “spirit animal.” I’ve never had such a cool compliment in my life. Nothing better than forming a bond and feeling that I can document a persons true personality.
4. The moments after the ceremony when everyone was hugging the couple made me teary eyed. So much love among the family and friends of this couple!
5. I laughed so hard when the guest placed funny face cards over their mouths on the dance floor. So fun to photograph the fun.
