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.

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, […]
