I shot their wedding 7 years ago. I’ve photographed their lives moving from Savannah to Asheville on an incredible journey to open the BEST DISTILLERY in the world. These are moments from the Grand Opening. If you haven’t been to this bar, it’s a MUST SEE! Head to the South Slope today.

So much thought and detail went into the operation of this amazing endeavor and I couldn’t be more pleased for my clients turned friends.

This wedding at Claxton Farms was a beautiful thing. We used the fog for our benefit, to create some dreamy images of the couple and their wedding party. Loved the colors and sweet details added by Jess.

When I was asked by our long-time clients/friends to come to St Barths for an unforgettable vacation, I was grateful and thrilled for the opportunity to capture the experiences and bonds of this amazing group of friends.  I photographed their wedding over 10 years ago in film and I’ve followed their journey as a family, documenting their lives over the years. 

This trip was downright amazing. From the private plane from St. Martin to St. Barths to our Eden Rock home on top of a cliff overlooking  the most gorgeous scene imaginable.  I loved the people I was photographing and I will never forget the experience of this heavenly place.  

Shout out to our personal chef, David Lestas with Oui Chef who was truly remarkable. Having such awesome local food prepared was definitely a highlight!

Rachel and Steve will be married in spring of 2019 at Diana at Biltmore. We wanted to shoot in the gardens and some other fun spots a little off the beaten path with their adorable australian shepherd! I’m a real dog lover so this was a particularly fun shoot for me. With this kind of chemistry, I honestly can’t wait to capture their wedding. Weddings with Tara will be on hand to plan their event to a tee.

This space! I loved working with the amazing staff at Greystone Inn at Lake Toxaway for Meaghan’s bridal session. The giant windows and stonework were perfect locations for this shoot.
Much more to come on her wedding at Lake Toxaway Country Club.
