the Journal

I love summer nights, quiet moments, genuine love, timeless stories, and the kind of dream clients who like to walk slow and stop to smell the Carolina Jasmine. If you're into photographs that feel as intentional as you are, you want your memories become history, and you'd like to make a new friends in the process, keep scrolling-- I can't wait to meet you.

What could be more romantic than a North Carolina mountain top proposal? Probably nothing in this world, except Logan and Austen’s entire love story.

North Carolina Mountain Top Proposal Logan + Austen


When one of your favorite places on earth is the beach, sometimes storms come and you worry about your home away from home.

Southern women are tied together with tradition, monograms and class. The moment I met Paige, I knew that she was my type of southern gal. She began telling me the details of her and Jared’s wedding day. They had booked Lockamy Plantation in Angier, NC for their perfect southern fairy tale. For her bridal portraits, […]

Sunflower Soaked Session | Herstory Portraits Sarah


When you stand at the edge of Harbor Town and gaze across the water, you’ll spot Daufuskie Island. Imagine a place nearly untouched by time. It’s only accessible by boat, and cars aren’t able to take the ferry ride over. Visitors grab a golf cart once they arrive, and they journey to their destination. This […]

If you’re able to turn one dream into a reality, then you’ve made it. That’s exactly what I thought to myself as the day of this Tybee Island Seaside Elopement came to a close. I thought “This is it. I’ve made it.” I had done something I’d always wanted to do. My soul lives and […]

What if we lived every day was like a wedding? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be surrounded by gorgeous flowers, white lace, a handsome husband looking his best and a constant party?
