When I'm not in the Chik-fil-A drive thru, with my family or petting a stranger's puppy, I'm capturing images of the sweetest Southern love I can find. Here's a peek at the work I love to do and the people who don't make it feel like work at all.

Black Tie Spring Wedding at The Cornelius Properties in Goldsboro, NC / Kirsten + Bryce

Bryce and Kirsten were one of the kindest, most genuine couples I have worked with. They are one of those couples that you know go together. If I saw them two in a crowded room together I am guaranteed I would match them together. They made this wedding experience so much fun and soaked up every second of the day. As a bride and groom, everyone tells you to soak up the process and I felt they did exactly that.

The day started gloomy with a little drizzle, but that sure didn’t put a damper on their wedding day! All of the girls got ready in the honeymoon house and all of the guys got ready in the “camp” house. The day started so calm and collected and continued to flow that way! 

Bryce and Kirsten decided to do a private first touch with personal vows and it was a beautiful added addition to their day. Seeing all of their emotions come together moments before becoming one was so special and they will have these photos to bring them right back to that moment years from now.

During their ceremony, you could hear the birds happily chirping and the breeze was blowing. Right as they said “I Do” the clouds disappeared and the sun was shining bright. We all were hoping for some sunshine for portraits and we got exactly that. 

It was an honor to capture such a beautiful wedding day at The Cornelius Properties! I always enjoy working at this venue and this wedding was no different. Thank you Bryce and Kirsten for allowing me to preserve these memories for you and your families. And a huge thank you to all of the vendors that made this day happen!
