I’m always an advocate for the First Look for many, many reasons — but this sweet moment right before Lizzie and Wesley’s ceremony gives me all the feels! Cant wait to be back at @chestnutridgeevents tomorrow for a Christmas party 🎄🎉!!
Still wrapping up 2017 but so grateful for a long year filled with so many amazing couples! Come see Laura and Rich's dreamy engagement session at the Biltmore on the blog today!
Megan and Bradley's STUNNING wedding at the Highgrove Estate is on the blog today!! Megan had the best details throughout her entire wedding -- including her incredible blue shoes! This wedding was deeply rooted in love and family and one we will never forget!
Motherhood is tough, challenging, heart work, soul changing. I often lay my head down at night in complete exhaustion but I think of moments like tonight when Haddon said “bye” for the first time as we were leaving a store. Or how he peeks over the restaurant booth to wave at the strangers beside us with the biggest, most beautiful grin on his face and I’m so GRATEFUL the Lord gave us this precious boy! He continues to bring an indescribable joy to our lives and I keep kissing those little checks endlessly! #thehatleylife
Snow day #2 and Haddon loves sledding!! This little boy is so much fun and brings us all the joy❄️❤️
Snow days with this little babe are so much fun ❄️! #thehatleylife #haddonwayne
Lizzie made an absolutely stunning bride! I loved the feminine detail in her dress and the sheer sleeves! Since Haddon is being a champion napper, I'm scratching things off my to-do list like crazy today! Including a few changes to my Bridal Guide because I ran out and had to order more - which is a GREAT problem to have! Along with editing a wedding, I'm prepping to get all of my 2017 Brides a surprise gift in the mail! Just one more wedding next weekend and that's a wrap for our 2017 year, yay!! Ok.. as I'm typing this Haddon is waking up... dang, shouldn't have said anything about that champion napper 😆!
In case you missed it, Lauren and Bryan's engagement session at Black Balsam is fresh on the blog! They traveled all the way from Charlotte just for this location and I'm so glad they did!
Bryan had Lauren's ring custom designed with the diamond from her great grandmother's ring making it all the more special! Isn't that so special? I love it! Read more about their love story on the blog today where I'm sharing their engagement session at Black Balsam!
This year being a stay at home Mama and photographer has brought many new challenges. One being the realization that I can't do it all like my little heart thinks it can :). After talking with Mitchell, we decided it was best for me to keep my focus on my passion which is weddings and eliminate family sessions from my business. It has been SO HARD to say No - a word I'm not too familiar with - to family sessions but when one of your best friends needs Christmas cards you make it happen! Amelia and Haddon are just 3 months apart and play together all the time. I love seeing them grow up together! This family is SO SPECIAL to us and I can't get over how precious all of these photos are!! We love you, Lance's!
I’ve grown to really appreciate the simplicity in styling details and always felt that less is more 💕. Thankful that today is a day of rest and a day of less after a busy (but amazing!) couple of days of work! Today’s agenda: church, photos with @_saralance and then nothing but pj’s and cuddles with my boys! #sundays
Lizzie and Wesley are MARRIED!! Today was filled with so much love by so many people and we’re honored to have been apart of it!!
